We wanted to go to a casino and this was the closest. It's very small, there's no tables and I couldn't find video roulette which is my favorite. But we played some video poker for a bit and it was fun. New Mexico casinos do not allow alcohol on the floor of the casino, but there was a lady walking... More

They called my name on a random "hot seat". I had to throw darts to win. Got so many try's & finally won $100.00 free play! Just wish casino was a little larger.

This place is cute and campy. It's a retro casino, not everyone likes that, but I do. They do have some more modern machines though. All in all I thought it was cute. Like I said, it's all in matter of taste. Some like retro, some prefer modern and that's all good.

The horse racing was what one would expect. The casino slots were too tight. I didn't see anyone winning. The restaurant food was decent the service was terrible. We actually had to wait to get our check while the server played on her phone.

I've visited this Casino several times over the years and always come away disappointed. Most of the Slots are old and the place is smoky.

Was craving Prime Rib and this fit the bill. The service was fast and friendly. The Prime Rib was a huge cut of meat and cooked perfectly and a great price, Alcoholic drinks were a bit pricey.
