Paula Deen's Restaurant

Last week when Mama was at the train station, she saw a billboard for Paula Deen's Restaurant.  She was quite surprised that she had a restaurant here. I guess it pays to advertise. The restaurant is actually located inside Harrah's Casino.  She read the reviews and most of them were not very good.  The restaurant was not  listed on Urbanspoon, but Mama found reviews elsewhere.(Mama requested it to be added to Urbanspoon and now she is the first one to rate it!) Dad said that we have to try it, so they did.  Mama decided she wanted to try everything, so she ordered the buffet.  It was just a few dollars more than the regular menu.  Well, it's a few dollars more if you eat the lunch buffet. If you eat the dinner buffet, then it is several dollars more.  The folks arrived at 3:45 p.m. which was still lunch but they were charged for dinner since they left at 4:30 p.m.  Yep, those restaurant people know how people come in early to get the cheaper price and stay late. It's the first time the folks have tried it and it didn't work for them.  LOL   They learned that only a few extra things were put out at dinner and if they ever eat there again, they would go for the lunch buffet.

Mama said the food was really good.  Do you want to hear everything she ate?

  • Meatloaf - it was good. It had peppers in it which gave it a nice flavor
  • Fried Chicken - it was really good
  • Corned Beef Hash - It may have been out of a can, not sure, but it was really good.
  • Green Beans - very good!
  • Mashed Potatoes - these were great!  Very creamy.
  • Mashed Sweet Potatoes - made with pineapple - different, but good
  • BBQ Spare Ribs - not good - too greasy
  • Onion Rings - very good
  • Ribeye - came out at dinner time - very thin - not good
  • Cheese Garlic Biscuit - good, but it was cold

BBQ Spareribs

Sweet Potatoes, Onion Rings

Ribeye with mushrooms - They serve full size, but Mama only wanted a little to try

There was a lot of seafood items and clam pastas.  Mama couldn't sample those. There was also a salad bar. There were desserts, but Mama couldn't even sample one.  She was stuffed.  She had hoped for cheesecake, but there wasn't any.  There were also other meats that she didn't sample because she was so full.

Mama is so glad that they tried this restaurant.  She definitely recommends the buffet because you can try so many things.  Unfortunately, she couldn't bring us home any samples.
