“Not worth the time”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

They are close to some projects from which they derive the bulk of their customers. This is not their fault but it is the reality. What is their fault is that the operation is not well run. From food service, staff friendliness, general cleanliness, and poor security when entering and leaving the whole operation is third rate at best. The place is smokey and the food is average. The dog races were alot of fun. There are other options pretty close that are much, much nicer. There is absolutley no comparison valid to any casino in tunica

“Not any better after 22 years.”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

Visited the Southland Dog Track and found it was not any better than our first visit over 22 years ago. In fact it was worse. The seats were badly stained. Smoke filled the entire area. The only non-smoking area was placed so you could not see the finish line. All the television monitors were old CRTs and most had pictures that went in and out. They need to bring the facilities up to date and make them more inviting.

“Great Place to Watch the Greyhounds Race”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I agree that the smoking degrades the experience, but it appears that the management are trying to update the facility. The dogs are fantastic and the buffet has something for everyone. A fun night out.

“Gamble at your own risk”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

The staff is very friendly and helpful. After $20 they give you as free play (if it is your first visit) goes fast. The slots are unimaginative--they don't do much. There is no glitz like in Vegas.
