I love the vibe of this place. It's full of hard core, serious gamblers. It's not full menu like a Vegas casino, just hold 'em, black jack, baccarat plus a variety Asian games involving dice (not craps) and dominoes of some sort. I have no...More

The restaurant in Artichoke Joe's could be considered a hidden gem. I don't gamble, but I have frequented the restaurant, which is open 24-hours and has good sized portions for very reasonable pricing. They sometimes serve some fancy entrees, like frog's legs and prime rib,...More

Best thing south of 101 Casino near Petaluma and west of Carson City and Lake Tahoe. Unlike Nevada casinos, plan on buying your own beverages and smoking outside.

This menu has a lot of everything, breakfast, chinese food, american classics, burgers, etc and all in a dingy poorly lit cardroom setting. When you can't decide on any one cuisine go here and everyone will be happy. Good portions, good price.

The food is decent and available 24/7. The security are a group of buttwipes though. And I wouldn't recommend you go gambling there. Check out Lucky Chances in Daly City/Colma instead. Just my PERSONAL OPINION.
