If you are reading this blog post because you want to know which ONE buffet in Vegas you must go to during your visit, look no further. It’s the Bacchanal Buffet at Caesar’s Palace.
Bacchanal Buffet isn’t cheap so my BIGGEST pro tip for you is: come during the tail end of lunch time (around 2:30pm) so when you sit down and get your drink, they’ll be slowly migrating over to the dinner selections. You’ll end up getting to eat the full selection of the dinner menu by paying only the lunch price!
The downside of course is that you’ll end up eating dinner at 3pm which is a super odd time. But hey, if you want to save money, that’s what you’ll have to do!
Another warning, sometimes the line is super long so make sure you scope out the line prior to 2:30 or else you’ll end up waiting in line for 45 mins, only to get to the cashier by the time they’ve switched over to the dinner price.
This may not look very impressive but I can tell you each item was THE BOMB!!! From the egg drop soup (top left), shrimp and grits (top right), escargot ravioli (bottom right), to the cheesy lobster mac (bottom left), every item was so good I wanted to get seconds for all of them!
I normally don’t like to get Asian dishes at buffets, but the selection here was really impressive. Plus, everything tasted really authentic, and that’s SAYING SOMETHING.
Just looking at this is giving me meat sweats. 😛
One of my favourite items here!! The Bone Marrow!!!
They broil bone marrow in the oven and serve it with some plain crackers. The bone marrow (which is essentially beef tallow/beef fat) gets incredibly soft and spreadable, so it’s perfect for the crackers. There really is nothing better than that.
If you’re a seafood lover like me, you’ll loveeee their selection of seafood. I got snow crab, giant freshwater prawns, raw oysters, and conch (snail). Some were a hit and some were a miss. The freshwater prawns were surprisingly not as good as expected. However, their crab legs were super delish and you can even get them to boil it for you so they’re hot instead of cold!
I gotta admit, the tacos here were also really good. You can choose from different meat options and I think I had 2 or 3 of these!
Make sure to save room for dessert!
My fiance and I came before they switched to dinner so we got the “Weekday Brunch” price at $44.99/pp USD. Score!! This was back in 2019 though so I’m not sure if prices have increased since then.
