    Just got back from a 4 day stay at the Flamingo. Where does a person have breakfast there? The buffet. They charge 21.00 each and I didn't see the mimosa/Bloody Mary bar that they had before. Friday morning, the price went up to 25.00 because of the long weekend. Not even close to worth that kind of money.
    For anyoen staying at the Flamingo or close to it, check out hash house a go go at the Linq. Very busy but large portions at a much more reasonable price... and we enjoyed our meal.

    I agree--I would NEVER pay that for a mediocre at best buffet...walk across the street to La Salsa at Caesars for $5.99 breakfast!

    They call it brunch and I've seen other reviews saying they had mimosas there. We have the 24 hr buffet pass included with our room. Will check it out and drink a few mimosas if they have them. :)

    Breakfast is when I miss the coffee shops the most. We sometimes go to the food court and pick up breakfast sandwiches and take them back to the room to eat. They are actually very tasty and not ridiculously priced!
     
    Trying Downtown this time!

    I had a couple of free buffets on my last trip so my friend and I
    decided to do dinner there. I was surprised by the fact that the food
    was pretty good when we went. I had the prime rib and it was nice
    and tender. I like my prime rib not bloody and the guy was nice
    enough to cook it a bit more for me.

    She chose the crab legs and some kind of fish and said
    they were both good. The salad bar was small, but fresh.

    I also ate there with my friend from California when he had 2 free buffets.
    We had breakfast and I had an omelet and the guy made it nicely. He chose
    some of the seafood and stuff and seemed to enjoy it. It isn't big, it isn't fancy
    but both times I had good food.

    I also enjoyed sitting by the windows watching the animals in the Atrium
    while we were eating.

    They have moved the drink bar to the room where the desserts are.
    I had their own homemade Sangria and it was very tasty. You do have to
    go get your own alcohol but they had Bloody Mary's, Mimosas, that good
    Sangria, wine and beer.

    They also had a small but good dessert selection. I had the blueberry pie and
    it was fine.

    I had heard all kinds of bad reviews, but it was free so we tried it and both
    time found it good. That was in April of this year.

    Most often stay at LINQ, and yeah, Hash House is legit..... but if it's too busy or you're not looking to spend that much time for breakfast I've had nothing but good experiences just doing the Grab n' Go over at Fulton Street at Harrah's. Then again, I'm not much of a breakfast guy and usually do coffee and just wait it out til 11 or so for lunch

    They moved the Mimosa Bar inward. Used to be on the entrance side of the steam lines. Last time I was there it was more than mimosa and BMs. Anything he could make with what he had was available.

    I always consider this buffet to be mainly for those on comps or those expensing it out. It's one of the few places where you can bury alcohol on your expense report. :)

    I like Giada's at thr Cromwell for breakfast. Not a huge menu. But, it's hard to beat.
