Las Vegas Buffets: Is the Wynn Really the Best?
There's no doubt that Sin City is a place of excess and that certainly holds true with the many Las Vegas buffets. Cheapos know that buffets in Vegas make sure that your stomach and heart don't feel left out on all the abuse. Hey, why should your liver get all the attention!
Out of all the gut busting, belt snapping buffets though, which is the best? That was the goal of a recent poll by USA Today. Users (and perhaps even some of you Cheapos) voted and the results are in. Drum roll, please.
The winner is... The Buffet at Wynn Las Vegas, with 33% of the vote. Rounding out the top 3 were Wicked Spoon at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and the Buffet at Bellagio, in that order. Noticeably absent from the the list of the best Vegas buffets? The new Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace.
The $17 million dollar mass-food masterpiece has received highly positive reviews on Yelp since it's opening and was even hailed by USA Today as the best buffet in Vegas only a week ago. The Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars is the youngest of the top Vegas buffets, having opened only a few weeks ago this month, so that surely played a part in its lackluster performance in the polls.
(Hey - it wasn't even nominated? Wait a sec, this poll began in August?! Alright, this voting process looks about as shoddy as the 2000 election... And not a single Downtown buffet made the cut? Erroneous.)
So, what's the deal Cheapos? Does the Buffet at Wynn Las Vegas deserve the title of the best buffet in Vegas, or do you still prefer the classic (and cheaper) buffets on the Strip and Downtown?
