Given that Las Vegas is the birthplace of the first American buffet, it’s fitting that it’s home to one of the nation’s top buffets today. The Bacchanal Buffet is located in Caesars Palace. It’s not only one of the best buffets in the city, but it’s also the largest. The buffet is served by a whopping nine kitchens and features 15 daily chef specials in addition to dozens of side dishes, meats, salads, desserts, and more. The spread covers a variety of cuisines, including seafood, sushi, Asian, and Mediterranean. Some of the best dishes include prime rib, sweet corn chowder, and duck carnitas quesadillas.
For many buffets, more dishes usually go hand-in-hand with food that’s less than fresh. But here, both the variety and the quality of the food shine. Reviewers rave about the fresh seafood and unique, upscale dishes, like mussels in fennel sauce, lamb T-bone, and fresh-caught Atlantic salmon in a wasabi potato puree (via Las Vegas Then and Now).
In March 2020, the buffet underwent a major renovation (via Eater Las Vegas). While health and safety measures are in place, the Bacchanal Buffet is open again as a traditional buffet. If you’ve never dined in a Las Vegas buffet, the cost might shock you. At $64.99 per person for dinner, it’s not the most affordable buffet on this list, but it’s certainly one of the best.
