Founded in the 1890s, this East Bay institution (located on San Pablo, a few blocks from MacArthur BART) hosts casino games 24/7, including seven-card stud, double-hand poker, California Black Jack, Texas Hold 'Em (with tournaments twice a week), lowball, and pan. In addition to its forty gaming tables, the venue provides a full bar and bistro menu with Chinese food, Hof-Brau sandwiches, burgers, and prime rib.
The local mini-chain serves up Italian fare at fair prices, making it a convenient spot to enjoy a filling meal.
A Mexican restaurant with a California twist. Think avocado corn fish tacos, roasted veggie salads, and "healthmex" grilled burritos.
Tucked away behind the Bank Club is a horseshoe counter with stool seating. Sit down and either Wally or one of his friendly employees will greet you with a bowl of hot, spicy lentil soup. No, you didn't order it, nor did you order the baklava that will arrive with your bill. Tuck in, you're in good hands with this crew. Wally bills the fare as "Mediterranean & More," and that's an understatement.
