Horseshoe Casino Council Bluffs Review

Horseshoe Council Bluffs is right next door to the Mid-America Center in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The casino itself spans 68,000 square feet and holds over 1600 slots and video poker machines, 54 table games, and a poker room with 18 tables of head to head action 24 hours a day. There are three restaurants in the casino and another in the attached Hilton Garden Inn Hotel. For fine dining try Jack Binion's Steak House or to sample various cuisine try the Village Square Buffet. JB's Cafe is open 24 hours so ride that streak as long as you want and fuel up when you are ready. There is an RV park and Greyhound track right next door. Although there are no meeting facilities on the premises, the accomodations are more than satisfactory and Mid-America Center can handle any sized event.
