Wednesdays are cheapest

Yummy buffet but pricey if you pay. Use points from the casino rewards card to eat for free. Saturday night is most expensive - crab legs and long lines. Wednesdays all 3 meals are 30% off. Only place I have ever seen Espresso Chocolate Oreo ice cream - it is heavenly!

If you are hungry after spending all your money at the slots, well this is the place. Great selection and price. Every now and then a station is empty of food. But, since they feed so many, I can see that. We are going this weekend and we will eat here.

Staying at the Blue Chip Casino and was hungry. it was very cold outside so I thought I would try the Buffett. On a Friday evening the cost with tax was $28.88. The best I can say was that it was average. The food I got was cold and uninteresting. The restaurant itself was dull and boring. I would not... More

We usually try and visit the Options Buffet anytime we are in town and they have never disappointed us. The Buffet is adjacent to the Casino and with easy access from either of the Blue Chip hotels. You do not have to enter the casino in order to get to the buffet. For the breakfast buffet, the price was $11.99... More

Soups, salads and everything in between, not to mention the desert bar and chocolate fountain. Food was good for a buffet and everything hot. We went during lunch.

I live just outside Las Vegas and have eaten at many of the buffets here, both on and off the strip. I have just returned from a visit at the Blue Chip Casino (a Boyd Gaming property) and during this visit my wife and I took in the Saturday seafood buffet they hold. I can honestly say it's the BEST... More

We ate here on New Year’s Day and was it outstanding. The feature was king crab legs and steak, the crab legs were huge and the steaks were tasty. The buffet offers several choices from many different fares, you won’t leave hungry. Everything we tried was tasty and served at the appropriate temperature. I’m not normally a big buffet fan...

Breakfast was a little overpriced. Food selection was okay. Service was slow. My waitress only had 2 tables that I could see, so not sure why the service was lacking.

Went to the Options Saturday brunch buffet. I was promptly seated near the buffet and the host took my drink order for coffee and it was waiting for me by the time I returned from the buffet with my first plate. This is where all service ended. My server never came by to check on me. By the time I... More
