If you decide to come to the track early, you can take advantage of the great prices on breakfast at the track right there at the Jerry Simms’s Turf Paradise facility. Now check the hours before you just show up, but most days you can get into the park at 9:00 am. If you decide to head up to the Turf Club for breakfast, you can find a very filling meal of eggs, potatoes, bacon or sausage and toast. I tend to go with the three egg omelet, stuffed with ham, cheese, and bell peppers. You get that with hash browns and toast. This place serves an excellent breakfast, guys.
For a change of pace, try the breakfast down one level, at the Clubhouse. In addition to meals like you can find in the Turf Club, they have a breakfast fajitas skillet to die for, if you’re into spicy breakfast food. You can find a sizzling breakfast with seasoned potatoes, chorizo sausage, peppers, and onions, cheese, served with salsa, eggs, and either toast or tortillas.
For days when I want something sweet, I go with the thick Texas toast. The chef there at the track says the secret to this amazing French toast is that the batter contains a bit of cinnamon, and then the toast is rolled in crushed frosted flakes. Add some butter and warm maple syrup, and I am set to enjoy the rest of the morning!
The Turf Club at Jerry Simms’s Turf Paradise
If you want to have an outstanding view of the track from the comfort of the indoors, then you want to go to the Turf Club. This dining room is found on the third floor, overlooking the track. This location at Jerry Simms’s Turf Paradise is one of my favorites. There are tiered tables with great views of the course and the scenic landscape.
In addition to watching the live action that is going on outside, your table is fitted with flat screen tv monitors with a simulcast of other races going on around the United States, in case you placed a wager or two while you were dining.
Reservations for this dining room in Jerry Simms’s Turf Paradise will give you peace of mind, and I highly recommend same. The attire here is expected to be a little upscale, so dress like you are going to eat at a country club.

Lunch at the Turf Club at Jerry Simms’s Turf Paradise
For lunch most Saturdays, you will find me heading over to the Turf Club at Jerry Simms’s Turf Paradise to pick up a prime rib slider platter: thinly-sliced prime rib, sautéed onions, served on warm rolls with an excellent dip and a side of fries.
If you are celebrating a special occasion at the Jerry Simms’s Turf Paradise track (or maybe a great day of wagering), you may want to check out the New York strip steak. You get a big 10-ounce steak, cooked to order, served with garlic French bread, onion rings, and a side.
The Turf Club at Jerry Simms’s Turf Paradise is also a great place to get an Angus burger or a ham and brie sandwich.

The Clubhouse at Jerry Simms’s Turf Paradise is another dining option with the opportunity for reserved seating. It’s on the second level, with a great view of the track. There are tiered seats available here as well, set up to seat two or four people. You have television monitors here just like in the Turf Club, and you can watch simulcast races inside and see the horses running outside on the track. This is a casual attire kind of place, but just like the Turf Club, I would make reservations if you are coming.

There is a lounge, found by the Turf Club at Jerry Simms’s Turf Paradise, on the third level, called The Silks Lounge. It’s an intimate bar, able to seat around 60 people. You can get the same food you can purchase at the Turf Club. Business attire will be just right for you, but I suggest you call before you show up, as this room is sometimes reserved for a private party event at Jerry Simms’s Turf Paradise racetrack.
