“Gr8 Prime Rib Dinner for $9.95”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014

We saw the signs along the road and stopped after going to Alcadones, Mexico (which is a few miles away) to check-out medical providers.

We arrived at 5 pm and signed-up for the "winners" card, which got me a 10% discount on the food and a $50 free-play since it was my birthday month.

The casino was quite smokey but the restaurant wasn't crowded, and we got our food & drinks in a very short time. The thick slice of meat was cooked MR, just as we ordered it, with a huge baked potato with all the trimmings, a large serving of steamed broccoli (my favorite) and a roll & butter.

Service was efficient and it was a gr8 meal for the price.

The casino had tons of penny slots, and a variety of other price ranges. They give you a credit of 50% of your losses on machines, up to $100 on your first night of gambling. Interesting option if you know enough to keep your card in the machine while you're playing (which I did not). Oh well, it was a worthwhile stop for dinner.

“Skip it!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

The Service is awful - the staff could not care less - and the food is a little below average. We had a heck of a time even paying the bill!

“Good food, good prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

We have ate here many times over the years. The food is always good and they always have specials. The huevos rancheros is different than most. Two tortillas are made into cups and the chorizo, egg, cheese and rancheros sauces are put inside. The portions are large and most of the time I need a doggy bag.

“Ate here many times!”

Ate here every day over a 6 day stay. Never had a bad meal and the service was great every time. Good prices and the bread pudding is a must!
