Buffets in Las Vegas have been a staple of the culinary landscape for decades, with many properties using them as a loss leader to draw the gambling public in.
Prior to the pandemic, casino buffets were numerous with options ranging from budget-friendly to high-end experiences.
Unfortunately, buffets in Las Vegas have been slow to reopen as the city roars back to life. Obviously, the perception of buffet dining has taken a hit following the pandemic with many cringing at the thought of shared utensils and the idea of others with coughs, sniffles, and sneezes being in close proximity to communal food.
For many resorts, the economics of operating under reduced capacity just didn’t pencil out during the pandemic. This left the majority of buffets in Las Vegas closed during the public health crisis and subsequent recovery.
Although a number of buffets have since reopened, many still remain shuttered with some undoubtedly lost forever.
As many visitors still enjoy the concept of buffet dining, we thought it would be helpful to maintain a list of which buffets are open in Las Vegas. We’ll keep our compilation of buffets open in Las Vegas updated, and we’re hoping it grows as life returns to normal.
Note: Buffet hours and pricing change frequently. We’ll do our best to keep this rundown updated, but also link out to each buffet’s website so you can double-check hours of operation and price before making the trip!
