The Buffet

A winning feast for the family

We have a lucky seven stations at our world-class casino buffet. Try local Cajun specialties like freshly made Boudin sausage and braised oxtail, or go for down home BBQ favorites like smoked brisket and deep-fried turkey. And no matter which dessert you choose — pie, cake, cookies, hand-dipped ice cream, and sugar-free treats — it’ll be golden.
