    The reviews are all over the place.

    If you've eaten there, what did you think?

    We'd be purchasing it with a Travelzoo deal.

    I really like the place, but we only go there for lunch because the price difference between lunch and dinner is so great. The lunch has most of the same offerings as dinner, is also all-you-can-eat, but costs $21 vs. $48 for dinner.

    I've eaten there a couple of times and really enjoyed it. Advice from other poster is good. Its much more reasonable during lunch.

    We've been there 4 times and it has always been very good. Go light on the salad bar and save room for the meat. check tix tonight for a good deal.

    I didn't care for it when eating there about 7 or 8 years ago. Much rather go to Texas de Brasil.

    I liked it but would not recommend the seafood option. Not worth the extra money.
     
    First trip for 2017!

    Excellent food and service at Pampas. It's definitely a "guy's place" with lots of meat that just keeps coming. My wife and I are looking forward to going back again soon.

    I haven't been to the one in Vegas, just in Culver City a couple of times with some friends. We went for lunch. I love their skirt steak. I agree with others that the lunch is a lot cheaper than dinner for roughly the same menu.

    We have gone to Pampas twice with a Groupon. My husband loves it, to me it was just ok. I like meat to be very well done and most of everything that came out was medium (I can't eat anything with blood dripping out of it). I got the seafood option and they gave me salmon and shrimp. They were both good but I wouldn't pay full price for it. I probably could have asked for the meat to be cooked more but I just filled up on fish and the salad bar.

    Did it with a Groupon deal a couple of years ago. Average at best.

    Sorry to disagree robron, but the blood is drained out of the cow right after slaughtering. What's dripping from the meat is juice, and it's natural color is reddish, since the meat is red. You don't see it on your well burnt stuff because it's dried out. (Cooking evaporates the juices.) (Like water boiling away to nothing.)

    My wife and I have eaten there a couple of times, both times with a Groupon. Texas de Brazil is better, but for the Groupon price we thought we got our monies worth, I would go back.

    Last two times I was in Vegas they also were handing out coupons out front during the day, even better than groupon. (BOGO or BOGOHO, I don't remember, but it was a really good deal.) I've wanted to try it but flat ran out of time.

    Being a hard-core carnivore. it sounds like a little piece of heaven! Next trip I plan to try it, after I try Holstein's burgers at Comso...even the Vegas staff gets a happy drool going on when you mention Holsteins. When locals IN THE INDUSTRY drool? It has to be good.

    Oops, back to Pampas though, walk by during the day as they seem coupon-happy!

    I stand corrected. I like my meat dried out with no red juices dripping out of it. :)

    Groupon has them frequently - ends up being 1/2 price. I have been one time. The meat was kind of dry -- but their salad bar was wonderful -- more than worth the price at 1/2.

    What's the seating like? From the pictures it looks like the tables are very close to each other.

    The Travelzoo deal comes with either Sangria or a bottle of wine. How is the Sangria?

    I dont know about the wine/ sangria. The seating was fine. Typical restaurant seating. We went at lunch and it was not crowded.
