Route 66 Casino is the best in the area. It's a little farther away then the rest but you get double comps, a smaller crowd, senior club is great, $5 senior buffet on Thur/Fri and the entire staff is outstanding.

since they are several miles outside of town, this casino tries harder. They have the best casino buffet & it is especially nice if you hit a 2 for 1 or senior night

Nicely decorated, plenty slot machines, craps table, black jack, bingo, other gambling areas. There is a night club inside, a pub, another bar, a buffet and a restaurant. The gift shop has really great stuff that is reasonably priced.

My husband wanted to stop in and gamble some, so we did. It was clean and comfortable, but I cannot tolerate smoke very well due to asthma so we did not stay long. I won some money and my husband lost some money, so we pretty much broke even.

Route 66 is my favorite aunt's favorite casino in New Mexico. She makes out like a bandit on every visit. I, on the other hand, might as well take a lighter and burn my money... still, we have a great time. Rooms are spacious and reasonably priced for the quality. But, when we're there, it's really not about the room... More

I didnt like this place. Stinks like smoke the pool is small so are the rooms. Staff is not too friendly. And the slots are sooooo tight can win anything. Try Sandia.
