Fiesta Rancho is a hotel and casino located on 25.46 acres (10.30 ha) of land at 2400 North Rancho Drive in North Las Vegas, Nevada, across the street from Texas Station hotel-casino. The Maloof family purchased the land in 1989, and announced the Fiesta in 1990, with construction initially scheduled to begin the following year. However, the start of construction was delayed because of difficulty obtaining financing. Construction ultimately began in April 1994, and the Fiesta opened on December 14, 1994, with 100 rooms and a 25,000 sq ft (2,300 m2) casino. The resort was popular among local residents, prompting a 50,000 sq ft (4,600 m2) expansion that began in 1995. The expansion included a drive-through sportsbook, a remodeled buffet, and a larger casino. A $26 million, 50,000 sq ft (4,600 m2) expansion took place in 1999, adding a food court, a parking garage, and additional casino space. At the time, a majority of the Fiesta's slot machines played video poker, and the casino had been proclaimed as "the Royal Flush Capital of the World," having paid out over 118,500 royal flushes won through its video poker machines. Station Casinos purchased the Fiesta in 2001 and renamed it as Fiesta Rancho to differentiate it from its new sister property, Fiesta Henderson.
