As we were driving to Las Vegas last Feb, it was lunch time and we stopped at Fiesta Henderson. We used our coupon from the American Casino Guide book for a wonderful lunch in the cafe. Food was great, service was great... we will go back again.
Cafe Fiesta opened in 2013 in the space formerly occupied by a Denny's. In March (2013) my wife and I dropped in for breakfast on a Tuesday when seniors (50+) enjoy ½ point dining. We found the restaurant to be bright and open. We each ordered easy over eggs, wheat toast, hash browns and bacon. The eggs were perfect, the bacon crispy, the hash browns tasty, but the bread was barely toasted. We weren't the only one disappointed in the toast because we overheard a nearby customer sending his back to kitchen. The 2014 American Casino Guide includes a coupon good for $10 off a $20 purchase.
We have dined several times at Fuego and enjoyed our meals, but prices have increased and it is now ala carte except for (4) 3-course meals priced at $27 each including prime rib, but there is an asterisk indicating “when available”. We happened to be in the casino on a Saturday night (March 2013) and inquired whether the prime rib would be offered the following day which was Easter Sunday. We were assured yes, so I made a reservation. The next evening I ordered the prime rib only to be told the kitchen was temporarily out of it. My educated guess is because there were only no other reservations and only 2 tables occupied, the chef made a decision not to roast a prime rib.
My wife ordered the prime, filet style, sirloin accompanied by a humongous sweet potato and baby carrots. I went with the evening's special, a braised lamb shank with roasted potatoes and baby carrots. Each of our entrees turned out to be pretty good though I was a bit surprised the lamb shank was served plain rather than in its braising liquid. We concluded the meal with a pair of excellent desserts, crème brulee for the lady and fresh berries in Grand Marnier sauce for your humble reporter. We paid with slot points and enjoyed our dining experience.
The slot club is consolidated with Stations. $1 coin-in yields = 3 Points for pay schedules under 100% and 1000 points equal $1 (0.30%) in cash, free play or comps. For 100% plus schedules, $4 coin-in = 3 points yielding a 0.075% return. Double points are periodically offered. Locals can swipe their cards at a kiosk, but non locals must go to the slot club to earn double points. The senior day was recently changed to Tuesdays.
The modern sports book is relatively large and includes 4 giant-screen TVs, 25 HD Plasma TVs and almost 100 individual monitors. A hot dog cart is operated during games, but is best avoided since the hot dogs are prepared ahead of time and wrapped in aluminum foil.
Low end dining choices
Prior to being acquired by Station Casinos, the Festival buffet was good choice, but it is now so mediocre that I won’t dine there even for free. Fast food options in the food court include a Villa Pizza, Fatburger, Subway and Starbucks. The large coffee shop is now operated as a Denny’s – enough said.
Full Pay VP
Though I no longer stay at the Fiesta, I continue to do the majority of my gambling at this casino because of the abundance of full pay video poker schedules. I exclusively play FPDW, but anyone seeking full pay DB, JW, LDW, DDB, TDW, TB, NSUD and SDB schedules should be happy here. The casino is rarely busy so finding a seat is not usually a problem.
Resort fee detracts
We have stayed in the hotel numerous times both before and after Station Casinos acquired the property, but not in recent years. The reasons we stopped include the introduction of a $9.99 (plus tax) resort fee and below average quality of the rooms. Amenities are limited to a 12-theater movie complex, self parking garage and a small pool
Pluses and minuses
This casino opened its doors as the Reserve in 1998 and shortly thereafter I started playing there because of the large inventory of full pay machines. Room rates in those days were low, the buffet was great and their comp policies were liberal. Station Casinos acquired the property in 2001 and subsequently expanded the casino floor, added a movie complex and food court plus a self parking garage. On the negative side, room rates were increased, a resort fee added, the buffet deteriorated and comp policies became more conservative.
Gone from good to bad
This casino was originally the Reserve where full pay video poker ruled, the employees were friendly and the buffet was one of the best in Las Vegas. Enter Stations Casino and the only the VP survives.
Room quality has deteriorated even during a full scale renovation. The expansion that includes a covered parking lot, expansion of the sports book and casino does not offset the other negatives.
