I tried their carmel corn and it is all right, but expensive. They have old stuff in the Carson City factory outlet to look at.
Favorite Dish: Besides the candy that looks, good I tried their chocolate that they give out as samples and it is really good.
For the best breakfast in Nevada, try the Cracker Box. It's an old-fashioned diner with friendly, down-to-earth waitresses. I believe they are open from 6:30 to 3, serving breakfast and lunch, and their prices run about $4 to $9.
Favorite Dish: All their breakfast dishes are great, but I especially like their homemade corned beef hash. The orange juice is fresh-squeezed, they cook your eggs exactly the way you order them, and their home fries with pepper and onion puts every other restaurants' to shame!
For the best Mexican food around, go to El Charro Avitia. Good atmosphere for all, including families. It's worth a drive from Tahoe or Reno!
Favorite Dish: I doubt you'd be disappointed by anything on their menu -- I've enjoyed every dish I've had so far.
Great food and great service ....
Waitstaff friendly and the place
was very clean.
"Best Of Reno" - 2nd Place:

Favorite Dish: Reds Old 395 Grill is one of Carson City's
Types of food served:
Burgers - Pizza - BBQ - Steak - American
Pho is a type of Rice Noodle Soup. This is basically a fast food restaurant with a décor of fast food chain crossed with Asia. The food seemed fresher though. This is a good choice if you want something different and are in a hurry.
Favorite Dish: I enjoyed the Pho.
Carson City's dining possibilities have never come close to overwhelming me in the 20 some years I have lived in the area. So I was pleasantly surprised when we stumbled upon Khristopher's Cafe a couple years ago. We have eaten here about a dozen times. The food has always been excellent and the service great. We have only dined here for lunch and it is a bit pricey for lunch. Can't say how the dinner menu prices compare. Atmosphere is casual, quiet, cozy with a slight upscale feel.
Favorite Dish: Spicy Italian Sausage sandwich
They have old equipment outside to offer a historical persective. They actually have old coolers inside used to keep the soda pops cold.
