I know many of you stay awake all night for news on the Hacienda on US93 by Lake Mead, so here it is. The main story broke in August of this year that Dotty's, the bar/casino/grocery store, with over 100 outlets in the city bought the Hacienda. The place really hasn't gone through too much transition since the purchase, but that's soon to end. In a recent road trip I stopped by for breakfast and was told it will be closing on Dec. 23rd and reopening the 29th. The casino will get some minor remodeling, and more importantly, they are letting go all the dealers and live table games. They are replacing all live games with those big screen blackjack machines. The coffee shop/buffet and employees are also being shut down. The snack bar they have now is getting revamped a little, but the food offerings will be limited to the fast food, self-serve variety. The few employees I talked to seem to be in the dark beyond that. They assume it will be called Dotty's, but they're not sure.

The only reason to stop by was the cheap table games 'cause those slots they have are tight. Oh well, looks like Railroad Pass its the new "last stop"..........before Phoenix's Wild Horse Pass.

Too bad! We (wife, kids and me) always liked making a quick stop on our 1 day excursion to Lake Mead, we make it a habit to take 1 day for the kids at lake mead from each vacation. We always stopped at Hacienda for a quick bite at the Coffee shop or the buffet for the kids and some good blackjack for me and the wife before heading back to our Hotel. The kids used to like to go during seafood night so we would plan our trips to the lake around seafood night to make the kids happy. We would have fun at the lake during the day and stop at Haciendas on the way back to our hotel. The food was decent and the gambling was very good, the staff was friendly and out going. Oh well, I guess we won't be stopping at the Hacienda anymore.
