You are on a budget and you want the cheapest meal in town? The budget buffets can do the job. The food is average but it is cheap and you can eat as much as you want. The Las Vegas buffet was once the cheapest food option around but these days plenty of buffets have gone gourmet and that has driven the average price through the roof. Prices are subject to change and you can bet that these prices will go up.
I'm sure you are a big fan of buffets but you should know that in Las Vegas you can have good, affordable meals that do not require you to sacrifice quality over quantity. The Las Vegas buffets that were dirt cheap are not in abundance like they once were. There is still plenty of cheap food in Las Vegas and I have compiles a quick list of 77 of those options just in case you're hungry.
A Few More Las Vegas Cheap Food Options That Also Should Be on Your Radar:
- Fulton Food Hall at Harrah's Las Vegas
- Shake Shack at The Park Las Vegas
- Flour & Barley at The LINQ
- The Food Court at Caesars Palace
- Two Food Courts at Venetian /Palazzo
This is a list of Las Vegas buffets with details on all the buffets found on the Las Vegas strip.
Possibly the best deal on the Las Vegas strip when it comes to eating at buffets can be experienced at Excalibur and Luxor Las Vegas.
These two resorts are connected by a walkway so if you are staying at either of them or at Mandalay Bay you never have to walk outside to visit the buffets. They offer an all-day pass that includes The Buffet at Excalibur as well as The Buffet at Luxor Las Vegas for all day eating for one price.
Adults (Monday–Thursday): $39.99
Children (Monday –Thursday): $26.99
Adults (Friday–Sundays): $44.99
Children (Friday–Sundays): $26.99
This price is really low when you consider that you can eat all day long for $40. Mind you, the quality is that of a buffet but it is worth it if you just need to sustain your wild lifestyle and food is not a major issue.

Breakfast in Las Vegas is typically the best-priced meal for buffets and if you consider the cost of coffee and a pastry at most overpriced coffee shops you might be better off sitting down for a bigger meal even if you skip the long feed line. Starbucks Coffee shops are in abundance in Las Vegas but when you do the math you'll see that a cheap buffet breakfast is still better priced than just coffee. Plus, you get unlimited bacon!
If you do not eat big consider pizza slices at Slice of Vegas, Pin-Up Pizza or Secret Pizza at Cosmopolitan instead of a cheap buffet.
If you are just looking for a convenient meal that is cheap, quick and easy try Pink's Hot Dogs, Beerhaus at The Park or Lobster ME at Venetian.
If you are traveling with a big group, places like Maggiano's in the Fashion Show Mall, Buca di Beppo at Excalibur and Carmines in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, all serve big family-style feasts that offer a lot of food for a great price.
