  • We've been to La Bayou 3 times, always so much fun and staff are amazing. Can't wait to see you again in March, get those margaritas ready :P
  • Went here a few times during my vegas trip with the wife. Very friendly staff, free drinks and penny and nickel slots. You can't go wrong. We both enjoyed Fremont Street in general alot more than the strip. The people are friendlier and the prices much fairer.
  • This is a can't miss spot on Fremont Street in Vegas. Skip the Strip and join in on the real fun at La Bayou! I will definitely be back next trip for great slot machines and giant daquiris, that are strong enough to do the trick :)
  • My favorite casino in downtown vegas! Have a football of their daiquiri!
  • had fun at the penny slots and lots of free drinks. what more can you ask for? A tiny little hole in the wall but FUN FUN FUN and that is what Vegas is all about !
