“Better than the others.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

There are several casinos in the area and I've been to all of them. The food at the buffet is far better than the other casinos, it has good flavor, good selection and if you're a senior & a card member it's $5. Lots of parking and the video poker machines have a better pay out than several other casinos in town. FYI,second hand smoke is a problem in all the casinos. I've only been there during the week days and have always had a good time, no idea about weekends & evenings. It's my casino of choice in the Albuquerque area.

“Had a blast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012 via mobile

Stayed overnight with a friend that came to visit from Vermont. Room was nice and very clean. We ate at the buffet which was wonderful. Played some games then had drinks at thunder road enjoying a local band on their very cool stage that is suspended over the bar! Fun!!

“Louis Black”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

I cannot tolerate the smoking. The entertainment arena/auditorium should be removed from the casino into a non-smoking area. Ruins the evening to be subjected to smoke.

“Has potential but lacking”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

This casino has the potential to be nice but the service and people who visit make it unpleasant. There are much nicer casinos in NM. Love the Route 66 theme and the carpet that looks like a road. However, the ventilation is bad (smoke is very strong), service desk had problems answering questions, and has the overall feeling of a dirty truck stop. We heard some people arguing inside the casino & others arguing outside. If you decide to stop by, do so during the day because it seems to get a little nasty at night.
