Attended a Wynonna concert there, gambled a little and had dinner in the restaurant. We had the chicken strip basket, it was wonderful!! You get 4 or 5 strips and they taste great!

This casino has a huge entrance. Of course, it stinks. I couldn't even go inside it smelled so bad. We stayed at the hotel attached to the casino.
