    My wife and I have been looking at a lot of restaurants around Las Vegas trying to figure out what we want to try on our upcoming trip. Below is a list that we are considering but are hoping to get some insight from people who have eaten at these in the past. We are very interested in reviews, recommendations on what to eat, cost per person (neither of us are very adventures eaters and stick to pop, coffee, or juice), and any other information that you think will help us to make decisions. Sorry for the long list but we have never eaten at any of these places and want to eat good meals without breaking the bank. Thanks for any help you can provide.

    1 - Green Valley Ranch buffet or Red Rock buffet? We would most likely be eating either breakfast or lunch here for free thanks to MyVegas

    2 - Nacho daddy downtown off of Fremont

    3 - Hash House A Go Go - which location would be best between the Linq or Plaza for the shortest / no wait time on either a Saturday or Sunday?

    4 - Peppermill

    5 - Wolfgang Pucks bar and grill at the MGM Grand - Would be using a BOGO entre from MyVegas

    6 - Serendipity at Caesars Palace

    7 - Cravings buffet at The Mirage using the Las Vegas Advisor BOGO

    8 - Main Street Station breakfast buffet using the Las Vegas Advisor BOGO

    Only one I can help you with is Wolfgangs at MGM. Solid place to eat for a quick bite or even a nice meal. They have amazing brick oven pizzas there. I have never had a bad meal here, and have eaten there over 10 times. Open late hours too and sits right off the casino floor. Not extremely expensive, I would call it mid range on the pricing.

    I have eaten at Mirage Buffet but that was 10 years ago and it was horrible. I have heard it has gotten better.

    Did you do a search in the restaurant section? I know that I've written reviews on at least one of the restaurants in your list.

    I ate at the Peppermill and for 2 people at night it was about $30-35 total but left us stuffed. Also you should check our Dupars at the Golden Gate for breakfast. It's really good and pretty reasonable.

    I've been to Cravings. I didn't notice the prices really as I was on a myVegas reward. It was good but not exceptional.

    I have an opinion on two. I have eaten breakfast a few times at the HHAGG at the Linq, and there is often a line weekdays, let alone weekends. You used to be able to move up the line with Caesar's platinum card and above. Most of the meals are $12-$15, The only thing I don't like are the "crispy potatoes", which are basically deep fried, tasteless diced potatoes. I usually get the meatloaf, eggs, mashed, and three Arrogant Bastard Ales. Also, if you cook with rosemary at home, you can go there towards the end of the trip, and set yourself up for a couple weeks afterwards with what they use for decoration on the plates.

    I've had breakfast and dinner at the Mirage Buffet thanks to My Vegas, and wouldn't go back for free. Well, maybe to drink the included IPA, but not for the food. I'm not recalling it as especially bad, just the kind of food you'd find in a low end buffet anywhere, so if dry roasted meats, rigatoni with sausage, and cubes of mozzarella float your boat, by all means, go. You don't say where you're staying, or how you're getting around, but if you're downtown, http://eatdtlv.com/ will give you a grilled cheese and some really good tomato soup for $9, and for $20 per person, you can pretty much get any sandwich, a half soup and a pop.

    Good luck, and if you go to the Mirage anyways, there was a Money To Burn slot outside and not too far to the right when leaving. Put a $20 in for me!

    MSS is a great choice. It's not fancy but solid, really good food. And the price, especially with a BOGO is great! Enjoy!

    Green Valley Ranch IMO is the better choice between Green Valley Ranch and Red Rock. Mirage buffet is an average buffet. Haven't eaten at any of the others, so can't help with those.

    HHAGG at Ling is crowded most of the time but since we are Diamond...no wait. Will really depend on the time of day you arrive. Never been to the one downtown but heard it was not as crowded on a regular basis. We love HHAGG's food but try to share since servings are so huge.

    Main St buffet has always been good & we think it is a solid bargain. Not gourmet but we don't go there for gourmet....just good food at decent price.

    MSS breakfast (we enjoy all their buffets especially with bogo and comps) is nice. Try to get a seat near Benny the omelet guy. Sat and Sun are the champagne brunch $11.95 ( He is a trip, and fun to watch. No mentioned but the prime rib special at the Cal for $9.99 is a good meal(soup or salad bar, prime rib,potato and veggie, and cherries jubilee for dessert).

    Thanks for all of the information so far. My wife and I will be staying at the Westgate but don't plan on eating their. We will have a rental car so travel isn't an issue to get a good meal. From what I have heard so far Peppermill, Hash House A GoGo, and Main Street Station buffet are all places we will be eating. I would like any information anyone has on Nacho Daddy's and Serendipity yet.
