Buffets have long been a feature of the culinary landscape in Las Vegas, with many establishments employing them as a loss leader to attract gamblers. Casino buffets were plentiful prior to the epidemic, with selections ranging from budget-friendly to high-end experiences.
Unfortunately, while the city roars back to life, buffets in Las Vegas have been hesitant to reopen. Following the pandemic, many people are wary of using shared utensils and being in close proximity to those who are coughing, sniffling, or sneezing.
During the epidemic, the economics of operating at lower capacity just didn’t add up for many resorts. During the public health crisis and ensuing recovery, the majority of buffets in Las Vegas were shuttered. Despite the fact that a handful of buffets have since reopened, many remain closed, with others likely lost permanently.
We felt it would be useful to keep track of which buffets are operating in Las Vegas, as many people still appreciate the concept of buffet dining. We’ll be updating our list of open buffets in Las Vegas, and we’re hoping it will grow when life returns to normal.
Buffet hours and prices are subject to change. We’ll do our best to keep this list current, but we’ll also provide links to each buffet’s website so you can double-check hours and prices before heading out!
