If you love to eat, you have to make a trip to the Pala Casino and Resort Saturday/Sunday Brunch Buffet. The selection is great, and all the crab legs, oysters, shrimp, birria de res and homemade menudo. I had a great feast for a king!

a large casino with lots of slots and table games. It has 6 or 7 restaurants. Luis Rey's has a great happy hour with cheap beer, margaritas and street tacos. Live music in the center bar daily. Slots were fairly loose for me.

As with most casinos, it is there for one purpose - to make money. That said, it is a very nice facility and we really enjoyed the (overpriced) buffet.

Hi Louise....I'm sorry I don't know the answer to that. We arrived at Pala by private car. However, I thought the suggestion to contact Pala directly was a good one. They would know.
