The awful awful at Little Nugget is awfully huge. It is very good and you will probably not be able to eat it all....they give you more fries than I've seen in one portion. Not a very nice looking place you wouldn't go there unless...More

small atmosphere but amazingly delicious food. We have had breakfast and the Awful Awful all great. Eat and enjoy. Best be prepared to take your food to go due to limited seating.

This place is a "hole in the wall" cafe in a casino. You get large portions. I got the fish and chips with a garden salad. It was a lot of food for one person. If I stop there again, I would ear there

Pulling an all nighter through Reno, we knew we had to eat here, so we stopped and walked down the alley to find this gem. The burger...good night! I tried both an Awful Awful burger and a Calamari sandwich, both were amazing.

This is the last little casino still operating in Reno. All the rest are big fancy corporate types. I have been here off and on for several years. This is where the locals go when they get off work, right across from Harrahs. Nice little...More

Stay away..... far away, unless you have an affinity for a large group of people down on their luck in a smelly, dirty establishment. They advertise cheap food, but the hospital bill from eating here could cost you more!

The Awful Awful Burger is an outstanding sandwich served in a small casino diner in downtown Reno.  I first saw it featured on an episode of Food Wars.  I'm a frequent visitor to Reno but had never heard of the Awful Awful, so on my...More

Way beyond being a dive, this place is the pits, but in a good way. Local as it can be, the must try is the Awful Awful Burger, 8 ounces of beef with enough French fries to last until your next paycheck. The beef was...More

This was a very good spot for a cheap late night burger or a cheap breakfast. It's still an OK place but it has lost its luster. The cooking staff is different and I think it's owned by someone else now. Change is not always...More
