    If price didn't matter

    If you could only choose 1 of the above buffets...which one would you choose and why?

    If you could choose 2 of them, which would you choose and why?


    General Questions
    How long are Vegas buffet wait line - generally on a normal night?

    Do any of the above buffets offer complementary beverages?

    I have eaten at MB and Aria for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They are equal to each other in quality. Flip a coin.

    MB gives complimentary beer and wine. Aria is $14 more for that service.

    Line waits for either is minimal but like anything in Vegas. On that particular day who knows.

    I think that it all depends on where you are staying. After eating, the last thing I want to do is have a long walk.

    Cheers

    That's what I got from your original question.

    Like anything in Vegas. To give you an exact wait time is impossible, as there are too many variables from night to night.

    Recently I've enjoyed both the Buffet at Mandalay Bay and the one at Aria for dinner (Thanks to MyVegas). Mandalay Bay includes all you can drink beer and wine, where at Aria it was the usual non-alcoholic beverages.

    Food quality is similar. But I really enjoyed the freshness of the buffet at Mandalay Bay. Entrees are set out in smaller portions, and there are plenty of cooks in the back constantly making new dishes to replace them with. There are less choices at Mandalay Bay, but Aria had a huge spread.

    Going to have one of these for dinner again next month, I chose Mandalay Bay again!!! :banana:

    How does that part work? I imagine it isn't self serve...but rather a server comes around and fills you up? Are they prompt and back often?

    Sure...why not?

    Are they prompt, do you get your glass refilled quickly - all important questions!

    No server for drinks. They have a station on your way out the buffet area and back to your table. You get your choice of red or white wine, and the beer they have on tap was I think MGD or Miller. Just like the buffet where you get a new plate every trip, you get another plastic cup of beer when you walk by.

    Never done a buffet with that in Vegas before.
