Vegas Casino buffets

Despite all the wonderful restaurants in town, buffets are still popular, both with locals and visitors.  Every casino-resort (except the Venetian/Palazzo) has one.  For the most part, the selections are the same from place to place. The only one really offering something different (apart from Rio’s second, seafood-only buffet) is at the Paris, where you’ll find a number of “French” items not available elsewhere.  Quality varies, of course, but not as much as you’d think.

 

The problem with buffets is that it takes a lot of willpower not to overeat.  There are good alternatives for about the same price, if you can’t stand the temptation and/or want table service.  At the Paris, try one of my favorite places for lunch, Mon Ami GabiBellagio and Wynn both have outstanding cafes.

 

Still the buffets are the best bargains.  As locals, we get such good deals at Station Casinos that it’s often cheaper than eating at home.  We’re also fond of the small buffet at Palms, since the casino frequently lures us in by offering gifts.

    Well, a Buffet is not a Buffet is not a Buffet. I mean, they are all different. The Palms is small and always has a number of Mediterranean dishes (mostly Lebanese), the Red Rock is the best of Station Casinos buffets.As for non buffet meals, don\’t forget the Grand Cafe\’s at the Palazzo and the Venetian. They are run by the Cheese Cake Factory and serve excellent food.Personally I wouldn\’t want to eat at the Paris buffet every day. All that French food gets somewhat boring after a while.
