Free drinks aren’t the only inducements to lure gamblers in the door at Reno, Nevada casinos. “Breakfast for $1.99” trumpets one freeway billboard. “$5 steak and eggs”, boasts another casino sign.

Reno casinos practically give away food to get you in the door. But you get what you pay for

Sorry, but I’m devoting my precious stomach space to places held in high esteem by locals and online reviewers. Which leads me to Peg’s Glorified Ham n Eggs, on the south edge of downtown.

Peg's is a bright yet cozy breakfast spot

I zero in on a huevos rancheros skillet, featuring two poached eggs, crispy hash browns, whole pinto beans and a piquant slaw, all of it well executed. What’s unique is the 12-inch aluminum serving dish (like a deep pizza pan), heated under a broiler to keep everything piping hot, the way breakfast should be.

At $9.50, it’s more than a minimum blackjack bet. But with a much richer payoff.
