City: Las Vegas
Casino: Arizona Charlie's Decatur
Arizona Charlie's Decatur is a locals casino situated 3 miles or so roughly due west of the Las Vegas Premium Outlet Mall, which (in case you are not familiar with it) is between I-15 and Main Street, half a dozen blocks before you get to Fremont Street. That should give you a vague idea of the casino's location, suitable for the purposes of this thread. If you plan to go there, you can look for your own, better directions. Perhaps this is an appropriate place to ask the question: What's the deal with "locals" casinos having hotels? Other than the Wizard doing a review, do folks regularly need hotel rooms in the town where they live? Sounds more like a topic that suggests secret liaisons, doesn't it?
Back more on topic, at their café, they regularly run a $2.99 (with player's card), 24-hour breakfast deal that includes two eggs, hash browns and choice of bacon or sausage and toast or biscuit and gravy. I think you can get it with a ham steak for $3.99. Now that's a deal you can hardly beat for the combination of food quantity, quality, and price. Unfortunately, this is a locals place, and a deal like that attracts people who bring their twelve screaming kids along for the chance to dine out. Let Dad gamble a little while Mom wrangles the rug rats in the café. At least that was what I encountered on my only visit. YMMV.
Just to stomp all over the Wizard's "I'll focus on the actual casino names" approach, I checked Wikipedia, looking for some info on the origin of the name. Along the way, I learned that the place was originally constructed as a bowling alley in 1963, with the casino added on in 1988. A casino expansion in 1994 involved demolition of the bowling alley and some adjacent businesses. The name is supposedly a reference to the original owner's distant relative "Arizona" Charlie Meadows, who performed in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. Don't blame me if that is untrue; I just stole it from Wiki.
As has been the case with so many other casinos, the ownership of this one went through bankruptcy, with the major creditor claiming the lion's share of ownership. Unless something has changed since I last checked, this casino, its namesake across town (look for that chip tomorrow, along with comments on alphabetizing), and the Stratosphere are under the same ownership now.
Since I asked the question about Aliante Station, I'll repeat it here: How many members here have ever made it to Arizona Charlie's Decatur?
Edit 3/28/12: I have just received from rdw4potus the links to some images of his chips from casinos that I have already passed in this thread. Thanks, rdw! I am editing my posts to include his images, such as this one:
