7 of Las Vegas’ top buffets
You don’t have to be a tourist to gorge on a Las Vegas buffet.
Here are seven of the top buffets in Las Vegas, based on the votes that have been placed since voting opened last month for Best of Las Vegas. You can vote until Feb. 3.
Expect to drop $26 to $51 at the Bacchanal Buffet.
The buffet was voted No. 1 in town in Best of Las Vegas 2013 and offers nine restaurants in a single buffet.
Head to the Cosmopolitan to try out the Wicked Spoon, where you’ll pay between $26 and $41 for a buffet that many feel rivals the Bacchanal. The desserts are where it’s at for the Wicked Spoon, so save room for gelato.
You’ll pay $11-$40 at Studio B at the M Resort. Head to Studio B if you’re looking for a good deal on drinks; beer, wine, espresso, cappuccino and cordials are free with your meal.
Head to Feast Buffet at Red Rock Casino if you’re looking for a locals’ favorite. You’ll drop $7-$14 to eat at another RJ reader favorite.
Spice Market Buffet
You’ll pay between $20 and $34 at the Spice Market Buffet in Planet Hollywood. The buffet has Mexican, Italian, Asian, Middle Eastern and American stations … and desserts, of course.
Carnival World Buffet
The Carnival World Buffet at Rio will run you between $21 and $36 for a massive spread.
Check out Carnival for live-action cooking. Like the Spice Market Buffet, Carnival is organized by cuisine type.
You’ll pay $25-$35 for the Buffet at Wynn. The Buffet has 16 cooking stations and is in a gardened area, so if you’re in the mood for whimsy, this is your best bet.
10 best places to get a meal under $10 in Las Vegas
It’s time to vote for 2014’s Best of Las Vegas. The votes aren’t quite in yet, but they’re being counted as they come.
Here are the top 10 places in Las Vegas to get a meal under $10, ranked based on the votes that have been placed since voting opened last month. You can vote online or in print until Feb. 3.
1. Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop
Capriotti’s has a couple dozen locations in the Las Vegas Valley (find them here). Yelp reviewers recommend the Grilled Italian, Italian Sausage and Cheese Steak, as well as a Capriotti’s creation: The Bobbie.
“If you have never had a “Bobbie” then please try it at least once,” one reviewer wrote. “If you love a Thanksgiving meal then you will really love this one.”
2. Custom Built Pizza
One Yelp reviewer called Custom Built Pizza, on Grand Canyon at Flamingo, a “Subway concept … but for pizza!”
Build your own pizza or try one of the menu options. Reviewers recommend building a pizza with the spicy diavola sauce, and to sign up for a “belly card” to earn rewards.
3. Pasta Fresh
Located in the same shopping center as Custom Built Pizza, locally owned Pasta Fresh gets good reviews on Yelp partly because the pasta is made from scratch.
Reviewers recommend building your own pasta and taking advantage of the lunch special.
“Great deal, $6.99 for choose your own pasta, bread, & soup or salad,” one reviewer wrote. “Definitely try it if you haven’t yet, they have something for everyone.”
Mediterranean-inspired ZiKiZ, at 1500 N. Green Valley Pkwy. in Henderson, “really gets it,” according to one Yelp reviewer.
“The pick your wrap concept is so brilliantly suited to the kind of Arab comfort food that every college kid in England and Michigan is used to after a night of partying, but the level of choice also makes healthy and hearty completely plausible,” the reviewer wrote.
The house-made hummus and hot sauce are must-tries, according to reviews.
5. Annie’s Kitchen
The ribs are the pull for Annie’s Kitchen, located at 1212 D Street.
“This is my place to go when I don’t feel like doing it myself,” one reviewer wrote. “The price is right and the food is good.”
6. Anthony’s New York Pizza and Deli
Reviewers say Anthony’s is legitimate New York-style pizza for a good price.
They’re only open during the workweek, but Yelp reviews say the service is fast enough to warrant a lunchtime trip.
“If you work downtown, the trick is to call in your order and pick it up about 10 minutes later,” one reviewer wrote.
7. 28GO the Restaurant
28GO, at 4632 S. Maryland Pkwy., offers an Asian fusion menu and considers itself a mix between sophisticated chic and casual dining.
Yelp reviewers suggest trying the pork belly and the bulgogi waffle.
8. In-N-Out Burger
“According to rumors, and I believe this to be true, they apparently sprinkle magic into each burger and all of their fries,” he wrote. “There is nowhere on the planet that you can get a burger this delightful for these prices.”
If you’re looking for variety, In-N-Out isn’t your place, but try ordering “animal style” to get your fries with melted cheese, sauteed onions and spread.
9. Carlito’s Burritos
“It was just like being back home in Santa Fe,” another said.
Reviewers suggest trying the carne adovada enchiladas, green chile stew and sopapillas.
10. Komex Fusion Express
KoMex Fusion Express, located at Decatur and Washington, offers Mexican-Korean fusion food — and it’s local.
