Gastronomy In Tunica

We had the opportunity to dine in two outstanding buffets during our recent visit to Memphis and Tunica, The Paula Deen Buffet at Harrah's and the Village Square Buffet at the Horseshoe in Tunica, Mississippi.

"I Hope Y'all Are Hungry"
My wife and I are pretty big fans of Paula Deen on The Food Network. She's fun to watch and the food she cooks looks very good. Visiting her buffet was one of the main reasons for traveling to Tunica.

It was well worth the trip. We went through and sampled a little bit of everything - and everything was excellent. Normally, I don't expect gourmet class food at a buffet, but this buffet was certainly different.

One nice touch was the recipe cards left at the buffet stations for guests to take with. I snagged one of each so J can make some of the things we tried here at home. She's good enough to pull it off. 

There is even a gift shop in the front of the food area one can buy Paula Deen goodies and souveniers.

The price was higher than many buffets I've been to, but it was worth every penny.

Unexpected Buffet Surprise
The next evening we found ourselves in the Horseshoe after some folks we ran into suggested we might enjoy it more than the Harrah's. When we arrived we found they were offering a free buffet. I don't normally turn down a free meal, but I would have gladly paid for this one.

It was Friday, so there was seafood "a-plenty" to be had. All sorts of seafood cooked all sorts of ways were on hand. Just like in Paula's, we tried a little bit of everything and were not disappointed. Again, this place is well worth checking out.
