The newest casino to come to Elko, Nevada, makes up for its small size (it’s in an old IGA grocery store building) with a fairly respectable restaurant within its walls. The Grill, as it is called, has roughly the same amount of seating as its rivals Red Lion and Stockmen’s, but not as much as JR’s Bar & Grille in the Gold Country Casino.
Comfort food seems to be necessary these days. What struck me as ironic was that the Lakeside Mall, where I worked my first real job with Target, was a collection of dirt piles. Gone too was my Rocky where I found that want ad pulled pork chili Paul Harvey whom I listened to on the way to work. Good thing there was smoke and sunshine in the air, for a moment it must have got in my eyes.
They have a large staff and the food is served quickly. I recommend their seafood enchiladas and their slow cooker bbq barbecue pulled pork entrees which are about $18-$25 a plate. It is well worth it though.

An entire family meal which includes slow cooker bbq pulled pork meats such as baby back ribs or chicken, baked beans, coleslaw, mashed potatoes, and bread is reasonably priced and the meal really goes a long way.

One of the best hot spots for burgers in Kingman AZ is Chuy’s Mesquite Broiler. If you are driving around town with your window open all you have to do is follow your nose to find the place. The smell of mesquite-fired burgers is maddening if you have not eaten all day. The interior of the restaurant is cheerfully decorated with a surf theme so well done you would swear you were on the beach. Check out the tongue-in-cheek graffiti on the walls. The burgers are hearty and satisfying. Don’t be afraid to ask about the draft-on-tap specials.

Cooking Methods – It’s not easy to pin down a cooking method to any one state or region. Grilling, smoking, roasting, or braising are not uncommon to any region. But smoky pits or slow roasting would have been the preferred method by many of our settlers around the countryside, and now their ancestors may still use those exact same methods. It’s still hard to prove any method belongs to any particular region. Even though Memphis is famous for their smoky grilling pits, you’ll find those same pits all around the south. Of course, using your crockpot isn’t an ancient method, so the origin of this method is obviously widespread.
