Every Wednesday they have a great special. Burgers are 2 for 1 burgers (or 1/2 off). You do not have to buy 2 burgers to get 1/2 off. Daniels is located in the Regency Casino, which is the smallest one on Casino Drive. The restaurant itself is in the corner of the Casino and has become a local favorite due to their great prices and good food. Decor is just basic tables and booths. There is a good view of the River and mountains at the back of the restaurant. Staff is very friendly and prompt. Service was fast despite the place being 3/4 full.

They have a large selection of burgers (over 15 options at last check) ranging from the Basic Burger to Jalapeno Burger to the Popeye Burger. Just about anything you can imagine can come on your burger. Being a bit traditional one of us ordered just the Basic Burger (not even any cheese). This is a great way to get the taste of how good the beef is. We also tried the Jalapeno burger and the Mushroom Swiss Burger. All three were delicious and come with a side of fries. (You can upgrade from regular fries to other options for a small nominal charge). The burgers are about a quarter pound on a nice fresh bun. They seem a bit smaller than what you get at some of the other local places. However, in our opinion they were just the right size. As a matter of fact, the Mushroom Swiss was bigger than the other two. It had an abundance of good, fresh mushrooms and was much juicier. On one order we upgraded to the sweet potato fries, which were very good. The side of fries is a reasonable portion too, not like the huge heaping plate full you get at some places. It's unusual but refreshing to see reasonable size portions. Beer and drinks are also very reasonably priced and they have many specials and happy hours going on as well.

Regular Burger was $4.50, Jalapeno Burger and Mushroom Swiss were $4.99 at the 1/2 off price. There was a 50 cent up charge from regular fries to Sweet Potato.

A pint of Newcastle Brown even came in at just $3.50, a good price. A bottle of Stella is $3.75, while a bottle of Michelob Ultra was $3.25. There are other great beer prices during their happy hours and specials as well.

For a good burger with couple of beers on Burger Wednesday you can get in and out for under $20 for two people. Even cheaper if you don't have an alcoholic beverage. That's a great deal.

Daniel's restaurant also serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner everyday.
Tuesday is Taco Tuesday
Wednesday is 2 for 1 Burgers all day, not just limited hours.
On Friday's there is an all you can eat fish fry from 3-10 pm.
Prime Rib is served Thursday through Sunday after 4pm.

Breakfast specials (by the sign we saw) looked good too.

We don't know if this is the best burger in the area but for value and taste it ranks right near the top. Especially on Burger Wednesday!

We went on the recommendation of the water taxi driver (who my husband happened to know) & he was right, the food was grub! I mixed it up with a shredded beef, fish & shrimp taco. I enjoyed them all! My husband also enjoyed his chicken, ground beef & shredded beef tacos.

The waitress was very nice & even talked us out of ordering extra beans & rice, since the 1 serving was enough for sharing. Most places will let you buy stuff, even if they know you won't eat it!

Although the Regency Casino is a bit old & run down, the restaurant was clean & didn't look like it belonged in that particular location! We sat by a TV, to catch up with PTI & Around the Horn, but there were River view windows available if we chose.

The food was filling & the 2 of us ate for under $15, can't beat THAT! On the next visit to Laughlin, Taco Tuesday (& apparently Burger Wednesday) will be on the game plan!

My husband and i LOVE Daniels...
This place is great! The staff is wonderful... The food is amazing... BEST BURGERS IN TOWN!!! Best Chicken Quesadillas, too :)
This trip we finally made it to Daniels for breakfast... Best breakfast we had all week.
The prices are great...
A few of the tables have a beautiful view of the Colarado River.
It is a little place, many people on our charter trip didn't know it was there... They do now :)
If you are going to Laughlin, check out Daniels

Restaurant in a dinky casino in Laughlin has some nice food. Prime rib is served on the weekends and is quite tasty for the price and the bake potato was huge. It was so tasty and reasonable we went back the next night. My friend liked her salmon and the taco salad was fresh, very ample in size and tasty. Will definitely return to this hidden smaller restaurant went back in Laughlin. Don't expect a fancy restaurant our you will be disappointed. Just good food at a good value. They have some free entertainment on friday, that week it was a drag show.
