Notable Reviews from Turlock Poker Room Players

“I enjoy every moment I get to play at the Turlock Poker Room. Great hospitality!!! A casino where a waitress can bring your food from a place other than the inside of the building. Additionally, I like the fact that I can enjoy my Starbucks and play No-Limit.” –Anonymous

“First off, I work like to commend the TPR staff and floormen. The team they have there now is second to none. When you walk in the door you’re usually greeted by Mario Alvarez who makes sure all your needs are met. The owner Joe has one of the most genuine and compassionate hearts that I have ever seen in a casino / card room when you have someone who truly cares about his business you can tell right away by the atmosphere of the place. His personality shows through by the team he has working for him. This is the card room that truly treats you like family, which is hard to find. Which makes this one very unique I can’t say enough about the tournament directors, dealers, services girls, cage workers and right down to the chip runners.” –Anonymous

The Bottom Line

Even though the card room has only seven tables, Turlock Poker Room gets four stars as it is a gem for small stakes players. The biggest knocks against the room are its size and lack of higher stakes action, but the room makes up for this by treating players well and having consistent cash game and tournament action.
