    Which LV buffet (Strip, Off-Strip or Downtown) features the best salad bar with the greatest variety of vegetables and fruits?

    Also, do any of the buffets serve naturally flavored seltzer water? I'm cutting back on my alcohol consumption and do not want sugary drinks or juices.

    I think Wynn has the best salad. They have a huge selection and area dedicated to salads..

    Best Salad Bar Buffet - Sweet Tomatoes

    You mentioned Off-strip, so for that I recommend Sweet Tomatoes.

    They have a location about 5 miles due west on Flamingo in a small strip mall.
    This restaurant is a salad bar buffet, all you can eat, and includes six soup choices, 2 pasta dishes, and various breads and rolls. Also has baked potato bar, and soft serve frozen yogurt for dessert.
    All this for around $13.
    I try to get there once each trip.

    They have a website, so you can Google them.
    They have another location near Sunset Station.

    Flame me if you must, but I had the Wynn buffet recently and wasn't impressed. It has it's redeeming qualities (crab legs, for example) but the buffet was small with limited selection. At any rate, I don't recall anything noteworthy about the salad bar.

    I suppose any salad bar is good as long as it's fresh and has a good selection. Try the Orleans; that's the biggest buffet spread in town.

    I agree that their buffet isn't great. However, I think their salad selection is pretty darn good.

    When it comes to an overall buffet, I think Aria and Cosmo are best.

    Isn't it wonderful ! So many of you out there having a wonderfully healthy Vegas vacation. On my next trip, I will make sure I know where the best salad bar is. That way, on my next trip, after I wake up, I can go for my 3 mile run and only have 2 Energy Bars because I know I will have a wonderful salad for lunch. Then I can hit the gym for a good 3 hour workout and get back to the room in time to get ready for Dinner. Maybe I'll find a place with Cottage Cheese and a Peach, and hopefully I can spoil myself with a half a cup of yogurt, oops, forgot the seltzer water.....Yuuuuuuuuuuummmmmmyyy.

    Your on vacation. Live it up a little.

    Booze, Gambling, and Boobs !

    that is all !

    Lol. Yeah. Enjoying salad means you don't know how to Vegas. Ok.

    Couldn't possibly be personal preference or dietary restrictions. Everyone should just eat cigar butts.

    ETA: since you seem to enjoy being condescending on the Internet, you should learn the difference between your and you're. One means "you are"

    Thank you for the suggestions. I will have to try these salad bars on my next trip.

    I think that consuming healthy food and not over-eating is a great way to make certain that you have enough energy to enjoy what is truly the best of what Las Vegas has to offer.

    I don't go to buffets much any more......esp. since most of the 2 for1 are gone or don't allow 50% for solo and they march you around to get vouchers. Good food deals abound and the herding people around to save a couple of bucks just isn't worth it for me anymore. So I usually go to a buffet when I am dying for a good salad. Then I care little about the rest of the buffet so I don't want to spend $35. MSS is good and I often head down to Gold Coast. I have always preferred it to Orleans and the price is reasonable esp if you are mainly looking for salad.

    The Bellagio one has a great selection especially for lunch.

    In comparison, i went to the Mirage buffet and they didn't have much of one at all, just a guy who will make you a basic salad.

    But if you just want a salad, why spend $30 and go to a buffet? You could have a nice salad just about anywhere, for less money, and be served.

    You raise some good points but I think that a buffet could potentially be a good place to go for salad because of the potential abundance of ingredients (including some proteins which may be available at another section of the buffet) - a lot of combinations that wouldn't necessarily appear in the prepared menu items of a conventional restaurant. If your experiment doesn't work out, you leave the plate virtually untouched and get up for a new one. One of the great things about buffets is that you can make many selections, eat no more than 5-10% of what you loaded on your plate, then have the waitress take it away as you repeat the process.
