Oh so many good things

It isn't easy to stay on a diet at this buffet. There are so many things to choose from. Great usual diner/cafe offerings for breakfast with added Latino and Asian offerings. There is something here for everyone. Table service of juice, water, etc. is very prompt and staff is attentive.

A wonderful variety of foods to choose from! Our only complaint there was children! We do not enjoy crying, yelling and bratty kids when trying to enjoy an evening out to dinner! Several were allowed to dish up their own plates, instead of their parents doing it for them! They were rude, pushing in front of adults to get their... More

It's a good thing when you come across a Champagne Brunch but even better when ALL the food was good! Everything from fried chicken, omelet bar, sushi, salad bar, etc., overall a great choice to eat at.

It used to be a great buffet in Reno. Now, it is not better than Hometown Buffet. We also tried buffet in other hotels in Reno. The Buffet at Eldorado is the worse. For dinner, no prime rib, no crab, you could not even find a single "shrimp". Fish dishes (Day of Catch?) are dry and taste bad. Not sure... More

Our experiences here have been hit and miss. Sometimes, the selection of food is great, other times, not so much. Also, the selection of pizzas usually consists of one or two, all night. Another disappointment is that the food is not always labeled, so it is tough to know what it is. I would choose Grand Sierra or Atlantis buffets... More

Dined for both dinner and breakfast. Dinner selections were very good and tasteful. Breakfast selection was a bit sparse, but very good with what they had to offer. Priced right.

Great amount of choices and a great amount of food but the pork ribs and the brisket was cooked until the outer area was dry, hard and not edible. I have had the same meats before and they were cooked to perfection...this time was a big disappointment.
