A brunch ticket at the park buys you brunch and fantastic viewing seats... because hello, you don't have to sit outside in the Texas heat.
We sat right next to the window and therefore had an unencumbered view of the racing. *highfive*
Alright, let's talk food. It was a very standard Sunday brunch, with an pasta/omelet station, salad bar, hot dish options, and a variety of dessert. Here's a slathering of some of the stations:
The tex mex station was the cheesiest (both literally and figuratively), and the one from which I ate the most. I am so embarrassing.
Brunch also comes with a free mimosa or glass of champagne:
Here are some of our plates:
The food is good, but not great. You get the feeling that every item probably came from Costco - which, you know, I could totally get behind.
Especially when there's a vat of heated melted dark chocolate, and you can do things like this:
There's also an ice cream bar and multiple kinds of cobbler (there needs to be more cobbler in the northeast). The vat of chocolate was definitely our table's most popular item.
Brunch starts around 11:30a, and you can sit for as long as the races go. They don't take away the food until after 4:30pm-ish, so it means you can eat for a good five hours. Which we absolutely did, while betting on and cheering for the horses.
These are all the bets I lost. Thank god I'm a cheapo and stuck with the $2 bets. ;)
I super enjoyed our time at the park - eating, laughing, and screaming for my randomly-selected horses to win... I highly recommend a visit!!
