Rio Food Court
Every year, around March Madness time, we ask sports handicapper and sports gambling author Nolan Dalla to curate a list of his favorite places to eat when he has action on a game (or multiple games) and doesn’t want to stray too far from the betting window. Being a creative guy, Nolan turned that into an article on the “best,” the “mixed” and the “worst” dining options available in or adjacent to a Las Vegas sports book (which you can read at nolandalla.com) and gave us permission to excerpt his picks for best.
This food court has been on his list we started in 2022 – and Dalla knows it well, having spent plenty of time in this building during World Series of Poker events.
Dalla writes that “the Rio has seen better days, but the sportsbook is still cozy and well-run. Steps away is a very good Chinese restaurant, freshly cooked pizza, and sandwiches (all counter service and takeout) -- which can easily be brought into the sports viewing area.”
