Pretty typical casino buffet (in a good way) where they had many different stations including a salad bar, seafood, Asian, New Mexican, Italian, American and a great dessert selection. They also had great soups. Definitely worth the money.

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!...More
