Traveling on business, my brother took me to Rail City (one of his favorites). Got me signed up for their players club. Had a great time, easy parking, easy access and great food too.

This is an out-of-the-way spot which is worth the drive. Great for families on a budget. Simple buffet food, but very cheap. Breakfast is best.

Tables & slots without the sparkle. Buffet looked primitive, basic. Played Blackjack for a few hours and had fun ($5 tables), dealers friendly, cards did not cooperate. Local incentives. Just down the road from the Nugget. Lots of parking available.

This was the first casino we had ever been in. It was a bit smokey. Some of the clientele were a little on the edge and I was a little uncomfortable here. We played a few games and left ahead of the game.

Everytime I go I see some type of shady deal taking place either in the parking lot or right inside. The BBQ place is pretty good though.

This is actually for their restaurant. We have eaten there several times and they let anyone 50+ eat off the Senior menu. Fish and chips, Chicken Caesar salad, and $3 pie are on this menu. Food is consistently good, and the staff is friendly.
