Las Vegas Buffet Guide

The Las Vegas Buffet is an institution. Nearly every resort and casino has its own version of the tour of cuisine known as the buffet. Serving numerous dishes, from soups, salads, and seafood, to international affairs, a trip to Las Vegas seems incomplete without visiting an all-you-can-eat buffet. I recently traveled to Sin City with my boss, in order to suss out which buffets are worth the time and which ones are worth skipping. We begin on a Sunday, with brunch, but for the majority of our stay we focus on breakfast, with some spill over into lunch. To rate the buffets, we utilize a table of 10 categories: Food, Service, Ambiance, Selection, Value, Beverages, Wait, Location/Access, Price, and an Overall rating. Each category is worth 10 points. The Total Rating is the sum of these categories. So let’s get on with the show!
