Nurse your hangover at a Las Vegas buffet
Bellagio’s fountains, the mesmerizing magic of Cirque du Soleil, the thousands betting at the blackjack tables—Las Vegas doesn’t do anything small. So it makes sense that the most lavish, over-the-top, and stupefyingly satisfying hotel buffets in the world can be found on the Las Vegas Strip. Vegas buffet history began in the 1940s, when hotel owners used them to keep high-spending gamblers inside the casino. Some of those pioneer buffets featured quantity of food over quality. But today’s high-end buffets—at the Bellagio, the Wynn, and the Rio—dazzle with showmanship and superb food.
