My wife wants to try breakfast at a buffet one morning when we're in Vegas the end of this month - any suggestions?

    I've heard through the grapevine that the Monte Carlo has the best breakfast buffet on the strip. I'm sure there are other places that are good off the strip, but if you are thinking casino hotel buffet, this may be worth a shot. Along the same lines, I've been told that Alladin has the best dinner buffet.

    I'm going to LV in June, so I'll be interested to hear what others have to say about this!

      This might be of interest to you. I have tried plenty of these and they seem to be trending up. Las Vegas ain't so chep anymore as it seems it is becoming a Mecca for fine food. It also seems that the better the hotel, the better the buffet and the more it cost.

                I've tried several and I don't think you'll be disappointed at Paris. Best way to do it is to arrive about 1/2 hour before the end of breakfast and then take your time eating, and soon they will have changed over to lunch and you can start all over again.

                  Another vote for Paris. I really like their crepe station. If you are there on a Sunday and really want to indulge, The Sterling Brunch at Ballys is the best of the best.

                    Another vote for Paris! Redpatti and Jeff took us there and it was excellent.

                          We went late in the morning (Redpatti was in a slot machine tournament at the Monte Carlo), around 10:30 so we got the best of both worlds! As we had just gone through the breakfast buffet, the smoked salmon got replaced with shrimp cocktail, the carving station switched to leg of lamb and prime rib. Where they had grilled breakfast sausages and ham turned into grilling beef and chicken shish kebabs. Cereal and granola got replaced by lobster bisque. We didn't dive into the lunch items too much (just the leg of lamb) since we'd had breakfast. They sure do put out a good spread........and I'm a TOUGH customer!!!!

                          On the subject of Vegas, dinner at Thomas Keller's "Bouchon" (owner of The French Laundry in Yountville, CA) in the Bellagio was outragous!! I had the duck and it was to die for. Fortunately for us, Redpatti's daughter knew the sous-chef so we had all kinds of goodies on our table that we didn't order or pay for! Yep, Vegas has become one culinary mecca!

                                Signman" My curiosity got the best of me. What do you get for $67.00??? Surely a whole lot of liquor or something.

                                Come to think of it, I have spent that much on a dinner before and I am certain you can do it in Vegas. As Lleechef indicated and I have experienced,Las Vegas is certainly improving on the culinary skills.

                                  Another great eatery in Vegas is Hash House A Go Go on W. Sahara Ave (just off the Strip). We had lunch there and the portions were HUGE. They also do breakfast and dinner.

                                  The most expensive breakfast I ever had was at Brennan's in New Orleans 15 years ago.......$100 for two for eggs Benedict (two other courses involved). It was very good but NOT worth $100!

                                    It's not your typical scrambled eggs and biscuits. It's held in thier fine dining restaurant. You can expect lobster, crab, shrimp, caviar, sushi, champagne...it's a cornucopia of excess for breakfast.

                                      Today's Sunday New York Times has a nice article on Vegas: $1,000 a day vs. $250 a day. Some good info.

                                          Sundancer, I've never been to the Sterling Brunch and doubt I ever will, but for about a third that price you CAN find me at Cafe Lago's (Caesars Palace) Sunday brunch where they put out all the Stone Crab Claws you can eat. Although they're not larges or jumbos, I'm assuming they come from Joe's which now has a branch in Caesar's Forum Shops.

                                            My husband and I were headed for Paris for the buffet, but got turned around. We gave up and ate at Bally's. I recommend that if you want excellent food, resonable prices and friendly service.

                                            I also like Mandalay Bay. Still want to try Paris though. I just need to bring a bundle of cash.

                                                I also like Mandalay Bay. Still want to try Paris though. I just need to bring a bundle of cash.

                                                  We are staying at Bally's when we go to LV in June, but I don't think I'll be ponying up $60+ for a buffet! Paris sounds great, though...will have to give it a try (thanks for the prices, Paul!) I really enjoyed walking through Paris on my trip to LV this past December.

                                                  I had to laugh at the difficulty the NYT writer had in staying under $250/day...you can definitely do it, and have more fun than he did! On my last trip, I stayed at Sahara for $35/day. Right on the Monorail. Heck, I only spent about $250 the whole week I was in the city! But I don't gamble, and I think that's where I saved my money. I was more into socializing.

                                                    Bally's Big Kitchen Buffet is $12.95 for breakfast.

                                                    http://www.frommers.com/destinations/lasvegas/D32341.html

                                                    I don't know what Signman's been smoking, but even the Sterling Sunday Brunch is $31 a person, not $67. Go check out Bally's website. The Sterling brunch is a champagne, foie gras thing. You kinda indicated you wanted normal, reasonable food at what might be bargain. Don't go lower that $12 dollars or you might end up with a Whiskey Pete's or Circus Circus array of crud.

                                                    I want to try Bellagio. I've heard their buffet was the most expensive, but also the best.

                                                    I really don't gamble. i just sit at poker machines or bring $20 to the 5 dollar blackjack tables, win $100 and then leave. Why vegas? I like the restaurants, pools, attactions (roller coasters) and shopping. It's always a luxury stop on our wat to Zion or some other camping trip.

                                                    Sahara used to be the hotel for the Geritol crowd and it was BO-RING and dead. They've souped it up in recent years. The roller coaster is a blast.

                                                      Catracks, the Sahara is still pretty slow in relation to the other hotels. However, if you are like me, and are constantly on the go, only using the hotel room for sleep, it's a real bargain. I actually appreciated the fact that there were no chi-chi stores to suck up my money. (needless to say, the NASCAR store wasn't a big draw for me)

                                                      I loved the fact that it was right on the Monorail, unlike some of the hotels, which require a long walk to get to the train. And I was in LV for a convention, and Sahara is only a couple stops from the convention center. And right across the street from the hotel is the biggest, cheesiest souvenir shop I've ever been in. We loaded up on bottled water, soda, booze, and other goodies (Viagra fudge!) so that we didn't have to pay those exorbitant hotel prices. All in all, a great deal. I spent about $2 in nickels on the slots. Most nights, I was in a club or at a party. Big, big fun -- which is why I'm going back this June!

                                                        Cat, I double checked my source of information, updated monthly, www.lasvegasadvisor.com and you're right, I quoted an incorrect price. The correct price is ONLY $65 not including tax or tip. I sure hope you don't go expecting to pay the price you saw on the website.

                                                          Catracks and Signman: Actually you both are correct. Bally's has two buffet's. The expensive one is in Bally's Steakhouse and Signman is correct as it is in excess of $60 bucks and they have another one in "The Big Kitchen buffet" that runs somewhere between $12-18 bucks.

                                                          See my post way above and click on the first attachment. Both are listed.

                                                          I tend to stay out of the Buffets as I have a terrible habit of overeating and I feel absolutely miserable for the rest of the day.

                                                            Damn Signman. I would hold Bally's to what they say on their own website if I was crazy enough to go. Even the Bellagio doesn't charge that much. I see where you got the info, but I still have trouble believing they didn't mess up. Eh, who cares.

                                                            joanie41: I know what you mean. I've been in that souvenir shop. I don't hit those end-end ridiculous places either. What we do is hit a grocery store before we get to the strip (Henderson) and load up on food and booze. We take it up to the room in a huge suitcase (shhhhhhhhhhh!) and are all set.

                                                            My husband is cheaper than I am. He wan't to stay downtown and get 50 cent hot dogs and beer. I wouldn't mind, but I like Mandalay Bay.

                                                            Everyone: Try Margaritaville. It's silly and fun. i got a t-shirt: "I'm the woman to blame."
