I did not like Hash House A Go-Go at all, but the service was really good. That's the only place I wouldn't go again unless any company I had insisted on it.

Well other than the obvious White Castle which I can't for the life of me understand why people eat that horrid crap .



Couldn't agree more. White Castle burgers have to be the worst tasting thing ever that technically qualifies as food. It's like someone ate a burger, chewed it up and spit it out, then they put it on a bun and served it. And most stuff that tastes like crap is at least good for you unlike that garbage. Amazing that theres a chain of them, much less one.

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....

Interesting. Lots downtowners went there just for the chili. I have had it many times and I thought it was always fairly good. Their snack bar and deli always seemed good and reasonably priced. The burgers were always good too.

You are just mad that you lost some prop bets.

Not a big fan myself. They make some strange salty gluttonous stuff. Why not just glop some bacon grease on some buttered bread?

Don't remember if it was Terribles or Silver Sevens at the time, but.....yeah, the buffet was awful. I hadn't eaten there before, and my uncle was in town -- he invited me over to eat at the buffet. I said sure, why not. Well, we get to the front of the line to pay, and he had some 2-for-1 deal or 50% off, and our total was something like $8 combined (I don't remember exactly). But next thing I see, he's pulling out $4 from his wallet and he's looking at me, like, "Well, come on, it's $4!" Not that I really cared, but thought it was kinda funny, as I just automatically assumed he'd pay for my $4 buffet.

Anyway, the buffet was completely awful.


I'm usually pretty good with food, I can eat just about anything (except that weird nasty oriental sh**, like chicken paws or sea urchin eggs or whatever else the hell is wonky on the menu).

+1 for the terribles buffet.

In their defense the name implies what it is.

My food was free and still I felt I paid too much for it.
They asked me how well I understood theoretical physics. I said I had a theoretical degree in physics. They said welcome aboard.

When I have guys like Wizard and yourself as my opponents, I'm pretty much guaranteed to be getting my money in bad! Usually I get it in good, but you guys are slick!

That's exactly my problem with it, much like many of the restaurants in my area. It's just pointless crap with a bunch of salt and gelatinous fat poured all over it. Flavor is great, obviously, but I prefer getting my flavor from spices, not pure lard...lol

Stay far far away from the Palace Station buffet. All Stations buffet meat is subpar. I have often wondered if it is a quality issue or that they just don't know how to cook a piece of meat.

What's with having to ask for "country scrambled" in order to get a real egg in Vegas?

Well, yeah, how much is a day of your life worth? Now, multiply that amount by three and then by how many times you've eaten there.

The only real egg is over easy, though I can excuse Eggs Benedict as passable. I thought the buffet at Main Street Station was okay, remembered liking the Kielbasa, peppery and smoky, maybe just a good day?
