    I was just there last night! I love getting a bite off the Taco truck and man there food is so good! Great review! You got me wanting to go back again! Next week!

    Awww, too bad you guys had to wait so long for mediocre food! I wonder what it would have been like (food and wait) at the first place! The food truck thing is pretty cool looking though. It fits a casino but would be weird elsewhere! We don’t travel to casinos that often but usually sick with their buffets when we eat there.

      Hi Lynn – Yeah, it was a bummer. I think the food truck might have been a better choice, haha! I try to shy away from buffets, I never feel like I get my money’s worth and it doesn’t always taste that fresh. They are still remodeling and putting more restaurants back in, I’m curious and want to try Pink’s sometime.

    Awwww I’m so glad to hear that you and Jake saved that puppy’s life. I tried to click on the link but it didn’t show anything so maybe the owners found him πŸ™‚

    That’s awful the service was that bad. I don’t know much about this casino. Pala is also kid friendly and has the AYCE lobster on Tues/Thurs.

    Poor S. I hate seeing kids scarf down food they don’t want to eat πŸ™ Poor guy.

    At the the cream puff donut was amazing. Happy bday Mr Mary’s Dad !

      Hi Faye – OMG you’re right they took Sam down! I double checked the “Adoption” page too but he’s not there so I hope hope hope he is back with his family, why else would they take it down! Yay! Thanks for the tip about Pala being kid friendly, that is good to know! The cream filled crueller was a nice treat to have after all of that!
