A lot of choices, but the oysters weren't cooked. Luckily I spat the second one out after biting it in half. We were both sick all night. The staff doesn't clear dirty plates. They just pile up on your table. It's gross seeing dirty plates all around you and on every table there. There's no salad!

I travel constantly. Rarely do you hit a buffet where every choice of meat is prepared superbly. This is one of the best casino buffets anywhere and believe me, I hit 35 states a year. Well worth the $ 17.95 price.

I thought that for the price it was going to be an overpriced buffet with limited options. I was very wrong. The offerings were very well thought out for variety, convenience and enjoyment. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly and the food was great. The only "beef" (pardon the pun) is that they are not open for breakfast.

We've always enjoyed the buffet at Cactus Pete's but they renovated about a year or so ago and it seems the atmosphere has totally changed. No more semi circular booths, no more keno runners, it seems more like a glorified cafeteria. The cost is now close to $20.00 per person weekdays. Granted, there are a lot of offerings, but I...

The remodel looks great. The food was awful. Many things were dried out, they had been sitting out to long. The chicken was rubbery. The only thing that was good was the Gelato. Service was just ok. We will go some where else next time. And skip the buffet.
