    I’d like to get out there some time over Thanksgiving. I’m sure that when it’s not covid time, most of the buffets go on steroids as you might expect.

    What are some of the better Thanksgiving meals you’ve had in Las Vegas? Make me drool! :feedme:

    I go to Picasso every year for the last few years (no family, complicated). Occasionally with a friend, usually solo. I make a version of my grandmother's sweet potato pie, but otherwise just want to eat food, watch football, read my magazine, and gaze out onto the Bellagio fountains.

    Haven't seen this year's menu, but from Eater a while back:

    Easy. Staying at Bellagio in 2002 for our tenth anniversary. They had a three hour wait for the buffet, I had a reservation at Voodoo Lounge. Lamb chops for me, scallops for the missus, anytime they are on the menu.

    Hmmmm. Never been to LV on Tgiving.

    And as I think about it.... While I have zero hesitation regarding dining solo, it never occurred to me to dine out alone on either of the two Thanksgivings Ive been alone. This year will be third, but most of SF Bay has ordered indoor dining stopped or curtailed effective this week through 12/21.

    I'm reminded of many years ago when I often rode the Harrah's Day Trip Bus up to Tahoe. The busses had hosts, and when the host asked if I wanted to book Thanksgiving... I was surprised. She went on to explain that Thanksgiving was one of the bus's busiest day, that many many solos went, and Harveys had a by-invitation Thanksgiving banquet for regulars. I thought it sounded like a great idea.

    Only done Vegas once for Thanksgiving and once was enough (more about that later). It must have been in the 90's at some point. Traveled over on that Wednesday by car from Cali's central coast.

    If I remember correctly, TG dinner was at the Victorian Room at the old Barbary Coast. It was excellent, as was every other meal I had at that establishment for like 30 years. Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and excellent rolls—I always loved their rolls. Who knows what happened with the gambling on that weekend. I probably lost.

    But, what I do remember was the bumper to bumper traffic all the way from Vegas to Barstow on that Sunday coming home. What a nightmare. I think it was 5 hours from stateline to the turn off to Highway 58. I have never left Vegas on a Sunday since.

    Dinner at The Mansion. Had ham, turkey, mushroom soup, mashed potatoes with gravy, green beans, rolls, mac and cheese, cranberry sauce (both theirs and a can of jellied cranberry sauce I had the butler team get for me). In fact I'm doing the same thing this Christmas re the can of cranberries. Head chef at Morongo is hooking it up for me.

    For desert we had apple and pumpkin pie.

    To drink, I had a snifter each of Louis XIII, Hennessey Paradis Imperial and Richard Hennessy. My wife had wine I think.

    In either 2001 or 2002, I had the Thanksgiving buffet at the Palms. It was probably the best food of all the times I ever ate there, with all the traditional items associated with a Thanksgiving meal. After that it kept getting worse to the point that when I stayed there a few times, the only time I would do the buffet was for breakfast.

    Only been in Vegas on Thanksgiving once (last year 2019).

    Had a large group - and we had planned to eat at Bacchanal Buffet but the wait was unbelievable (like 'come back in 3 hours').

    I am fake diamond (Hilton - Wynham - Caesars match), so I had bad expectations that I had more clout :).

    We ended up at Gordon Ramsay's - wait of about 20 minutes and all turned out well.

    2019 had Thanksgiving dinner at Old Homestead at Caesars.
    It was great food ,service and compared to some the other offers ,the value was good.
    Would definitely go back if I was in town.

    That's exactly the case before.
    Thanksgiving is feast time, excessive food and drinks. Nothing beats a good buffet with unlimited drinks.

    Obviously not much in the way of buffets this year, but I've been going to Picasso every Thanksgiving for a decade. They haven't posted their menu for this year yet, but from previous years:

    As an update, I was told it will be $185 this year.

    Apologies for the double post!
