Donna and I just returned from a gambling trip to "the boats" in Shreveport. Actually, we only visited the Eldorado. It was a good trip. We broke about even (Donna won, I lost), enjoyed some good food, and stopped in to see my brother and his wife on the return trip.
On our arrival, we headed straight to Athena Greek and Lebanese Grill on Line Avenue in Shreveport. We've been eating here for years. Donna had the gyro salad while I had the gyro plate. We love that tender gyro meat.
We spent 3 nights at the Eldorado. We've always enjoyed being able to park the truck and just leave it for a few days. Although we had free food offers at the Eldorado, we did walk down the street one day to enjoy lunch at the Blind Tiger. Donna had some sort of salad again, while I indulged in a shrimp Po-boy sandwich. They do serve a good Po-boy.
The rest of the time, we just stayed at the Eldorado. We enjoy the relaxed nature of staying in a casino. You can go downstairs and gamble whenever you want, then return to your room for a nap. We had their buffet (comped) and a meal or two in the Sportsman's Cafe (also comped). I normally don't care for buffets, but when they are free, I can find something to my liking. Most buffet foot is not tasty to me, but I do like the red velvet cake the Eldorado has on their buffet.
We left Shreveport early one morning on our return trip. We took what I call the "northern route", which loops to the north of the Metroplex, as my brother lives in the far north part of Ft. Worth. We arrived at his house about noon, and enjoyed a 2 day visit with him and his wife.
