Good Food at the Buffet

The food was very good. The only negative I would give (which is why I didn't give it a 5 rating) is the choice of foods was pretty much Mexican or Chinese on the nights we were there. Good quality and tasty food, just need more American food choices.

This probably the best buffet I have seen for a long time. We had bought tickets for a stage show in the Eldorado, so we had a 50% discount coupon for the buffet, we both ate for less than $20.00. The range and selection of food was outstanding. Everything was fresh and appropriately hot or cold. This must be the... More

I have eaten at the Eldorado's buffet a few years back and I thought it was decent. I was staying at the Eldorado last week and decided to try the buffet again. it was BAD! Chinese food over salted and bad; the extensive Italian section went from bad to worse. Tasted most of the food and left most of it... More

They had our reservation right but put us out in the middle of everyone else. It did not feel like we were together for anything special. I would not have another special occasion here.

This has become one of our destination places to eat with our family when in Reno. The ambiance is very classy, the staff is very attentive, and the food is very authentic and out of this world in flavor. Its not cheap, but the variety of foods and quality are worth the price. Id say eat slow because there is... More

I enjoy the Buffet at Harrah's. The food is above average and the selection of different foods has a wide variety. I enjoy the sushi, however it could be a little more tasty. The sliced turkey was great.

This is the second time we have come to The Buffet on a holiday. There is always enough food, or else it is refilled promptly. There is a wide variety of foods, from omelettes made to order, seafood, Oriental, Italian and good old American. The desserts are full of many varieties and yummy.

Very good seafood buffet. We've had better, but this one was very good. Snow crab, shrimp, and quite a few other fish and shell fish dishes. Plus if you don't particularly want seafood, there are lots of other choices. Like all of the casino's buffets, it's a little pricey. Whatever happened to the food in casino's being inexpensive to draw... More

I have never had food so elaborate at this price! There is a wide spread at unbelievable price. More over everything tasted good. From italian to american to salads, soups, fruits, desert, juices, coffee at below $13 is amazing. Everyone should try this.
