Roadhouse Tunica has a hot tub in every room. They're down to one decent restaurant, a bit
overpriced for my taste. On the plus side they've got the best VP schedules in Tunica. Roadhouse
sits next to Horseshoe, so you can use any Harrahs benefits at either casino.
So if in Tunica, stay & play at Roadhouse, but eat next door at Horseshoe (excellent buffet).
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:
Harrah's Paula Deans
I had not been here for several years and was pleasantly surprised to see the new decor. This used to be a remarkably dull casino with Tunica's worst buffet by far. It now has a much better layout with a lot of new slots plus a separated game area. I skipped the buffet still remembering the last time I ate there. However, I did stay and play for an evening. Again, did not make a fortune, but managed to leave with most everything I arrived still intact.
