I'm wishing that I could give a score of 3.5 points, because it was better than "average" (3 points), but not quite "very good" (4 points). My benchmarks were some of the buffets in Las Vegas, which got 4 and 5-point scores from me (see my Las Vegas reviews from April 2014). Here at Toucan Charlie's there were some hits and some misses. We could tell that some items (including reviolis and pot stickers) were not freshly made, and probably mass-produced frozen items. The best dishes were the ones that were obviously made on site, including a very, very good prime rib--perhaps the best I have tasted (to my incredulous surprise). I liked that it had a good flavorful crust, and slightly pink middle, which I like better than the usual nearly-raw. For the freshest dish, take advantage of the mongolian bbq station, where you choose ingredients and the chef cooks them on a big round flat-top. Tell him to use about half the meat that he wants to, or bring over some shrimp from the salad counter. Also tell him to go easy on the soy sauce, because he can be heavy-handed, which can make the dish too salty. The coffee was very good, and we also enjoyed $1 margarita special. I had a wonderful dessert, the chocolate mousse cake. My wife really liked the wedding cookies, which melt in your mouth. We were pleased with the value, and with the food too, since our expectations were not set on over-the-top gourmet. If you need a good, solid, large meal while in Reno, this is a good choice.

The right amount of choices for a breakfast buffet with a custom omelette station. A must to try are the breakfast dishes in the Mexican food station. Wow! Love that you get a pot of coffee rather than just a cup. Nice touch.

This was an excellent buffet. A huge variety of food was offered. Most of what I tasted was good. My favorite was the Mexican food there. I loved the mini tostadas. Desserts were also good.
