Arrived at Reno late, so nipped out to little nugget diner and glad we did.. The Awful Awful was great, and the mozzarella sticks where class! Shame about the stale smoke smell of place but that is a bit of the character I suppose.

This place is at the back of a small, smelly and dirty casino where the local dregs drink I'm assuming cheep. That being said the dinner itself looks pretty clean, you can either sit at the counter or at the tables, if you sit at...More

We went to the diner based on other Trip Advisor reviews. When we entered through the smokey dark casino my wife and daughter were leery but seated ourselves at the counter and were not disappointed. Friendly wait staff and the food was priced low with...More

I found myself hungry and waiting for a show to start at the Virginia St Brewhouse when I decided to go have an iconic Awful Awful from the Little Nugget. I had my fair share of them many years ago when I was carousing throughout...More
