  • Always fun for individuals or a whole family. Everyone should attend the track when in town. You can go down and see the horses and jockeys up close before each race.  more »
  • We stopped in to check out the Billy the Kid casino and almost choked to death on the smoke! Dirty, outdated, and creepy! Don't bother if you're looking for a place to play the slots.  more »
  • Went for the annual Cowboy Symposium and had a good time. Great venue for live music. Dinner at the Jockey Club was incredible. Can't wait for race season to start!  more »

  • We were only there for the food, we don't Gamble and they weren't having any live horse races. both times that we went there they were just showing and betting on races around the country that were running at other tracks. The food was good the service was good. Did not go into the casino but it did look clean.
  • Had a great time met wonderful people there, I do wish they would separate the smoking but all in all it was a great time. The atmosphere was great the simulcast race was amazing we did really well. The waitress was very short handed but back up arrived and she did her best. I will return!!!
  • Not crowded , Good restaurant. Casino wasn't crowded. Off racing season. Billy's was very good. Saturday night prime rib or rib eye steak was very good and only $14.99 if I remember. Great bargain and quiet.
  • The casino has the friendliest people and the bar and wait staff allways take the time to make sure everything is Awesome
  • I absolutely love the Billy the Kid Casino especially when you compare it to the travel center and Casino Apache. Billy the Kid slot machines actually pay off and they have fun Hot Seat drawings that you're guaranteed someone will be chosen and you have a excellent chance even if you are not a member of the Mescalero.
