Vegas Buffet- Weekday vs Weekend, Lunch or DInner?

hobbess | Jul 18, 2011 02:36 AM

I know buffets are looked down upon- they're expensive, the lines are long, and there are better options these days in Vegas for the same price. (Don't worry, I'm also planning on going to Lotus of Siam and Raku too.)

But, for me, going to Vegas without eating at one buffet is like going to Montreal and not eating a bagel or
going to Chicago and not getting a deep dish pizza.

I'll be in Vegas for this coming Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and plan on eating at one buffet and I need some guidance from my fellow chowhounds. I've narrowed down my buffet choices to Wynn, Belagio, Wicked Spoon at the Cosmopolitan, and Le Village Buffet at Paris(I ate at Paris years and years ago and I remembered it was pretty good) although I'm still open to any other buffet alternatives.

What's the best day to eat at a buffet, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday? I see different prices for the weekday vs weekend buffets, but does this mean there's a difference in quality or what they're serving on those different days and prices? Or, maybe, is one buffet the best for the weekday and another place will have the best weekend buffet?

And, the prices for the lunch and dinner buffets are different, but again, is there going to be a difference in what's being served for lunch vs dinner? Or, maybe, one buffet will be the best place to get lunch while another buffet might be the best place to get dinner? I'm thinking there might be a scenario that one place might serve the same dishes for lunch and dinner so that might be the best choice for lunch because you're paying lunch prices for dinner dishes, but then another place might bring out signifigant number of new dishes for dinner and that's where you'd want to go for dinner.

Which buffet would you recommend on which day and for lunch or for dinner?

I've already tried looking at the different casino websites, but some of them were surprisingly lacking in information(I can't find the difference between what's being served for lunch vs dinner, but some of them don't even list their prices for the buffets and Paris lists the prices but its really confusing). And, I tried looking at older threads but couldn't find this information. (But, I know that one particular poster will post that if I use the search engine, I will find lots of threads on this very subject).
