    What Buffets let you come in say 15 minutes before lunch is over and stay for the dinner offerings that come out 15 minutes later?
    Also What buffets let you come in 15 minutes before breakfast is over and stay for the lunch offerings 15 minutes later?
    Probably end up being the same buffets at both breakfast and lunch.

    Did it at Bacchanal (Caesars) in July. Bacchanal has inspired a wide variety of reactions, but I thought it was fantastic and a great splurge. Note: your ticket does ask that you limit your "Bacchanal experience" to two hours.

    I don't know about 15 min. before lunch, but we went for breakfast (maybe 1 hour before lunch switch) at Bacchanal & stayed into lunch time. Yes, different foods were brought out. We did pig out that day!

    Pretty much all buffets on the Strip do.. The only place that doesn't allow this is the M Resort since they have a "downtime" between lunch and dinner service.

    Actually, even though there is downtime between lunch and dinner, they do not clear the dining room. You can definitely stick around long enough and eat dinner items. You can even arrive during the space between lunch and dinner and you'd still pay the lunch price. Dinner pricing does not begin until dinner time starts.

    Every strip buffet except Wicked Spoon allows you to stick around past the changeover. Wicked Spoon actually clears their dining room and serving stations and then resets everything for dinner service. Todai at Miracle Mile Shops also closes the dining room for the changeoever, although I would never suggest anyone eat at that Todai.

    All buffets "allow" that.

    All that matters is what time you start.

    I dunno about just 15 minutes tho' as far as charging you.

    Maybe I am being misunderstood, what I am asking is what buffets do not have a time period that food is removed between meals/and people are not let inside so that if you get in right before the changeover you will reap the benefits of the next meal.
    Many of the buffets close for a hour between breakfast and lunch and lunch and dinner so getting in at 10:45 wouldn't do you much good if lunch doesn't start until 12 and they start removing food items at 11:00 or going to lunch at 4:45 to stay for dinner that starts at 6 and to say that they all allow that is simply not true.
    Example would be the Orleans buffet:
    Breakfast: 8:00am-10:00am $7.99* ($8.99)
    Lunch: 11:00am-3:00pm $8.99* ($9.99)
    Dinner: 4:00pm-9:00pm
    They are closed from 10am to 11am (food is taken away) and 3pm to 4pm (food is taken away) so you could not buy lunch and stay for dinner without hiding under your table.... and even if you could just stay at your table for that hour it would not fit my original question, which was what buffets could I get in 15 minutes before dinner and still pay only the lunch price.

    It's seems ultra clear to me.

    I mean if there's an hour in-between, you obviously can't do it. They have distinctive times and prices for those times.

    Other than that, if 15 minutes is your deal then they could very well charge you for the "next" cost. I sure would. They may hold you at the line for all I know.

    I have been to numerous buffets and been there through changeovers. What happens is little by little certain stuff is replaced. No one is kicked out.

    The last one I did this with was the Wynn (lunch into dinner). It's cool cuz you get to try different stuff. I also was present at the changeover at Paris.

    It's all seamless and weren't even trying to be there for the changeovers.

    My recommendation is to go 30 minutes before and not 15. When we were there during changeover, we didn't even stay much longer.

    As mentioned earlier, I believe Wicked Spoon is the only one that clears their dining room between lunch and dinner. Other buffets might have a hour between where they will not seat any new tables, but if you got there before the cutoff time, you can stay even after dinner starts.

    Use this link to Las Vegas Advisor.

    http://www.lasvegasadvisor.com/buffets.cfm

    It shows all the buffets. If you click on the particular casino - It will give you the specific hours of breakfast, lunch and dinner, i.e. Aria - breakfast from 7-11, lunch from 11-3:30, dinner from 3:30-10.
