    I am headed to Mississippi for a weekend soon. I am flying into Memphis and getting a rental car. The event that I am going for takes place on a Saturday a few hours away from there. and we will be done with all festivities by 8 p.m. I am considering driving back towards Memphis after that and have a decent Total Rewards price for a room at the Tunica Roadhouse (the rate is $99; it comes up over $200 on most searches...and the $99 is lower than what I am paying for the room I planned on staying in that night). This would get us closer to Memphis and also give us a chance to visit a new casino.

    Since it will be late when we arrive, we may only play at the Roadhouse. There is a chance of visiting other places, but I will likely have a few drinks and that possibility will go away quickly.

    My questions for you folks is are these...what are your thoughts on the Tunica Roadhouse? What kind of table limits are likely? Is there anything especially worth playing there?

    Thanks in advance!!

    Actually, you can have several extra drinks and still be OK. (I am assuming your reluctance is about driving). There are two other casinos within a two minute walk of the Roadhouse. One is another CET property (Horseshoe) and the other is a MGM property (Goldstrike). Both are larger than Roadhouse. I like all three. One thing about Roadhouse that I suspect you will like is that all the rooms have a stand alone Jakuzzi in the room. Great for relaxing.

    There is nothing fancy about Roadhouse, but I think that's their intended vibe. Roadhouse is pretty generous when it comes to play rating on craps and bj. Foods comps are very easy to get. If you play any table game for an hour or so you can get a couple buffet comps that can be used next door at Horseshoe. Roadhouse has very low craps/bj on the weekends, $5 min usually. The rooms are pretty good. GS and Horseshoe are next door and offer better restaurants and live music. The poker room at Horseshoe is big and offers 1-3, 2-5 NL, Omaha and big O, every blue moon.

    Been there many times. Basic rooms at Roadhouse. Horseshoe is right outside the side door. Some people even park in their covered garage then walk to Roadhouse.

    Horseshoe much more active. Walk all the way through and you walk across another side road into Gold Strike.

    Plan on hitting all three.

    I expect you will find low-limit table games ($5) in all three with the most choices at Horseshoe or Gold Strike. Horseshoe and Gold Strike will be busy on a Saturday night, not sure about Roadhouse.
