I love this casino. I've been coming here since the weekend I turned 18. 8 years later, I still visit regularly. YES, it's a dry casino but it's still alot of fun. It's one of the cleanest around. The smoking section doesn't overwhelm you with smoke and there's plenty to do and plenty of places to eat. They greet you...

Starting off-This was our first time visiting this casino, I was working in the San Diego area and on Fathers Day my wife and I tried to find a restaurant in the old town district, when we couldn't find any parking we thought to look up a casino since they always have a restaurant. Somehow my wife chose this one...

Oh, it HURTs to give this place just 3 bubbles. The people are SO friendly, and they try so hard! I got free overnight RV parking and there are beautiful places to walk my dog. So great, But... what do you come to a casino for? I'm normally reasonably lucky. I played for quite a while, $100, not one hit....

We live here in San Diego and have been to most of the local casinos (as well as others in Las Vegas), so we were anxious to visit Barona. At the advice of friends and family, my husband decided we could stay there for the night for his birthday. I went directly to the website to make our reservations and...
