Good Buffet

The food over all was good. You can’t beat the price. $12.95 (breakfast buffet price) gets you access to the omelet station (which was excellent) and a variety of other things (french toast, waffles, cereal, breakfast meats, scrambled eggs and so forth). $12.95 usually gets you just the omelet at... read more

With the outrageous prices of buffets in town, we ate here twice. For $18 we had tons of fried shrimp, cold huge shrimp, crab legs, sushi, prime rib & fantastic pasta. They have an Asian station, Italian station, Mexican, and tons of salads and desserts. Plus, many soups that were delicious . Loved their cannoli and cheesecake. They had bananas... More

We've eaten breakfast at this buffet at least 3 times a year for several years. During our most recent visit in April, we were dissappointed and only ate here one time. No more cold shrimp, no ice cream available(although all the toppings such as bananas foster, caramel, chocolate were out) until 11 am, about half the selection of usual pastries... More

I have eaten at the Bally's buffet several times, and I have always liked the service and the food. I am greatly surprised by what I read here. I will return to eat there, and I will take guests there, too. People should try to get the discounts to eat there, then it's not so expensive.

We had dinner at the Big Kitchen Buffet on Nov. 28. It was without a doubt the worst buffet we've ever been to in Vegas or anywhere else. The food wasn't hot, and dinner was just beginning. Nothing had a good taste with the exception of the Ceasar salad. Some things weren't labeled properly--some kind of meat on bones either... More

While eating at the Big Kitchen I found a worm stuck in my partially eaten tart- They pulled the dessert but did not even offer to reimburse the meal- The floor manager stated that this was nothing she once drank a bottle of soda filled with worms! Ugh it was enough to make me violently ill and I can't eat... More

I think it's a very good buffet; I was a little disappointed because I had read it was one of the best buffet in Las Vegas, and I have to say it seems unlikely to me. I mean, almost all the food was very good (especially the meats) and the choice also great, the servers very helpful and friendly, but... More

Every year when we come to Vegas, we always come to this buffet and the lines were always long and the food was good. We arrived for dinner and there were "no" lines, which should have told us something. The food was not good and the selection was poor. Definitely try a different buffet because this one has sure changed.

This buffet had a very large selection. We were there for brunch. The egg dishes were really tasty and the hashbrowns were toasted to perfection. The servers were attentive when you needed more coffe or beverages. We were there Dec 24th and the Le Village Buffet had over an hour wait, so we wandered over to Bally's. Our wait was... More
