I was told ICE Immigrations regularly raids here. Is that true? I know there is not a lot of English habla there. Don't drink the tap water. They no longer can afford bottled water. Take a smoke mask.

The entrance to this casino is charming and so real like. Almost confusing! But inside everyone was happy and very friendly. The slot machines do payout handsomely. The restaurant on the premises is very good too. Friendly staff. Great menu! It was worth the trip!
