Went to visit the Coronado exhibit and found this buffet "next door". Great selection, nice people, clean, under $10.00 each for a weekday lunch. Hard to beat!

The machine takes your money and then they tell you they can't find out what happened to it your money is lost

We went to the buffet and it's smaller than expected but we went to the crab legs night and it was good. We had a good meal then we went bowling and had a blast. We will definitely go back.

There is no parkng, street signs confusing, buffets one of the worst I've ever had, police stalking customers outside the doors, low payouts. This is not a friendly pueblo place to visit. Won't go back. Did I mention the noisy ugly construction?

I had to call for this one. I'm not a regular gambler, so this is too complicated for me. You have to enter your birthday and one day each month, they have drawings (prizes like buffet, $50, other small stuff) for the people... More
