I took my girlfriend to Pechanga Resort / Casino in Temecula for her birthday. One word. WOW! USA Today readers voted it the #1 resort casino in the country. Yes that includes casinos in LV. I can see why. Casino was just as nice or nicer than most casinos in LV. My girlfriend likes the slots so I kept her company and the payback was very good. We played for a few hours and we had enough comp points to pay for both our buffets. Buffet was very good. We ate a light lunch at the 24 hour cafe and it also was very good. There is a good variety of card games but of course being California there are not any dice games but they do have Card Craps. Didn't stay at the hotel but the rooms get good reviews. Highly recommend.
