Great breakfast buffet selection with a hint of American, Asian & Mexican cuisines. The omelette station is the star of the show.

This is absolutely the BEST buffet in Reno. If you go at about 10:30am you enjoy the best of both breakfast/lunch. The Buffet employees are very attentive and will take care of any special requests. It's the only meal you will need to eat--the day you go.

Hometown would get a higher rating. It was messy and not kept up. For 36.99, you'd at least expect a certain level of cleanliness.

All casino buffets seem to vary in quantity and quality from time to time. Eldorado is no exception. If we have a large group of family members in town it is a good place to take them and allows kids of all ages to be well fed. Weekends can have long lines, especially during holidays. Can be a bit pricey... More

I ate here with my folks during the Saturday night seafood buffet. Hands down, the best buffet we've ever had in Reno. The seafood was fresh and delicious, along with everything else at the buffet. I suggest you arrive within the first hour they open to avoid the crowds. Definitely try the peach Gelato for dessert!
