    Curious on what are the best buffets on the strip for lunch in the $20 range. Thanks in advance, I appreciate all your opinions.

    Both IMHO are good choices. Not sure what the prices of the other top end buffies but they might just be a little bit more.

    Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it. I've heard for years that the Rio has an awesome buffet.

    Two problems with that last statement - Rio is not on the Strip and it is not awesome.
    The best Strip deal for lunch at $20 a pop is the Bellagio at $19.95, unless that price has been changed lately.

    This is correct and not really debatable.

    Okay. But if you give me the opinion that there's a better lunch buffet than the one at the B for under $20, I'm not going to acknowledge your opinion :peace:

    must agree with chef.

    many people say rio buffet is awesome because it`s huge.

    as far as food quality it is far from awesome.

    Can't go wrong with Le Village buffet in Paris or Spice Market buffet in PHo!

    In my opinion, which can be debated all you want, the best value play for high-end Strip buffets is to arrive at the Bellagio around 3:30 and pay the $19.95 lunch price. Promptly at 4:00, the buffet converts over to the dinner menu.
    We make a point to hit up the 3:00 fountain show, which is the best of the day, again in my opinion, then stroll the conservatory and slowly make our way to the buffet line.

    We went to the Rio on the BOB deal and stood in line for 45 minutes only to find that later in the evening 8:30pm, there were foods that were not being replenished.(Saturday evening)
    I still love the BOB for its value, and love the Flamingo and Paris (again the lines are long when the lunch prices are changing into dinner.)
    I am not sure what the price is for the Mirage Lunch but is definitly a goodB1G1 LVA coupon.

    The buffets at the Cosmopolitan, Mirage, Planet Hollywood, Bellagio, & Harrah's were all good for me.

    Those are my favorites too. The food is more original than other buffets and at the Paris, the ambiance is really nice!
    Didn't try the one at the Bellagio yet, so that one is on my list for next holiday.

    Will you let us know which one you liked best, when you're back home?
