Their restaurant with seating for 30 inside and 50 outside with a fire pit and pet-friendly patio is the first new commercial construction there in decades offering a dining destination for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

  1. Siverton buffet gets very crowded and I would advise you to get in line at approximately 10:45am in order to be seated at the time the buffet opens at 11:00am.

    If one gets there later, the restaurant fills and as a result, the waiting time to seated will take from 45 minutes to one hour.

  2. I have been using Restaurant.Com since arriving in LV and it's a fabulous site with wonderful discounts on excellent restaurants! The one thing I noticed was that it is important to read the "restrictions" so that you know exactly what you are doing. Thank you for the information on this and other bargain dining.
    While I'm commenting I would like to say THANK YOU for providing a site to residents in Sun City that is positive in every way. I left college years ago and certainly do not need negative comments, particularly name pointing, at residents that i have met at various venues. Shamefully, this happens here and as a relatively new resident, I find it inexcusable. Praise in public and admonish in private would be the professional way to handle things.
    Good luck with this new web site, it is interesting and enjoyable. L.Wong

  3. For those who don't want to drive to Twain for Great New York Deli. There is "THE Best" New Youk Deli on the corner of Green Valley Parkway and Sunset Called Weiss's Deli. It has been there for over 30 years and by far has the best Corned Beef,Chicken Matzo Ball soup, and Chopped Liver in Las Vegas by far. Growing up with parents who ran Delis in California..I know of what I speak. Enjoy :)

  4. We went to the Rio for the Carnival Buffet. The choices are impressive and the QUALITY is excellent. This is the best bargain for a FINE experience we have seen lately. Advise everyone to try it.

  5. 400 points - that is about $ 1.20 in point value. Think it should say 4000.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Nope, it's 400. To get the 400 points, I believe you have to push $400 though the machines to obtain them. Not sure of the actual amount, but once you get the 400 points, you get the freebie lunch. You keep the points.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 400 points means that you have to push a total of $ 400 thru the machine (makes no difference where $ are coming from - i.e. your pocket or some winning spins).
      Your REAL cost depends on your luck while playing that day and if luck is not in your side that day:
      Your food could cost you several times more than paying cash.

  7. Not at the Silverton in April. No gambing is required, nor must points be used to get the 50% specials on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday during the month.

    Green Valley requires points, even on Senior Days. The M Requires points to get discounts as well.

    ...and Vic...well, you get a whopping 15% off of the entre, and I stress ENTREE only, if you're a resident, eat at a specific time, and on top of that, get a reduced meal portion.

    ...and here's one, no one realizes.

    Did you know that somehow, within the Vic's lease agreement, THE DISCOUNT ALSO APPLIES TO RMI EMPLOYEES....but not your guests ????
