Tribes Deliver Dining Riches and a Wealth of Entertainment
The old and the new coexist seamlessly in Pauma Valley. The local Luiseño Bands still engage in traditional events, but have also introduced world-class entertainment venues, smart dining, and spirited eateries and bars.
The area’s tribal casinos offer epicurean experiences that range from Vegas-inspired all-you-can-eat buffets to five-star fine dining, and everything in between.
With eight restaurants including well-established foodie favorites such as Pink’s Hot Dogs and Earl of Sandwich, the Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians–owned Harrah’s Resort Southern California also has bragging rights for fine dining at Fiore, an award-winning steak and seafood restaurant.
The Grove Buffet at Casino Pauma, popular with locals, peppers its menu with servings of organic homegrown selections. Pala Casino’s coolest new encounter, the underground Wine Cave, is a dining and entertainment enclave featuring a subterranean wine-tasting bar with more than 480 labels dating back to 1994.
The Pauma Valley concert scene includes venues like the new Events Center at Harrah’s, which accommodates up to 2,300 concertgoers. Featuring comedy greats such as George Lopez and legendary artists such as Willie Nelson, plus the latest fan raves, Harrah’s show lineup, complemented by concerts hosted by Pala and Pauma casinos, makes for rocking nights and good times in Pauma Valley.
Factor in the upscale bar scene, Pauma’s Red Parrot Lounge, Pala’s Center Bar, and Harrah’s newest ultra lounges, Spiked and Corked, for top-notch local renditions of the quintessential Vegas lounge experience.
