Sam’s Town Firelight Buffet
At a Glance
What is it?
A bright, open, and airy buffet offering fairly standard food and very decent prices.
Where is it?
At Sam’s Town on the east side of Las Vegas.
What kind of food is served?
Sam’s Town knows their audience and so you won’t find anything too adventurous here. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but if you’re looking for exotic flavors or ethnic selections look elsewhere. What they have is what you’d expect at a buffet plus rotisserie chicken, a few ethnic dishes (Chinese, Mexican), and a terrific stand-alone dessert station with hand-scooped ice cream.
What is the atmosphere like?
The soaring ceilings, natural light, and park-side (next to their enclosed atrium) dining combine to create one of the most appealing buffet rooms in town. Unique lighting changes during the day to create different moods. The wall of flames behind the buffet stations is a pretty cool touch.
How is the service?
Fast and friendly.
What are the prices like?
One of the better bargains in town. Dinner is going to cost you around $15-$25 (higher end for theme nights like “all you can eat seafood and prime rib”) while you can get a full and hearty lunch for about $10.
What else do I need to know?
Get a players’ club card and they’ll chop off a few bucks from the already low rates.
What’s the bottom line?
Not the most exciting buffet in town but darned good, especially for the cost.
