It smells awful. They should invest in smoke extractors rather than cover it with fragrances. It makes the smell worse. The machines are old and they rip you off. They just take your money. The food used to be good consistently but I guess some staff changes were made, now you don't know if you're going to like your order... More

WARNING! Printers on some machines not working right, got ripped off for $50 two weeks ago, just got back tonight and was ripped off for another $41.00 tonight. I'm a regular (well I was)... and to top it all off some of their staff is really rude. Carlos Cordero, you need to learn how to treat your customers with respect...... More

We walked through the casino but was not impressed. Very crowded with what appeared to be primarily older slot machines. No video poker games or electronic blackjack or roulette. We left without even playing. Huge difference from playing at Sunland Park Casino which is right next to El Paso.

This place will suck all the money out of your pocket that you have. Recently I have seen no one win anything. They must be wanting to build something somewhere. Avoid losing - no one wins here.

You can see the left over glory from the days it was a real casino! Its nice to relax and eat while you play! My husband and I went in with 300$ and walked out with over a 1000$ dollars. That won't happen to everyone but if you plan on losing, which you should ALWAYS do then you don't leave... More

Are you kidding? This has an amazing reputation all over Texas. So out of curiosity I went to see it. Has an atmosphere of a gambling hall and a cafe type of a restaurant.

We stopped in at the Speaking Rock after we enjoyed our personal tour at the Ysleta Cultural Center. The food was good (yummy barbacoa burritos) and the people were nice. The slot machines however were a different story. About 50% of them were down for maintenance, and the place was packed.....I think it was just bad timing on our part.... More

This is not a casino, the slot machines are really old, none of them with the new stuff you find in Vegas. I like the entreteiment they have free concerts good people, nice service,but the place looks cheap, like it hasn't been renovaded in 20 years. Old and dusty and dark. I won't go back.
