Last day of greyhound racing today. They want to put a hotel where the racetrack is.

I went to the Dog races Friday night and the club house was packed. I went to the buffet before going upstairs to the Dog races and it was pretty awful. The buffet was dead with no more then 10 or 15 people in it which should of been a warning to us. The food on the buffet was cold and had been sitting out for hours. This buffet is in trouble and loosing money big time. I think times are slow for this whole casino in general. I'm not saying they are not making money on weekends but I think the casino is lucky to break even during the week.

They do a good business in the casino on the weekends and often have a fair crowd on the weekday evenings too. Sunday seems to be relatively dead.

The buffet is usually not bad but the place has all of the ambiance of a high school cafeteria! Amerstar buffet is usually better, both food wise and atmosphere.

--Why capitalize the word "Dog"?
--"club house" should be one word.
--"no more then" should be "no more than".
--"should of" should be "should have".
--"loosing" should be "losing".

No one can take the criticisms of an uneducated charlatan seriously.
--The fact that you are reviewing a buffet in Council Bluffs is idiotic. I'm sorry that the buffet didn't measure up to the Bellagio in Las Vegas, but what did you expect? It's Council Bluffs after all.

Tell you what I agree with you for the most part. I think Dog could be capitalized in this case. I also think if they can review one of those mangy tater tot serving food trucks here it sure shouldn't be out of line to mention a huge casino buffet serving a 100 different foods. :shock:

Did you cater this buffet yourself or something? It seems like your taking a casual commentary on a mediocre buffet awfully personally.
