MGM Grand Buffet
The MGM Grand is one of the largest hotels in Las Vegas, but the buffet is on the smaller side compared to a few others on the Strip. Hours are limited to 8 am–3 pm, starting with breakfast items in the morning and cycling in lunch bites as the day progresses. Seafood options are slim, so stick with the lox and bagel, breakfast taquitos, and red velvet pancakes. A carving station serves the heartiest fare, including a 12-hour apricot-smoked beef brisket, peppercorn crusted beef-round, and rotisserie chicken. The hazelnut tart and pecan pie are top choices for dessert. The all-you-can-drink add-on includes deer, wine, and mimosas (plus cocktails with an upgrade).
Cost: $27.99 weekdays, $36.99 weekends (Friday-Sunday). Kids 5-11 $16.99-17.99. Drink packages are $21.99-25.99.
How to book: Reservations are available via Seven Rooms with a "speed pass" upcharge.
