Paula Deen’s Empire Continues to Grow

9 Jul

Doesn’t this gal have enough money by now?

Just when you think the Paula Deen franchise has totally peaked out, Harrah’s Casino in Tunica, MS has announced a partnership with the current Queen of Down Home Cuisine. Paula’s Buffet will offer up all the country cooking that has made Miss Paula a fixture on the Food Network and essentially the “Oprah” of the Dixie kitchen.  

According to Harrah’s, Paula’s Buffet features six mouth-watering stations:
Granny Paul’s Garden – A full salad bar featuring some of Paula’s favorite salads and signature “Skillet Cornbread.” Uncle Bubba’s Oyster House – Features menu items served at Bubba’s restaurant in Savannah, including the signature “Char Grilled Oysters.” Hoe Cake & Biscuit Station – Cooked all day long served with butter and syrup if desired. Lady & Son’s – Features southern comfort foods such as Paula’s famous Fried Chicken, Collard Greens and Lady’s Cheesy Mac. Captain Michael’s Smokehouse – Features an assortment of meat prepared using Paula’s rubs smoked daily, BBQ pulled pork, smoked sausage and ribs. Little Jack’s Corner – A wide array of desserts featuring Paula’s famous Gooey Butter Cake, Grandmother Paul’s Sour Cream Pound Cake, peach cobbler and creamy hand dipped ice cream.

Sounds pretty darn tasty — anyone out there tried it yet? Don’t expect cozy atmosphere … the joint boasts seating for whopping 560 diners.
