Don't miss the wide variety of American, Italian, Mexican and Chinese cuisine, featuring favorites like pizza, freshly baked desserts, breads, pastries and omelets. In keeping with the Eldorado's long-standing reputation for a commitment to quality in its restaurants, the Buffet serves food fresh from the Eldorado's own bakery, butcher shop, pasta shop and gelato factory.

We took advantage of a current "Locals" promotion and tried the breakfast/lunch after many years of avoiding this buffet due to over-salted food. Fortunately the only item over-salted was the Chinese squid dish. It was a surprise to find another calamari dish also being served. This was lightly fried but not salty.

The breakfast service was adequate and fresh. Lunch was tasty. No prime rib but good brisket and slice to order sirloin steak. The pulled pork was chopped, not pulled. The pizza was very poor. This was always very good in past years but can be skipped now--limp thin crust and skimpy toppings. Both mushroom and meat raviolis were good. A good variety of salads and fresh fruit for lunch. Desserts are always impressive. Italian deli meats, cheese, antipasti for breakfast and lunch. A good value.

Great for breakfast, everything you could want for only $9.99 Our first breakfast was covered by coupons from the hotel but we went back a few times, good deal.

We had reservations for a group of 32, and the tables were set up and ready for us. Very easy to go in and have a fabulous meal without waiting in a long line to be seated! Call their Group Reservations if you have a large group. I paid for the dinner tickets in advance... so convenient! Everyone raved about all of the food except the prime rib, which was reported to be very bland. We had a great time and loved the Buffet!

We always have the buffet as we always stay at the Eldorado and we get a discount on our meals. We meet family and enjoy a good bottle of wine with our meals.
