    Ohhh, I will once I'm back home but will start with this description. I flew out this afternoon but had brunch at the Mirage buffet. Prime rib, turkey breast, and mimosas at 9am. The prime rib was great. Turkey a bit dry but nothing that can't be solved with stuffing and gravy. I actually loved their guacamole at the Latin section with chips.

    Other bits included country fried steak, eggs Benedict, shredded hash browns, a white fish, Asian section with fried wontons, and more. Cost was $40 even.

    There was a large tour group that held up the line in the morning. Probably 50 or 60 people all with buffet coupons. Manager was out trying to explain that the coupons weren't valid for holidays but there was an obvious language barrier. Took about 15 minutes in line to get thru that, otherwise, walked right in at 8:30 with no line.

    I walked past the Wynn buffet at 8. Before it opened so there was a line but still had at least 200 people in line. Price was $45.99. I then walked over to TI and their buffet was $20.99. I was tempted by that price but don't have fond memories there so I opted for Cravings at the mirage. If anyone ate at TI, I'd like to hear their experience given it was half the price of mirage and wynn.

    1st pic is my 1st plate starting with prime rib, turkey, stuffing and green beans plus an egg benedict.

    2nd pic is actually my 3rd (maybe 4th) plate of food of another egg benedict, country fried steak under the potato casserole with a side of hash browns and a few green things.

    Picture of the dessert table (cookies to the left) and assorted cakes in the fridge wall. I liked the mini-donuts the best.

    Cost was $40 with unlimited champagne and mimosas.

    even tho, i have stayed at Mirage twice this year...we never tried their buffet...not a huge fan of buffet...we tried the bellagio but it wasn't what it used to be; I'm thinking 3to 5 years ago it used to be awesome or is it still good and i m just turning into old grumpy men?
    how was the Mirage? looks like you guys enjoyed it.
    unlimited booze always help lol

    I liked the mirage buffet. I wouldn't hesitate to go again on a non-holiday. They have discounts at the tix4dinner booths for 30% off. Cost is $2 per person to buy and there's a booth right across the street at casino royale. I don't think it's good for holidays though but if so, that'd be a great deal.

    I also ate at Bacchanal buffet at Caesars this trip and that's definitely a better one, even better than Bellagio, perhaps it's a newer, modern room, but their foods were better too including a host of sausages and beef brisket. Here's a pic from their carving station. This picture is from their brunch at 9am on a weekday, non-holiday. It is a pricier brunch option at $45 but I loved their beef brisket and various sausages. Some are hot, some are mild, all are good.

    Thanks for update on Cesar's buffet I did hear positive feedback about that place. Perhaps next trip I'm gonna give it a try

    My wife and I have always had great experiences at Cravings at the Mirage, from their breakfast buffet to the dinner buffet.
