Nevada Appeal Staff Reports

“For the food and the price, you can’t beat it,” said regular customer Gordon Shackles. “We come here for lunch pretty often and for dinner quite a bit too.”

Fear not if the counter is full – there’s plenty of seating at nearby tables.

Serving Carson City locals since 1973, “The Friendliest Casino In Town” lives up to its name.

“One thing’s for sure: This place definitely has the friendliest employees,” Shackles said.

Sue Riley has been working the counter for almost seven years.

“She’s the best cook in town -no maybe about it,” said Shackles. On Thursdays, Riley makes her popular egg salad.

“It’s something different,” she said with a shrug.

Waitress Debbie Crockett is relatively new to the Horseshoe.

“I’ve only been here three months -but I been doin’ this for 30 years,” she said.

At lunchtime Thursday, she greeted a regular.

“Hi, Fred!”

“Hey, Debbie!”

She fixed his BLT just the way he likes it: dry (with no mayo).

“And I remembered the no pickle,” she said as she laid strips of bacon on wheat toast with tongs.

Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the Horseshoe Club prides itself on quality meals at bargain prices.

The pancake breakfast special is two huge pancakes, two eggs and your choice of bacon or sausage for $2.50. Add 18 cents tax, and you’re out the door for $2.68, never to be hungry again – until the sun comes up tomorrow. Biscuits and gravy are also a popular choice for breakfast.

Lunch is served from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Schedule a hump-day lunch date – Wednesday’s special is a bowl of soup and a half a sandwich for $1.50.

Specials are the order of the day at the “friendliest casino.” A weekday senior special is half a sandwich and a cup of soup for $1.50.

Nightly dinner specials are $4.95, said Bill Holbert, general manager. Monday and Wednesday are steak nights; Tuesday, it’s chicken fried steak; shrimp night is Thursday; and every Friday there’s a different homemade meal.
