Circus Circus to Add New Additions to Food Court

by Mike Van Houten / Feb 27, 2017

As $50 million in renovations continue at the Eldorado Resorts Reno properties, Circus Circus Reno announced that The Habit Burger Grill, Panda Express and Piezzetta Pizza Kitchen will open in the hotel casino’s all-new food court. Two of the three fast-casual restaurants will be making their debut in northern Nevada and are expected to open by Memorial Day Weekend. The three establishments further enhance the hotel casino’s dining options, joining El Jefe’s Cantina, Kanpai Sushi and Sips Coffee and Tea as new additions to Circus Circus Reno.

The new food court is adjacent to the recently renovated Circus Midway, and will offer guests of the Eldorado Resorts complex brand-name quick eateries new to Downtown Reno and over 180 seats in an open common area.

The Habit Burger Grill is best known for their ‘charburgers’ – 100% fresh ground beef chargrilled over an open flame.

Charburger variations include a teriyaki charburger with grilled pineapple, teriyaki sauce, crisp lettuce, fresh tomato, caramelized onions, pickle and mayo on a toasted bun or the vegetarian-friendly roasted garlic portabella char with portabella mushrooms, melted white American cheese, crisp lettuce, fresh tomato, caramelized onions, pickle and roasted garlic aioli on a toasted bun. Made-to-order sandwiches are also available including a tri-tip steak sandwich, albacore tuna filet and the chain’s new golden chicken sandwich, a fresh, filleted chicken breast, hand-breaded with house-made seasoned flour and buttermilk, cooked to a juicy golden brown and topped with creamy, spiced red pepper sauce, lettuce, tomatoes and pickles.

The Cherng Family opened the first Panda Express in 1983 in Glendale, Calif. and today the extended restaurant family stretches from coast to coast and around the world, with over 1,650 restaurants nationwide. One-of-a-kind entrees such as zesty Beijing Beef and Honey Walnut Shrimp. Guests also enjoy a large menu of other traditional Chinese dishes like spicy Kung Pao Chicken and savory Broccoli Beef.

Piezzetta is the creation of Italian father-son restaurateurs, Harry and Chris Ilardo, and Italian trained Chef James Schroeder. It’s inspired by the way pizza was originally crafted. Here, homemade crusts are assembled and rolled in the kitchen. Ingredients like ground lamb, goat cheese and truffle oil are sourced to build the most flavorful, eclectic (or traditional, if that’s what you’re looking for) combinations. Customers order and watch their meals get meticulously pieced together – baked and served hot in three minutes or less without compromising taste. For more information, visit

    Do you know what happened to Canter's Deli opening on the main floor at Silver Legacy? Last we heard it was going to be January - then nothing.
