Sometimes, but I don't eat large meals, I prefer to eat out and take home food for the next day, which you can't do at buffets.

But I do like going to Vegas, and pigging out at the various buffets there.

Too much waste at buffets. I hate to see it. I can't eat that much at a time. Their prices are based on you eating your share. I can't! It's great sampling so many things but I dunno. I can see it's great for some though!

I love really good buffets but they are few and far between. I found this Thai food buffet in Vancouver and it was awesome I tell ya. I was so good I almost ate myself to death. I was heading across from Texas to La on that highway that runs along the gulf. There was a town that billed it's self as the rice capital of the world, I forget it's name. Any way we came across this truckstop, casino and Cajun buffet. The food was just out of this world. It was so good I'd drive all the way there again just to eat and that's a long way from Canada. I ate even more than I did at the Thai place if that's possible. One last one. There is a breakfest buffet in the Timberline Lodge up at the top of Mt. Hood in Oregon. It ruined me for life. I've always loved bacon but I never would have believed that there was bacon as good as there is there. The bacon was infused with maple sugar all the way through the piece and there seemed to be course black pepper inside the bacon. It was heavenly. Bacon has never been the same for me since but I'm still on the hunt for it's equal.

PS, that Lodge is so amazing, the only place in the USA where they ski year round. It's like no place I have ever been before or since.

I like Chinese buffets, especially the nicer ones that cost more but have higher budget items. There is one near us that runs about $15 but in addition to Chinese food they have snow crab legs, crawfish, oysters, frog legs, snails, all kinds of shrimp, made to order sushi, a Mongolian bbq grill, etc. I love that place.

Sure they aren't the highest quality or biggest crab legs and stuff but for all-you-can-eat it ain't a bad deal.

I'm kind of in between about buffets. We used to go to the local Golden Corral, but I have a hard time with the kind of mentality that goes on in those kinds of places. I've seen more than one person shove my kids aside so they can get the next piece of steak that is ready.

I do try to go to places like Captain Georges when we go on vacation. Seafood is expensive so getting the chance to try different kinds for one price is nice! Plus it helps to have choices for the kids who are picky eaters. But I agree with the other poster, it is hard to eat enough to make buffets worth the money.

I love Breakfast Buffets, I can eat about half my weight in Bacon alone, it's like a drug.
My second choice would be a chinese buffet, I can try things I wouldnt normally order for takeout.
Problem is.. i'm a spoiled rotton New Yorker and it's very hard to come by good chinese where I live now..
When a Navtive floridian says XXX has good chinese, chances are it sucks.. It's tough just finding a good egg roll here..

Not any good ones around here. I do enjoy doing one on occassion; like Reno or LV.
I would love to go on a cruise and really enjoy some of those buffet's.
Oh well, maybe someday.

You just aren't creative enough. I watched a women fill a large (and real) Louis Vuitton handbag with pizza at a pizza buffet once!!:confused :
I figured that's how she afforded a $600 purse, because she fed her family for a week off a $6 buffet! A few weeks of that, and she'd pay for the purse.

I love a good brunch buffet, but they can be very hard to find. I haven't found one here in OKC yet. Most of the time I feel like at buffets you are sacrificing quality for quantity.
