Sadie's is leaving the Santa Ana Casino soon. This particular Sadie's restaurant was not very good. Food was heavy and wet. Yes, "wet". Original Sadies Albuquerque is an excellent restaurant and is still in business.

We lived in Bernalillo 20+ years ago and recently visited. Sadie's was one of our favorite restaraunts and we were delighted that one was closer at the Star casino. Delight turned to disappointment when we found the restaraunt open to the casino (smoking section, of course) so it was noisy and smelly. Gratefully, the food was excellent and the happy... More

It's located inside a casino. If you can find it through the haze of cigarette smoke, and you still have an appetite, you'll often find no hostess to greet you. After finally getting seated, or giving up and seating yourself in the lounge, you should get friendly service from your wait staff, but don't expect it every time. You'll then... More

We are local and wanted to go out to the casino so we decided to have dinner at Sadie's. We were told that there would be a 15 minute wait for a table, which isn't bad, so we decided to wait. Unfortunately, while we were waiting, a party of 6 people showed up and were seated right away. Did they... More

Had lunch, ordered enchiladas red chili,rice etc. The hamburger was crispy, the chile was slop on the entire plate, and was greasy ( standing on plate). Rice was mushy. My companion meal was not better , chicken enchiladas dry, flavorless green chile, sauce overflowing the dish. Food better at Sadies on fourth.

I had the taco and hubby had a burger. The burger was pretty good...fries...good. Taco...was not bad. Had beans smothered in cheese and potatoe cubes as a side dish. Thought that was rather odd, but it was tasty.

This place has ok New Mexican food but a very good Green Chile cheeseburger. One year, I think it even took 1st place at the State Fair.

the quantity was large, the server was exceptional, and the fare was just o.k. I often wonder, after eating at places like this, if they actually eat their own food - would they serve this in their own home?

This was a horrible experience for us. The was not good. It was pretty bad. What you end up getting no matter what you order is a big place of diced potatoes and beans covered in some sauce.

The wait is 30 minutes if you walk in, funny thing is they have 40+open tables but just won't seat you. If you have an alcoholic drink, the Santa Ana police are outside waiting to arrest you. Alcohol is not allowed on the reservation, so you might end up in jail. The parking lot is a mess with a lot... More
