“New mex and more...”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

This is a combination of a bar and dining restaurant. Prime rib meal was satisfying. Small side of mashed potatoes could have been bigger. Service was ok.

“Great food”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Great food, but it is a casino restaurant so the smoke was a small problem. The food was quite impressive, and the large screens were nice. It doesn't get excellent because of the casino

“Good sports bar”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

It was average.. But we were in the casino and it was right there. We were able to watch the NBA finals while we had a sandwich.

“A Tale of Two Dinners”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

First night: Great Food (Torte Sandwich and Green Chile Stew) and great service (Gustavo) - could not have been happier. Second night: Mediocre food (Nachos were pretty bad, using cheese sauce instead of real cheese), strip steak "meh"/Tortilla Burger" very good. Service (One Who Shall Not Be Named), non-existent. Had to ask someone else to find him on two occasions as he was MIA. This was the Jekyll and Hyde of the restaurant world - we went back a second time because our first experience was so good. If you give it a go, good luck!

“All around poor experience”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

After Marchfest at Buffalo Thunder hotel a medium sized group of us came here to eat. We had to wait 35 minutes for a table even though we saw several open tables while we were waiting in the bar area. We got seated near a stage and waited several minutes for the waiter to arrive. The waiter was pleasant but seemed like he was not good at his job. We ordered 3 plates of Indian Tacos and 2 sandwiches. We ordered a "mountain of nachos" to start with. The nachos were very lack luster and was not mountainous. The cheese was like cheap Velveeta, the beans were cold and tasted like canned beans. The nachos were just a total disappointment. Each of the Indian tacos was ordered differently. After almost another half hour of waiting the waiter came with food. One taco had double the amount of red chile on it. One taco came with green instead of green and red and the other taco was not supposed to have cheese on it. All three of the tacos came on a cold plate and the food was served to us cold. One of the sandwiches was supposed to come with sweet potato fries and came with regular fries. The last sandwich was brought out correctly... but did not come out from the kitchen until everybody else was halfway done with their food. Verdict: Skip this place and go somewhere else.
