I went here to order a yummy take away breakfast burrito at the famous Sadies but I want also to look around the casino and quickly play the gambling machines. I don't gamble but I just want to live out the fantasy of gambling in a casino. Because these machines are modern and electronic I didn't have a clue what... More

It appears to the observer that you must be a smoker to visit this casino. They have a very small non-smoking section that is not closed off from the rest of the casino, so the smoke smell, second hand and third hand smoke is well permeated throughout. The main casino is filled with lots of locals, all with a cigarette... More

I've been there with 5 family members, we had their seafood buffet on Friday night, that was great, my family like it very much except a little bit expensive. I highly recommend!

It was fairly quiet but we had a great BLT sandwich at the grill. He played blackjack, and we also played about $40 worth of video poker. Those machines are crazy and waaaay tight. It looks like a local place, which is good. Quick 90 minute visit.

The restrauant was not worth it. Waitress did not bring back our 50 dollar change. Reported her to a manager and she argued with us. What happened to customer service.

Not a huge gambler but decided to stop in Bernalillo for a night on our way to CO instead of driving all the way like we usually do. Lots of fun! It was pretty smokey, but they do have a non-smoking section. Convenient to get to and free parking...close to lots of motels. I think we are likely to stop... More

Has covered parking, which is great. The casino is quite nice. Small but they have a great no smoking section. There are restaurants and snack bars. It is a great lay out. We aren't big gamblers but it is a nice place that isn't filled with lots of people and easy to get to.

This little gem was awesome!! We went in here a little concerned on how well it was going to be and it turned out to be awesome!! It was way less packed then Sandia and it was so nice to walk up to any table you wanted. The staff was so funny and witty it made playing on the tables... More

Santa Ana Star is a nice, non resort casino with a large gaming floor, a buffet, night club, bowling alley and fine restaurant. The gaming floor is large with both standard slots and poker machines as well as live dealer games. There is a non-smoking room for those who do not want to sit next to someone chain smoking. The...

Always a favorite when in Albuquerque, I recommend you visit this Sadie's location if you can't make it down to 4th street. The stuffed sopapillia is one of my favorite dishes from anywhere in the world. The casino location wasn't too crowded for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The service was great, and the food was wonderful. Highly recommended.
