Tunica Roadhouse sounds like the title of a 1940s B-movie, doesn't it?  And that's just the atmosphere that this casino tries to recreate with its walls covered in period ads, movie posters, sheet music and other memorabilia.  The Roadhouse is adjacent to the Horseshoe Tunica.  For related information about the Horseshoe, click here.
The nearest major airport is Memphis, about a 45-minute drive.  Only charters fly into Tunica Municipal Airport.


There is no indoor parking garage, but all guests may use complimentary valet service.


Casino overview
The casino has 36 table games, and approximately 1,300 slot and video poker machines. 
The casino is open seven days a week, 24 hours a day.  There are no non-smoking areas.
"Easy Pay" tickets issued by the slot machines are valid only for 60 days, so be sure to cash them in before you leave town.
The only "dining" option is limited food service at the Riverstage Showbar.  Hours are generally 5 p.m. to midnight Monday to Thursday, 11 a.m. to 4 a.m. on Fridays, 9 a.m. to 4 a.m. on Saturdays, and 9 a.m. to midnight on Sundays.

Other dining options are available next door at the Horseshoe, just a short walk across the way.

If you are a registered guest at the Roadhouse, you can charge meals and other services from the Horseshoe.
For entertainment, check out the Riverstage Showbar.
Hotel overview
The kitschy decor in the casino and other public areas does not extend to the rooms.  The hotel has 134 rooms, each with a small Jacuzzi tub.  While it's billed as an all-suite hotels, the rooms are basically standard rooms of average size. 
All have safes, coffeemakers and refrigerators.  Bathrooms have double sinks with a separate walk-in shower.  Toiletries are Gilchrist and Soames.  There is no closet, but plenty of room in the armoire.
Seven Stars Lounge
There is no Seven Stars Lounge, but the closest "full-service" Diamond Lounge is located next door at the Horseshoe.  From 4 to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sundays, a “pop-up” Diamond Lounge is open in the rear of the casino with a bar and limited food service.

Nearby Memphis offers a number of different options for touring when you’re in the mood to take a break from the casinos.

One of the most prestigious is the National Civil Rights Museum.

If historic houses, gardens and art galleries are more your thing, check out Shelby Farms Park, the Dixon Gallery & Gardens, the Magevney House, the Mallory-Neely House, the Pink Palace Family of Museums, Victorian Village, and the Woodruff-Fontaine House Museum.

There also are Sun Studio, the Gibson Guitar Factory, the Rock 'n' Soul Museum, the Stax Museum of American Soul Music, and, of course, Graceland, pictured above.

Another thing to do is go hang out on Beale Street any evening.  There's no traffic and there are typically thousands of folks hanging out, having a great time listening to live music and consuming adult beverages.

Should you choose this for your Annual Retreat?
If you have an aversion to cigarette smoke, this is not the place you want to be.  The entire casino is smoking.  However, with two casinos/hotels owned by Caesars
(pretty much everyone recommends staying at the Horseshoe), as well as the Gold Strike next door (owned by MGM), a high-end gourmet restaurant (Jack Binion's Steak), a buffet, and an Asian restaurant all at the Horseshoe, Tunica is certainly a destination to consider.  [There is no food service at Roadhouse, with the exception of limited service at the Riverstage Showbar see above.]

One problem is that, if you stay over a weekend, your options for breakfast and lunch are limited.  Monday through Friday JB's Cafe at the Horseshoe is open for breakfast from 6 to 11 a.m, but on Saturday and Sunday your only choice for breakfast and lunch is the buffet.  The Village Square Buffet serves brunch for $16.99 per person between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.  Both Starbucks and 8 oz. Burger Bar at Horseshoe serve breakfast, but you can't sign those charges to your room
a requirement in order to use your $500 folio credit.  (You can use your folio credit for spa services, though.)

Also, without a car, you may feel a bit isolated.  Rental cars are not available at the Roadhouse or Horseshoe, so be sure to rent at the airport if you think you'll want a car.

Inside Information'satlanticcity/Total%20Touch.jpg

This casino is equipped with Caesars proprietary Total Touch system that allows customers to order drinks, redeem free play, check their Total Rewards account balances, and receive real-time offers based on play

■ If you're playing to earn a daily tier bonus, you'll have to manually calculate your combined tier credits from the Roadhouse and the Horseshoe.  The amount shown as your daily play on the Total Touch pad reflects only your score at the casino at which you are playing.

■ There is $5.99 per transaction fee to use the ATMs.

■ Check with the cashier for current check-cashing and eCheck policies.

■ Guests staying at the Roadhouse can use the pool at the Horseshoe next door by showing their room keys.

■ There is a stiff 10 percent tax on food and beverage which comes out of your folio credit, so, essentially, you've really got only about $450 to spend.   If you're into spa treatments, you're better off using your credit at the spa, and use Quick Rewards at the dining outlets.  Using Quick Rewards forgives the sales tax.
