Well, there's probably a lot of good information in this write-up, but I only got as far as the first paragraph, which ends with, "there are definitely worse places to visit."

That was meant to be ironic, people without a proper appreciation for gambling value often speak ill of the place and its clientele, much more ill than the place should rightfully be spoken of, so it's an ironic statement mostly meant for such people.

From what few times I've been there, I find it to be a fun and friendly place. They are the only place in Vegas to allow doubling on three cards.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

That in itself was enough to sell me, what a cool rule!

Other than its sister property, the Big Horn.

There's already a few reviews, one was mine. I should have included my comments here also, but I like the place, and have been there many times on trips to Vegas. I like a place like that better than the fancy joints on the Strip. Seriously. It's just different. I recommend the Longhorn.
Don't believe anything until it is officially denied.

Now that's the place I kinda know, and... don't mind, On some days when I don't feel like shaving or changing my slept-in shirt & could really use having someone just put some straightforward no-frill breakfast chow in front of me after some nocturnal misadventure. I may have sometimes been guilty of falling into more of a sneering tone about it than what's really merited by anything I've directly seen in there. In fact I'm pretty sure I've done a little of that. If I was okay with The Western now and then in the wee small hours, before they closed it & pretty much tied a muck resistant bag over its corpse, then I should probably keep in mind that Longhorn is at least two full notches or more above some of the lower parts of my own rather stretchable personal standards.

I don't know beans about blackjack rules, but I liked the review for the brush strokes coming through in a way that should be helpful for visitors sorting out their vacation wanderings or gambling conquest missions. There's never been a time I was in there regularly, and it has been a while now for me too. But I thought the write-up did a really fine job giving a realistic feel for what it is about, and isn't, or at least what it has seemed like to me when I have stopped in. I'd refer people to this to clue them in better than I'd do if asked: "What's that?"
Nevermind.

DrawingDead,

Thank you very much for the extremely high praise in your second paragraph! I also legitimately laughed out loud about at least two or more full notches above some of the lower parts of your own stretchable personal standards! That's exactly how I think about it, and would have loved to have phrased it half as well!
