Awesome value

Not being a buffet lover, this one deserves a good rating nonetheless. We come here every trip for a change from The Strip. Had lunch this time and waitress was very attentive. Atmosphere is quiet like the whole property is. Felt the price beat most Vegas buffets for value. Being a discriminative... read more

I guess it was just another Local's Casino buffet with a nice waitress and good onion rings (something you don't find on most other buffets). They also had a nice Triple layer Chocolate mouse cake.

The Buffet has a reasonable price for each meal. The layout inside the restaurant is nice and convenient to the Buffet. Many food choices and very good food. The desert bar was out of this world.

Pros: The guy at the omelette station was very friendly and did a great job - worth tipping! The cheese blintzes were also good. For a 5.99 breakfast buffet there was a nice selection. Waitress worked hard and was very attentive to refilling coffee and water. Cons: They need a new dishwasher. Plates were filthy, I set a couple aside... More

Everything on this buffet is exceptional, but the fact that it offers Menudo Soup makes it very special!. I'll admit that it looks strange, and the ingredients are even stranger. However, be adventurous and TRY IT! It's my very favorite soup and extremely hard to find. Congratulations to Sam's Town in Vegas for being a WINNER!

The lines start getting long before they even open for dinner as they are known for the freshness of the food and a lot of people in line told me they come back for the real mashed potatoes!!! Buffets are mostly known for quantity but this is one of the better ones and well priced

On our last stay at Sam's Town we partook in the breakfast buffet at the Firelight. This time around we decided to try dinner during their $9.99 prime rib special held Sunday-Thursday. It was one of the best buffet meals I've had in Las Vegas in a long time. They offered a wide variety of food in clean and tasteful... More

Sam's Town Firelight buffet has remained consistently glood over the years. Not gourmet, but very good. The food is hot and fresh and they have the BEST mango ice cream in the nation!

We came in about 6 PM after a long day on the strip. Got seated fairly quickly. Many good choices on offer. I really enjoyed the roast turkey and beef. Salad bar was good. We had a very pleasant, leisurely dinner. We're going back to try breakfast!

The food was good and plentiful. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and the promptness of the service by wait staff for beverages. We made reservations each day for dinner and B'fast and always got in quickly and were taken care of quickly since they knew we had games that day
