    Re: best buffet in vegas?

    Lemme start by pointing out that Las Vegas hospitals are the last places next to the Clark County Jail that you want to visit when in Las Vegas, so much so I recommend everyone to get a private air ambulance card if you think you might spend a little time in one of the local hospitals...

    The last place I would go to for the buffet in Las Vegas has to be the Aladdin Hotel and Casino, I won't go into all of the gory details, but something there poisoned me so badly I was almost considering visiting the abovementioned sh*thole hospitals for a double bag of I.V.'s in each arm just so I could make my flight out that night.

    For the price, its hard to beat the Palms Buffet. The only ones I'd avoid are the buffets at the Sahara (worst ever) and Frizgerald's (downtown).
    The buffets at Main Street Station and Gold Nugget are also good if you're not interested in spending a fortune.

    Straight up, that's what i'm talking about. Spend $20 on a buffet tops and eat for the entire day. Shit, don't forget to bring ziplocks or sew a few extra pockets into your coats .

    Sounds like a good plan to me.

    I haven't done very many buffets in Vegas, but the Alladin was quite good and I believe had a Middle Eastern station. I'm not a vegetarian, but there are many vegetarian dishes I enjoy.

Some people think the Atkins diet is "healthy," other vegetarian, high-carb/low fat and for me, "healthy" is whole grain/low sugar, but asking for brown rice at a buffet in vegas will probably get me thrown in the pokey. ;)

    I think I went here before Defcon 12 to help pick out a place that had a good price and good reviews from "Las Vegas Locals"

    From there, I compared rating to price, and found a great deal with Ports O' Call Buffet in Gold Coast 702-367-7111

    I will be going there again for Breakfast this year-- probably for the breakfast-end, lunch begin to save money and get more variety.

    I'll probably also get a list of other good values, and try them if I have time.

    It was coparable to the Rio but much cheaper (at least for bunch.) The breakfast run had the most healthy food, with lots of fresh fruits, and alternate choices for omlettes. You could request yolk free omlettes I think- memory is hazy here.

    Some info I gathered on saving money and maximizing your selections:
    1) pick an arrival time that is just before the end of one shift and the beginning of the next. This sometimes allows you to pay "breakfast buffet prices " for a breakfast buffet *then* lunch buffet when they change it, or pay for a lunch buffet and get a lunch and dinner buffet selection.

    2) Review the sites you want to visit on multiple review pages and sites.

    3) Weigh cost savings against time to transport, and cost of transport. (Some Locals in Las Vegas sometimes say, "It takes 30 minutes to get from anywhere in Las Vegas to Anywhere else in Las Vegas." Those trips can cost a lot by cab.

    4) If you find out someone is going to be going out to a buffet and they have room in their car, carpool. Offer to pay some money towards gas-- it will be wayyy cheaper than a taxi, and more convienient than a bus.

    Buffet /= Healthy.

    Actually you will find most of them have very passable salad bars but the main attraction at most of them is the protien and desserts.

    Personally I've always thought the Bellagio was top notch. I enjoyed it more than Rio in years passed. Mandolay bay wasn't very good either.

    It's been a while since I went to the Main Street Station buffet, but I've been there a few times. All I really remember is that they had a good selection, and I loved the food.

    I ate at the Tropicana Buffet and it was pretty poor, rather small..

    The only nice thing they had was a pasta chef, who would make the pasta of your choice, with the sauce of your choice (vegetarian marinara, tomato meat sauce, alfredo sauce) and then any vegetables or meat (mushrooms, shrimp)..

    Ive heard the MGM is good, the line is always a good 20 minutes around lunch or dinner time.
