In the back of the Nugget casino, it's a typical old diner. A bunch of tables and burgers and fries and stuff. Service was fine, though the place didn't feel very clean, the food was good and the prices were reasonable.

Don't miss this little gem of a place that serves the AWFUL (BIG) AWFUL (GOOD) BURGER. 1/2 lb Chuck Steak Hamburger (DELICIOUS) and 1 lb of Fries. Two people can easily share this one order but it was SO great. As seen on Food Network!

It was recommended to us by a local for best burger in town at a good price! He was right. It is a hole in the wall diner which is part of a very small casino. Good place to visit for local color.

This is the BEST AWFUL BURGER in town. It is so big you can share and still get enough to eat not to mention the huge serving of french fries that comes with the burger.
