The road to the casino is far from Laredo and kind of deserted. I felt safe cause you will see State Troopers throughout the drive. Best if you have a designated driver if you plan to drink at the casino. As for the casino the place is Awesome fun atmosphere definitely clean casino..plenty of parking, lots of slot machines of all kind. I liked the restaurant's, they keep the restrooms clean, the alcohol beverages are pricey. I noticed that the machines do pay often. You will certainly have tons of fun..
