Go check it out. Besides the casino with slots and poker, there are events to enjoy. Parking is fairly easy. When they have fireworks, they are great. Don't go inside...just watch them from your car in the parking lot.

First time here. The dogs are gorgeous and fun to watch! We made several bets...lost more than what we won - but still had much fun. The establishment is dated and dirty but the women's bathroom was surprising clean. There were many people at the track with young children. We did not go into the casino, so I am not... More

If you want to spend your time and money in a fun and productive way, this is NOT the place to go. The food in the French Quarter restaurant is barely edible. I ordered the boneless short rib with mashed potatoes. The food came out cold and the mashed potatoes had large chunks of barely cooked (nearly raw) potatoes mixed... More

If the best thing you can say about a place is Free Valet Parking, then you know it isn't going to be a worthwhile evening. This converted dog track to casino has a very low ceiling which makes the gaming floor claustrophobic. There is entertainment, but when I called recently asking about who was performing the response was "I have... More

Kinda of an interesting place as it is a Casino and a Dog Track. The casino is not that big with low ceiling and no windows if you are into that kind of space. The Dog Track is nice and the dogs appear to be cared for. But again there are many who object to the concept entirely.
