You can’t talk about Sin City without mentioning the world-famous Las Vegas buffets. While the buffets in Las Vegas used to be one of the top bargains in the city, the price points have soared in recent years, with many believing the overall quality across the board has dropped significantly.

Nevertheless, there are still plenty of fantastic options to choose from and we here at Techopedia have come up with our choices for the top 10 buffets in Las Vegas.

1. Best All-You-Can-Eat Buffet: The Buffet at Wynn

Wynn Las Vegas is held in extremely high regard across the board and was even Forbes’ most-awarded resort in the United States with 47 Forbes Stars. This number is even more impressive when you consider that Forbes doesn’t even rate gaming, shopping, live entertainment or golf.

When it comes to buffets on the Las Vegas strip, the Buffet at Wynn may just be the best seafood buffet in Las Vegas as well as the best one overall.

With 16 live cooking stations, nearly 100 dishes to choose from, and the highest-quality ingredients, The Buffet at Wynn is a must if you go to Las Vegas.

Cost: The Buffet at Wynn is open seven days a week, with their daily gourmet brunch running from 8am to 1pm ($54.99 per person) and their famous daily seafood gourmet dinner open from 1pm to 9pm ($74.99 per person). Kids between the ages of three and nine are half price.

While walk-ins are welcome, you’ll expect to wait quite a while if you don’t call ahead so make sure you get in touch before going. Prices will also go up during holidays, holiday weekends, and peak times like when F1 and the World Series of Poker is in town.

2. Largest Buffet in Las Vegas: Bacchanal Buffet Inside Caesars Palace

Don’t get it twisted, the Bacchanal Buffet and the Buffet at Wynn are essentially 1A and 1B when it comes to being the best buffet in Las Vegas.

While the Wynn specializes in seafood, the Caesars Palace buffet provides extraordinary cuisine from all over the world and is served in a charming and sophisticated Japanese-style atmosphere.

Incredibly, the Bacchanal Buffet is home to over 25,000 square feet of flavor, hosting 10 kitchens and more than 250 menu items following a recent renovation in 2021. Whether you want to slurp on oysters, enjoy freshly-made sushi, down some tacos with a couple of Coronas, eat a fat steak, or enjoy a seafood boil, the Bacchanal Buffet has it all.

Cost: The Bacchanal Buffet offers a regular brunch ($64.99 per person) on Mondays and Thursdays between 9am and 1pm. Crab brunch ($79.99 per person) is offered Mondays and Thursdays from 1pm to 3pm as well as Friday through Sunday from 9am to 3pm. Dinner ($79.99 per person) is offered from 3pm to 10pm everyday except Tuesdays and Wednesdays, when they open 30 minutes later.

Children between the ages of four and 10 are half price and people can add on an “all you care to drink” option for an additional $19.99 per person.

3. Most Unique Buffet: Drag Brunch at Señor Frog’s

If you’re looking for a true Las Vegas experience, look no further than Señor Frog’s. Despite being a national chain restaurant, its Vegas location hosts a drag show while serving up a selection of impeccable food. Make no mistake, the food is absolutely delicious and you can even add the option of an open bar if you purchase a VIP ticket(!!!).

Guests must be 21 or over to enter the show, which is located at Treasure Island. The brunch is only open from Friday to Sunday with brunch showtimes held at 11am and 2pm.

If you fancy a chic experience, look no further than the Wicked Spoon, who are currently serving up one of the most posh buffets in Las Vegas.

While Wicked Spoon is far from being one of the cheapest buffets in Las Vegas, it’s an experience of its own, especially if you’re concerned about hygiene and/or overcooked food.

Instead of having massive containers of food, Wicked Spoon provides well-presented, small tapas-style plates as well as signature dishes that are made to order.

Cost: $47 all-day brunch ($23.50 for kids 5-10) Monday thru Friday from 8am to 3pm. $54 all-day brunch ($27 for kids 5-10) Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 4pm.

The Border Brunch differs from your usual buffet as restaurant guests simply choose what they want to eat off the menu. This Mexican-themed buffet serves up some unbelievable dishes such as salmon avocado toast, chilaquiles, spicy chicken tamales, horchata french toast, and much more.

The only downside is that the buffet is limited to Saturdays and Sundays only, so get in your reservations well ahead of time.

Cost: $44.99 per person available Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 3pm. Bottomless mimosas, micheladas, and bloody marys are also available for $27.99, limited to two hours.

Of course, if you have a sweet tooth, there is also plenty to savor as the Bellagio provides its guests with their choice of fresh pastries and a personalized gelato stand.

If you really love salad, then Luxor is going to be home to your favorite buffet in Las Vegas. It has a 30-foot salad bar.

Thirty feet. That’s like four-and-a-half NBA basketball players laying down head to toe.

In addition to a mammoth salad bar, you’ll find a homemade pizza station, carving stations, an omelet bar, and a plethora of nice desserts.

Luxor also offers a very nice price point, making it one of the cheapest buffets in Las Vegas on our list.

If you like your buffets late at night, you’ve got to head over to The Palms for one of the best dinner buffets in Las Vegas.

While you’re only allowed to dine for 90 minutes at a time, A.Y.C.E. (pronounced ace) provides all-you-can-eat lobster on Wednesday and Thursday nights, crab legs from Wednesday – Friday, prime rib on Friday nights, and a champagne brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.

Due to the various food items offered, prices vary by day. There’s a high demand for all-you-can-eat lobster and crab legs on Wednesdays and Thursdays, so it’s highly recommended to make reservations as seating is limited to just 250 guests.

While you’ll have to go about three miles off the strip to get there, Imperial Sushi & Seafood Buffet is home to fresh sushi, sashimi, lobster, crab legs, oysters, and more.

There’s also a wide variety of Chinese-style cuisine like dim sum, duck, and frog legs – all served with top-notch service. While it’s not set in a fancy setting, it’s a favorite among the Asian clientele in Las Vegas for good reason.

Plus, since it’s off-strip, there’s never a line and the food is always fresh. They also offer senior discounts and discounts for children 10 and under, though the price strangely is affected by the child’s height.

Cost: Lunch (M-F, 11am to 2:50pm): $27.99. (65+: $25.99. Kids 5 feet: $13.99. Kids 4 feet: $9.99.) Dinner with lobster (M-F 3pm-9:30pm, Saturday and Sunday 10:30am-9:30pm): $44.99. (65+: $41.99. Kids 5 feet: $21.99. Kids 4 feet: $13.99.)

10. Best Breakfast Buffet: MGM Grand Buffet

While the quality of the buffet may not blow your mind, the MGM Grand Buffet has one of the cheapest buffets in Las Vegas and is full of typical breakfast fare.

If you’re someone that wants to keep it simple with bottomless scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, and coffee, the MGM Grand Buffet is going to be your preferred buffet hangout. There are also giant crab legs and a bottomless drinks package if you fancy.

Price: Open 8am-3pm seven days a week. Adults are $31.99 Monday to Thursday (kids $17.99) and $37.99 Friday to Sunday (kids $18.99).

A Cheaper Way to Eat

When you want a break from the casinos or just need some fuel, Las Vegas buffets are often the easiest and most affordable way to go. Spending money a la carte in any of the casino restaurants, even if you just want the basics, can exceed the buffet price point in a hurry.

I was at Wazuzu at the Wynn last summer and even getting a basic meal of sesame chicken, shrimp shumai, white rice, and a kettle of green tea ran me over $70. I should have gone to one of the many buffets on the Las Vegas strip.
