What is the worst dining experience you've had in Las Vegas: the kind of place you WOULD want your worst enemy to eat at?

Well other than the obvious White Castle which I can't for the life of me understand why people eat that horrid crap this is a tough question. I really don't think I've had that many bad meals in Las Vegas. I thought that the Luxor buffet was mediocre at best but it's the Luxor. I mean for me I don't go just anywhere, I look up places before going. You've stumped me Mr. V

OH WAIT A SECOND!!! The buffet at Silver Sevens is inedible lol. I used to go there all the time when I lived in Vegas and they would comp me food all the time. I usally ate in the restaurant but one day I tried the breakfast buffet and there wasn't anything edible on this buffet. I wouldn't recommend it lol.

Circus breakfast buffet. The food tasted like the metal from the pans.

That's easy for me to answer. The Guatamalan food joint by UNLV that nearly killed me with food poisoning. Read my blog entry JUST RELEASED FROM THE HOSPITAL for the whole story.

I actually thought it was pretty good. Well, at least in 2011.

I used to eat there somewhat regularly in the early 90s, back when they had a bunch of very good bonus VP games. You are probably wondering why I kept eating there if it was so bad? I would get lots of comps, so it was free. I stayed away from anything cooked. I would just eat cereal and things like that for breakfast. I had friends that really didn't care, they would eat anything if it was free.

They have improved a lot since then, at least for dinner and lunch(it's been at least 3 years since I have eaten at anything at CC. I haven't been to the breakfast since they took out the good machines pre 1999.

I can still remember the metallic taste of all the cooked food.

Their Steakhouse has always been a very good experience.

I don't know if it is still there, but there was a snack bar in the Horseshoe that advertised their chili with a big sign. Hey, they're promoting it with a big sign... It must be good right?... WRONG! Oh, so wrong....

Old Excalibur buffet... 8-9 years ago. It was the spitting image of the "we only need one plate" Vegas Vacation buffet.

Gold Coast lunch and dinner buffet are really quite bad. Palace station I've heard bad things about the buffet, only tried the breakfast. It wasn't good, but breakfast is tough to mess up too badly. Before it was silver sevens, which I haven't tried, Terrible's buffet was aptly named.
