    Whats your opinion re:Station Casino Buffets the good,bad, or ugly

    This is only my opinion-Whats your's re Station Casino buffets? For the value they seem to have some good choices, but others are not so hot.

    Use your card for a better price. Having a coupon is even sweeter!!.

    In order of my preference which is based on price/quality :
    Red Rock- Quite a drive but worth 1 trip at least
    Green Valley- A little drive but worth 1 trip at least
    Santa Fe- good quality food for the price
    Aliante-Good food/price but again quite a drive


    Dont bother:
    Boulder, Palace, Fiesta,
    Texas (this used to be a favorite for breakfast/ early lunch but recently had breakfast and its off our list now).

    Pretty accurate assessment for Stations (not Coasts). Would rank the first four in same order, though GVR is my fave to eat at.

    Palace, Texas and Boulder are still doable for me, especially for the price/value.
    Palace is the least appealing of the rooms to dine in, but I can make a decent meal out of the made to order pasta station and salad bar/fresh fruit. Since its remodel 2-3 years ago, the Palace has improved considerably. Another option that isn't too bad is to have a freshly made char-grilled burger or two, some fries, cole slaw, baked beans for a luncheon type spread.
    The Texas has always been a breakfast choice for us because of the largest selection of chilis of any buffet in town. Love chili and the Tex-Mex stuff in the morning, especially after coming off a hike/overniter on Mt. Charleston.
    Boulder is another choice for breakfast because of the wide range of offerings - more of a combo of lunch and breakfast. Last year on one trip, I ate two breakfasts that week, one at the PH buffet and the other at Boulder. Hard to believe, but Boulder was superior product.
    Haven't been to Fiesta for several years, so can't comment.

    You forgot about Sunset Station. Curious what your ranking is. Mine has changed from No. 3 to No. 5.

    I just ate a Sunset Station a couple weeks ago.

    It was ok for $8 and it being in the area I was in at that moment. It was cheap eats that I couldn't complain about considering the price.

    JMO, but both, Stations and Coast buffets fit right in the middle. Meaning there are better buffets out there, but there are also worse buffets as well.

    As has already been said, cheap eats and easy to get it comped via points or 2 fer coupons.

    I'll take Red Rocks or Green Valleys buffets against any Cesar’s Entertainment buffets except Cesar's Palace. After the buyout kings bought CET there has been a consistent degradation of buffet quality except Bacchanal.

    Friday night at Orleans can't be beat in my opinion for what they offer + price. Hot crab legs done THE RIGHT WAY (only place I can say that about) great clam chowder (white, the red is meh) plus the Mongolian grill is amazing. So stick to those things and some of the ice cream and that's a pretty full meal.

    For Coast (Boyd) properties, my favorite is Orleans (with a CLOSE second MSS)
    For Station properties, my favorite is Sunset.
    However, I have not tried a lot of the Station buffets recently..

    We enjoy the Orleans buffet. Good selection and a great value when using your player's card.
