Review & Photos of Sands Regency, Reno, NV

The Sands Regency is located in downtown Reno. It is next to the railroad tracks, across the street from the old Sundowner Casino, and three blocks from the Virginia Street casinos. The Greyhound bus station is inside the Sands.

The property has undergone some renovations. It is sort of a generic casino (themeless), but is notable for the following: large cheap rooms, large outdoor swimming pool, 10x odds craps, $2 single deck blackjack, Mel's Diner, and a few national restaurant chain outlets (Arby's, Pizza Hut, and Tony Roma's).

Sands Regency Dining Guide -

The dining choices are not as extensive as some of the other Reno casinos, and they tend more towards inexpensive fast food and snacks.

  • Fuzio Universal Pasta is open for lunch and dinner daily. The menu includes Italian pasta favorites as well as some Asian specialties such as Pad Thai and Shanghai Curry.
  • Mel's Diner is open 24-hours and serves typical 50s-style diner food like burgers, fries, milkshakes, some homestyle entrees, and breakfast at all hours.
  • Try Arby's or the Cabana Café for a quick snack or inexpensive meal. The Cafe serves coffee, bakery items, hot dogs, pizza, chicken, and deli sandwiches. Most eveything is under $5.
  • The Buffet at the Sands features cooked to order NY steak 7 nights a week ($11.99).
