Tucked away up the hill toward Central City removed from the glitz and glamor of Black Hawk’s main street, the Red Dolly is the town’s oldest casino. Opened on May 18, 1992, this friendly gambling establishment resides just inside the Black Hawk city limits.
It’s a smaller old-time casino with a fine array of 130 new and classic slot machines, as well as video poker. The staff is warm and welcoming, with many of the employees at the casino for more than a decade. They have a full service bar and an on-site American fare steak restaurant, which features the renowned $6.99 prime rib.
The Red Dolly Casino is open every day from 8am to 2am (or later). There’s free parking directly beside the casino. Promotions and specials occur regularly so be sure to check their website for details.
Where everybody knowns your name.
“The best food on the mountain, period. Prime rib prepared to perfection by Chef Danielle.” The on-site restaurant features a great range of food at reasonable prices. Stop by for a delicious meal and then try your luck at a few slots.
Choose from tasty starters like mozzarella sticks, chicken wings and jumbo shrimp cocktail. Try their famous homemade soup, green chili, or spicy chili verde. They have a good selection of salads, sandwiches, burgers and Mexican fare. The claim to fame though are the entrees, which include the aforementioned prime rib dinner, sirloin steak, bacon wrapped filet, St. Louis-style BBQ ribs, roast beef, roasted chicken, and country fried steak or chicken. It’s not all turf though, they have bacon wrapped shrimp, trout and Atlantic salmon. Or go Italian with pasta dishes and top it off with a decadent dessert.
