What eatery charges full-price for a 2-year-old? The Fiesta Rancho!

$8.99 (once you have the Club Card) gets an adult into their evening Buffet--and $8.99 is what they charge, even for a 2-year-old. Our experience is that this franchise "nickle and dimes" their clients on everything--so much that we won't be back until their practices change.

There were less than 10 tables when we arrived about 7:45 p.m. Still, there were no plates to be found, and it took scavenging around through the stations to find one.

Staff were certainly not in a hurry to re-stock the low food portions on the buffet--likely because of their 9:00 p.m. closing time. The Salad Bar actually ran out of lettuce greens, and it wasn't replaced at all during the time we were there.

The food choices were over-heated to the point of actually continued to be cooked under the warming lamps.

Very disappointing experience, though the beverage service was prompt.

Classic example of you get what you pay for.The best thing by far on the entire buffet was the dessert area.Buffet at Texas Station right next door is the same price and far superior

This was one of the most affordable meals we had in Las Vegas. The buffet included a Mongolian grill section, pizza, salad, desserts and more. Margaritas and beer were only cold and only one dollar. Much better than some of the established more pricey buffets on the strip.

We had the breakfast buffet on Tuesday October 23. It was fine, just nothing to rave about...go for the omelet stations if you want eggs, the scrambled eggs on the buffet weren't cooked thoroughly...the pastries were pretty good tho.... If you've had a hotel buffet breakfast, you won't find any surprises here

I had gotten a tip to eat here and it was the best deal we have come across! My favorite was the mongolian BBQ! They would fix it with your meat choice and you chose the veggies and amount. I had the shrimp and it was very generous and fantastic! I chose the spicy mongolian sauce and had it three times that we visited! They also have a Festival buffet at Henderson, but the one on Rancho was the only one that served the shrimp and the sauce was so much better. Loved the Asian buffet, the Italian, the American, the Mexican and even the dessert bar was just fabulous and so many choices! The waiters and waitresses are the best too! Even to get the drink included with the meal was a bargain! Be sure to sign up for an Amigo players card for a good price on the buffet. Lunch was around $5.+ while dinner was like $7.+ Even if you went to a fast food restaurant, you wouldn't get the caliber, the variety and hospitality you would ever get here! I wish there was one like this close to home! I could eat there every day!!!
