We came up to the Thunder Valley to go to a Big Bad Voodoo Daddy show, which was great. However the show was in a tent which was not very comfortable for a show.
We had dinner in the coffee shop (Thunder Cafe?) and the food was very good and prices were reasonable, under $10 per person. I had an excellent cheeseburger that I think was about $8 or $9. They were very busy. Service was a bit slow but our waitress was very friendly.
Caution for those who don't like smoky casinos. Since Native American casinos are the only places where people can legally smoke indoors in California, they are basically an entire state's worth of smoking in one room.
Please ignore my ratings of slots, players' club, and atmosphere as I didn't use any of them. I will say that I saw very few video poker machines, pretty much everything there is slots.
Thunder Valley Is The Best Place For Slots and Fun

This is the only place I go to play slots. They have the best variety of slots including what seems like hundreds of penny slots. The atmosphere is fun, free soda and coffee at the drink station, Fatburger! I swear the hotel is better than the Luxor in Vegas.
