    There has been a lot of buffet talk lately here.

    A lot of people mention long waits to get in.

    When we decide that we want to eat at a buffet for dinner, for breakfast we always eat a little more than usual and have a lite snack for lunch.

    By 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm we are hungry and ready to eat dinner.

    The buffet lines aren't usually long at this time.

    there's more way to cut the buffet line than days in a Kardashian marriage. any sort of players card above the base level usually does it. even if you don't have one yourself, you can find them all over the place. there's line passes that you can get from a host or from VIP or even from the invited guest line. i guess if you don't gamble at all, the buffet line could be an issue for you, but even if you just gamble a little bit, you shouldn't have any trouble getting a line pass.

    If you're playing table games, even the pit boss can give you a line pass. They tend to be pretty loose with that as a comp since it costs the casino nothing.

    At MGM, you can cut the line with a pearl card or higher. Look around the slot machines -- someone left one. Just show it, don't try to swipe it. Because if you swipe it, they're going to ask for ID (and you'll be in trouble for trying to steal someone's comps.)

    We generally do as the OP does - eat at slightly off hours to avoid the crush. Except at M Resort. There we always use line-jumper passes, which they hand out like porn in their mailings.

    I get them unsolicited at check-in pretty often (I have no use for them at my mLife tier and usually wind up giving them away), so I imagine if you asked nicely it wouldn't be that difficult to get one.

    Being from the East Coast we tend to stay on EST which means we have different eating times then the majority of people in Vegas and that works for us. So, I say simply go in between meals to avoid lines and crowds.
