We've tried to give this buffet many chances of late. At first the buffet was Amazing! Good food and good service but our last 3 visits and one with a large group from out of town have been horrible. Low food count, bad food quality and we waited over 1 hour and a half when the crowed wasn't even that... More

This casino is a little older but staff was helpful. The games were fun. We got free tickets to the cowboy symposium just for playing.

I couldn't stand the cigarette smoke and my husband has lost every time these past two years so we will not be returning. It's just not fun any more!! Watching the horses and making a small wager is fun. But throwing money away while your lugs are being fried...no thanks!

My boyfriend and I gambled a bit and won some money. We were having a good time playing the slot machines and drinking soda. When we went to cash out the cashier was friendly and nice. However, the staff on the floor were rude, especially this one floor employee! I found a prize from one of the toy machines and... More

This small casino is adjacent to the Ruidoso Downs horse race track. While the personnel are very friendly, the casino is one of the smokiest casinos anywhere in the U.S. It has a small number of slot machines of all denominations and a small bar and off track betting area.

This casino is rather small but the machines were very good to us. It could use some updating, chairs worn and torn and since it was small it was hard to walk around between machines. That being said we would still go again.

Hidden away at Ruidoso Downs this place was pretty cool. Much better than our experience at the Inn of The Mountain Gods. Old machines, newer machines, and not crowded at all. We went to the Inn once ...just once. We went here 3 times within a 24 hour period and did pretty good. Sign up for the players club and... More
