Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots, New Orleans Reviews - Write a Review

  • Went my first time about a week ago. Was given $15 free play automatically for being a new member. Was given an extra $10 after providing additional info later on. Went in, got free play, sat down at a nickel machine and loaded free slot play and won $153.00. I'd say that's a WIN! Definitely going back!

  • This is top quality race track. Very clean as we went through the Stables and Facilities it was very nice.

  • Food is pricey, but worth every penny. Exotic animal races not what i expected but overall my family had a good time.

  • I go every year for the music and crawfish bread. This was my daughter's first year and we will make this our annual "must do". Although my daughter's main objective was to watch Maroon 5, it was nice to see her dancing around to the different types of music.

  • Went there on my husband birthday had a nice time
