Grandaughters wedding.

A nice side trip while just exploring the area. Forest was a little dry due to our 4 year drought California.

Casino was nice looking, clean, the buffet terrific, floor service not very good (did not see many servers at all) The slots were very tight the night we were there. Don't know if it is like that every night but it was on the Saturday night we were there. I tried many different types of slots and had no luck... More

Nice and quiet on a Sunday evening. The buffet closes early though and there are no signs posted with the hours so be aware, there is only the Cafe open after 9:00pm to eat anything. Slots are nothing any other casino has, and they have a limited number of tables to play.

Nice casino. Something fun to do on the weekend. Make sure to check out the outlet mall. Food there is ok, but found the best in the mall at the Italian place...great subs and salads.

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.
