Maybe I worded the question wrong. Let me be more clear. What is there to do that is fun and safe in Memphis? The places I have been through in Memphis are seedy and rundown. The Graceland area did not seem to safe. What is the best side of Memphis/safest?

I had one buffet in Tunica and yes, it sucked. It was also confirmed by another poster that the same buffet indeed...sucked. I am not sure about the restaurants, so once again I will ask, what is the best non-buffet restaurant in Tunica in your opinion?

I hope I was more concise this go-round.
You might want to check out Madidi's or Ground Zero, first is a nice upscale restaurant and second is a blues club owned by Morgan Freeman. They are located in Clarksdale MS.

I wish the area where the casinos are wasn't referred to as Tunica. Tunica is a town of 1,200 people located south of the casinos. And no, the people who live there don't want to become anything like Vegas. Some people just like living in small towns and don't need a city atmosphere. In fact, the casinos are/were located in Robinsonville, Mississippi which has been renamed to Tunica Resorts. The best thing about the casinos is they have helped so much with poverty.

And the airport isn't that small fyi.. it's pretty nice. And it does or did offer daily flights to Atlanta.

And as for Memphis.. in reality it is pretty seedy looking and crime-ridden if you travel straight through it. But once you get into Midtown and the East Side it's totally different.

Having lived in MS a while, I can not stand people who put the state down. Tunica has the loosest slots and odds. I hope Tunica gets the Myriad Entertainment and Resort going!

Jack Binion's and Magnolia Delta Grill at the Horseshoe, '37 Fine Dining and Muranos at the Grand, Fairbanks at the Hollywood Casino and Twain's at Sam's town. These are my favorites at the Tunica Casinos. For buffets, I would recommend Paula Deen's Buffet at Harrah's and the Buffet at Hollywood Casino...As far as other restaurants at the casinos, if they are great, I have not been to them.
For a down home buffet, try the Blue and White Cafe for lunch in the town of Tunica

Does Paula show up there? I like Paula... I'd like ta make her giggle

BTW, who knows of any Tunica diner specials? We went to the Silver Moon and enjoyed an evening of slots and dinner (I actually came home like 20 bucks better off). They had a special for first time guests who put at least 25 dollars (I think it was 25 bucks) on their slot card - the buffet was like 5 bucks or something. My bro ate his weight in steamed crab legs and it was a decent buffet all around. If there's something like that in Tunica I'd like to plan another evening out with the folks...

She does. You just have to keep checking in with them to see when she will be there. Then you have to sign up to have dinner with her.

I have found these posts "interesting" as an Australian visiting tunica April 2011, to read the comments from locals and prospective visitors from elsewhere,I must say i have visited Vegas (5 times) Reno, and casinos in other parts of the world and the old saying "you can't please everyone' rings true,aroom needs to be clean and comfortable and food,like wine is subject to personal taste,my wife and i believe the best part of travelling is the "unknown factor", you never will really know if you don't give it a go.

Horseshoe Casino Tunica, Dissapointed our group as a filthy dirty smoke filled casino the restroom toilets we covered in urine ,no attendant in sight ,the non smoking side was choked with smoke the smoking side ashtrays overflowing ,food was good but the 25 50 cent slots were aged with tape holding wheel facings on and the chrome fronts were corroded from wear . building needs remodeling with air quality improvements for patrons and employees too maybe just smoke free they will still gamble and drink the experience was able to break even and the clothing washed but not too enjoyable due to smoke filled casino floor. gold strike was about the same

The last time I was there, I stayed at Harrah's. It seemed pretty nice[maybe not the Ritz]. I stayed at the Goldstrike a couple of times and it seemed ok as well. But then again I staggered to the room so what do I know lol.
