Sure, you can go to Wicked Spoon in Las Vegas, Nevada for a great buffet. But if you’re living in California (and especially in LA), then you don’t really have to go that far for a terrific buffet experience. Here are some buffet-style restaurants that you can visit instead:
Choices, The Buffet at Pala Casino Spa Resort, Pala, CA
The place is aptly named, since you’re likely to find more 200 different hot and cold food options here. The choices generally include Italian, Mexican, and Asian cuisines, along with various American favorites.
Come here with plenty of your friends, and just enjoy. Choices can handle up to 625 guests at a time.
Hibachi City Buffet, Palm Desert, CA
If you’re looking for a buffet lunch, then see if you’re near the Hibachi City Buffet. It specializes in lots of different Asian-influenced dishes, and they also have a Mongolian grill. You don’t have to just eat there, either, as you can just weigh the food you want and eat them to go.
M Grill, Los Angeles, CA
If you’re in Koreatown and you’re craving for a buffet, this is where you need to go. You’ll find plenty of meat options, and you won’t have to pay too much with their Brazilian-style meat on sticks. Call ahead if you’re in want of seafood, and they’ll prepare salmon for your entrée. Of course, there’s also a salad bar here.
Great Plaza Buffet, San Diego, CA
There are usually more than 150 different dishes here for you to try, though it seems you even have more options than that. Just about everything seems to be here, starting from appetizers all the way to desserts. The variety ranges from sushi to pizza, so there’s bound to be something you really like. Some groups including seniors may also enjoy some discounts.
Rahel Ethiopian Vegan Cuisine, Los Angeles, CA
LA sure is different, as you might find not find many other cities with plenty of Ethiopian restaurants. What makes this different is that it’s not just Ethiopian, but vegan as well. That’s not really a common pairing, even in LA.
You’ll find the buffet served here every day. But on Sundays, they also offer a glass of Ethiopian kombucha so the food goes down even more nicely.
Fiery Hot Pot Buffet, San Francisco, CA
They’re only open from Tuesdays to Sundays, so it seems they’re like the Boomtown Rats—they don’t like Mondays, either. But then again, they’re offer an “all you can eat buffet” from 5pm to 9m on the days they’re open.
Take out is also possible, but you may have to wait up to 2 hours for some dishes, since they may be made to order. So, it may be better for you to eat and enjoy even as you’re waiting.
Dekkadance, Los Angeles, CA
First go to downtown LA, then find the Intercontinental Hotel. You’ll find Dekkadance inside, where there’s a little something for just about everyone. You get plenty of hot foods along with lots of seafood and desserts, to go with that great view of the city. Everything’s great here, and they really set a high standard for every other restaurant in town.
La Paz, Calabasas, CA
On Fridays, the place (La Paz), is full of people who work in the nearby areas, since the lunch buffet for that day is “all you can eat” and the price is ridiculously affordable.
On Sundays, it’s more of a family place. Lots of families come here for the Sunday brunch. You’ll get breakfast staples like omelets and pancakes, but there’s also plenty of Mexican dishes (including seafood).
