Buffet with BBQ?

I'm going back to Vegas in a month or so, and I am looking for a buffet that does BBQ-style food (ribs, brisket, mac & cheese, that sort of thing). I know that Arizona Charlie's in Boulder has a "BBQ Night" at its buffet for about $10. However, I have heard quite a range of opinions about the food at AC's. Can anyone recommend a better one?

I'm not looking for just a BBQ restaurant - I know about places like PBR, for example; I want to know about buffets.

    Texas Station's main draw used to be its barbecue. Then they took it away. Then they brought it back circa 2010 on Saturdays. I just checked the website and it implies that pulled pork and spare ribs are always available, but I don't know if they still have a special barbecue night on Saturdays and, if so, what the offerings are. At one time, Texas Station had one of the better inexpensive buffets in town, but it went south about ten years ago. I haven't eaten there in this millenium. I hope some other hounds can help you more.

      You are right about Texas Buffet being good in the past. It's been about six years since I've been there but it was far from being edible.

      There are no specialty buffet nights at Texas Station,but according to Eater - Las Vegas, the smoker is back:

          Actually, I was specifically looking for a buffet, or some other "all you can eat"-style restaurant. Considering the BBQ stations I came across at some of the buffets I did go to, I think I'll stick to places with rodizio (e.g. Via Brazil, Fogo de Chao) for my "all you can meat" fix.
