Awful, If You Ask Me
Brought my wife here to try out a locals spot, and this is anything but. It was so much better before the new manager and it will be so much better after him. Until then, go to GSR. Baldini's has ruined one of what I thought would be my favorite spots.
Horrible Staff, Horrible Food, Horrible Games
My review of Baldinis casino in Sparks, NV stems from after the takeover of the fat and lazy casino manager, Barry. The food specials are all but gone. While the comps have increased, so have the prices, and there are definitely stipulations about what the comps are good for and when they're good. The payout of the slots at Baldinis in Sparks are some of the most awful in the Sierras. They had some extensive payouts the previous year, then took them well below the standards, but no one reports them to the gaming commission. In most cases, there are always dozens of broken machines, and unattentive slot attendants that are only there for a paycheck. Barry is a loser and kisses up to the 10 cent betters that have low-end player cards. This casino is a waste of time and money. Baldinis is officially the worst casino in Reno.
Empire Diner is great
Please disregard all ratings except food. The only reason I have been to Baldini's is to eat at the Empire Diner, which I have done on multiple occasions and have always left with my expectations exceeded. If you come during their 2-for-1 specials, which is breakfast before 10 am or early dinner, you will probably pay less for your meal than you would in a third world country. (2 large breakfasts for $4.99!) Generally when I buy a cheap breakfast like that I'm expecting greasy eggs, white toast, and tater tots, but the food at the Empire is of a very high standard, and plenty of it too. It's a kid-friendly restaurant even though it is in the casino (close to the entrance). It's also a good place for dinner. The fried chicken is delicious and the salads are fresh.
Since joining the player's club previously, we now get coupons in the mail. The latest mailing had a coupon for a free burger basket (a $1.99 value) and a message saying we had $10 free ecash to use . When we stopped by earlier this year, we noticed a sign saying a Hooter's Restaurant was going to be built there.
