    Groupon has a Breakfast Buffet offer w/ bottomless Bloody Mary's an Mimosas at Flamingo. Has anyone eaten here for breakfast. Is it Tolerable? Above Average?

    Thanks

    That buffet sucks but it's difficult to screw up some of the basics at breakfast. Do you want to eat good food or get wasted? Your call

    I generally think getting canned by noon is a terrible idea in LV but it's your call.

    Wanna bet? Obviously you never ate at the infamous Imperial Palace buffet.

    But I agree...Flamingo's buffet stinks. Definitely sub-sub-par. It can't even see par from the bunkers. You are better off hitting McDonald's for an Egg McMuffin, then picking up a six pack at Walgreen's.:D

    Fruit is fruit and cereal with milk is cereal with milk. They will have enough high fructose corn syrup to cover up the bland pancakes. Etc.

    It's really not that bad for breakfast. They have the basics, an a nice omelet station. They also have nice views. The bloody Mary's stink, so go with the mimosas.

    It's very OK, nothing to go out of your way for, and another way to bury alcohol on your expense report. IIRC it's brunch, lasting until 1:00pm or so. I didn't think it was that bad, actually. The only recent change is that they now bring you the drinks as opposed to having a bartender that you go to.

    I've found the differences between most buffets to be far smaller for breakfast than for lunch/dinner.

    I went to the breakfast buffet the other day and it literally ran right through me. The poor souls at the Flamingo restroom later in the day heard some unpleasant sounds

    We've eaten the brunch three or four times, always find plenty to eat, and never have gotten sick. Service has always been prompt and friendly with quick mimosa refills. They have a big selection of desserts that tasted better than the ones at Main Street's buffet.

    I really think the big issue with buffets, all buffets, is that they are consistently inconsistent!

    I can't think of a single buffet at all, Las Vegas or anywhere, that has been consistently excellent. Closest I can think of is the local Ameristar buffet and I've seen some off days on that one too.

    As far as breakfast buffets in LV, I kinda only have three different ratings (good, ok, bad).

    There are only a few good ones that stand above, and there are a couple of really bad ones, but I think it depends on what you're looking for. If you're looking at standard breakfast fare (eggs, sausage, bacon, omelette) or packaged goods like cereal, etc. that you'll probably be ok. If you go the Flamingo buffet looking for some sort of elevated experience you will be severely disappointed.

    I don't expect much from a breakfast buffet, so most we satisfy my needs. It would hard to mess up the basics, eggs, bacon, coffee, juice and french toast. That's about all I need.

    One dish I think of as a benchmark dish, and a pet peeve of mine at some buffets, is scrambled eggs. They are so incredibly easy to prepare, either singularly or in a large batch (as in a large grill or a wok), even with something like Sysco egg mix.

    However (comma) I've seen sooooo many buffets totally {f-bomb} them up! Think dry yellow rubber clots in watery liquid!

    All it takes is a little bit of attention to detail.

    Last trip, Sams Town actually did a halfway decent job. Ditto for Flamingo the last time I remember.

    However, I've had vile gross ones at Flamingo, the local Horseshoe, and those at Palace Station were memorably bad.
