So the gf and I are going to Vegas this weekend...we're not first-timers...but we don't want to eat at the CHEAPEST place either...
We're going to be staying at Sams Town...so we'll likely eat at The Firelight Buffet once or twice....but what about like Friday or Saturday night buffets?
We're thinking about like Eastside Cannery for dinner Friday Night (since its not a "seafood" night, its only like $11)
Then maybe The M, for Saturday night (since we've heard such rave reviews about its buffet)



Some buffet notes; apologies in advance for repeating what others have said:

* Sam's Town has a coupon in the ACG for a free buffet with 200 points earned. At a dollar a point, reaching 200 is trivially easy at quarters and above - and they do have some good video poker. It's good for any meal, any day - even specialty nights.
* I ate at the ECan's buffet a few years ago, back near the time it first opened. It cost me about $5 all-in, and the food and service were just about with it. Not impressive. It's hard to imagine things haven't gotten better since then (as the reviews here seem to imply), so take my review with a grain of salt.
* I wouldn't travel from the Boulder area just to visit a buffet that's better - even a lot better. If I wanted to visit the Strip, or downtown, or the outskirts of Henderson for some reason at that time and wanted to sample a buffet, then that would be a different story.
* I found the Fremont buffet just OK, with MSS a half step better. I usually don't consider the MSS worth the extra 3-4 blocks there and back unless I have specific business to conduct in the area.
* I like both the Rio and Gold Coast's buffets, both several miles to your west. Considering you can get 2-3 GC buffets for the price of one at the Rio, you can see where the value is. Don't go out of your way for either of these.
* I prefer visiting coffee shops on the weekends when prices go up (this is a bigger problem in Reno), so you might want to consider that.

First of all if you have to earn 200 pnts that’s not a “free buffet”

I am a fat degenerate fat bastard gambler so to give up the weekend buffets for a coffee shop would be a killer as I can not go anywhere without mapping out all of the free buffet eats along with clipping coupons as I am a buffet closer. Only time I can go is the weekends. I have found the majority of Fremont street buffets to be of no good no matter the price. Your post has told me nothing new.

Just a tip to get buffets cheaper - get the lunch buffet instead of dinner. If you want to eat more at dinner time, go at the end of lunch and stay through dinner time, and they let you sit right through.



Best tip if offered at whatever buffet you go to.
Its - Possessive; It's - "It is" / "It has"; There - Location; Their - Possessive; They're - "They are"

FWIW

The buffet at the Fremont is nice enough, and they have "no sugar added" desserts, if that is a concern. Good service.

The MSS buffte is good, with lots of variety, and a very, very nice dining room.

The regular buffet at the Rio (not the seafood one) has the best quality of such buffets I've tried.

The Paris buffet has very good pasta, otherwise it's nothing special. But I like the cozy dining room. Very good service.

As long as you start on the LEFT and work your way to the right....those that have been before know the best stuff is on the far left hand side
