    We seldom go to the strip but company is visiting us at vacation home and have a desire to do the caeser Buffet. I have been and feel it is over
    priced and really how much food can you eat ? But it their wish so I was hoping to get inside Buffet around 2:30 for lunch price and drag
    my feet till dinner comes out at 3. I think the only real change we will see is crab legs coming out after 3.

    At lunch price it is bearable. They are here for 7 days so we can pick any day. Logic would say to avoid Fri, sat and sunday. So that leaves
    Mon thru Thursday. Any suggestion or experience? It says you can now use a Kiosh to pay and it rings you when to get in line. So does that
    mean if I pay for lunch at 2:30 I get in for that price even if it doesn't let me in till after 3? Any recent experiences?

    Thanks guys. Personally I would just be happy at Orleans or the M. We eat less buffets all the time as we find more and more local joints that are
    great and give plenty of food for 50 plus diners.

    your best bet is to go early in the afternoon, around 4?
    Last time we were there, on Monday around 8pm, the line was very long, too long I would say.

    Tom, This is one of those questions where you may get many replies, but I don't anyone here is going to have data to tell you which weekday is better than the other weekdays. Someone can say "I went last Tuesday and there wasn't a line", but does that mean every Tuesday will be that way? Not to mention, you are specifically asking about the lines at 2:30pm, so someone telling you about the lines on Wednesday at 5:30pm or 1pm isn't going to help either.

    Most likely at 2:30 on any weekday you aren't going to have significant lines. Go at 2 and take a look at the lines. Take a short walk if there are no lines. You don't want to cut it too close in case there are a few others coming at 2:20 and they can't get to everyone in time for the 2:30 cutoff.

    Its possible the system has changed, but we hit up Bacchanal about everytime. You're right that its overpriced and there's a ton to it, but my wife and I had our first meal ever as a married couple in Vegas there after seeing it on Food Network so its become a tradition of pretty much every trip.

    Anyway, the way the kiosk system worked was you would check in at the kiosk if there was a wait. You'd enter your number and then you'd get a text when your table was ready. So go play a few slots nearby while you wait. Once it buzzed, you will go to the cashier and actually pay for your meals. So I don't believe you can "check in" at the kiosk and lock in the lunch rate, you'll be charged what you need to pay when you actually get your table.

    So I'd recommend getting there a bit early in hopes of there not being a line, and if there isn't a line entertain yourselves in the casino for a bit until you want to get into the buffet.

    thanks for the kiosk explanation. Think we will hit it around 2 and check the line and try to get a table around 2:30 if we can guess it right.

    Sunday nights tend to be less busy in Vegas than one might estimate, unless there's a big Sunday event like the Super Bowl. Weekend visitors, especially those who drove, are clearing out and (this is speculation) may not want to schedule a buffet before traveling. So Sunday at 2;30 could work for you.
