Recently - the Horseshoe Casino invited me to come check out their Spread Buffet. I've been to every other restaurant (Margaritaville, Bobby's Burger Palace, Cafe Italia, Jack Binion's) - so it was about time I experienced the buffet - right?
There are seven different cuisines at the Spread Buffet: Rhineland, Asian, Italian, Heartland, Mexican, Marketplace and Dessert. I was sure to sample them ALL (for journalistic purposes of course)! The pizza is the same as is served at Cafe Italia - and I like it for sure - very thin crust. There is peel & eat shrimp for days. Our friend Dan said the fish tacos were his favorite thing on the whole buffet. We were starting off on a good foot for sure.
But our night wasn't over...
We then got to go see The Fray at the Shoe (the front lawn)! We were lucky enough to get to watch the show from the patio at Margaritaville that overlooks The Shoe. This is the way to watch a concert! You're up above everybody and the patio has free drinks and free food. Yeah - pretty awesome. I'm not sure what the charge is for this - but for a good show - it's worth it! No standing, no fighting to see, loved it.
Why Should You Go? I liked it and definitely found plenty of good options that were REALLY tasty. For the price, I'm not sure how often I'll be back. If I was doing a mid-afternoon lunch/dinner - it's definitely worth it. The concert was also a blast! The Fray was the last show of the summer but they'll be back next summer with a whole new concert series.
