Local Favorites

If you want to visit local gems where Tunica’s residents convene to eat, there are several excellent choices for fitting right in. Blue and White is an old school Southern diner in downtown Tunica, where everything has been made from scratch since 1924.

Another place with casual comfort food is Big T & Kay’s Smokehouse. Ride down to the outlet mall and you’ll find a storefront serving some of the region’s best barbecue. With a menu that also includes ribs, hamburgers, and hotdogs, Big T and Kay’s has it all.

A downtown hotspot to grab some low-key comfort food, Spuds Etc. specializes in oversized stuffed baked potatoes filled with Cajun turkey, seafood, or grilled chicken. Beyond the spuds, they also serve wings, sandwiches, pasta, and more.

For fried food inside a casino without the fuss, OG Bird fits the bill. The newest addition to Tunica and 1st Jackpot Casino, OG Bird brings all the fried chicken, fish, and burgers your appetite will allow. Finish it off with a milkshake before heading back out to the casino floor.

Buffet Options

It’s normal to be the type of diner who wants to see a spread and sample the goods. Tunica has you covered with two distinct buffet options, both of which will leave your taste buds happy.

Gold Strike’s Buffet Americana has a vast collection of dining selections, from brick oven pizzas to a Mongolian grill. There is something for everyone here; you can even purchase a to-go box to relish in buffet choices from the privacy of your room.

On the other hand, it isn’t often that you have the opportunity to enjoy a buffet while also taking in beautiful views. That’s precisely what the Fitz’s Riverview Buffet offers; feast on a wonderful meal while staring out at the storied Mississippi River.
