Las Vegas was once known as the home of the all-you-can-eat buffet, but the city has refined the buffet experience in recent years. While most buffets are no longer considered cheap, the good news is that the quality of food has improved significantly.
Wicked Spoon at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas not only serves an impressive array of high-end dishes, it also provides individually sized serving portions. This innovation was a welcome move away from big vats of food with communal serving spoons, and the upscale food selections are a big crowd pleaser.
The Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace is another buffet that emphasizes quality--and they prepare 500 dishes daily. Bacchanal offers lobster, caviar and an assortment of seafood like crab, scallops and oysters, among many other dishes.
One thing that hasn’t changed at the buffet is the line, but lines move quickly, so you’ll be inside sooner than you think. Some buffets offer a line pass for an additional fee. If you sign up for the casino’s frequent player card, you may get additional discounts at the buffet and other restaurants.
While buffets aren’t the incredibly cheap option they once were, you can find some buffet deals off the Strip and in Downtown Las Vegas. Breakfast is generally the least expensive meal of the day, regardless of the buffet you choose.
