This past weekend I ate at Paula Deen Buffet restaurant at Harrah’s Casino in Tunica, MS. For those of you who don’t know who she is, she’s one of the stars on The Food Network, and she’s famous for Southern-style cooking. She’s also famous for using butter in almost everything she cooks. As you might guess, the food was great. I don’t even want to know how many calories I consumed.
The restaurant has 7 different buffet lines, and none of them were the kind that are just there for looks (like fruit*) — there was something scrumptious on every one. The fried chicken was the best I’d ever eaten from a restaurant — it was very close to what my mom makes. The baked macaroni and cheese was incredible. I could go on and on about how great the food is. Let’s just say I could eat there every day. I do need to mention that one of the buffet lines has only desserts, and from the ones I sampled, it was all good. I have to recommend the chocolate ooey-gooey butter bars — I even brought back a box of those for later. 🙂
If you ever get the chance to eat there, by all means, do so. (I wonder what needs to happen to get one of those to open in central Arkansas…)
* I have nothing against fruit, but when I go to an all-you-can-eat buffet, I’m not there for fruit.
