“Too crowded”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

Small place too crowded. Not enough machines and not friendly staff. Ok for every now and then but not for frequent visits

“Concert Venue-Michael Jackson Tribute Band”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

We attended the Michael Jackson Tribute band concert at Sunland Park Race Track and Casino, on September 14th, 2012. The event hall (downstairs ballroom) was full, and the seating layout was terrible. We would NEVER attend or recommend that you waste your money for a concert event in their downstairs ballroom. The ballroom was set up with chair seating, and first of all there are several pillars in the ballroom that block the view of the audience from the staging area. There is a large dance floor area, and on this event the dance floor was open. Once the program started, many guests stormed the dance floor to get closer to the band, thus BLOCKING the view from the guests seated in chairs. It was aweful and a total waste of time and money to see this event. The marketing director could not control the audience. Several annoucements were made for the audience who stormed the dance floor to sit down as there were so many compliants to the marketing director. The marketing director Terri Wyatt could not control the crowd, and her security just stood around doing nothing. There were many complaints by the guests. The ballroom is NOT set up for these types of venues, and if in the future the same seating arrangements are done, I would NOT attend any concerts at Sunland Park Race Track & Casino,that are held specifically in the ballroom. We voiced our personal complaints directly to Terri Wyatt but she only made promises and did nothing to back up her intent to take care of the complaints. You would think that Sunland Park Race Track and Casino management would want to please the guests as venues like this would bring in additional revenue from dining,food and beverage sales, and potential gaming. This was a real mess.

“Golden Corral is significantly better.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012 via mobile

We ate at Ventana's Buffet based on the recommendation of my wife's father. What a horrible recommendation! The selection of entree food is very poor, the quality and taste of most of the entree food is poor (I am willing to bet that some of the food had been sitting around for hours), and the quality and taste of the desserts are average (at least there is a better selection than the entree food). The Golden Corral that is 10 minutes away is a significantly better choice.
