We had the breakfast buffet on Sunday morning and they had everything you could ever want for breakfast including flavored coffee! Do yourself a favor and indulge. It's the best 10 bucks ever!

Not your typical Las Vegas Buffet. Overpriced ($28 / $15.95 Kids 5-10, no Veteran or elderly discounts) Limited variety of food offered; average taste.

This hands down is my favorite meal in Albuquerque. It is a good salad bar, good service, plenty of seating. I love the Pho bar. They offer an awesome cooked to order clam and mussels station, good crab, oysters, a fabulous smoked salmon. Great meal!

Hugely disappointed! I expected this large, upscale/better/best NM casino to have excellent food at their buffet. I expected at least decent food, especially since their prices are higher than most other casino buffets. At $27.95 each for the thanksgiving buffet, give me some quality food! Prime rib at carving station was served raw??!!All the food here was no better than... More

Have been going there for three years one of the variety of food outlets available in the hotel-casino. It has a good variety of choices and is well worth the price. Good atmosphere and friendly staff. You will find something you like. The staff was friendly and service oriented.

Stopped in for dinner with family during cross country trip. Property was very nice and an excellent place to spend a few hours to break up the highway miles. Buffet was ok and buffets go. Service was not bad.
