  • Parking is expensive but not as bad as the concession though. Bring lots of cash! Pulled pork was average. Burgers were decent. Pizza was meh at best and the most overpriced. Mini doughnuts were pretty decent.
  • Cool but old football stadium. Still has that 80s Olympic feel!
  • Great atmosphere and the crowd really gets into the game spirit. Whether it's a Stamps game or a Dinos game, it's always energetic.
  • Showing its age but you can still have a good time.
  • pretty good place, lots of fun to be had
