The expansion continues at Ellis Park with the opening of a new restaurant today. Lucky Joe's Bar and Grill is the newest addition to the race park's clubhouse. It features local favorites such as Ellis relish, turkey clubs, and the famous Ellis fried chicken. The new clubhouse opened in August, and employees hope the tasty treats will draw in regulars and first-timers.
"I think it's gonna be a big draw to bring people in," said Robyn Oglesby of Ellis Park. "I've been in this community my entire life, and I know people really like new restaurants. So, it'll be a big draw."
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be served. The average meal is under $10. If you buy a meal in January, you'll receive a free slice of chocolate cake.
