The atmosphere is excellent, full of history and great decor. The food is great. If you are ever in Yuma, you have to stop by and visit this place. It is definitely original.

Went to enjoy dinner before attending a show at Yuma Historical Theater which is located right across the street. I asked if it was a Casino and was told NO. Just a name. It is cute with a jail theme. Even the cashier is inside...More

Lutes casino was recommended by some local folks we met at the date farm. We thought it actually was a casino. It’s an old time looking restaurant. Lots of memorabilia. The food was excellent. Downtown area was a fun experience. We would recommend.More

Proudly feeding Yuma, AZ since the early 1940s, Lutes Casino remains a local dining institution! Our eclectic atmosphere and fun pool hall games make us a destination unlike any other in the area. Stop by today! Over the years, we have collected memorabilia from all over - and it's all over our walls. Our service is local and friendly, our drinks cold, and our food fresh. Try our famous potato tacos or the popular Lutes Especial which has been our signature burger since 1951 featuring a cheeseburger and hot dog combination not for the faint of heart. When you come to Yuma, there's no question - Lutes Casino is a must-try!
