The Caesars Palace Las Vegas Buffet is one of the affordable buffet options on the Las Vegas Strip. Caesars Palace is one of the most iconic and recognizable of the older hotel casinos in Vegas, and the buffet has perhaps not kept up with some of the newer, more luxurious hotels and resort casinos like the Bellagio and Venetian. This is not to say that you will not find an adequate spread at a reasonable price at the Caesars Palace Lago Buffet, but there are certain drawbacks including a relatively small space. The Lago Buffet menu does however include things like prime rib, shrimp, and crab legs, so if your chief concern is getting a solid buffet meal at a decent price, this may not be a bad option for you. The environment is reminiscent of an Italian lake restaurant, which does make the smallish space more comfortable.
The Caesars Palace Las Vegas Buffet is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Thursday through Monday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. The Saturday and Sunday brunch is reasonably priced and worth checking out, especially when you consider the enhanced weekend Lago Buffet menu.
Those people staying at Caesars and looking to take advantage of the low cost buffet option should not fret about not finding the traditional buffet favorites. The breakfast hour is a particularly easy time on the Vegas Strip to find a good meal and it is also the most inexpensive meal of the day at most all the buffets; at Caesars this meal costs $17.95. The Caesars Palace Las Vegas Buffet offers a nice selection of breakfast items including plenty of eggs, bacon, and sausage, as well as fresh pastries, fruit, juice, cereal, bagels, waffles, and more. If you are traveling to Vegas with your family or a crew of friends, a great way to save money and fuel up for the day is by taking advantage of any number of the buffet offerings on the Strip. Other affordable options include the MGM Grand Buffet and the Hilton Buffet.
The Saturday and Sunday Brunch is when the Lago Buffet menu is at its best by far. Enjoy fresh jumbo shrimp and crab legs, eggs Benedict, a wonderful selection of fresh-baked pastries, amongst a whole host of other delectable items. The Champagne is unlimited and you can also enjoy made to order omelets. If you are staying at the hotel and want to try the Lago Buffet out once, regardless of the price, this would definitely be the time to do so.
Some of the more gourmet options that you will encounter at the Lago Buffet are rolled out for the lunch and dinner hours. Lunch will cost you $19.95 and features a good selection of meats, salad, and desserts. Expect crab legs, sushi, and prime rib. The selection is not as large as other buffets at the major casinos on the Strip such as the Bellagio buffet, but the prices are lower here and the food is varied enough that you can enjoy a buffet spread without breaking the bank.
At $26.95, the dinner buffet at Lago is a bargain. The huge salad bar features many different salad selections as well as a range of soups, breads, and cold cuts. There are also a very nice selection of Asian dishes and specialties that include herb-crusted prime rib, steak, herb-roasted chicken, and much more. There is also a pasta station that offers a wide range of sauteed pasta dishes that you can personalize to your exact specifications, along with a selection of meat dishes from prime rib to steak.
While the Lago Buffet at Caesars is not rated as the top buffet on the Strip, the prices here are fair and the location will keep you in close proximity to the best the Strip has to offer. The Forum Shops are just around the corner, the Bellagio is accessible by sky bridge, and the Paris is nearby as well.
