Located in a building that dates back to 1901, this is the city’s premier destination where ‘the elite meet and Yuma eats’ since the early 1940s. As such, Lutes Casino is a historical fixture on Yuma’s dining scene. Full of retro memorabilia, pinball machines and billiard tables – and regulars playing dominoes – Lutes Casino is where the locals come to relax and socialize. On the other hand, visitors come here to soak up the native ambience. Lutes’ American and Mexican menu is legendary, with must-try dishes that include its potato tacos – potato filled corn tortillas deep-fried and served with shredded cabbage, tomato, mayo and Cotijia cheese – and the famous Lutes Especial – a cheeseburger and hot dog combo served since 1951.
