Harrah's Rincon is a tribal hotel and casino in North San Diego county that is managed by Caesars for the Rincon Band of Luiseno Indians. As with a lot of tribal casinos a drawback is its remote location but if you are in the San Deigo area or are visiting with a car its not too far away. The property is celebrating its 10th anniversary but looks brand new and is well cared for and the staff are friendly as well as helpful which you don't always find in Las Vegas properties. Harrah's free shuttle buses bring in customers from the San Diego area as well as Los Angeles and Orange county. If you are staying at the property there isn't much around but there is a gas station next door with a newly opened 7-11 and a Subway restaurant.
The casino is large for a tribal casino with 2000 of the latest machines as well as a pretty big table game area. The property is part of Caesar's Total Rewards program so you can use the Total Rewards Slot Card for earning comps and tier points in all the machines or at the tables. All the machines have a drink ordering system so you can order your drink without getting from the machine or waiting to a cocktail waitress walks by, this is a nice feature that isn't available in lots of Las Vegas properties at the moment.

The Buffet $19-$32 for a meal which is a little expensive but if you have rewards credits you can use those which help. The buffet food is very good and similar to what you would find in a Las Vegas buffet with the desert station being especially good; One note is that The Buffet opens at 11am like most of the food places so if you want an early breakfast you might want to try the coffee shop. The Cafe which is the basic twenty four hour coffee shop with reasonably priced food in a nice room; Other food offerings include Pinks the famous hot dog store as well as several night time restaurants, Fortunes (noodles), Fiore Steak & Seafood and a Poolside Restaurant with a bbq theme.
Next door to the property is the 'Open Sky Theater' a concert venue which mainly consists of a stage with bench type seating and draws pretty big touring bands and singers. The theater is a good place for seeing a concert although getting to this venue at night down a two lane road may not be ideal but if you get a room at the hotel its a quick walk to the venue.
