On the Cheap by H Scot Krause | Jerry’s Nugget Casino has "beefed up" the food specials in the Race & Sports Book! Watching the Sunday races just got better there. Jerry’s Nugget is now featuring Track Sandwiches every Sunday. These prime carved sandwiches are just like food you’d get at the racetrack – hand carved, juicy, fresh and tasty. These sandwiches are available free to good race bettors. All other patrons can purchase for $3 each.
The carving station opens at 12:30 p.m. at Jerry’s. Mark Dufty, the Casino’s Race and Sports Book Director said, "We’ve had our carving station open for a couple of Sundays now and the guests are really eating it up, so to speak. But all joking aside, you can’t get a better value than these great sandwiches. It really brings the track experience to our book."
Sandwich selections range from hand carved Prime Rib, Roasted Breast of Turkey and BBQ Beef Brisket.
