Ok place to go on a rainy afternoon if you like to bet on racing. Don't set your expectations too high and it will be an ok place. Very worn out but cheap with a coupon.

Best tuna salad. The food is good here. I know, you would not think so but, it is. I love it here. Try it. Bet some horses or dogs and maybe play alittle poker. You would be surprised. Drink alittle and just have some fun.

We were looking for something to do on a Saturday night, so we went to the dog track. Good time beers by the bottle at the upstairs bar were reasonable.

Adopt a greyhound at the entrance or bet on the fast ones. 50 cent hot dogs and beer on Fridays. This is Florida.

It's a slightly tacky afternoon. Lots of men smoking cigars with racing forms. But, the dogs seem to be treated OK, at least what they let you see. $2. bets are fun. Virtually impossible to win. I just pick the healthiest looking animal.

Made the mistake of going on a Friday. It was 50 cent beer and hot dog day, I did not realize how many cheap people there were here from up north. There was no place to sit or stand. Lines were long to enter, place...More

The greyhound races are kind of fun for awhile. Unless a person is really into racing and betting, it get a little old after a couple of hours. We went on a Friday (when they offer $.50 hot dogs and soda). That was ok, but...More
