Tunica Casinos - Where's Good to Eat?

Piranha Oct 4, 2007 10:09 AM

What's the best place to eat dinner in Tunica, MS? I haven't been for a while and when there I've usually eaten at the Horseshoe or Gold Strike steakhouses. There must be somewhere better. Is there a new restaurant at Horseshoe? Anywhere good at the Grand?

    Just remembered- one place that you really should check out is a litlle country/biker bar/juke joint called Bobo's- it has what very well may be the least appealing menu in the country!

    Where else can you go and order not only pizza rolls, but fish sticks too?

      The Horseshoe and the Grand have the best food. John Besh has a restaurant at Horseshoe called N'awlins that is great. It's probably the best in Tunica.

        N'awlins is really good- I think that the Horseshoe hass the best food by far. But if you don't want to do all of your dining in the casino, the Hollywood (the cafe not the casino) has some really killer fried shrimp. Also, over in the town of Tunica, the Blue and White has a great breakfast and a really good lunch buffet...

          Oh, the Blue & White! I used to work in Tunica, and went there quite a bit for some darn good meat & threes.

          Another adventurous choice could be Uncle Henry's, in Moon Lake - about twenty minutes from Tunica. It's been there for about eighty years, and was a frequent hangout for Faulkner. Amazing onion rings, and everything else is solid, though not mind-blowing by any means. Weeknights it's usually dead, but on a Friday or Saturday night, it can be a blast - especially if you take good advantage of their BYOB policy.

            Uncle Henry's huh? That place is now at the top of my "must try" list!

          Agreed--N'awlins in the Horseshoe is great. Everything else is typical casino fare--at least in my limited experience.

            Is N'awlins still open? I thought I had read that it was closed and it's not on the Horseshoe web site. The site refers to a Magnolia Grill instead. Anyone been there?

              I went to N'awlins back in July. I assume it's still open. I saw them working on Magnolia when I was there. It's not in the same space. The restaurants at the Horseshoe are always good, though.

            I don't know about now, but between now and next May, they are rebranding the Grand as Harrah's, and Paula Deen is opening a restaurant there with a buffet. The decor is that is is supposed to look like her house...
