Spent a few days here for a convention. There are a number of dining options in the facility, this is a review of the "Texan Station" one, whose menu seemed to be identical to the room service menu. The Texan Station is a sports bar that is inside the building. There is a large end area filled with an immense 52 foot television driven by three projectors in the ceiling (the technology was actually quite remarkable; there was no visible "seam" between the projected images) that creates a video wall with multiple images projected on to it. That end of the room is filled with lounge chairs and small tables, the back of the place has more normal restaurant tables and lots of hanging flat televisions.

Food was typical bar food, not very interesting. Ended up having a few meals here over the days, they are best at nachos, fries, dips, and other things I wasn't interested in. Salads were OK. If you have a car there are most likely better things nearby.

Bottom line, fun experience, food OK.
