I have had incidents with so-called "Gang-Bangers" the last few times I have visited this casino. Incidents of intimidation both in the casino and in the parking lot, and the casino security does nothing to curb it. It just a bad situation that makes me feel unsafe.

I passed by this casino and decided to check it out. It is a large casino. Canadian Casino Size. It was very clean. The air was good and they had lots of gaming options including 1-3NL Holdem. Lots of parking. Would come back here.

Route 66 Casino is the best in the area. It's a little farther away then the rest but you get double comps, a smaller crowd, senior club is great, $5 senior buffet on Thur/Fri and the entire staff is outstanding.

since they are several miles outside of town, this casino tries harder. They have the best casino buffet & it is especially nice if you hit a 2 for 1 or senior night
