If you love to eat, you have to make a trip to the Pala Casino and Resort Saturday/Sunday Brunch Buffet. The selection is great, and all the crab legs, oysters, shrimp, birria de res and homemade menudo. I had a great feast for a king!

a large casino with lots of slots and table games. It has 6 or 7 restaurants. Luis Rey's has a great happy hour with cheap beer, margaritas and street tacos. Live music in the center bar daily. Slots were fairly loose for me.
