My personal observation, Thunder Valley Casino is great for its distance from where I live; however if I were to compare it with RED HAWK CASINO, I will take Red Hawk in spite of its very far distance from my home because of the cleanliness of the place...even the air inside the casino is fresher than in Thunder Valley. Perhaps,... More

I love going to this casino. The renovated rooms are beautiful. We enjoyed our stay and we'll be going back very soon. Slots could be a little looser.

We won't be dining there again. The food is not good at the Buffet or the Cafe. The staff at the Buffet do not have a handle on the way to deal with rowdy patrons and the food is not good. Sorry.

Thunder Valley is home to "High Steaks" and "Red Lantern". High Steaks is the best American Cuisine in this area. The "happy hour" is the best around for food and lowest prices on drinks. The service and the food is excellent. If you prefer Chinese food, then Red Lantern would be your choice. The gaming area is always very clean... More

This place is just a HUGE disappointment. Since my last review nothing has changed except he service is worse and I no longer make regular visits. Other places have such better food. I relate the buffet to Hometown buffet before they closed. Keep it up TV. Most importantly the service. I have never been yelled at before for trying to... More

This is a smoking casino. If you don't smoke it's not for you. It's a nice place to visit. The restaurants are very nice. The rooms are pricy,but worth it.
