When you head to Sin City, you think gambling and shows. But just as important to some are the famed Las Vegas buffets. Now, in the face of the pandemic, will we see resorts put an end to the practice?
A few of the larger casino resorts have already put an end to their buffets, including Wynn. In place of the buffet they’ve built a food court. That’s not to say the buffet is dead. In fact, South Point is still running their Garden Buffet with a few adjustments. And with loosening Coronavirus restrictions in the state, they just expanded their buffet to serve brunch, lunch, and dinner every day.
Gaming historian David Schwartz recently said he believes that Las Vegas buffets will survive. “I think when it is safe, it will comeback in some form… I think because there is such an association with Vegas and buffets, that someone is going to want to keep it alive,” he said.
