Before Las Vegas became gastronomically enlightened, buffets supplied abundant, cheap, and often forgettable food. Today Las Vegas buffets are stocked with the more discriminating diner in mind, and their price tags have gone up to reflect that. Enter the all-day buffet pass: for one low price, you can eat all you want all day–a strategy that once again makes the buffet a great deal.
At the Excalibur and Luxor (which are conveniently connected via a tram), you can purchase an all-day buffet pass at either property. This means you pay one price to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Off the Strip, the Palace Station also offers an all-day pass–and it’s one of the most affordable in town at $20 (Saturday through Thursday; $30 on Friday).
But an all-day pass at one casino limits you to only one buffet, so the properties under the Harrah’s umbrella–Planet Hollywood, Caesars Palace, Flamingo, Harrah’s, Imperial Palace, Paris, Planet Hollywood, and Rio–have an all-day buffet pass that includes all seven of their properties. You can feast at a different buffet for each meal. Visitors who book a room at any of these hotels before the end of May (your stay must be before August 31) can get a deal on a room and free buffet passes.
