Prime Rib - Fork Tender

One of our favorite buffets in town. They reduced the locals discount last year but it is still a good go. Favorites are the prime rib, the crab legs, the tepan station, sushi is decent and I think they have salads as well. A typical meal would be to head to the teppanyaki station for fresh stir... read more

A must buffet with in Vegas. Best variety and well priced. This buffet is family friendly and even fun if you're on a date. Everything is delicious and the staff is attentive. So glad that a Hotel can continue to satisfy their guests and locals with an amazing "stuff your face" experience for so many years...every day!! The steamed crab... More

This was the second time we went to this buffet the first time was good very good this time it was not. It had been several years since the first visit so we decided to try again and at over $50 per couple it was not worth the time it took to get there and park the car. Some items... More

Before taking in the Penn & Teller show, I dined at the Carnival World buffet. The selection of cuisine is about the same as other casinos, but with more variety and a bigger buffet, in fact one of the more bigger buffets in Las Vegas. There was more choice for Asian cuisine, including a DIY Vietnamese Pho soup station, and... More

I ate dinner here with my husband as we were going to see the Penn & Teller show. While some items were ok such as the Mac and Cheese, some were inedible such as the ribs which were so dry that no meat would come off. I will be trying somewhere else next time.

The buffet at Rio has many different station like American, Chinese, Mexican, Italian and Japanese.The food is good. It's a bargain when you purchase the 24hr buffet pass for $54.

My wife and I bought discounted coupons from Tix4Tonight for the Carnival buffet at the Rio Hotel and Casino. It had high ratings from most surveys. It was as advertised. The Asian food was particularly tasty. I love the won ton soup with thin noodles!! The dim sum was fresh. I got full before I could sample the crab legs,... More

I was at a convention at the Rio when I heard about this buffet in the basement. It was highly recommended, though seeming a bit expensive to the uninitiated. After standing in line for about 20 minutes, we entered the culinary carnival of flavor and goodness.that extended in all directions before our delighted eyes. In each direction we saw a... More
