Staff go out of their way to make everything easy for placing bets, and providing an enjoyable experience. Very relaxing way to spend a day picking favorite horses by name, or by stats for experienced fans.

The building looks tired and in sore need of some updating, and there's narrow old-fashioned turnstile entry before you get to the pretty landscaping and such flowerbeds. Inside it's all very shabby, with dated seating, old-fashioned tv's and grungy carpets. Food is actually surprisingly good.not...More
