So I get it. I really do. Buffets are all you can eat. Proposing to limit what you eat at the buffet is, thus, a problem. When we went to the Caesars Bacchanal Buffet in Las Vegas the week between Christmas and New Years Day, we were concerned to see this sign. What do you mean we can only be there two hours? Then I remembered that I have been there several times before. The buffet always defeats me in much less time than this. The buffet here defines excess in Las Vegas. Here’s the thing, though: The food is excellent. It takes multiple rooms to hold all of the options, and almost all of the options are good. It is even worth the considerable price you have to pay.
There were six people in my group for brunch. I won’t lie: We had been in Vegas for a couple of days at this point, and nobody was feeling all that good. However, one thing made me feel great. My wife didn’t believe me about the sheer scale of this buffet. This was finally going to be my chance to show here. There is no conceivable way to show you all of the buffet in one photo. That is because the buffet doesn’t even fit in one room. Perhaps these two photos will give you some idea of the scale of this place:
It is hard to talk about this buffet without discussing size and excess, but it also isn’t fair to focus on those things. The Caesars Bacchanal Buffet does a really good job with what they offer. I hesitate to discuss this things I are for fear of showing how much I pigged out. However, different people in our group enjoyed:
- Thai curry.
- Stuffed rice balls in a banana leaf.
- Shrimp cocktail.
- Carved to order bacon.
- Eggs benedict.
- Pasta (which was the only dish we didn’t all enjoy)
- A giant handful of Skittles. Because why not?
- So. Many. More. Things.
The food is also presented very well, and it happens in a pleasant setting:
One of the real advantages of this buffet is the way it is laid out. There is very rarely congestion as happens at most other buffets. There is sometimes a small wait if you want something from a live action station, but I avoid that by getting one of the delicious things which are already ready. They also have waiter service. For a buffet, the waitstaff is particularly responsive in getting your drinks to you.
I very strongly recommend giving this buffet a shot. Here is what you need to know: Lines seem to be particularly manageable early in the morning. Alcohol costs extra, and your calories are probably better spent on getting another delicious entree. Walk the entire length of the buffet before deciding what to eat. There is a huge range of choices, and you need to see everything before you start to make sure you aren’t disappointed. Finally, pace yourself. I enjoy this experience much more when I don’t overeat. If you simply want to stuff yourself, there are a lot cheaper ways to do it. If you want a huge range of excellent choices presented incredibly well, then you definitely want to give the Caesars Bacchanal Buffet a try.
