While eating lunch the other day at M resort buffet, we noticed 3 younger guys, late 20's sitting at a nearby table drinking but not eating. Perhaps they had eaten before we arrived or were going to eat later. Maybe both. But during the 45 minutes or so that we ate lunch, they only drank. Several beers each. For those of you unfamiliar, M resort buffet includes beer and wine. So I am just wondering, how long would they let them just sit there drinking?

If they paid to get in does it matter?

not sure of what rules the M has.
as a fan of AYCE (all you can eat), i familiarize myself with the rules.
many establishments have a time limit. usually somewhere between 1-3 hours.

buffet rules of engagement:
get a seat close to the buffet
scope out the entire buffet first
focus on the most expensive items
limit carb intake
eat as fast as possible in the first twenty minutes

WongBo, as an expert on all-you-can-eat, may I ask:

How do I best indicate that I am not done, when I am up getting food (i.e. how do I keep my table from being cleaned and made ready for someone else)? For that matter, is there a preferred "signal" for when I am finished, so I don't tie up the table?

For what it is worth, I love the M. But I have not been since it was taken over by Penn Nat.

Sports book nice, Sports book writters = ass-holes

However I think the buffet is shit and way over rated. Wait in line for 3 hours to have nothing special.

The free booze is nice but its the cheap stuff

Leave a personal item on the table. I use a baseball cap, if i was wearing it, or my cheap reading glasses, if I was not.

A tip


You would be surprised how many times I found my table bussed while I was up getting more food (and obviously not having left a tip). I guess a considerable number of people feel that, since they have to get up and get their own food, there's no need to tip.

i usually flag down the busperson/server and tell them i will be back to the table and not to clear it.

the reasoning behind limiting carb intake is that they are filling and cheap.
if you are paying for all you can eat,
you want to focus your attention on the expensive meats and seafoods.
why load up on rice, bread or pasta when paying premium prices?
i do save a little room for dessert, but those are the only carbs i eat.
