The city offers an array of delicious, never ending, all-you-can-eat food spreads that will satisfy your hunger pangs and then some. So, here they are: The absolute best buffets in Las Vegas.
Best buffets in Las Vegas
The extravagant plates match the extravagant setting. Matzah crusted fried chicken, ribeye steaks sliced to order, upscale tacos and ahi poke are just a few of the must-try items. Plus, Steve Wynn is a vegan so expect plenty of options for non-meat eaters as well. Make sure to check out the potato pancake station, serving latkes to order topped with the likes of smoked salmon, wagyu beef and blueberries. It might actually be the single best item at any buffet in Las Vegas.
Often considered the best buffet in the world, Bacchanal Buffet offers no shortage of deliciousness. Indulge in fresh street tacos, at least six different Asian soups and a rotation of salads made with golden beets, sweet and sour watermelon and more. Then, there is the carving station: A heaven made of smoked meat to be devoured right before checking out the dessert station. Indeed, this is a buffet worthy of the opulence expected from Caesars Palaca.
Chef Geno Bernardo is a star and his brunch embodies his playful personality. There are à la carte items like duck chilaquiles, orange ricotta pancakes, Asian-influenced chicken wings and some of the best sliders you’ll ever taste. Also expect multiple all-you-can-eat stations with interchanging items like excellent lamb chops, fresh fruit juices and a whimsical dessert station. Finally, the seafood is a must-have. Whether it’s a play on bagels and lox with fresh salmon or some expertly prepared poke, everything is top of the line. This brunch with its nod to traditional buffets is on some next level excellence.
Widely regarded as the best “locals” buffet, this spacious eatery at The M Resort is worth the drive to the south end of Las Vegas Boulevard. They brew beer and root beer in house—the frosty beverages go down nicely with a gigantic meal. The fried chicken is on point and the Asian station offers numerous options. Pro tip: Ask the meat man to grill the prime rib. A game changer.
The open space lets diners navigate the floor between stations easily. Upscale individual dishes like shrimp and grits and pumpkin risotto intermingle with big ticket items like carved Italian sausages and seafood scampi made to order. The dessert station features excellent gelato with flavors as universal as pistachio and as unique as Thai tea.
A buffet with a theme, this all-you-can-eat setting fits perfectly in Paris Las Vegas. Dishes from five different regions of France are served (the room itself resembles a quaint French village!), including savory crepes from Brittany and penne alla puttanescea from Provence. Much of the food is cooked right in front of you, a practice that always earns bonus points in our book.

Like the hotel it is housed in, this all-you-can-eatery aims to keep things classy. Expect cuisine from all over the world, from Italy to Japan, served across different stations and prepared, mostly, right in front of you. You can also opt for the gourmet dinner, which includes a bevy of caviar and dishes like house-made blinis and fresh sushi.
The focus here is on quality, not quantity. Though not as large as other Strip buffets, the high-end fare here is just as good, if not better, than other local destinations. An assortment of Chinese dumplings, fresh pho, made-to-order pasta and a large dessert station are just a few of the highlights.
What separates the Rampart from the rest? Theme nights! Southwest fiesta night features all your Mexican favorites on Wednesdays while Thursdays’. New York Deli will make you feel like you are sitting at a deli counter in Brooklyn. Friday goes high-end with seafood, crab legs and prime rib. Saturdays are all about steak and seafood.
