Desert Diamond Casino Agave Restaurant needs to upgrade their menu. It would be nice to see one or two weekly specials instead of the same ol' items. Also it is cold. On a hot evening, you need to remember to bring a jacket or spend...More

Hey, it's a buffet. Many were very good dishes, some were not as appealing to me tonight. There was a choice of 2 reasonably good soups plus an ample salad bar. Overall, good for a meal not cooked at home. On Wednesdays, there is currently...More

We went here because it was very near our airport hotel. I couldn't find a $5 blackjack table so I only played slots and lost a bit. The casino is smaller than most Las Vegas properties, but it wasn't too small. One of the best...More

The property has a nice poker room and also a Bingo parlor. I felt they had a nice selection of slot machines. We used our $10 free play and actually came out ahead for the night.

Played video black jack and slots. Stay away from the penny slots - confusing and not fun. As you would expect, lots of cigarette smoke. Had most fun playing quarter slots.

We stop there for lunch and to lose $20 on the slots when we are in that area. The casino smells of smoke, but not as bad as some. Still, if you are a non-smoker it isn't a pleasant experience. Come on, make it non-smoking...More

I think best seating is about 5 rows back center stage, if you can get them. It is a good view of all performers. Of course different performers move around, but there you can still see them. If you are extreme right or... More
