    Since signing up of the TR Visa

    We get the Buffet of Buffet pass for 24hrs

    We know how it works....

    -----------------------------------------------------

    Question is........

    -----------------------------------------------------

    For Lunch.... PH or Parris?

    For Dinner ... PH or Parris?

    And then, for Breakfast.. PH or Paris?

    ----------------------------------------------------

    Heard these were the best of the CET places to eat at Buffets.

    first of all, time it so you can get 4 meals (2 dinners).

    also, there are more than 2 options.....consider rio.....or perhaps harrahs or flamingo, just for variety.

    ph is better than paris, so have your dinners there.

    I'd never do a buffet for breakfast myself (I prefer a very light breakfast) but have heard a lot of people say good things about Paris' buffet for breakfast.

    But as said, I would also try for 4 meals out of it and that way you can try more... whatever meal you want to get two of you just do the first one later and the second time earlier.

    IE: if you want to get two dinners then: the day you are going to activate the 24 hours you go for dinner later, maybe at 7:30PM then the next morning do breakfast at 8AM, lunch at 1:30PM and dinner at 7PM... that gets you in for that second dinner before the 24 hours expires at 7:30PM.

    If those are your only choices....Breakfast - Paris, Lunch - Paris, Dinner- PH.

    However, I'd start with dinner at 8:30 to 9pm and that way you can get another dinner as long as you reach the cashier before the time you started the night before.

    The pass can expire while you wait in line.

    Why are you limiting your choices to those 2?

    Also, I have found that I can't get 4 meals. Why? I can't eat a breakfast buffet AND lunch AND dinner. It's too much food.

    I usually get

    Late dinner
    Brunch (pick Paris here)
    Earlier dinner

    We did it in the summer with the TR Visa pass and just took 2 meals out of it. Dinner at PH and Sunday brunch the next morning at Paris. That worked well and I would do it again, at least the Paris brunch which I though was great and highly recommend.

    I gotta get that TR Visa.

    I'm surprised MGM doesn't have a clone.

    Like many others i would say do the 4 meal as its a 24 hour pass not a daily pass.

    I do the Buffet of buffet thing at least twice every trip

    you cant go wrong with PH and Paris i much prefer Harrahs to Flamingo

    We always do the B of B's. If you can have any self-control...lol....we do a late dinner the 1st day....about 8-8:30.....usually at PH or Rio. A light breakfast at Paris or Flam. Then a light lunch.....maybe Harrah's or PH. We then do a late dinner about 7:30-8 since I am Diamond and can get seated very quickly. The is an up-charge for Caesars Buffet....but it is the highest rated in LV. We plan to do this for our 1st or last dinner next trip.

    Since it's free, apend the extra and do the Bacchanal buffet at Ceasers. It is by far the best buffet you can get with the B of B's.

    Haha, not to mention the patience to stand in line to 4 different buffets in 24hours. This whole thing sounds like a cruel punishment to me and is something i would never do especially while on vacation.

    Thanks for the great idea of two dinners!

    One at PH and the other at Paris for a comparison taste.

    We see alot of votes for Paris Breakfast.

    We are usually, two meal a day, type people. Breakfast, mid day snack, and then Dinner.

    So wherever we are, and if the lunch lines are not too long, we will stop in for a snack. The two dinners will help save money (or should I just confess and be honest about it, more money for VP at the Bar :drunk:).

    Our lunch the 2nd day usually consists of a little salad or some peel n eat shrimp. Sometimes hubby just gets some ice cream. It is very nice to just slip in for a snack and be able to get a tall soft drink. The buffet at the Paris always let us take our refilled glass out to the casino. It is great for us since we can't eat much at one sitting since we've gotten older and having this pass enables us to get our money's worth over the 24 hours without over-eating. Good luck!

    We did it last year.
    We at a little late for dinner the first night at the Rio
    Then ate the Paris buffet for breakfast (a very good breakfast buffet)
    Then a little early dinner at PH.

    All 3 of these were very good with a good variety on each.

    For Breakfast....Paris due to freshly, made to order crepes and omelets.

    For Lunch...probably Paris over PH, but try PH for a variety.

    For Dinner...Paris and ask for steamed crab legs. They will bring you out a huge bucket of pre-sliced crab legs.

    We also did this last year end of January and it was great! First night we were there (sunday) we went out to the Rio around 530ish and had dinner then the next morning had breakfast at Paris and then dinner that evening at PH. There were not long lines at all. We plan on doing it again for our next visit. ;-)

    Paris for Dinner one night and thank you for the tip about steamed crab legs.

    GF is the one that likes crab legs (not me, I know, how strange), but the all 95 pounds of her, she can't do a full bucket, else it will go to waste.

    Can she request a half bucket?

    Since you got the TR visa you also get upgraded to Platinum and get to skip the long lines. Comes in real handy at Paris for breakfast.
