Just order one breakfast and a small side dish and share it with your others. There is plenty of good food for two!

The restaurant is located in the same building as Cactus Petes. Go in through the Casino entrance vs. the hotel entrance. Very large dining area, friendly staff and good sized portions for the price.

The Desert Room has a fabulous breakfast menu, but limited offerings otherwise. Jackpot overall has limited choices for dining, but you can count on the Desert Room for decent, albeit average food. I ordered a portabello mushroom sarnie, which was OK, but the waffle fries were soggy. My husband had a hot beef sarnie which was quite good, but the... More

Wasn't very organized the night we had dinner. Two tables that came in after us were waited on and served before they finally served us. The food was fair, chicken was undercooked. You're kind of a captive clientele. Not much to choose from around there. Ya get what you get.

Stopped by after I found myself in town from exploring the area. Seating and food was fast. Above average fare - plentiful and tasty. I had the build-it-yourself breakfast - something from this column and something from that column. Zero complaints, would certainly go back.

This food is wonderful. We had the chowder soup, the chili, a spinach salad and a patty melt. The wait staff, Alfredo & Blanca, were all you could ask for, well-trained and friendly. We had traveled from Las Vegas, going toward Idaho Falls, on US 93, the highway from hell. It is beautiful, but a dangerous zombie-apocalypse of insane deer... More

It was hard to decide what to eat. There are many wonderful choices and friendly, knowledgeable staff. I highly recommend this restaurant. Thus far have tried some of the food which was not a disappointment, the presentation of the food makes this place even more appealing. Also I highly recommend the Bloody Mary. Yum!

We ate several meals here during our two day stay. They really have good food. They give you a good size portion. Everything is cooked so fresh and I love their food. I ordered a Monte Cristo, a sandwich that several restaurants make but do them wrong. A Monte must be dipped in batter and deep fried. That is how... More
