Yeah, they moved it out of Harrah's and into it's own building.

I know! I know!

Nugget Diner

Whoa, now I'm confused. Is there a Nugget in downtown Reno, too? Or is it the Golden Nugget? I thought Sparks was the only John Ascuaga Nugget?

BTW, have you seen this:

The Awful-Awful burger is also available at the various coffee shops in the Nugget in Sparks. Same burger as the diner downtown. Still, the old downtown Nugget is worth a look as it's old and seedy in a good way - you can pretend your a private eye in an old movie staying up all night looking for leads so you stop in for a coffee and a hamburger sandwich. The counter is small and the seats are often all taken (it was when I was there).

The oyster bar in the Sparks Nugget is a must! They make these incredible oyster stews (crab and clams too) and everything is real fresh, and much cheaper than it is in San Francisco. I couldn't believe it existed in Reno until I went for myself. I have also heard good things about the steakhouse at the Nugget but have not tried it. Next time I'll skip the hit or miss food at Trader Dick's and have a steak instead.

Yes, no and it is. Read this.

Great article. The little Nugget downtown is just a little casino and tiny diner in back - no hotel.

The auto collection at Reno is owned by the same people who own the one at the Imperial Palace. I think that both combined are the Harrah's collection.

I see that the Bellamy Brothers are playing at the Nugget when your there Martin. Are you going to "Let your love flow"? Oops, that didn't come out right.

Well, for all of you who want to see what the Daly City Peppermill is like, and hang out with the Mig and about 30 of our friends (and no - thankfully NO flat screen tv in the bar!! - Just flaming water), here's the evite!

I'll be ordering a bloody steak and the bluest non-alkie drink they have... oh, and there may be bowling afterward at the googie-ish alley nearby. For those still standing...

I agree with the jab - the flamingo pool is one of the nicest ones. Sure the Hard Rock is beautiful. But the landscaping, penguins AND sheer energy of the land where the pool is built (Bugsy's old digs) is just very special.
And I think i saw that show 10 years ago! It was very good...
They have great mid-week rates right now.
