If you enjoy going to more upscale casinos, this will not be for you. Upon arriving, both my husband and I thought the machines were tight but we played along. After 2 1/2 hours, we broke even. It is a smoke free casino; however, people were going outside to smoke, then they would come back in and it still smelled... More

I guess if one is a gambling addict living in Taos, this is the place to go. This casino is small, but it is smoke free. The restaurant has a nice 99 cent strawberry shortcake. If you like green chile cheese fries with big chunks of pork floating around in the sauce, this is the place for you.

Just FYI, in addition to no smoking there is no alcohol. Also, they don't permit cellphone usage and there are no televisions to watch any type of game etc on. Only one blackjack table and it was packed the entire time. Was hard to spend even one hour here.

Went to game and have dinner. Prime rib was actually pretty good, but dining area tiny . Casino totally smoke free, and smoking in front mostly filled with employees on break. Not bad selection of slots, but so small hard to get around and get machine at times. Staff somewhat rude, no cellphones allowed, which was a bit odd. Staff... More

Smaller casino, but smoke free! Only four card tables and lots of slots. Very friendly staff and good food.

Employees spend more time socializing with eachother than helping guests. When I needed help with a slot machine I did not know who to ask. Security and machine attendants dress the same. When I talked to a security guard his clothes smelled so bad I almost gagged. The wait time for a table for dinner is rediculous. Restaurant service was... More

My favorite thing about this casino is there is no smoking allowed anywhere. It is small but I've seldom had an issue with finding a machine to play. It is also one of the only casinos in NM where I've actually seen people win a jackpot. There are bigger, glitzier ones in the larger cities with restaurants and buffets, but... More

Ok the place was rather small but there were two major reasons thit I liked this place. No smoking and I did rether well, for me, at the slots. I rented at a very nice casita north of Taos in a place called Los Altos for a week and went to this casino every day. The combination of no smoking,... More
