Ok, here's the deal: we were driving by Skyline and saw an incredible special for dinner so we stopped. If you look up "local casino" in the dictionary, I'm sure you will see a picture of this place. It has no hotel, it's purely a local hangout. Not fancy at all, this place is not for the faint of heart. If you love places like Mandalay Bay and Bellagio, you'll hate Skyline. It's smokey, has low ceilings, and has mostly slots and a few tables. But if you want character, this might be a fun place to stop.
The steak special was about $6 each for a 18 ounce T-bone. We got in line and realized we'd have to wait a while, they told us about 45 minutes...so we started playing video poker. Sitting next to me was a scruffy looking guy who was playing two machines as fast as lightening. He was very "blue collar" with long, stringy hair and looked like hadn't shaved in 3 months. He and I started talking and his name was "Tuffy". When I told Tuffy we were waiting for a table he said "Well, they know me here, let me see what I can do!". He got up, went to the hostess, then they called out name next! We got such a kick out of it. This Tuffy guy who looked like he may have just been paroled, had the "juice" around that place and got us our seat.
And the T-bone steak dinner was great. It was a fun experience all the way around. So if you ever go to Skyline, try to find Tuffy. You'll get the best service!
The name says a lot -- The Skyline Restaurant and Casino. The Skyline's best point is their restaurant. The room is bright and clean and not at all cramped. The Prime Rib Dinner was one of the best I've ever had for any price. And the price is a bargain! Other menu items were well prepared with fresh ingredients. Try the Strawberry Shortcake for dessert!
The casino is small with maybe 400 machines. There is some full-pay video poker. The machines are older and they are still coin in/out. Some of the slots are newer with ticket-in/out but this is really an economy place with a largely local clientele. They do offer entertainment -- again aimed at the locals.
It is located on the Boulder Highway near Sunset. That makes it an easy drive from Boulder Strip joints like Cannery East, Sam's Town and Boulder Station. It is just minutes off the 215 and Sunset interchange. It is worth the trip if you like good food at very reasonable prices and don't mind eating and playing like the "real" locals do.
