Red Hawk Casino
One of the newest casinos in Northern California, Red Hawk Casino is owned by the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians and is located in, unsurprisingly, Shingle Springs which is right outside of Placerville.
The buffet, looking promising. Service was somewhat slow, however. I understand that it was dinner time, but really, we shouldn’t have practically kidnap our server in order to get our drink orders in.
Multiple rounds of the buffet: ribs, deep fried shrimp, prime rib, italian bread and mashed potatoes all quite good. Cannoli was “meh”, but I was very spoiled with the cannoli at Vito’s in Pacific Grove. Overall, pretty good for a buffet and not too badly over priced.
Awesome-O-Meter: 3 Awesomes. All in all, a fairly standard casino experience. Good amount of fun themed machines and I scored big on the free play when I signed up for the players club. Good, tasty food selection at the buffet, though I wasn’t impressed with the service.
