The Sports Gallery is a great place to grab a bite when you are at Tampa Bay Downs. The menu reads like a lap around the track with special sections for every straight away  and corner.  The Home Stretch brings you things like seasonal crab cakes, and the smothered steak (grilled sirloin smothered in mushrooms, onions, green peppers and provolone cheese) and served with onion petals or seasoned fries. The menu is vast, so we'd suggest perusing it before you start handicapping, it might take a few minutes.
