Dining options

We have dined at the Sourdough Café, Wild West buffet and Yukon Grill.

The Sourdough café’s ham or steak with eggs breakfast has been a long running “best breakfast special”. Hours are Monday - Friday, 6am - 12am, Saturday - Sunday, 24 Hours. I rated our one breakfast of bacon & eggs as 2 Forks on a scale 0-5 Forks.

The one and only time we dined at the buffet was during breakfast and it was comparable to Terrible’s and that is not a compliment. The breakfast buffet is now only offered Fri + Sat.

A better choice is the Yukon Grill where we have dined a ½ dozen times. Though our experiences have been generally good, the filet mignon on our last visit was not very good and I rated our meal 1 Fork out of a possible 5. The restaurant serves typical American fare and is currently only open Thur-Sun for dinner 5-10PM. Prices are reasonable and on Thur and Sundays a prix fixe meal is offered for $17.72.

Other dining options include a Sbarro’s and a deli which we have not visited.

Slot club (ACE) members receive 25% off the buffet and 10% off the other company owned dining outlets.

The 2012 ACG has a 2 for 1 coupon for the buffet.

VP downgraded

We used to frequent this casino because of the availability of 9/6 JOB video poker, generous slot club benefits and advantageous casino promotions. I won a few drawings for small amounts and my wife hit once for a $1,000. We stopped visiting the casino after the video poker schedules and slot benefits were slashed. Per VPFee2 the best games are 25 cents, 9/6 JOB at located on 4 machines with $8 coin in good for 1 point.

Only if on a budget

We used to frequent this casino years ago before the video poker pay schedules were slashed and slot club benefits diminished. Located on the Boulder Highway, Arizona Charlies’ (AC) nearest competitors are Sams Town, Eastside Cannery and Boulder Station. American Casino Entertainment, an investment vehicle of Carl Ichan, owns this property along with the Stratosphere and sister property AC (Decatur).

Hotel

We stayed a two nights at AC a few years ago and did not like the rooms. There are 3 buildings which were constructed as a long-term stay complex that I believe went into bankruptcy before ever opening. No resort fee was charged.

Our room was classified as a suite, but was probably of average size, just broken into a small sitting room and an equally small bedroom. There may have been a renovation since our stay, but at the time the furniture and carpeting were worn. Our room faced the parking lot nearest the casino and was quite noisy on the weekend. People staying here are on a budget. Amenities include a small pool.

Breakfast Special Paradise!

Ok, here's my disclaimer right off the bat; I have never stayed in their hotel so I can't speak on it. We do however, go there every time we go to Las Vegas, mainly for their $2.99 ham & eggs or the $3.99 steak and eggs breakfast special. They're very good and available any time. AND...you can go up the covered garage to the top and final level which I believe is the 4th floor, and park on the west in right by a door the goes into the restaurant!

We have played slots there and they were ok. This is one of those places that has a substantial number of locals about any time you go, and a lot of older folks (like me?). My wife plays bingo and she played there once...it was about average.

So go there for the breakfast (any time!) and the rest, it's up to you.

Good value for the money

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights last year. We stayed her because of the rates. We didn't expect the Taj Mahal. The room was adequate and clean.

The casino is very very small. We did not play here much, but when we did we didn't hit anything.

We only ate at the 24 hour cafe. We found the breakfasts to be an exceptional value. I had a steak and eggs for around $5 or less. Our waiter was excellent. We would stay here again.
