Buffets

Are you a fan of them? :dunno:

If you are, where are some of the more reputable ones? :pop:

If you are not, please tell me why they are gross. :hide:

They used to have one at BGSU at the student union called 'The Greenery'. All you can eat salad, soup and baked potatoes with all you could drink fountain drinks. $6

You should look for something like that before someone is able to park their car under you. :lmfao: :lmfao: :lmfao: :lmfao:

back in the day used to be a big fan just based on 1) I had little to no $$$, 2) buffets are relatively inexpensive and 3) I could cram all 3 meals of the day in one sitting.

then I got a better paying job


Alot of the hotels and restaurants had decent Sunday brunch buffets. Those were always nice to go to once a season. Lots of variety and items you wouldn't expect on a buffet. Not too sure if any still do this.

Weymouth Country Club always put out great buffets during the 4th of July and during major holidays.

Now, I just find a majority of them gross and unappetizing. Mostly it's the people who frequent them that get to me. I understand being an adult you have the right to let yourself go to hell but please don't put your 7 year old on the same path
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

Personally, I prefer to get my steak, pizza, and meatloaf to come from seperate locales and to not "enjoy" all three at one sitting. And, I prefer they not all taste just like the hush puppies. YMMV.

Valid point.

But I have three words for you:

Rio Seafood Buffet

Vegas buffet, $40, AYCE lobster tail, Snow crab legs (hot/cold), tuna steak, shucked oysters, sushi, raw bar, plus the regular buffet crap you speak of above.

Angioplasty kits are at the bottom of the butter barrel.

In fact, the Rio's regular buffet is one of the best in Vegas for my money.

If I'm spending your money the Bellagio Seafood buffet is at a whole new level.

PS- Lead pipe still holds the unofficial Sahara Casino breafast/brunch buffet record of number of pieces of chocolate pie consumed in a 4 day stay.

Easily 2+ whole pies.

Rio's Seafood Buffet is one of the best...I still remember when they first opened the Masqerade Village and it cost only $18!!!

I don't mind going to breakfast buffets unless they have runny eggs, floppy bacon and/or hard waffles...pretty insane to mess up breakfast

Also, don't mind Chinese buffets...great value (usually around $6-7) and if you eat a late lunch then you're good for the rest of the night

There used to be a place called The Grouper House in Naples, FL that was the all-time best buffett that I ever ate at...same as Rio's, but they had all kind's of fresh fish & seafood that you could have prepared anyway that you wanted...damn, they even had escargot & king crab legs for around $20 AYCE

I was just coming on here to ask the same question. I heard that the Chophouse has a great spread, but Im not sure how expensive it is. Also, the Hilton hotel downtown has a great breakfast buffet too. If anyone has any info on the Chophouse (or a better breakfast buffet), please post it here so i can go for my anniversary in a couple weeks.

IMhO better atmosphere than any steak house in DT C-town. But I'm partial to that frozen rail they have on thebar that keeps your beer cold! Never had a bad meal there.
