They offer great specials everyday and the portion sizes are huge! Friendly staff, nice gaming area, a little out dated but it is still quite nice.

If you happen to be anywhere near Fernley, NV between 2 and 4 pm, Monday through Friday, don't miss one of the greatest food specials around. I am not a great fan of eating in a casino, but this deal is too great to miss. If you go into the Chuck Wagon Cafe between 2 and 4 (3:45 to be... More

The staff here was so nice and helpful! When they saw me heading in with my kids they stayed open and were so nice offering food suggestions and hotel suggestions. I got the breakfast platter and let me tell you it was the best $3.00 I've spent in a long time!

Every Friday Pioneer Crossing has a great Prime Rib buffet. Salad fixings, choice of potatoes, even something for those who prefer not to eat the Prime Rib. The best part is the price. Can't take it with you, but you will certainly eat your fill. Get there early as everyone in Fernley knows this is the place to eat on... More

Our steak was a little more done than ordered and the waitress was right on top of it suggesting a better quality steak and getting our food replaced. You couldn't ask for better staff. I had...
