The motto at Stateline Casino has always been centered around “Good Times, Great Friends,” but on May 7, it was especially that because of the customers who showed up to celebrate the Slight’s nine-year anniversary since buying from the previous owners.

Located at 490 W. Mesquite Blvd, Stateline has been a local favorite for many years and has the only pool tables in Mesquite. Throw in an active live entertainment schedule, some karaoke and dart tournaments and it’s plain to see why so many locals are loyal.

“It’s all about having fun,” said co-owner Kurt Slight. “That’s our priority – to make sure it’s always a fun time.” Slight also noted that there have been some great changes in the past year, including an improved ventilation system that filters out the cigarette smoke better. Other improvements are planned for the next six to seven months, including some new paint to the inside and outside, as well as finding a stable client to reopen the restaurant portion of the facility.

Current performers at Stateline during their live entertainment events include local band Bottoms Up as well as Joe Sherman and occasionally DJ#Juan. For their anniversary, Slight invited Identity Crisis, a band from St. George to play. Identity Crisis is also the 2016 Champion of Sonny Boys BBQfest Battle of the Bands from March.

  1. Always a nice place to visit. Maybe they can open up a sub shop for the patrons. Nicest place to relax. Congrats to the owners.

    • That’s wonderful. I’d love to see a full time restaurant open like it was way back in the late 80’s and 90’s.. It was homemade food, breakfast, lunch and dinner.. All American great food. 🙂 Congrats on your 9 years..
