Best buffet in Vegas these days?

Njchicaa Dec 10, 2012 06:05 PM

I'm totally NOT a buffet person for various reasons but my husband wants to hit the buffet at the Bellagio as he's heard that is the best.

Is it? Is there a better one? Is there a great one without a huge wait?

    We aren't buffet fans either, but here is a previous thread on the subject. Not much has changed with the exception of the new buffet at Caesar's Palace.

    Here's a link on Bacchanal Buffet - which has been getting mixed reviews on the board after a great opening....

    As for the wait, timing is everything if you go at peak dining hours you can expect to wait at virtually any buffet.

      When are you going? If it's in the next couple of weeks there probably won't be much waiting anywhere. No wait at any time during lunch today at Caesar's (as opposed to the hours long wait chronicled by others recently).

        Studio B at the M Resort is still solid with their lunch buffet. No wonder, so many locals and visitors go out of their way beyond the strip. The wait was 2 hours (just after Christmas)unless you are a high roller with a special Line Pass. Variety includes Mediterranean, Spanish, American, Japanese, Chinese, Filipino.
        $15.99 includes unlimited Beer and wine. Good deal, isn't it?

          is the food edible?

            Absolutely!

              Much more than edible--it's very good. But as one of the other Chowhounds points out there's two types of buffet food--cafeteria buffet and restaurant buffet. Studio B is very good but it's more comfort food and less fine dining. On the other hand, Wynn, Bellagio and Aria are more innovative and trend towards fine dining. Caesar's is sort of in the middle, and probably more towards the comfort food (though of various stripes), though the quality is unquestionably very high.

            The buffet at the Wynn is pretty great. Better than Bellagio, imo.
