Las Vegas Top 10 Best Buffets of 2015


Heading to Las Vegas and trying to figure out which buffet to go to?  Here’s our Las Vegas top 10 best buffets of 2015!  For the list, we’ve considered everything from price, to quality and variety of food!  Which Las Vegas buffet is your favorite?

1. Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace Las Vegas

After a $17 million renovation in 2012, Caesar’s Palace buffet soon set the standard for all other buffets after it.  The glamorous buffet inspired grand, Roman-style feasting, yet set in a chic interior.  Bacchanal has now celebrated its anniversary with even more dishes than ever, including varieties of seafood (hot & cold crab legs, ceviche, clams, oysters, shrimp, and so on), multiple seasonal cheeses, soups, and more than 100 pastries.  It even has small stations that let you design many of your own dishes!  If you don’t want to spend a bunch of money trying foreign cuisine you may not enjoy, Bacchanal has several dishes inspired by cultures all over the world you can experience without breaking the bank.  This by far, is one of the best buffets in Vegas to date.  Be aware, the lineups are insane for this buffet.  However, they have a kiosk that prints out a ticket with an entrance time so that instead of waiting in line, you can explore Las Vegas.

2. The Buffet at the Wynn Las Vegas

The Buffet at Wynn is a feast in every sense.  This is where you can enjoy variety of flavors from all over the world in one experience.  It has a wide variety of choices, for example, king crab legs, sushi, a carving station, and plenty of desserts.  Even vegetarians go crazy for this place!  Aside from all the food, your dining experience will surely be memorable here.  This seating area is beautiful, particularly in the garden/atrium where it includes fresh flowers, so it makes for a pleasant and aromatic dining experience.

3. The Buffet at the Bellagio Las Vegas

The Buffet at the Bellagio is just plain fabulous!  You will be overwhelmed with both the choices of food and the excellence of its preparation.  The selections are awesome either for vegetarian or meat eaters.  There’s an excellent assortment of sushi, cones, and more for you lovers of Japanese food!  This place is a classic and has maintained an unbelievable level of upkeep.  Oh yeah, if you’re up early enough for breakfast and want a buffet, the Bellagio is a must!

4. The Buffet at Aria Resort & Casino

So much food, so much seafood, different multi culture cuisine.  If you decide to stop here for the buffet, make sure you go with an empty stomach and you will enjoy it for sure.  The price compared to most buffets in Vegas shouldn’t break your budget, with lunch starting at $23.99 and dinner at $39.99.  They also have an unlimited beverage option for bottomless mimosas, bloody mary, sangria, and spritzer wines for an additional $12.99.  If you are feeling adventurous and like to try new things, this may just be the buffet for you.

5. M Resort Studio B Buffet

Whatta buffet!  If this was on the Strip, it would definitely be ranked first or second.  It is about 15 minutes south of McCarron Airport off is I-15, but worth the drive if you want a very good buffet experience.  With over 200 items to choose from, it has just about everything you could think of to eat.  The carving stations feature beef and lamb and offers from Asian, Mediterranean, Italian, vegetarian, and seafood for days!  If you have time, or want to treat yourself to a great meal, the StudioB buffet is well worth it.  One of the “must do’s” when visiting Las Vegas.


6. Sterling Brunch Buffet at Bally’s Las Vegas

If this was cheaper, this would definitely top the list!  You can’t call yourself a true brunch lover until you’ve been to Sterling Brunch. A little pricier than other buffets around, but definitely worth the money.  At $85 a pop, come get your endless caviar, filet mignon, lobster tails, sashimi, made to order omelets, oysters and more. Oh, and don’t forget the bottomless Perrier-Jouet Sham-Pag-nuh (champagne).  Truly the brunch of a lifetime.  In a city known for stiff competition for Sunday Brunch, there isn’t one that comes close to Sterling Brunch.  Need I say more?  This one’s definitely worth trying, at least once.

7. Le Village Buffet at Paris Las Vegas

Great buffet for half the price of the Wynn and Bellagio buffets!  If you’re looking for a buffet on the strip that offers different experience in both food and presentation, definitely try the buffet at Paris.  The ambiance here sets Le Village apart from other contemporary buffets.  Besides offering the more traditional stuff you’ll see at every buffet, Le Village has French inspired food, (obviously).  For those of you with a sweet tooth, there’s a crepe station, but be forewarned, the crepe line can get pretty long.  If there’s an opening, it might be smart to grab one real quick!  Here’s a quick tip, make a reservation on and skip the lineup!

8. Wicked Spoon Buffet at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas

Sadly, this buffet has seen better days.  The quality has gone down a little bit, but still deserves a spot on our top 10 list.  This buffet has most of the things we’ve come to expect from a Vegas Buffet.  The options come endless with crab legs, mussels, oysters, chocolate heath bar covered strawberries, and gelato!  If you’re looking at a buffet where you don’t want to over indulge yourself, this may be your type of buffet as most food is served in individual serving dishes so it’s easy to have a nice portion without having the big troughs of food.  The main difference between the Wicked Spoon compared to other buffets.  They may not be the largest buffet in Vegas, but one of the best if you’re more into quality than quantity.  Definitely worth a visit!

9. Carnival World Buffet at Rio Las Vegas

One of the largest buffets in the world with the most variety you’ve ever seen, this buffet continues to be outstanding.  If you’re doing the 24 hour buffet pass or not, you should just have to go here!  Huge selection.  Many varieties.  They offer a large variety of food, including brisket, BBQ chicken, ribs, pho and a carving station that includes turkey, glazed ham, pot roast and so on.  If you decide to stop in, don’t forget to end with some gelato and cheesecake bites!

10. Cravings Buffet at Mirage Las Vegas

Very fun buffet!  If you use MyVegas, you may be able to snag a great deal on this as well for a 2 for 1 deal so it’s half the price.  The buffet also offers unlimited drinks, which is a plus.  Their amazing drink station with many, many selections comes with so many selections it would even suit the pickiest person.  Overall, this buffet may not be the fanciest, but it has a few stellar options!

Honorable Mentions: The Buffet of Buffets at Caesars Entertainment Las Vegas Resorts & Casinos

If you are looking for a great deal and have the time, the Buffet of Buffets is for you. This is a great option, if you feel like pigging out on buffets. It includes multiple buffets located in multiple hotels including Rio, Paris, Planet Hollywood, and other Caesar Entertainment hotels (be sure to use your Total Rewards to get a discount!). The trick is to squeeze in as many meals as possible within 24 hours. Though, the downside is that you may need to accommodate your activities around this, it is seriously the best deal in town for buffets.

Insider Tips
Waiting in Line: Buffet lines can get long so going early or late then the popular times is a way to reduce your wait. Las Vegas tends to be a late-night crowd so going early for brunch can often make a big difference. You can also try to get a line-pass to get in front as a comp if you gamble enough, or are a valued hotel guest. Finally, tipping the hostess has been known to get people in early 🙂

Saving Money: If you go towards the end of the lunch schedule, you can sometimes stay for dinner too and will just pay lunch prices for the more expensive dinner buffets (depends on hotel policy). Going midweek will get you the lowest buffet prices. In addition, you can find great deals (50 percent off or more) if you go to a breakfast buffet instead of dinner or lunch – of course, the selection will be more limited.

Las Vegas Top 10 Kids Activities & Attractions


As a child, my parents brought me to Las Vegas several times for family vacations.   You might hear things like Las Vegas isn’t for children, or there’s nothing for kids to do in Las Vegas so leave them at home.  I can tell you that some of my best childhood memories are from our Vegas trips.  Whether just exploring and checking out sites like the Mirage Volcano, or winning plush dolls at Circus Circus, there is definitely many things for kids to do, and if you plan your trip well, they’ll have just as much fun as you.  Here are our top 10 kids activities in Las Vegas.

1. Adventuredome

An entire 5-acre indoor theme park devoted to the underage crowd exists on the Las Vegas strip in the Circus Circus Hotel & Casino.  No matter what the weather you can spend a fun-filled family day riding the corkscrew Canyon Blaster, swinging in the large Sand Pirates ship, spinning on the Disk’O, watching one of multiple 4-D movies, playing laser tag, and more.  With rides ranging from toddler joy to premium thrill, there is something for everyone.   Each ride can be purchased individually or you can buy an all-day pass for unlimited access to everything, $27.95 for adults, $16.95 for children 33-47” tall, and free for those under 33” with a paying adult.

2. Excalibur Midway/Circus Circus Midway/Coney Island Emporium

The most popular arcade and carnival-type attractions are displayed together because they are all similar barrels of fun for the little ones.  Try your hand at popping balloons, competing with your child in a race, trying to get the ping pong ball in the glass, and more to build up your stock of stuffed animals and toys- kid favorites!  Adults and children alike can also play arcade games to earn tickets toward prize redemption.  Each game is priced individually, but some are so easy to win there’s no way you’re walking away empty handed!

3. Las Vegas Strip Attractions

There are many things for kids to do on the Las Vegas Strip.  From the massive hotels they can explore, to the free attractions they can see, there’s something for kid’s of all ages to keep them occupied.  A few of the better ones for kids would include the Bellagio Fountains, the Volcano at the Mirage, the Sirens of TI, and of course the Wildlife Habitat at the Flamingo.  Best part of all, all these activities are absolutely free!

4. Afternoon comedy shows- Mac King Comedy Show/Popovich Comedy Pet Theater – use promo code MYCV50 for 50% off tickets

What better place to take your children than afternoon shows designed for family friendliness?  Mac King contains a mix of comedy and magic and is a top-rated magician by many sources.  He will awe your family as he swallows goldfish and performs the most amazing magic tricks with no evidence of foul play.  What child doesn’t love animals?  The Popovich Comedy Pet Theater at the Miracle Mile Shops is full of rescued dogs and cats that are trained to do tricks.  Not only does your family get to witness the cutest show in Las Vegas, they are also contributing to the well-being of abandoned animals.

5. Tournament of Kings

Enjoy dinner and a show in one swoop while cheering for your assigned knight.  Dinner includes tomato soup, a whole chicken, broccoli, potatoes, and a pastry all without the use of silverware!  Why?  Because there was no silverware in medieval times- but apparently unlimited Pepsi was the drink of choice.  Your family will sit in one of the designated countries and while enjoying your meal you will watch the games unfold in the arena before you.  With live horses, medieval details, and the must-have villain, this action packed show keeps your children mesmerized.

6. Secret Garden & Dolphin Habitat

The entire family can enjoy the serene atmosphere of Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat located on the Mirage Hotel & Casino property.  Greet the dolphins as you walk in to the open walkways surrounded by pools and lush greenery that is the Dolphin Habitat.  Watch them swim around, do jumps, and even witness a dolphin training session.  Take the ramp down below to see the dolphins in action under water and capture the most amazing photos.  When you’re ready for a change, move along to the back where you can find the Secret Garden complete with a sanctuary of wild cats such as white tigers and leopards, almost close enough to touch.  Admission is $19.95 for adults, $14.95 for children 4-12, and free for children 3 and under.

7. Shark Reef

Experience 1.6 million gallons of natural wonders in the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.  In addition to the sea of sharks, you and your family can also witness other sea creatures such as the endangered sea turtle, jellyfish, and the rare golden crocodile.  There are a total of over 2,000 animals housed in this attraction for all ages to experience and learn.  Who knew education could be so fun?  Adult admission is $18, children 5-12 are $12, and children 4 and under are free.

8. M&M World

With 4 stories of amazing M&M color and every type of M&M themed memorabilia imaginable, your kids won’t stop talking about their trip to the fascinating M&M World conveniently located on the Las Vegas Strip.  Take a free picture with an M&M right outside the store, even with a different color each day!  The second floor features a rainbow wall of chocolate goodness featuring every color of M&M imaginable all sold by the pound.  Once you get to the 3rd floor, not only can you make your own personalized M&M’s, but you can also see the free 3-D movie “I Left My M in Vegas” featuring Red and Yellow as they desperately search for Red’s lost “M” logo.  No matter what your purpose, to shop or not, the store is an attraction in itself and can’t be missed.

9. Coca-Cola Store

Who doesn’t love anything Coca Cola?  Outfitted with a larger than life 2-story Coke bottle for an entrance, you walk into the world of Coca-Cola featuring logo merchandise everywhere.  From home goods to apparel, trinkets to bottle skins, there is definitely something for everyone to take home as a souvenir.  Make your way up to the Coca Cola bar to experience Coca-Cola drinks and floats from around the world or just to pick up your favorite cold, refreshing Coke.  If you get lucky, you may have the opportunity to get your photo taken with the Coca-Cola bear himself!

10. Las Vegas Thrill Rides at the Stratosphere

For the older children in your pack who are into thrills and action, check out the top of the Stratosphere tower.  You not only get a gorgeous, complete view of the Las Vegas strip, but you can partake in death-defying rides that fling, spin, and drop you over the edge of the tallest tower in the west.  There are various packages available depending on how much thrill you can take that vary from $22 for one ride to $34 for an all-day pass.  This would be much higher on the list if it weren’t for the age limitation.

Bonus. Wet ‘n’ Wild

While the resort pool areas of the hotels in Las Vegas are much better than your average hotel pool, if you are looking for even more water-filled thrills than what your hotel has to offer, Wet ‘n’ Wild is a great place to take your family for the day.  It is a brand new water park with 25 rides and attractions located just 10 miles west of the strip.  With warmer than average temperatures year-round and very little rain, this is a great spot for most vacations.  This would be near the top of the list but due the location, it’s not readily accessible by many families on vacation.
