    Hi Jules…been watching your videos since the first time I went to Vegas 2 years ago…keep up the good work!! I typically stick with the Caesar’s Properties. Are you going to be doing updates on Spice Market, Carnival World and Le Village Buffet anytime soon? I know how quickly the quality can change, as you always remind us….

      Hello Ricky πŸ™‚ Yes I should do a video of that super-expensive buffet. Not too easy to do because I like to avoid being noticed (it makes things natural and real) but I’ll see what I can do πŸ™‚ Don’t hesitate to remind me over and over! πŸ™‚

      Hello Christopher sorry for the delay πŸ™ Not exactly from the Stratosphere, but from SLS, where Sahara stood. It’s across the street, roughly speaking. Thanks for your kind words !:)

    Jules, will you please redo your “Grumpy Walk” video? I see in other videos where you say that they have improved that area of the strip.

    Also, I love all your work!

        do you ever check out the buffet at sam’s town? i used to really like it yet it to me seems to have gone way down and management seems to be ok with way over cooked new york strip roast or raw nothing in the middle just really sad and they have a person carving it that has no clue as to what the different temps should be if you ask for a rare cut they just give you what ever the next slice is from raw to dead and call it rare

          Thanks Michael for your post. I don’t usually video-review low-to-average buffets which are far from the usual tourist ‘beaten track’. However, I have visited Sam’s Town of course and I am not surprised by what you write, unfortunately. Maybe at around Christmas time I will have time to drive to ‘far-away’ Vegas buffets and video review a few πŸ˜‰

      Hi Harvey! πŸ™‚ Yes, as a matter of fact I have a brand new video walk-through of the Flamingo, which I will upload soon (I guess next, if you are interested πŸ˜‰ ) As per the Flamingo buffet, it’s almost irrelevant these day, only open for brunch midweek… But I will review it again. So many more videos are coming up!

    Hi Jules,

    Firstly thanks so much for your excellent videos, now when we research on YouTube your channel is always our first point of call! My husband and I will be coming to Vegas for Christmas this year. It’ll be my 3rd visit, his 2nd (although we’ve never been together!) We’re looking for some recommendations as to where to eat on Christmas Day itself. As it falls on a Sunday we’re thinking about Ballys Sterling brunch, however neither of us drink, do you know if they do a discount for non alcoholic drinks? If not do you think this price is still justifiable without drinking the champagne or is this a big part of the attraction (we both LOVE seafood!) Which of the other buffets are a bit “special” for Christmas Day, would be great to find somewhere with turkey and all the trimmings!

    Also we’re planning on visiting Bacchanal, Wicked Spoon, Paris buffet, Aria and a few others, what time of day over the Christmas period (we’re visiting from 19th – 27th) would be best to hit the buffet to avoid queues? Happy to do the lunch into dinner trick. Price isn’t so much of an issue, we just don’t want to queue for hours!

    Finally it also happens to be my 30th birthday on the 20th (another reason for the trip!) and I’d like to go to a la carte rather than buffet. Can you recommend somewhere that’s a bit special but not extortionate? Are there any restaurants that might give us special treatment due to the big occasion (we’re seasoned Disney travellers so used to getting the odd free cake for birthdays etc) budget would be about $150 for two people who don’t drink. Where’s your favourite place to celebrate a special occasion?

    Thanks so much in advance for your help! As a suggestion for a future video it would be great to hear from you where you think you can get the best variety over a short stay in terms of Buffett. I know most offer the usual carvery, salad, crab and shrimp etc. But we would love to get variety from our buffets (hence wicked spoon, aria for the Indian, Paris for the crepes etc) Thanks again πŸ™‚

      Hello Laura! Sorry for the delay in replying but I wanted to check a few things before giving you an answer, trying to give you the most up-to-date answer I could πŸ˜‰

      First of all, you will love Christmas in Vegas. I do, because it’s cheerful and although you can still find so many opportunities to be reminded of Christmas, it’s not in the same manner as anywhere else so even if Christmas may be a sad period for some (it can be), Vegas wipes that out adding a particularly cheerful, sunny atmosphere to everything. I talk more about this on the Christmas in Vegas page.

      Now, about Sterling Brunch; I have just updated my review (so click on the underlined words to read it) but basically, well, it really depends on how much caviar and expensive seafood you intend to eat to make the $95+ price tag worthwhile, especially if you don’t drink alcohol, which seems to be the one item which is distributed in striking abundance. The ambiance has changed from the past ‘glory years, but many are still enjoying eating there as a seafood/fish/meat treat (not much else). Because it’s a special occasion, you would have to book in advance of course and make sure that you do get a good seat, since some seating areas are not as good as others. There have been people who felt ‘left out’ once assigned to some seating areas.

      You will have to queue for any buffet for Christmas, especially Christmas lunch. I remember lining up for hours for Cosmopolitan (Wicked Spoon), wondering if it was even worth it at that point, but of course knowing that it was too late to try and get in anywhere else. Expect to line up. Don’t show up at the last minute hoping to do the lunch/dinner trick on heavy traffic days such as Christmas because you may well be disappointed. Give yourself one hour at least of ‘queueing’/lining up time.

      Exclusive restaurants may give you the opportunity of not having to queue at all by allowing you to make a reservation in advance, which is essential in most of those places on special days.

      As for the special birthday occasion, you may well be getting a free dessert or a free glass of champagne (well, mostly sparkling wine πŸ˜‰ ) in many a la carte restaurants, but Vegas is always different from any other place so it often depends on how busy they are and how much they value making a lasting impression on their customers. Occasionally they don’t care just because they assume you won’t be coming back anytime soon. Other times they do care and want you to remember that occasion for years, hoping maybe that you will post about it and spread the word.

      I don’t cover restaurants, really, because there are so many in Vegas with more popping up every week, almost! Restaurants like ‘burgers’ or ‘steak’ are average in terms of prices and quite popular, but I have seen line ups on special days and the atmosphere is very ‘busy’. Higher end restaurants of course will offer you a more relaxed and elegant experience, such as Verandah at Four Seasons (recommended if you don’t care about the cost); maybe Top of the World is a good ‘average a la carte price’ choice for a special occasion, given the views (if you secure a view table). I mention this on our best breakfasts in Vegas page and our best restaurants in Vegas page. But there are far too many good restaurants to pin you to only a few names…

      Thank you for the video suggestions and reviews suggestions. It’s a very good point and I will make a special video on that in August as well as write about it in detail in the near future. If you sign up for updates you will get the notification. Have a great weekend and don’t hesitate to write or ask more!! Jules
