TEMECULA, Calif. – (Dec. 12, 2017) – Pechanga Resort & Casino enters the waters of the Southern California casino lobster wars with its all new Lobster & Seafood Extravaganza on Thursdays beginning January 11, 2018. For $44.99, Pechanga Buffet guests can enjoy their fill of all you can eat, one-and-one-quarter pound whole Maine lobster done in an East Coast lobster bake style with roasted potatoes and corn on the cob. From 4 p.m. to close at 10 p.m., diners receive a piping hot lobster bake bag containing the just-cooked lobster (flown in from Maine the night before) and fixings. Guests can also pile high the enhanced buffet seafood selections from the upgraded sushi station, a whole-salmon carving station, fresh and baked oyster station, snow crab, fish tacos, ceviche, calamari, Dungeness crab, clam chowder, steamed shrimp and much more.
The Pechanga Buffet also features many international dining stations with food dishes from Italy, China, Korea, Mexico and others. It may be tough with the enticement of fresh Maine lobster, but Pechanga Buffet guests may want to leave a little room for a stop at the make-your-own sundae bar or the expansive dessert bar filled with freshly baked cookies, pies, cakes, tarts and more sweet treats made at the Pechanga Bakery.
Adults and children three to 11 on Thursdays starting January 11 are $44.99 during dinner hours from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Kids two and under are free. Pechanga Club members receive discounts at the Pechanga Buffet including on Lobster & Seafood Extravaganza Thursdays. Silver members receive $3 off, Gold members receive $6, Platinum members receive $9 off and Red card members receive $12 off.
Pechanga sources the lobsters from ecologically responsible purveyors in Maine. Their products are fully inspected and certified. Fisheries they work with use sustainable methods and practices. The lobsters coming to Pechanga are caught one day, refrigerated, packaged, and shipped live across the country where they land at LAX overnight. They are immediately put onto a delivery truck and brought to Pechanga in Temecula. Casino buffet chefs cook small batches at a time and remaining lobsters are put into tanks.
