I stop here about twice a year while on road trips to see family. If you know what real blackjack is, then this is one of the better places in the region -- if you go early in the day to Harrah's they won't have...More

We went and we expected a smorgasbord of food, but it's a small restaurant, so there was not a variety of food. The food was great, but would have enjoyed a bigger selection.

This is the only casino we like to go to in the area. Pretty packed on saturdays of course. Wish they had more $10 minimum tables for blackjack, I could play for hours.

Stopped by the Ameristarfor a couple of hours and were glad we did. Larger than Harrah's, with a wide range of machines and table games. Friendly staff and a fun casino to game in

Overall an ok casino if nothing else is available. The craps table is generally where I like to play, but they only had one table open. They had two others not even open. Again it's okay, but not as enjoyable or spacious as the Kansas...More

Much better off staying at Harrah's. The casino here is very poor. Horseshoe is much better. Won't return.

I found one! An authentic chicken fried steak with country gravy that was amazing. No frozen, prebreaded mushy stuff covered with gravy in hopes of camouflage here. Real steak, amazing gravy and actual mashed potatoes. Comfort food served in very generous portions. I was preparing...More

You can also get rooms for $99 on Mondays. It's like everywhere else, cheaper early in the week.
