We go to the buffet restaurant at Viejas probably once a month. The food is generally great and their selection is pretty good. They have the chocolate buffet on the weekend which I think is too much chocolate since it takes away options of regular food and it is more expensive. The casino staff is generally friendly, more so than... More

Easy to get to from San Diego via the train and complimentary bus ride from El Cajon. Casino seems awfully big, but then they have sections of casino with no-smoking areas. Craps tables play a bit differently from Illinois casinos--a bit disturbing if you're playing odds of the roll on the dice. Food and drinks easily available, but be careful... More

I loved the outlet mall, the surrounding shops the beauty of it all. The Casino wasn't all that great, but I'm not a gambler, so was kind of lost.

Nice casino but no table games in non smoking area and didn't seem like slots paid very well, seemed rigged. Hotels rooms way too expensive, stay elsewhere if going.

The Casino & Resort Hotel is very nice. People were very friendly and helpful in answering the questions that I had about the Resort and surrounding area. It is right across the street from the Outlet Mall and is part of the complex. They are building on to the hotel so will be nicer.

We ate at a new restaurant called Far East Express. Great prices, great tastes and the service was impeccable. Clean friendly atmosphere was worth the small price tag. We would recommend to any visitors to the casino give this little place a try.
