This past week, my niece graduated from UNLV. So after the ceremony, we all went out to celebrate.
Since we were a large group with everyone having different tastes, we decided to go to a buffet where everyone would be able to find something they wanted.
We decided on the Studio B Buffet at the M Resort for their dinner buffet. I used to go to the M Resort all the time when I lived on that side of town, but it had to be at least four years since I had been to the Studio B Buffet there.
I used to think that the buffet at the M was the best off-the-Strip buffet in town. I can tell you I still do all these years later.
We went on a weeknight, so the dinner buffet was $24.99. If you go Friday, Saturday or Sunday the dinner buffet is their Seafood buffet and it’s priced at $41.99. The buffet has something for everyone. For myself, I started with a nice plate of chilled shrimp along with some sushi and tempura fried vegetables. I always start with light items like shrimp, crab and veggies as you get to try really good items without filling up and leaving plenty of room for the rest of the buffet. Never start with prime rib or pasta. That’s a rookie mistake as you will fill up way too soon.
Next, I went over to their fresh pizza station. I skipped the pizza but did try a piece of a calzone. The calzone had just come out of the oven and was so good that I went back for another piece. I also tried one of the pasta dishes in a vodka cream sauce which was very good as well.
Now it was time to hit the carving station and I had some turkey and prime rib. The turkey was very good as it was not overcooked like it is at so many buffets around town. There is nothing worse than dry turkey. The prime rib was above-average quality, especially for a $24.99 priced buffet.
There was also a nice selection of Asian foods, including Dim Sum offerings.
Be sure to save room for dessert because the Studio B Buffet has one of the best dessert selections of any buffet on or off the Strip. You can create your own ice cream cookie sandwich as you pick the type of warm cookies you want, then pick your favorite ice cream flavor and the attendant creates your fresh sandwich.
There is also a coffee bar station at the end of the dessert line where you can have a gourmet coffee, cappuccino or espresso made to order.
One of the things that has always set The Studio B Buffet apart was the fact that at no extra charge you could order beer and wine with your meal.
All in all, The Studio B is one of the best values for the money on or off the Strip. As a buffet and casino that caters more to locals, this is, in my opinion, clearly the best off-Strip buffet that we have in Las Vegas. I give Studio B Buffet 3.75 Forks.
