Just outdated and worn. Are at the buffet, but was totally discussed based on every plate I could find had something on it. Very limited food. I am sure the broken down and outdated furniture didn't help.

When you walk in at first it's perfect. The price is good. And the staff is great. But then you look a little deeper and it's rough around the edges. Only you don't mind because it is after all the sands.

Went there to play bingo. Not very crowded maybe 25 people. They are not very friendly. We paid $48 for 18 cards.
