Taking into account chip cost and quality which buffet would you choose
The Aria lunch for 2 at 78K chips.
MGM Grand, weekend dinner.
26k points, and its better than Mirage, and about 7k less LP.
Ah won't be there for a weekend. Should have mentioned that
Kind of unfair for me to answer my opinion as I haven't done a lot of MGM's buffets (only Bellagio and Mirage).
That being said, I've done Bellagio about 4 times for dinner and it has never disappointed. Actually , keeping in mind it only cost you your time playing and zero out of pocket, I don't see how you could go wrong on any of the buffet offerings.
Depends on where you are closer to. Mandalay Bay Dinner Buffet was OUTSTANDING! Bellagio is great as well. Those would be my 2 choices.
If you wait a few weeks, I'll let you know how the Aria dinner buffet from MyVegas is!
Of all the free buffets I've had from MyVegas, I wish I could do the dinner at MB again. The freshness and quality was superb!
I agree, the Mandalay Bay buffet is probably the most underrated buffet in Vegas. Never see it on any top ten lists but I've always found it to be top-notch. I was highly disappointed with my last trip to the Bellagio buffet, but people still swear by it so maybe I just went during Mediocre Overcooked Uncreative Amateur Hour. And though it probably needs not be said, do not waste your precious LPs on the Circus Circus or Excalibur buffets.
I've seen 2 for 1 buffets that you can purchase out right so spending MyVegas LP on them seems to be a bit of a waste. If you are low on LP but have 2 accounts (you and spouse/friend) or only need one buffet they are far cheaper to buy each than in pairs.
People will say to avoid Luxor-Excal-Circus-Monte buffets but for someone without a lot of LP or leaving soon they can represent great value if you just want quantity vs quality. 2 buffets for 30k or one all day for 40k if you aren't fussy.
Mandalay Bay-MGM-Mirage offer best decent meal for points. Just be careful because of the restrictions on day of the week. Some are 7 days others Mon-Thurs or Fri
Used the Mandalay Bay buffet last August and it exceeded my expectations by a lot. One of the better buffets I've had in Vegas. I would highly recommend. Also comes with free wine, beer, and champagne.
High End Bellagio
Mid End Rio Carnival
Inexpensive Orleans MSS
Aria breakfast buffet was great.
Aria Lunch 2-for-1 is like a $36 savings for what 6,000 points? It was my second favorite buffet to Wynn.
I haven't see Main Street Station or anything else downtown. Am I missing something with MyVEGAS rewards.
Assume the poster just missed the idea for it being a myvegas reward question
Monte Carlo for breakfast/brunch...made to order omelets and all the typical staples for breakfast plus savory lunch items if you want, all for a low point cost.
Aria for lunch...variety of cuisines, everything is hot/steaming, nice dessert selection.
Another vote for Mandalay Bay. If your using the 2 for 1, you can't really go wrong with MB, Mirage, or Aria.
We've eaten at the Excalibur buffet twice now and both times it was perfectly acceptable. However we've not yet tried any of the others on the comps list so can't compare.
On our next trip, we're going for the Take 2 24 hour buffet pass at 40000LP, and will also get a 2-for-1 Mandalay Bay dinner buffet.
Bellagio for me
Best deal out there is the all day pass from luxor/excalibur
3 meals for 40 000
Both of those buffets are considered almost inedible.
Do not subject yourself to one meal at them much less every meal all day.
