This buffet was recommended to us by the hotel staff. They were so right about it! Dinner was a reasonable $ 19.95 (actually $ 4.00 less with a players card available while you wait on the way to the buffet). The selection is astounding. Everything from salads of all sorts to Chinese dishes, Mexican dishes, pasta dishes, seafood, steaks grilled... More

When this first opened, the buffet was equal or better than any in Reno. Not anymore! The food quality and selections are really lacking. Most of the entrées taste like warmed up frozen bulk foods. Nothing tasted or seemed fresh made anymore! We had a two for one, and it was still not worth it . Long wait in line,... More

Standard casino buffet fare with an international flare. Everything seemed fresh and hot. I sampled sushi & spring rolls, Mexican menudo and grilled fajitas, several salad offerings, and strawberry rhubarb pie for dessert. Nothing was outstanding, but nothing was disappointing, either. Good value for the money. Attentive service.

The Rum Jungle Buffet is probably a cut above your average casino fare. The food was hot and tasty. The problem we found was that there was a 40 min. wait in line to get to the buffet. The price was excellent $9.99 ea. There was a large selection and the table server did a fantastic job of keeping our... More

Found this to be the best buffet one night for dinner compared to Reno's Atlantis (which has high ratings), and decent quality. It seems kind of vogue to put down buffets these days. However, I thought the rib roast, chicken, and a few other dishes were good. No, it isn't going to beat an upscale restaurant including those in the... More

This really has to be the best Casino Buffet we have ever eaten in -- everyone in our touring group of 50 agreed. The selection, the quality, the service were all outstanding. We were given access to a private room so we could come and go as we pleased. That was a really nice touch. Since this was an included... More

The buffet is rather large. Has a pretty good selection of meats, fish and salads. The price was very good. If you get a players card, you might be able to get a 55 and over discount. For 4 adults, it was under $50.

Based on its' location on carson city's shopping strip, we did not know what to expect. The casino is tastefully decorated with bright colors , good lighting, and roomy aisles. The buffet had a good variety.I especially enjoyed the salad antipasto bar and the mexican. My husband the meat entree, potatoes, etc. He felt the seafood was lacking in variety-... More
