If you live near a Wildfire Casino—and odds are you do—then you have a new dining option. The recently unveiled Wildburger, which has replaced the Denny’s-esque Dante’s at all three locations, offers more variety than your standard casino fare with its handcrafted burger menu.
The restaurant feels a little like a Choose Your Own Adventure. Start with a beef, turkey, chicken or veggie burger ($6-$7). Pick your bun and trimmings. And that’s not all! Toppings ($1 apiece) include cheeses like Gruyère and Maytag blue, plus bacon, chili and fried eggs. There’s more! You also get a side (the onion strings are addictive) and signature sauces (don’t miss garlic ketchup). That’s actually it.

Furthering Wildburger’s goal that you “Eat Meat,” the menu offers other methods to increase your carnivorous quotient. A breakfast option, the Wildburger Signature Breakfast Bowl, layers home fries, hamburger, cheddar, ham and eggs in an iron pot ($8). You can supplement your foot-long grilled hot dog with a wrapping of bacon ($6), or even get meat in your salad—the cheeseburger salad ($8), of course.
Wildburger’s not just about the meat. An eclectic 26-beer selection ranges from lowbrow (Hamm’s—from the land of sky blue waters!) to local Tenaya Creek microbrews. For dessert, you can have made-from-scratch Ding Dongs or deep-fried Twinkies ($5 each)—exactly the sort of ending a wild adventure deserves.
