We had dinner on a Sunday night (1-18-15) and the price was about $18/pp. Lots of food to choose from but I was there mainly for the Prime Rib. I like mine Medium Rare and the first piece I had was DELICIOUS! The second piece was a little bit more cooked than I liked but the best thing is that... More

This buffet is O.K not the best buffet in Reno as I had been told. There was a good variety of food and perhaps I did not select the food that had the flavor and zing that I wanted. It was like Denny's but more… The dessert bar was good. Prime rib good. Steak still mooing. Just O.K for $20.00... More

We are only staying one night here in Reno. We always stay at the Atlantis. It's way from the downtown area and I just feel it meets all of our needs. The buffet is always busy because it's worth it. The food was fresh a stack full. The service is always top notch. Our glasses never went empty and dirty... More

went their saturday nite. It is rated pretty high on other sites as the best buffet in reno. But we found they are just about average. Not particularly different than other big casino buffet. Their price is higher than others though. We both think Eldorado one is better for a little less.

Toucan Charlie's and the Eldorado Hotel buffets are the two buffets locals go to when they want a great meal at a moderate price. The food at both places is great and the experience is very enjoyable with a large variety of food. There is something to eat for everyone no matter what your dietary restrictions are. If you are...
