Top 5 Buffets in Las Vegas

Food, food, and more food. If you didn’t know it already, that’s what Las Vegas is all about (I mean, in addition to the other obvious appeals). I’m talking about the buffets—no Las Vegas vacation is complete without one. Vegas is home to some of the best buffets in the country. People flock from all over to sample the cuisine served up in these celebrated restaurants, which are often located in hotels. One of the draws is that, at many places, you can try food from all over the world in one meal. And although most buffets have American classics like pizza and ribs, you’ll also find the most gourmet menus. So whether you’re an adventurous foodie or the burger and fries type, there’s something you’ll love.

Choosing the top 5 buffets in Las Vegas is tough, but these 5 represent a variety of styles and are constantly ranked highest among patrons. Just remember, don’t fill up one thing—you’ll want to try small samples of everything…and still save room for dessert!

  1. The Buffet at Bellagio

    Possibly the most well-known buffet in Vegas, The Buffet at the Bellagio Resort & Casino serves top-of-the-line cuisine. Bellagio is best known for its gourmet fair and seafood, but they have other stuff, too. The array of foods ranges from choices like Chinese dim sum to foie gras to crab legs to pizza fresh out of the wood-fired oven. The atmosphere is classy, with opulent chandeliers and elegant artwork adorning the dining area. Of course, Bellagio serves dessert, too, but it’s certainly not the highlight of the buffet (most people agree they look better than they taste). But chances are you’ll be pretty full from dinner.

  2. Carnival World Buffet

    The Carnival World Buffet at Rio Las Vegas is especially known for 2 things: a kid-friendly menu and absolutely fabulous desserts. The Carnival is probably the best choice if you’re with children because kids will find all their favorites like mac and cheese, hamburgers, hot dogs, and make-your-own milkshakes. However, adults won’t be disappointed, either! The international selection is endless—you can choose from Thai, Chinese, Brazilian, Mexican, Italian, or Vietnamese dishes, and many of them are cooked up right in front of you. The real treat comes last: the dessert course. The Carnival World Buffet has more than 70 varieties of pies and pastries, cakes, and cookies, and a gelato bar!

  3. Le Village Buffet/Paris

    For a unique dining experience, head to this little slice of Paris. Instead of international cuisine, Le Village Buffet serves up only French fare, with a Vegas twist. The cooking stations are themed to the regions of France, and the dining room is styled like a French village. You’ll enjoy quaint cobblestone walkways, old-fashioned lamp posts, and soft lighting—a rarity in the buffet world—all under a ceiling painted to resemble a blue sky. The menu features options like fruit-filled crepes, seafood or sausage kabobs, prepared duck, quiche, and of course a huge array of cheeses. The dessert station is fantastic, too. The Bananas Foster is a favorite among patrons, as well as the crème brulee and flan.

  4. Spice Market Buffet

    This worldly buffet is found inside Planet Hollywood and features a huge selection of high-quality international options. They have an especially notable Mexican station, as well as delicious Middle Eastern specialties (a rarity in Buffetland). Other stations include Asian, Italian and Seafood. Spice Market has a straightforward layout that is easy to navigate through—great for hungry buffet-goers trying to maneuver their way to their favorite stations. You’ll also find large plasma TV’s on the walls for viewing sports games or watching music videos. Another plus is the delicious dessert section. They have apples, strawberries, and bananas foster; crepes; ice cream and even cotton candy! Go to Spice Market for a traditional, yet delicious buffet experience.

  5. Garden Court Buffet at Main Street Station

    The Garden Court Buffet is the definite choice for those on a budget, offering a dinner price nearly half the cost of most other Vegas buffets. It’s popular among locals, making for a comfortable environment in a spacious dining room decked out in Victorian décor. Favorites served every day include Mexican, Southwestern, and Asian cuisine, along with pizza and rotisserie chicken. The Garden Court also has specialty days, including T-Bone Tuesday, Seafood Fridays, and a champagne brunch on the weekends. The consensus among patrons is that this place is definitely worth the value—good food, good price, no lines.

    The Wynn Buffet belongs on any top 5 Vegas Buffet list..and is present on most of them. Also, the new Wicked Spoon Buffet at Cosmopolitan is quite competitive. Those two suggestions are based on cuisine quality, service, ambience, and presentation. On the other hand, they’re both among the most expensive.

    Cheers…

    ALWAYS at the top of my buffet list is the Wynn! Other favorites are Le Village Buffet at Paris, the Seafood Buffet at the Rio, Bellagio, of course and Studio B at the M Resort. Surprised no one mentioned that one! Several selections of beer and wine are included with the buffet and their own Baby Cakes bakery provides a fabulous selection for dessert ALONG with exceptional gelato and espresso drinks.

    Glad to see that one buffet, which I’ve dined at several times over, is listed! Since I’m one of the ‘budget conscious’ Vegas visitors, I love dining at the ‘Garden Court Buffet’ at Main Street Station! Great Value certainly! Big, fresh, hot, variety of food choices, for breakfast, lunch, & dinner. The wait staff always seem to be delighted that you chose to dine with them, with wonderful service! … I’m happy to know that when I travel from Tampa, Fl., that I’m eating in one of your ’5 recommended’ buffets there in Vegas!! …

  8. I would go for “Garden Court Buffet at Main Street Station”. Everything I can ask for is offered there. Stakes, pastas and other different cuisines. Perfect for a date for two or a family dinner. Plus, its affordable buffet.
