Best Buffets in Las Vegas

From budget-friendly options to luxury eats: Las Vegas' 10 best buffets


Las Vegas buffets were once an easy way to get impressively large amounts of inexpensive food. While you can still find buffets that fit that bill, options have expanded to include buffets that offer caviar, lobster and similar gourmet dishes. No matter which type of buffet is right for you, they all offer a tremendous value for either the quantity or the quality of food – or both.

At the posher buffets, guests will find single serving sizes, live action cooking, dishes cooked to order and beverage packages for wine and beer. Wicked Spoon at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas offers all that and an impressive array of international dishes. Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars is perhaps the most upscale buffet in town, boasting a recent renovation and a wide selection of high-end options.

Although buffets may not always be a low-cost alternative, those who are looking for a bargain instead of a splurge will still some solid choices. The South Point’s Garden Buffet has a well-rounded selection of dishes at very reasonable prices.

Breakfast is generally the least expensive meal of the day, regardless of which buffet you choose. Sign up for a player’s card to get the best possible prices.
