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.

Today, $/26/2016 My grand daughter and I decided to go to Sandia to eat for the 2 for one buffet. We have been there many times before and always enjoyed it. Always leave $5.00 as a tip because the food was good and the service great. This time we did not leave a dime. The attendant was not friendly, looked... More

I was pleased that the buffet was only about $14.00 as these things can be quite a bit more expensive. The food was plentiful, if not very adventurous. We ate there on the late side, so some of the food had obviously been sitting for a while, but again, it was good, not great. There was quite a few choices... More

Lots of choices with American, Chinese and Mexican food being the better part of the menu. The dessert station is right at the top of descendants with sugar. Don't miss the bread pudding with white sauce. Moderate pricing and large open dining make it a pleasurable experience.
