Tunica is a town in Tunica County, Mississippi, near the Mississippi River. Until the early 1990s when casino gambling was introduced in the area, Tunica had been one of the poorest places in the country. Since 1990, the town became known as the location of a number of casinos near the Mississippi River. The currently existing casinos are now part of Tunica Resorts, located just outside the Tunica downtown. The Tunica Museum is a history museum founded in 1997 and great place to learn about the town past. Certain attractions may be temporarily closed or require advance reservations. Some restaurants are currently offering pickup only. Hours/availability may have changed.

The Blue and White is a tiny, narrow diner in Tunica, Mississippi that looks like it is in a time warp and has been transported from the early 20’s, with blue and white tiles, blue chairs and white formica tables. The diner was originally established in 1924 on Route 61 in downtown Tunica, near the railroad station. In its early days, the diner included a tobacco and newsstand, a service station, a Greyhound bus stop and a full-service restaurant. The kitchen still produces the kind of food the old diner offered - a true Southern style cooking with such old-time favorites as Chicken Livers with Gravy, Country Style Steak and Catfish Creole.
