Stuck in the middle A review of Tropicana Express
I didn't stay in the rooms here but I did spend my first night in the casino. The band at the bar was great. They were lively and really had the crowd going. It was the only casino that I went to during my weekend trip that had a cocktail waitress who actuall tended to the slot players (and was super sweet) The slots payed well and the lower bar has $1.50 beers- not the best beer, but it's beer. However, my last day in Vegas, a friend and myself went to the restraunt with the train cars before we got on the road. We both ordered french-dips and fries. It was horrible! The meat tasted like it had been sitting out for hours so to hide the taste, they saturated it in salt. We told the waitress and she wasn't happy but she tried to be pleasant. I would suggest playing, dancing, and drinking at the Ramada- but dont eat there....it is also adjacent to the rest of the casinos, so unless you want a little stroll- you might wanna find something on the river's side.
