Cheapest Buffets in Las Vegas – On The Strip & Downtown

Las Vegas is home to buffets that span the spectrum of price and quality. While numerous resources exist to help you find the “best” options, my intent here is to help you find the cheapest buffets in Las Vegas.

While high-end options like Wynn, Bacchanal, and Wicked Spoon are spectacular, their $60+ price point can make many people cringe. Fortunately, there are numerous options that won’t put as painful a dent into your gambling budget.

Note that the prices that I’m looking at to determine the cheapest buffets in Vegas are for adults. Kids often eat at a discount, or even free in some cases. I’ll add a link out to each buffet so that you can get up-to-date pricing for your kiddos.

Note that buffet pricing and hours of operation can change frequently. I’ll do my best to keep this updated, but recommend you click through to your preferred buffet to confirm their hours and cost before making the trip.

AYCE Buffet at Palms

I personally feel the buffet at Palms is one of the best values in Las Vegas, delivering quality that is comparable to the best buffets in town (Wicked Spoon, Bacchanal, and Wynn) for 25%-35% less money.

While there are a few spendier dinner options, Palms’ standard breakfast, brunch, and dinner come in at a competitive price point.

I think you’ll be impressed with the quality.

Pricing is as follows:

  • Brunch costs $32.99 and is offered Saturday – Sunday from 9 am – 4 pm.
  • Dinner is served nightly, but pricing and hours differ by day:
    • Saturday – $36.99 – (5 pm – 10 pm)
    • Sunday – $36.99 – (4 pm – 9 pm)
    • Monday and Tuesday – $36.99 (4 pm – 9 pm)
    • Wednesday & Thursday Lobster Dinner – $64.99 (2 pm – 9 pm)
    • Friday Prime Rib Dinner – $42.99 (4 pm – 10 pm)

no one ever mentions golden corral—2 locations, sunset on the east side and lamb blvd on the west. their salad bar is fantastic and they always have a ton of carved meats and a lot of other protein selection (their shrimp is super fresh)! everything is hot, and the place is kept clean. prices are unbeatable, especially for seniors.
