Traveling on business, my brother took me to Rail City (one of his favorites). Got me signed up for their players club. Had a great time, easy parking, easy access and great food too.

The buffet at Rail City. Located in the Rail City Casino. This was a 1950's casino, the buffet was dimmly lit. The carved top round was cold, the ribs were smoked so long that they fell off the bone, you would think that was a...More

This is an out-of-the-way spot which is worth the drive. Great for families on a budget. Simple buffet food, but very cheap. Breakfast is best.

Tables & slots without the sparkle. Buffet looked primitive, basic. Played Blackjack for a few hours and had fun ($5 tables), dealers friendly, cards did not cooperate. Local incentives. Just down the road from the Nugget. Lots of parking available.
