This is a good buffet, however when we were there during the fiery foods show it was very busy on Friday and Saturday nights. It is reasonably priced with a wide selection of buffet type foods. Nothing real special but after a long day it...More

Saturday's seafood buffet was a mistake! Prime rib was tough and sinewy; fried chicken was salty; and crab legs and shrimp were bland. This restaurant has gone downhill over the past year!

Huge selection of steam table food at a bargain price. Great for volume eaters. Bien Shur is where you go for a great meal but at a commensurate price point).

Better than average casino buffet (and we have frequented several in New Mexico, Nevada, and Colorado), good selection, food was fresh, price was good. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. A great place to eat if you want in and out quickly.

Pretty typical casino buffet (in a good way) where they had many different stations including a salad bar, seafood, Asian, New Mexican, Italian, American and a great dessert selection. They also had great soups. Definitely worth the money.
