This is hands down my favorite casino in Las Vegas. Everyone that works at this place is friendly and treats everyone like friends and they have good video poker. But my favorite part is the microbrewery, it's amazing beer and if you are playing the machines its free. As long as you like good beer and good video poker You have to make the 5 minute trip off the strip to this place adn check it out.
i had a short but sweet visit as i wanted my sister to see this iconic casino. as always the food and beer are a great value and tasty. there is still a bank of 9/6 vp job machines. they added a sandwiches shop. they also have 10x points on some machines and various offers from the kiosh machines
There are 2 bars – a main bar and a karaoke bar. The ACG and LVA free drinks coupons are only accepted at the main bar located near the BBQ/Metro Pizza, but you are free to bring the drinks into the karaoke lounge. Several in-house brewed beers are available with my favorite being the Hefe Weiss. In addition, a root beer is brewed in-house and available for takeout. There are a few seasonal drinks including an egg nog that is outstanding and best ordered on the rocks. I believe it is available from sometime in mid-to-late November until it runs out, usually after the New Year. A twisted tea is currently offered, but I found it to be disappointing.
The restaurant serves reasonably priced food. We almost always have at one least breakfast there on each trip using the ACG 2/1 coupon. Our particular favorites are the buttermilk pancakes, 2 eggs any style and the cinnamon vanilla French toast - each priced at only $3.99. Though there have been many complaints about service, we have encountered few problems in the morning. Ellis also has a BBQ restaurant which features very good ribs, but the sides are disappointing. There is often a line for both restaurants. The Metro Pizza outlet is just okay IMHO. A recent dining addition (Feb 2012) is the Boardhouse Serious Sandwiches which we have are not tempted to try.
