My husband and I go to Barona as much as we can. It is only 45 minutes away from our home in Escondido. It really feels like we are away on vacation when we are there Its been a few months since we have been, due to illness in our family, but look forward to getting back into the swing... More

Hadn't been to Barona in 2 years. It's a three hour drive each way and there are other options closer. But missed how I remembered it so we went on a Sunday morning. Every employee was kind. However it felt very forced. One employee spoke to me and was yawning the whole time. It felt like they are told to... More

They also have a small fridge and a safe for all your winnings ;). When it comes to the casino, they are the most lay back tables ever. Pay out is nice... More

Nice gaming spot. Beautiful surrounding set in mountains on a Indian Reservation. Free valet parking, greeted at door with drinks. We went in the early afternoon and the slots were busy but the tables were easily accessible.

My husband is here for a golfing event, and I was hesitant to visit after reading some bad reviews, but I'm so happy to have had the pleasure of, what I'll just call, the Barona experience. Where else do you walk thru the door to be personally welcomed and offered a glass of cold water or lemonade? Not only is... More

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... More
