    How is the food it is decent? Is it better than Flamingo's buffet but worse than Rio's?

    Had breakfast there last month and it was very good. About 11:00 they started putting out lunch items too.

    Had breakfast and lunch at the Mirage buffet a month ago and tried the other two places years ago for lunch and dinner. The Rio Carnival Buffet and not Village Seafood Buffet. Mirage's is the best one.

    Ate there in April. It's not nearly as large as Rio but it's much better quality food.

    Would Saturday Brunch be better or a Saturday night dinner?

    Does brunch do fresh omelettes/waffles?

    One of the few buffets where a request for a thick slice of prime rib is honored.

    I wondered what happened to Nicole Marshall; fantastic lady who did a great job when she was at Tropicana!

    I don't care what anybody says, I like it. The service is good. Good selection. Nice clean room. Always a bargain. I didn't die which is always a big plus for me. I read some negative reviews on it and I don't get it. Sometimes it's cool to dump on a place for a while and they deserve it. And other times it's cool to dump on a place and I shake my head. This one I shake my head. And the free beers and wines aren't the cheapest stuff either. I asked the guy to make me a wine spritzer because I'm not a big wine drinker anymore (heartburn with red wine & headaches with white) and he made me one. He probably didn't have to do that but he did.

    Not being dead is always a plus... Some people expect 5* meals for $24.95.. those people are stupid...

    Nicole has moved on to bigger and better things. She's now Director of Sales at Staybridge Suites Las Vegas. It's a step up the ladder for her and the big bonus is this job gives her better working hours so she has more time to spend with her family. We're going to see her and her husband again next March. They became very good friends and are some of the nicest people we're ever met.

    True I didn't mention that. To be honest I don't know if it wasn't there. There were so many different types of food we could choose from, an omelette was not on our mind. We have a sandwich with an omelette for breakfast regularly so it's not something I would look for during lunch. Especially when you have at least 100 very tasteful other choices :)

    So I can't really answer your question. It's very well possible the omelette station is still there, we didn't notice it though.

    Thanks, I am a breakfast all day any day type of guy so if I do brunch is it more of a glorified breakfast for me..

    I went last year, didn't like it at all. The prime rib was excellent. That was about it.. they were out of a lot of items, or it was sitting there for a long time and looked gross. Also i found it to be an odd mix of food. I know it's a buffet. But, just unappetizing selection. I would do it again if it was free, it wasn't disgusting, I just didn't care for it.

    Honestly for $30, you can get a nice sit down meal and be served. Why you'd want crab legs with a side of bbq and enchiladas is beyond me haha.

    Much, much, much better than Flamingo. It is actually one of my favorite buffets on the strip for breakfast and lunch. Never had the dinner buffet. Kind of pricey, but you get good value in return.
