I've been to LV a few times and was highly impressed with the Planet Hollywood and Rio buffets. 

Fairly unimpressed with Bally's, Harrahs, and the Flamingo. 

Anybody else have favorites, or one's to avoid?  Just trying to see what I can work into the rotation for my next trip.

If you are looking for the best buffet in terms of quality, then the Bellagio has been the best in LV for the last 10+ years.

Nice price and a tasty meal can always be found at The Garden buffet at main street station downtown

By far the best one was one night had Asian, Black, and White. In that order too. Starting off with an appetizer then following with the main course followed up with a little vanilla ice cream..

Best buffet if price don't matter: M Resort

Best buffet if price matters: Main Street Station

Don't care for Fitzgeralds, had them for lunch, very blah.

Orleans dinner buffet was blah also.

If you want a really good meal and don't mind eating early, here's the play. Sunday through Thursday get to the Bellagio around 3:30 pm to 3:45 pm. They'll be a line because if you get to the register and pay by 4 pm, you get the lunch price which is about 20 bucks. After 4 pm it's the dinner price of about 30 bucks. The feature at this buffet is the crab legs. They're fantastic and already split for you.

The Bellagio has the best buffet. If you are trying to watch the budget, then try The South Point or The Orleans.

RIO (Carnival Buffet) is my favorite, fuckin huge..... 2nd would be Hilton ONLY because it includes all you can drink beer or wine!!!!

I thought the Wynn was overrated for sure and not worth the $40..... the Spice Market at Planet Hollywood was decent, but still I like RIO the best.

Always been a fan of the Treasure Island buffet. I like the selection and usually go through the same routine. Pasta station. Often get spaghetti and marinara, but they have four other pasta selections. It's all made to order. Then salad station, get this Tuscan Bread concoction they make.

Sit.

Eat.

Next up: barbeque station. Though I'm I pescatarian, I'll have the cornbread, mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, something green, and cranberry sauce.

Sit.

Eat.

If I'm in the mood, I'll get something asian. If not, I'll head for dessert and get cherry pie and vanilla ice cream. And if I'm in the mood, I'll save room for donuts. They use to make a Heath Bar crusted donut, but they haven't since MGM sold the resort to Phil Ruffin.

Anyway, repeat, sit, eat. Feel guilty. Do a six mile run from TI to Mandalay Bay and back the next day.

The M resort,it was better before Penn National took over but it is still the best around if you like buffets, plus you get free beer and wine if you like.Im not a big fan of buffets so I am very critical.

As Irving said, I personally like the Mirage's buffet (called Craving's). Has about 7-10 different cultures of food to choose from (Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Raw Bar, Mexican, etc.). Pretty good IMO.

The Bellagio comes through time and again by reviews as the best buffet in Vegas.  Unfortunately, most travelers know that, and the lines are unbearable.  MGM Grand, Mirage, and Mandalay Bay offer up some good buffet, short of Bellagio.

The Wynn has a remarkable buffet, it was my first Vegas buffet and i remember thinking this was heaven.  Lol the only problem was that it was like $44 or something, but it was amazing

The Mirage by far is the best I've been to. I've gone to Vegas six times in the last ten years and tried lots of buffets but the Mirage exceeded all of them.
