I've probably eaten here 6 or 7 times in the last 15 years. It used to be kind of standout as far as buffets go. It's not bad by any means now, but it's not the destination that it once was (if you can even call a buffet a destination, which may be a proposterous statement). Probably won't go out... More

This buffet was 71.00 plus tip for two people. Which in my opinion is to much. The food was good but not 71.00 good. This was my fourth time here and will be my last.

We stopped here for lunch on the way to Zion. A LOT of food to choose from and most of it tastes good. It was not crowded when we were there on a Tuesday. There is so much to choose from that if you don't like the taste of one thing, that's okay because you have room to try something... More

We have eaten here in the past and i must say things are slipping. The server we had was great! She did an excellent job of keeping things clean and drinks full. I even left a couple more bucks than normal for a buffet. First let me say that locals can get a discount while hotel guests and visitors get... More

Lots of hype around this buffet. It was big, but I don't think of the best quality. Very expensive(35.)...surprised to be charged "holiday' rate--the day before Easter. Got a whopping one dollar discount for getting the card. Long line, not exceptional, crowded. Good gelato, though!

We had visited the Rio Buffet more than 22 years ago, when it had just opened. Renowned for its quality, diversity, selection of meals and atmosphere, it was a locals secret and often visited. Well time has moved on and change is constant, this eating establishment can no longer rest on it laurels. Selection was evident but quality was average... More

We always end our Vegas trips with a visit here. Where else can you have Mexican, Asian, American breakfast, and crab legs. We always get our fill and try something new or different. Great value.

Went there with coworkers during a conference. The food was fantastic, the price was reasonable, but the service was horrible. I had to go find a waiter for a refill on our drinks.

The Rio buffet has the reputation of being the biggest in Vegas - this is why we went, gluttons we are! - and it certainly didn't disappoint for variety. My preconception was that this size would mean they couldn't possibly keep all the food fresh and tasty. Well, it isn't as fresh and tasty as many of the new kids... More
