Hoosier Park Racing And Casino Buffet

Table games

For as big as the one-story casino is, the number of table games leaves a little to be desired. I know racinos are more known for their slot play, but 28 table games just aren’t enough.

Harrah’s Hoosier Park does offer a nice selection of blackjack play, but we wish they would add five to 10 more table games.

  • Blackjack
  • Double Deck Blackjack
  • Blazing 7s Blackjack
  • Roulette
  • Craps
  • Three Card Poker

Harrah’s does not offer a poker room. The high-limit area offers Double Deck Blackjack and a hand-shuffle blackjack table.

Slots

We complained about there not being enough table games, but that definitely isn’t the case with slots. There are over 2,000 slot machines from penny to $100 spins. Almost all the machines are new, giving the floor a new and exciting look.

  • Pacman Wild Edition
  • Top Dollar Premium Slots
  • Heat ‘Em Up Power Wheel
  • Fate Of The 8 Power Wheel
  • Elvis Shake Rattling Reel
  • Texas Tea Pinball
  • Wonder 4 Tower
  • Buffalo Grand

The Book

The Book is the name of all Caesars property sportsbooks in Indiana. Harrah’s Hoosier Park is no different. This location is about as convenient as can be for such a big property.

It is just off the casino floor and easily accessible for anyone partaking in horse racing. The Book is also a close enough walk to the bar if you’d like a beverage to help calm your nerves for the last few minutes of your sports bet.

The theater-style seating is great when watching the giant television board with 10 TVs but not great if you want to share some food with a group. The seating is probably the most comfortable setup in all of the Indiana sportsbooks, but we wish they would have taken out a row to add more standup tables for sharing an appetizer or discussing a game with your group of friends.

Hours of operations

  • Monday – Thursday: 11 am – 11 pm
  • Friday: 11 am – midnight
  • Saturday: 10 am – midnight

Online gaming

Caesars has started working on a mobile app for its sports betting locations. We are guessing that just because it is Caesars, it will be one of the more quality mobile sports betting apps, not only in Indiana but in all the states where gambling is legalized.

Since it has so many locations where sports betting is legalized, look for this to be sooner rather than later.

Horse racing

Harrah’s Hoosier Parks is a 7/8 mile race track featuring harness racing from March to November. Parking is free, and children are welcome throughout the horse area, just not in the casino.

Harrah’s Hoosier Park just announced that it will again be hosting the Breeders Crown events for 2020. The event brought in big crowds and exciting action back in 2017.

Racing will return to the track on March 27. The off-track betting area is open all year round for horse betting enthusiasts.

Dining

Harrah’s Hoosier Park offers seven restaurants and a bar. There are even more dining options available when the outside area opens during racing season.

Homestretch Steakhouse

This fine dining restaurant has a great view of the race track and fresh steaks and seafood. The charbroiled hand-trimmed steaks are its specialty, but the seafood selection is superb as well. Homestretch Steakhouse is a great way to end the day after enjoying live horse racing.

Hours of operation

  • Closed Sunday and Monday
  • Tuesday – Thursday: 5 pm – 10 pm
  • Friday and Saturday: 5 pm – 11 pm

Prime Harvest Buffet

This buffet has a little bit of everything and is open every day except Mondays. On Friday and Saturday nights, it has all-you-can-eat prime rib and seafood. On Sundays, it offers an all-day brunch, which features prime rib.

Hours of operationFeather falls casino oroville entertainment department.

  • Monday: Closed
  • Tuesday – Thursday: 11 am – 8 pm
  • Friday and Saturday: 11 am – 3 pm, 4 pm – 10 pm
  • Sunday: 11 am – 7 pm

Voodoo Bar and Grill

If you are a barbecue lover, this is the place for you. The meats all feature a dry rub and have a little bit of bite with Cajun flavoring. This is some of the best Louisiana food outside of New Orleans with all the traditional southern offerings.

Beans and rice, jambalaya, shrimp po-boys (our personal favorite), and, of course, gumbo. If you are not a po-boy or shrimp fan, we recommend the pulled pork sandwich.

Hours of operation

  • Sunday and Monday: 11 am – 9 pm
  • Tuesday – Thursday: 11 am – 10 pm
  • Friday and Saturday: 11 am – midnight

Homestretch Clubhouse

This is the Homestretch Steakhouse without the big price tag. It is a perfect place to grab a cheeseburger while enjoying the races. The Clubhouse offers a buffet on racing days.

Hours of operation

  • Sunday and Monday: Closed
  • Tuesday – Saturdays: 5:30 – until racing is over

Dog N Suds

Anderson

This is exactly like the old style drive-thrus of yesterday. Delicious coney dogs, fries, and, of course, root beer. The root beer floats are a perfect treat if you’ve brought the kids to the races.

Hours of operation

  • They are open Friday and Saturdays during racing season.

Caballo Loco Grill & Cantina

This is your typical Mexican restaurant. Good margaritas and the usual; tacos, burritos and really good salsa.

Hours of operation

  • Sunday – Thursday: Closed
  • Friday and Saturday: 11 am – 11 pm

The Big Deli

The New York-style deli is a great place to grab a sandwich, whether you are heading to the casino or leaving for the day. This isn’t your typical cold cut stop. The burgers are great, and they have patty melts, chicken salad, and the Philly steak is the best thing on the menu. The Big Deli is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Entertainment

There are three bars on property. Pegasus Lounge has the best view of the race track if you are looking to enjoy a cocktail while you bet on some horses. The Double R Bar is the best place to enjoy a drink while you watch your favorite sporting event on one of their big-screen TVs. The Shoe is also located in a great spot for watching the horses, as the name would suggest.

There are two entertainment venues on property. The Terrace Showroom is a large facility that hosts bands and comedians. It is located right by the Pegasus Lounge and a great place to enjoy a concert or show. The venue is large enough that Jamey Johnson and Dwight Yoakam are both performing shows in the next couple of months.

During the summer, the Outdoor Music Center turns into one of the hottest outdoor concert areas in all of Indiana. You can enjoy a full day of action, enjoy horse racing, and then walk over to enjoy a great concert just outside the casino.

Rating: As buffets go in the Muncie area this is a 10 of 10.

At $10.75 for the lunch buffet, it’s well worth it. Tucked into the gaming capital of East Central Indiana-Hoosier Park Racing and Casino for the uninitiated-lays a gem of a restaurant. But then I am biased. I love buffets. They are a smorgasbord of taste when done well. Of course, not all buffets are created equal though. Here in East Central Indiana, we have Chinese buffets, places like Ryan’s and Sirloin Stockade, and pizza buffets. The variety at these sometimes is lacking, to say the least. But the small buffet inside the original racing track side of Hoosier Park is one of the two best deals around that I have been to (my review of Welliver’s in Hagerstown is forthcoming, provided they are still in business by the time I can get back down there). And, as I mentioned in my first sentence, the price is hard to beat.

For just under $11 I was able to gorge myself on perfectly browned, crispy fried shrimp, moist and juicy fried chicken (which is difficult to maintain in a buffet environment), and a variety of meats cut for you depending on the day (sausage and turkey breast were the meats on the day I went). Their lines also have pasta, calamari and green beans. I highly recommend the green beans. There is an initial sweetness to them that I find hard to describe, it is almost honey in sweetness, but that description just doesn’t quite do it justice. That light, honey-ish sweetness sweeps through your mouth and down your throat with each succulent bite too.

The shrimp were crisp and brown, something too often not the case. We’ve all seen those buffets that have soggy or nearly burnt fried shrimp, or bit into a taste of flour instead of a chunk of shrimp. This is not one of those buffets. A bite of the shrimp results in a snapping sound just as it should.

Hoosier Park Racing And Casino Buffet Prices

The chicken I had was surprisingly moist and juicy, a feat not easily achieved in restaurants where food stays out on steam tables. I was on my lunch break and nearly had the juice squirt out and soil my shirt once. That, I discovered, is how moist the breasts and wings are at Hoosier Park.

They do have a salad bar that has a nice selection, but I admit that I am not a salad kind of guy. Give me meat and sugar any day of the week. And that would be my cue to segue into a discussion about the desserts. I have never been to a buffet as small as this one and had such a huge selection of desert from which to choose. On both occasions I’ve been the selections must have ranged in the twenties someplace. Oodles of cheesecake, sweet potato pie, assorted cream pies and fruit pies and cakes cover three levels and three or four sections of countertop (roughly 15 feet give or take). I am not a particular fan of pie so I leave the review of those to another foodie, but as a fan of cake and cake-like desserts I highly recommend the cheesecakes-any of them.

Harrah's Hoosier Park Casino

Though small, I think this quaint place rivals those of its big brothers and sisters in Las Vegas. Our experience at two buffets in Sin City sated our needs with no problem and they were both well worth the money, which isn’t saying much considering one was free for guests and at the other one we were able to eat at with a deep discount.

Hoosier Park Casino Slots

So when you get over to Anderson, stop into the best little buffet in town. It’s not a gamble at all. If you want to go gastronomic gambling go down the road to a Chinese or pizza buffet. If you want to feel like you pulled one over on the house, then go to Hoosier Park and Casino.
