This is the first review I have ever wrote but I feel compelled to warn others. First, service was along the lines of “why are you here?” Food, it wasn’t. Cold beef dip, not sure if it was supposed to be cold or hot, because...More

This restaurant have poor service and bad food. Employees don't care and it is dirty. I am surprise they are still in business. You're better off going to McDonald's are any other fast food chain.

Another great little eatery inside of Harrah's Casino, McAlister's Deli serves of fantastic sandwiches! The French Dip may just be my favorite, but I should probably try them all one more time... in the interest in true disclosure.

offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
