I think I could come in here a couple dozen times and always notice something unique that I missed before. A few very unusual diner options on the menu. A burger with a hot dog on top! I had the chile burger - great chile piled high over an open faced burger & bun. And... a whold bowl of fries... More

While the food is so-so, the atmosphere is unique and the service prompt. Interestingly, even if they are busy, the staff starts stacking chairs and closing about 8:30PM.

Stopped for lunch on way from San Diego to Scottsdale part of a large coach party, we had tables booked and the staff were very accommodating when we arrived, they were also extremely friendly and hard working. The food was very good and prompt. Take time to check out all the old posters, photographs and other weird things around the... More

Can't go wrong with the especial burger which has fried hot franks in it. Beer is good. Fun place to hang out and play pool.

Made a quick lunch stop enroute from SanDiego to Phoenix. Very fun old place with a relaxed vibe and great burgers and fries. Pleasant helpful servers and cashier. Great place for a quick bite and some smiles and local history!

This is authentic - a place that was once a casino - now is a restaurant, bar and poolroom. One might note that on entry into Yuma via 4th street off Hiway 8, to the left there is Lutes' Wedding Chapel. Both established by the same person 'back in the day" last century. Both still in business and yes!, You... More

Lutes Casino a staple in the Yuma community is the place to go for great eats and night life. Lutes have been in Yuma for over 80+ years. Their famous hamburgers continue to make Lutes the place to be.

When you walk into Lutes Casino, don't go in with the idea of playing a one armed bandit, but do expect to find things that you would never think of. Hanging all over the place are things that maybe some of you have never seen. You can spend hours looking and snooping at all the things in there. Besides all... More

A fun, loud, frenetic place for a sandwich and drink. Very casual, reasonably priced, eclectic decor. You gotta go at least once in your lifetime!
