I love spending a sunny day at Turf Paradise. The meals are delicious, old-fashioned comfort food and very reasonably priced. The service is great. Horse racing is excitable and enjoyable; you can spend as little ($2 a race) or as much as you want.

This track is a delightful find in northwest Phoenix. Lots of parking, and great energy. On Sundays, you will find a great "family" vibe, with activities and local culture to add to the excitement of the ponies.

This was our first time coming to this race course. While we enjoyed our day the Club House seems a little run down. WE did not eat here but saw the food being served. It looked good and the portions were large.

Really love to watch the horses run but Turf Paradise needs to update their decor. Feel like I'm in the 70s in this place.

I would not take children under 13 to the track that day. Will be very crowded because it is both Kentucky Derby Day as well as Cinqo de Mayo. Could get a bit rowdy.
