Buffett has improved, deserts are one of the best at any Albuquerque Casinos. Deli food it better than most offered at any casino in the area, The DOWNS has the worst food of any Casino in Albuquerque.

Been to Sandia multiple times over the years and it still feels like a new property. Great food options, free drinks (soda, coffee) and the latest machines.

Food was good, service was great. Selection of drinks was limited. I understand the price has gone up over the last year.

I don't know think so. You can't drink alcohol at the slots so I would assume it's the same at the tables.
