AYCE meat places in Palo Alto down to Saratoga

Have a Guys Night Out coming up where we usually hit an ayce eat place. We've done Fogo de Chao, Pampas and BQ Korean BBQ in the past. The default right now is Pampas, which I'm lukewarm on... Any suggestions? I'd love Korean BBQ but of higher quality than BQ, which was decent but not great. Also open to other meat heavy ayce ideas! Thanks.

  1. You'd probably not want the Mongolian BBQ places, which are pretty low quality, but they're out there.

    What about AYCE indian buffets? There are some dinner ones, but I'd have to dig up what's still going. P2I used to have some dinner nights, and Mayuri.

    Agree about Pampas lukewarm.

    1. Not a whole lot of options. Pampas is about as good as you're gonna get. I haven't been to BeQue in ages, but yeah, it was pretty meh.

      YakiniQ down in San Jose (a bit out of your way) is the current best all you can eat Korean BBQ, but that isn't saying that much. Still that's where me and the boys (we're Korean American meat fiends) go for AYCE Korean BBQ.
