are ther any good buffets in calgary that are not exclusively oriental?
Bolero & Gaucho. Both Brazilian BBQs on MacLeod Trail. The serves will come to your table with various kinds of meat but the rest of the food is buffet style.
The Grey Eagle casino also has different themed buffets on most (if not every) night.
A number of hotels have weekend brunch buffets. There are also several Indian buffets, some daily, some weekends.
Several of the Sunterra Market locations have a wide variety of dishes available at different stations. Although those are pay for what you get, not one price for everything, more of a cafeteria style.
