    With the recent news that the Mirage might be sold, I'm wondering what kind of spread they have on the buffet these days compared to how it's been before. Have they cut back? With the MyVegas comp only being offered Mon-Thur, I'm hoping it's ascendingly better Friday-Sunday. I know they traditionally have great spreads for brunch on holiday weekends, and the average weekend will at least have crab legs and prime rib (that's what I'm looking for) and a decent sushi selection with hand rolls (that's what she's looking for) available. If any of you wonderful people have been there recently on a typical Friday, I'd appreciate your feedback.

    Cheers!

    Mike

    We had brunch at Mirage on a Friday in April and we were disappointed. Honestly, the best things and what I filled up on was the free Moscato wine, shrimp, and guacamole. There were too many breakfast items for our liking. We were there about 2:00 PM, which was really like 5:00 PM to us, and we weren't in the mood for pancakes and bacon. Desserts have always been a weak point at Mirage, and this time was no exception.

    This lady has many video reviews of buffets. She gave Mirage a high recommendation in the past, but her latest lunch review in May had her disappointed as well.

    Thank you so much, Candy Apple! That's kinda what I was afraid of. The unlimited beer and wine option is nice, but the original plan was to try Hash House for the first time for something different and I've heard good things about it on here before. What about Wicked Spoon for brunch on a Friday? I might relapse into my former buffet junkie-hood if they're as good for brunch as they are for dinner in the past.

    It's been a year since I've been to the mirage buffet but my favorite thing about that one is the salad bar lady. Salad bars can get so nasty but they have (had) a person making it for you then tossing it with your dress in choice!! Love love loved that!!! No nasty gross salad bar and I get all my fresh raw veggies! Going back next month and hope they still have the salad like that!!

    They no longer toss the salad for you.

    I had brunch there on a Thursday, 3 weeks ago @ 1pm. I had a really good steak and eggs breakfast. The steak was an excellent piece of prime rib, and the eggs were a freshly made omelette from the omelette station. I also had some sushi, it wasn't bad. Every time I've been there over the last few years, it's been pretty solid. Would still recommend.
