Opinion of course, but glad to see the buffet at MSS made the top 10 list

    If indulgence is the name of the game, then one of the best ways to indulge is dining at a Las Vegas buffet. It seems that every resort has tossed their name into the buffet hat, but some do it better than others. Far, far better.

    Surprised to see the Spice Market buffet at Planet Hollywood not on the list. It seems to be on the top 10, or top 3 list every year.

    I personally think the Mirage is going down hill. So wondering if that means the others have gotten worse.. or I'm a picky a-hole.

    I also enjoy the buffet at MSS. But, last trip, we got a half price voucher deal from a show ticket outlet. Normally, we only buy cheap show tickets there, but we noticed they did vouchers for buffet deals. They cost $2 each, but knocked half the price off certain casino buffets. We got deals for the dinner buffet at Monte Carlo, and the lunch buffet at the Mirage. Worked out at $13 each including the cost of the voucher.

    The dinner buffet at Monte Carlo was good value, but the lunch buffet at the Mirage was outstanding. The food was great, and free wine was included in the price. We'll be visiting this buffet again next time we visit LV.

    I ate at Bacchanal for the Diamond meal (2 comped), and to me it is the best buffet in Vegas today. It's not the best value, and without a comp I would rather spend the money at a sit down, but it was excellent service, excellent options including seafood, and I really enjoyed the buffet (was able to send a corporate recommendation for our server who went above and beyond the average server in an upscale restaurant).

    I thought the Cosmo buffet was OK (also comped), but I would rather have Bellagio. I haven't been to Sterling, Paris, Aria or M Resort on the list. Would try Paris for brunch if I ever woke up in time, and M Resort and Aria as well.

    My top three buffets regardless of cost are Bacchanal, Wynn and Bellagio. I liked Cravings and the PHo buffet as well. Red Rock has a good breakfast (haven't been there for other buffets).

    I didn't like MSS' buffet the past few times I went. I don't like any of the downtown buffets, but they have such good non buffet choices at all price ranges downtown that I don't miss them. I don't eat as much at buffets as I used to (now possibly once over a 10 day trip vs. typically a few times over a shorter trip in the past).

    I enjoy eating at the MSS buffet. I just don't think it deserves to be in the top 10. The MSS buffet serves it's purpose for it's price point but I feel there are better buffets out there.

    But I do believe it is the better buffet of all the Downtown properties.

    I would definitely agree with Wicked Spoon and Bellagio at the top of that list - outstanding! I don't understand the M Resort Buffet on that list - very average to me.

    I once tried the MSS buffet as it is so highly recommended BG users of this forum, but unfortunately I have to say that it was the second most disappointing buffet after Excalibur. I think I might have had high expectations based on the number of people that recommend it

    One surprisingly good experience I had recently was the Flamingo buffet. The prime rib was some of the best I've eaten. I didn't expect much from the whole experience, but it was above average.

    I agree with Xavier I thought it was bad. I would choose another as well. If you are downtown Golden Nugget with a coupon from LVA isn't bad. Also around LV I like a station casinos buffet Santa Fe Red Rock Green Valley Ranch are great deals.
