Connected to a large, rambling bar/restaurant called Mongo's, though there is a door between the two establishments that is usually kept closed (except when someone needs to use the bathroom), which keeps the sounds of karaoke night blissfully muted for us poker players.
The interior of the poker room is absolutely gorgeous. An old fashioned room with high ceilings and a fake interior railing that looks like "balconies for the buildings looking down on the town square you're in". Windows and fake buildings painted on the upper ceiling walls add to the cool ambience. Nice ceiling fans and suspended spotlights that keep players cool but well-lit.
A large LCD TV is hung on the wall for players to watch while they play if you like. A comfy leather sofa is next to the window at the front door for you to wait on while waiting for a seat. A third unused poker table is pushed up against the wall - maybe it's for tournaments? It seems to be normally unused, since it's covered with newspapers.
A fun place to play poker, and very pleasant surroundings, too.
Tables and Chairs: 10-seat tables with nice felt and vinyl. Fixed leg chairs with nice cloth padding.
Parking: Decent amount of parking in the combined restaurant/bar/casino parking lot.
Smoking: No smoking allowed in the building under California law.
Service and Comps Edit
Occasional service from the waitresses who wander through the poker room from the restaurant/bar every now and then. No discount for seated players.
Self-serve snacks, coffee, and water, and also a self-serve soda fountain, right next to the tables. All are free for seated players.
