TUNICA ROADHOUSE GREAT .25 VP. FREE DRINKS APLENTY, ORDER DIRECTLY FROM YOUR SLOT MACHINE. DARN GOOD DRINK SERVICE, HARDLY A 5 MINUTE WAIT. STAYED HERE A FEW YEARS BACK AND ENJOYED THE JACUZZI STYLE TUB (IN EVERY ROOM I'M SURE). DECENT ROOM RATES, IF NOT FREE. SKIP THE BUFFET IF THEY STILL HAVE,JUST CROSSOVER TO THE 2ND BEST TUNICA BUFFET AT HORSESHOE. PAULA DEEN'S BUFFET IS TOP-NOTCH, BUT YA GOTTA DRIVE 5 MILES OR SO TO HARRAH'S.
The rooms here are the nicest in Tunica. They are spacious and the bathroom area is very upscale with marble and glass enclosures. The check-in staff is friendly. We have had a short wait every time we have checked in.
My wife and I are blackjack and video poker players. The video poker has great payouts, but the machines are old (CRTs). We never have a problem getting a machine. The drink service is infrequent in the slot and video poker areas.
These is my favorite table game area in Tunica. The double deck is $15 minimum, which is a middle value for Tunica. There are generally 1-2 double deck tables and 1-2 21+3 tables open. The dealers are friendly, fellow players all seem to have a good attitude, and the roadhouse decor and country/classic rock sound track make me feel at home. The TVs above the tables are great; especially during football season. Nothing better in life than watching football, playing blackjack, and free drinks all at the same time!
The pit bosses are also friendly and interact with the customers instead of making you feel like suspected criminal. The drink service at the tables is average.
The cashiers are courteous, but the service is not memorable.
We have not tried the diner at the Roadhouse. Since this is a Harrah's property, the comp buffets are to the Horseshoe buffet, which is pretty good.
My order for rating the Tunica buffets I have eaten at:
