Eat well (and often) at casino buffets

Jul 4, 2005 12:48 AM

Even the cheapest of the cheap still occasionally has to raise prices. While still among the lowest priced buffets on the Strip, Circus Circus has increased the daily buffet prices as follows: breakfast, $8.99; lunch, $9.99; dinner, $10.99.

Move a couple doors down and good meal bargains can still be found on the Strip at the Stardust. The Island Paradise Café serves daily Chinese lunch specials from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for just $7.95. Select from eight different entrees all served with chicken corn soup, a spring roll and fried rice.

For lunch or dinner (11 a.m. to 11 p.m.) the Island Paradise Café offers four signature specials including orange glazed chicken for $6.95, prime rib for $9.95, steak and fried shrimp for $11.95 and steak and lobster for $12.95.

The Café bargains continue into the late-night, too. Four breakfast specials are available from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. ranging from standard breakfast fare (eggs, bacon, pancakes, etc.) starting at $3.95 to steak and eggs for $4.95.

In North Las Vegas, the Barcelona Hotel & Casino serves several good 24 hour bargains including half a barbecue chicken dinner for $4.99, a ham steak and eggs special for $3.99 and a daily lunch deal — a hot dog and a beer (or substitute a soda) for $2.

Tuesday nights rock on Fremont Street this summer with free concerts sponsored by Foster’s Beer, the Plaza, Vegas Club and Golden Gate. Look for the Bruce Springsteen Tribute show with Thunder Road on Tuesday, July 12. The pre-party begins at 8 p.m. with the concert kicking off at 9 p.m. Watch for Foster’s, Miller Lite and MGD beer specials under the canopy of lights. A Rolling Stones Tribute will be featured on July 26 with the group, Sticky Fingers.

Until next time, eat well, play well, stay well.
