Top 10 Las Vegas Buffets you shouldn’t miss
Along with the epic parties, luxurious casinos and hotels, and top-notch shows, a visit to a meal (or three) Las Vegas buffet is required to complete your trip. These all-you-can-eat spots are a quintessential part of experiencing the city. Here’s a guide to the 10 best buffets in Las Vegas.
- The Buffet at Bellagio. Bellagio is one of Sin City’s most luxe resorts, so it should come as no surprise that it offers a buffet to match. It’s the only buffet that has an exclusive chef’s table, allowing guests to experience custom offerings from the executive chef. The buffet offers gourmet menu on Fridays and Saturdays with a decadent spread featuring fine caviar, freshly rolled sushi and house-made desserts. The weekend champagne brunch allows guests unlimited refills on Bloody Marys, margaritas, sparkling wine, or beer.
- The Wicked Spoon Buffet. Located in the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, this buffet serves reasonable portions of everything, making it an almost tapas-like experience in a city where excess is the pastime. Don’t miss the “angry” mac and cheese, which offers a spicy, smoky kick. Save room for the impressive dessert options, where a gelato bar serves up a variety of unique flavors, like salted caramel peanut.
- Studio B Buffet. This offering from The M Resort emphasizes freshness. More than 200 different items are prepared in-house daily, including barbecue, Asian, Mexican, Italian and seafood dishes. Speaking of seafood, it really shines on the weekends, when the buffet puts a special emphasis on lobster, sushi, crab legs, and more.
- Carnival World and Seafood Buffet. Found at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, this buffet is all about the seafood. By paying an extra $15, you can access an additional 70-plus seafood dishes, such as snow crab legs, shrimp, freshly shucked oysters, and lobster. Other cuisines are available too, like pizza, barbecue, pasta, cakes, pastries, and nine flavors of gelato.
- Le Village Buffet. This Paris Las Vegas buffet is indeed decorated to look like a French village. It’s the only buffet that allows diners to make reservations via OpenTable, so you can bypass the undoubtedly long line. Don’t miss the prime rib, truffle macaroni and cheese, fresh crepes with customized fillings, and the popular vanilla bean crème brulee.
- Bacchanal Buffet, Caesar’s Palace. Named Best Buffet multiple times by USA Today, this $100 million buffet is centered around live action food preparations courtesy of the buffet’s chefs. Some can’t-miss dishes include the smoked pork belly smothered in a cranberry demi-glaze, roasted South Carolina shrimp and grits, and the mini watermelon and feta salad.
- The Buffet at Wynn. Interesting dishes, and plenty of them, mark this buffet. From tacos made fresh on a rotating griddle, to Frank Sinatra’s family recipe spaghetti and meatballs, there is something for every taste. It all happens inside a dining room that feels like an upscale sit-down restaurant, and truly stands out as one of the best Las Vegas has to offer.
- The Buffet at Aria. How many buffets can claim they offer a tandoor oven? Aria can, turning out Indian specialties like naan on a daily basis. The other food stations are interesting too – expect a diner station offering American comfort food like spiced meat loaf and freshly mashed potatoes; a carvery offering grilled, slow-roasted, and smoked meats; and a Mediterranean station specializing in eats like falafel, hummus, and spanakopita.
- Cravings at The Mirage. Modern ambiance meets international cuisine here. Eleven food stations showcasing Italian, Chinese, Latin, and American treats can satisfy virtually any, well, craving. It even gives you the option of building your own charcuterie board, with a selection of meats and cheeses.
- Breakfast/Brunch Buffet at Monte Carlo. Start your weekend morning the right way with this buffet, where you can find virtually any breakfast food your heart desires. Eggs, crepes, French toast, and fresh fruit are all a part of this feast, as is the option of bottomless champagne.
