Very friendly service, it is not overwhelming in size and you can view the horses as they parade before they enter the facility

Betting on the Horses at the Del Mar Race Track Was invited by my "broker" friend for lunch. It's always fun. I am not much of a gambler. Don't know what I'm doing toss out $20.00 and typically lose,But, hey lunch was free.

My first ever visit to a race track. Very comfortable dining seating with good food at reasonable prices. I bought $2 tip sheet and bet on trifecta box, winning two races. So much fun!

Yes, there are general admission seats along the track. You can bring your own folding chairs. It gets very hot in the sun.
