Been back from Vegas for less than a day - I will not go into detail as I just don't have it in me but I will give a quick rating or brief summary. All food rewards between the wife and I ......... rooms were comped. Bayside Buffet at Mandalay Bay ........ very good ...... Everything we had was fresh and good. Will look for this reward again. 50$ Food Credit at Monte Carlo ............. The Pub. Already one of my favorite spots in Vegas - did not disappoint. We went over the 50 limit by a few dollars and was told it came out a wash. Everything was great - food and service. Pub Pale Ale is the bomb and they are generous with other samples. Buffet Brunch at Monte Carlo .......... Garbage. Even I can usually find something on a bad buffet to eat but it was a struggle here. Hands down the worse bacon I have ever seen. And this was during a key time of day. Not at the end when buffets are usually beat up. How anyone could put some of the food I saw on the serving line out for people to eat really had me questioning what was going on behind the scenes. We nibbled a bit and left. --- Stay Away Lunch Buffet at the Bellagio. ........ it was OK. Disappointing all things considered since this was "The Bellagio". If I had to sum it up .......... it was more of a cafeteria quality. We will not repeat on this reward. 50$ Food Credit at Monte Carlo .........Diablo's Cantina. Pleasantly surprised here. Neither of us have heard much positive about Diablos but the food and service were fantastic on a busy Halloween early afternoon. The fajitas were the best I have ever had and the wife loved her steak taco's. Portions were very large also. We were here for awhile - drinks and desert. Well over the 50$ limit and was once again told it came out a wash. I would eat here again in a heart beat - a bit loud but you know that by just walking by. MGM Dinner Buffet ............ Wish I had of been more hungry - I had been pounding the beers all day.. Everything was fantastic. Kung Pow Chicken A+, some of the best mac and cheese I have ever had, Buffet was a bit beat up but variety was top notch. If you can't find something good on the buffet your just hard to please. The wife was disappointed with the desert bar. I was so full I did not even venture to that side. We hope to be able to repeat this reward. I would not call us big eaters ............. we were there for 7 days including the fly day in. We ate no where else - 1 of these rewards per day was more than plenty. Hope this helps some of you deciding on what rewards to pull the trigger on. Please be generous to your servers when tipping - your meal may be free but their service is not and I am sure they express sentiments when someone walks in with a reward voucher and tips poorly or not at all. ---------- side note - we have been myvegas players since the beginning. We have redeemed many a reward over the last few years and redeeming this time was the easiest and fastest it has ever been.
