Really great salad bar and several options at the carving stations. The day I went they had brisket that was fabulous. Lots if options and great service. Prefer the buffet to the cafe for lunch. Went again the next week but it was a Tuesday and the buffet was closed for lunch that day so check... read more

This is, without a doubt, the best buffet selection for your money this side of Las Vegas. I would venture to say that, if it was in Vegas, it would drive all other buffets out of business. The food is always fresh, it's by far the widest variety you'll find anywhere, and there's always plenty of it. Plus, there's a... More

Recently, I've had the seafood buffet there on Fridays & Saturdays. With the Fandango card & the senior discount, it's only $16, a real bargain. Two things though: One night I went with a group & we innocently said we wanted a table for a dozen in the banquet room. Well, an EIGHTEEN PERCENT TIP was charged to our bill... More

Though the Rum Jungle Buffet in the Casino Fandango has mixed TripAdvisor reviews, we decided to eat there after person in a a local business recommended it to us. We found it very good, at least on this day and as good as the buffets in South Lake Tahoe and Reno. All of the items I tried were good, especially... More

Let's face it, not a lot of buffets in Carson but this is the best. There are a lot of choices and the price is right. The area is a little smokey since it right in the casino so set as far back as possible.

Decided to try this buffet since it was close by. I've eaten at many buffets in the Reno/Carson area and this one ranks near or at the bottom. First off, it was $15 for lunch. A little steep but if the food was good I could accept that. Well, it wasn't. The bacon and sausage were both over-cooked. The Italian... More

The Fandango Buffet is very clean, and has amazing prime rib. There are always 2 other meat options. Seafood night is Saturday and is fresh! Fast servers and meals for all tastes. A little expensive for a casino buffet, but you can pay with your comps. Overall, we go several times a month and love it!
