This was no chincy buffet! There were so many options for breakfast and I just didn't want to stop eating! My only recommendation for them would be to have more fresh fruit options. The only fruit they had was melon.

What can I say. Only the second time in my life I left $0 tip. Worst meal I've ever eaten. I'm tired of Circus Circus. Wish I had chosen someplace else. Went here at 5:30 - dinner hour when you'd think they'd have their best foot forward. If this was their best foot god help the poor sucker coming in... More

It's a very large restaurant and there are tons of kids in here. We went for breakfast and it was $9.99 a person. The sausage and pancakes were good, the orange juice was good but the eggs had a weird, sandy texture. I normally love eggs but I had to spit these out. My husband said the same thing about... More

Buffets are great for our family. We know everyone is going to find something they like and leave satisfied. The courtyard Buffet fulfilled our needs. We like the omelet station, and the wok station where you can select what you want and they make it for you. We also like the self serve drink station, which allows us to not... More

The atmosphere of the Buffet at Circus Circus is pleasant. its a good place to bring a family. While I was there mid week January they were only serving breakfast. Breakfast was good It was a good way to start the day.

We had dinner at the buffet in Circus Circus. It was edible but there was nothing great about it. The atmosphere was less than glamorous. It was cheap for a good reason. If I had it to do over I would go somewhere else.
