RENO RECOMMENDED

compiled by Tress, Josh, and Pete

RESTAURANTS

Little Nugget – 233 N. Virginia across from Harrah’s. The Awful Awful is the best burger in town, without question. There’s another place down the street from Club Underground called Big Ed’s Alley Inn that has a burger on its lunch menu that rivals, but fails to surpass, the Awful Awful. Plus, the AA is cheap!
Beto’s Mexican Food – 575 W 5th St 324-0632—Cheap burritos, affordable combo plates, a few blocks west of Virginia Street.
Los Cuatro Vientos – on Casazza, next to the Alibi — has taken over as my favorite mexican place in town. Beware, though, we tend to call it Los Cuarenta Vientos
Taco’s El Rey – 2145 Sutro St # 1, Reno, NV 89512, (775) 323-0882—The best tacos in town, $1 a piece, but you’ll have to take a cab. It’s a bit of a walk from downtown.
Pho 777 – 201 E 2nd St, Reno, NV 89501, (775) 323-7777—Tasty Vietnamese food smack in the middle of downtown Reno. Old place burnt down in a fire started by a crack head in the flop house above the restaurant. New building is more spacious. Friends from England marvelled at the bargain basement prices on all menu items.
Peg’s Glorified Ham & Eggs – 420 S Sierra St, Reno – (775) 329-2600—Esquire Magazine ranked it among the top 50 breakfast places in the USA. It’s more expensive than the casino coffee shops, but the Sierra Omelette is well worth the extra $$.
Daughters Cafe – 97 Bell St, Reno, NV 89503, (775) 324-3447—A few blocks from downtown. Great homemade breakfasts and lunches. Shurred eggs are go!
Java Jungle – 246 W 1st St, Reno, NV 89501, (775) 329-4484—Coffee in downtown that’s not Starbucks. Try the Mexican latte.
Bibo Coffee – 680 Mount Rose St, Reno, NV 89509, (775) 329-2114—Best coffee in Reno and the walk there takes you through one of Reno’s oldest neighborhoods.
Pneumatic Diner – 501 W 1st St, Reno, NV 89503, (775) 786-8888—Vegetarian restaurant in the Truckee River Motor Lodge. Microwave cooking at it’s finest and a strong cup of joe. (VEGGIE)
Bangkok Cuisine – 55 Mount Rose St, Reno, NV 89509, (775) 322-0299—Delicious Thai food. (VEGGIE OPTIONS)
