We have not had good trips here in the past. We made one more attempt on our way through and it was worth it. They have new and old slots, more then the last time we visited and the service was better. Its a smaller casino but we did not have trouble finding some place to spend the money. We... More

had not been here in several years, decided to stop in again. Lost quite a bit of money, but worst part is we got no play at all.(Saturday night) Don't plan to stop at this casino again.

We eat here every time we go to/through Lake Charles. Never disappoints, never. There is usually a crowd but they are very accommodating & despite all of the people they still manage to quickly & happily serve everyone. Never had a bad meal here & we try to change up our order with each visit.

When visiting - the casino portion was "down" and was told they would not know when it would be back up -- this last two days.

I've been to this place multiple times over the years, If you gamble they only have slots if you don't play the Horses, If you stop here on the way to Lake Charles leave your credit card in the car & take a minimal amount of money, they will take it Quick & don't even let you have fun playing...

If you're coming here for a concert, the venue is great. If you're coming here for slots-only gambling action, you'll be ok also. But just a tip: Don't eat the food. The food court looks very good but we had a brisket-topped baked potato and nachos, and both were essentially a big pile of slop. As well, the server who... More

I go to Delta Downs about 3 times a year. They hold the richest horse race, Delta Downs Jackpot, held in Louisiana. The atmosphere in the simulcast room is lively. The outside area gives the fan a chance to get up close to the horses. The paddock is the area to get close to the horses. The music throughout the... More

As a horseman I have been to quite a few race tracks and I have to say this one is one of the nicest. The track kitchen has the best food and I like the fact that there is a holding barn that the horses wait until it's time to go up to the paddock. I love that they have... More

We truly enjoyed this place! Didn't really win on the slots, but we were here for the live horse races. Been to Lone Star Park and Louisiana Downs several times, but this track seemed more fun. Free admission and $2 hot dogs are awesome! The place is clean and the employees are very friendly... the races were quite good. Worth... More
