    I started playing this a few weeks ago. We are going to Vegas in September. I'm wondering which 2 for 1 dinner we should get with our rewards. Mirage Buffet, Monte Carlo Buffet, Mandalay Bay Buffet, Nine Fine Irishmen, MGM Buffet, Rodizio, Aria Buffet, Wolfgang Puck. Depending how much more I earn between now and then we may have enough for more than 1. What is your vote????

    Thanks jrinct1. So you wouldn't recommend Rodizio but the buffets instead? Curious to hear reviews of Rodizio.

    Not sure about Rodizio but Aria is better than the other buffets you listed.

    Since I haven't to Aria, I cant comment. I did Yolies and rumjungle years back and loved it. I believe that they are both closed.. Cannot comment to the others in that realm as I haven't been...Only commented on those that were mentioned....

    Aria buffet is among the best, that I know for sure.

    I think the Mirage buffet is good but the Rodizio place is horrible. We ate there and everything was really dry and not especially flavorful. We went once and will certainly never go back there, we would encourage others to avoid it as well.

    I've used the reward for Mandalay's (beer/wine/champ included) and Aria's (not included) evening buffets. Both were really good. I'd actually choose Mandalay's because its cheaper LPs and it comes with booze, but that's just me.

    I'd recommend MGM's champagne brunch if you like free mimosas...food is average. I'd stay away from Monte Carlo's buffet.

    Of the ones you listed, we've had Nine Fine Irismen, Mirage, and Aria. Miraga was our favorite and it included beer/wine but you have to fetch it yourself.

    The Mrs and I did Mirage dinner buffet in February and we really enjoyed it. Food and selection was fantastic, desserts were great and beer/wine included. Haven't tried any of the others you listed though.

    Does the Mirage have hot crab legs? Do they have other hot seafood?

    Another plus one for Mirage buffet. They have all you can drink beer and wine.

    Wow, I didn't know Mandalay Bay did the free wine and beer too. See, that's a fine example of why I stick around here! That's awesome.

    To clarify, I am staunchly pro free booze of all kinds. Always have been. Always will be.

    If you are considering the Mirage buffet, try to get the most recent reports. There have been a lot of changes recently.

    We last went to the Mirage dinner buffet in July 2014. It was awful. For one thing, you have to get your own drinks now. There is a wide and interesting selection of drink choices, but they are located far, far across the room (you have to carry it/them back to your table yourself). Same for the free beer and wine. It's waa...aay over there, and you tip the bartender. The food was not up to our previous visits, especially not the seafood (shrimp, salmon, fish & chips). The lady carving the salmon and roast beef was extremely stingy, and another guest sneezed on my plate. I had to start all over again.

    We have been to the Mirage buffet many, many times, all meals, and the most recent experience was terrible. It was on MYVegas, but if I had paid for it, I would be kinda mad.

    We had the Mirage buffet this summer. I cannot remember if they had crab legs, if they did they didn't impress me, I'm a leg man so I would have remembered good ones. I do remember some nice already-peeled boiled shrimp and I enjoyed them. We liked the buffet (free from myVegas).

    The wine & beer at MB is not free, it's $12.99 per person.

    Having to get your own drinks is actually a pro for me- I like it better that way- I can get what I want, when I want. Having to tip the bartender is a con however- I only got 1 glass of wine when I did a lunch there and I didn't have singles and was not giving more than that for pouring a single glass of wine to a very dead "bar" at 3:30pm, so I didn't tip but I felt awkward at that point- otherwise I am a fan of getting my drinks myself!
