When the pandemic started in March 2020, buffets were among the first to close with their long lines and tight confines. In a city with more than 70 buffets, especially inside casinos, they were among the hardest hit with many remaining closed, waiting for a time when more tourists justified reopening. So when one returns to service, it’s cause for celebration. The latest, The Buffet at Luxor, reopens on September 1.
The buffet on the lower level of the pyramid-shaped resort features a 30-foot salad bar, a carving station, an omelet station, homemade pizza station, and specialties from around the world. Head to the dessert station for baked pastries and sugar-free desserts. The buffet does not require reservations and children under 4 eat free. Once it returns, it plans to be open Wednesday through Sunday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
By September 8, the city will have 10 buffets inside casinos back in action. Market Place Buffet returned at the Rampart Casino on August 26. Others that reopened include The Buffet at Excalibur, The Buffet at Wynn, Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace, Garden Buffet at South Point, Wicked Spoon at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Circus Buffet at Circus Circus, and the MGM Grand Buffet. The all-you-can-eat Garden Court Buffet reopens daily with brunch from 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. at Main Street Station, as well as dinner on Friday and Saturday from 4 to 9 p.m. on September 8.
