Caesars Palace has long been famous in the minds of people who have never even been to Las Vegas, as its name and reputation conjures images of Ancient Roman decadence. So it seems apt that the buffet here is called the Bacchanal Buffet, in honor of the notorious bacchanalia festival. Las Vegas has long been known for its buffets, but this is the mother of all buffets.
If you’re a foodie, then entering this buffet is like a shopper entering the West Edmonton Mall or the Dubai Mall. The whole place seems like an endless stretch of food options that will simply boggle the mind and overwhelm the senses. With 9 distinct restaurants from Japanese to Italian, and about 500 dishes to choose from, it’s widely regarded as the most decadent eat-all-you-can buffet experience in the city. Since this is Las Vegas, that probably means the most decadent buffet in the whole darn world.

The real history of the Bacchanal Buffet starts with Caesars Palace. Since it was established way back in 1966, it has achieved its status as a Las Vegas iconic landmark. The purpose of the place was to provide a sense of what affluent people enjoyed during the height of the decadent Ancient Roman Empire, and that’s evident with the architecture and the décor of the place.
So it seems just right that the Bacchanal Buffet offers a list of dishes that seems almost immoral if you’re in any way socially conscious. The buffet opened in 2012 when the previous Lago Buffet underwent a “wall to wall” renovation”. USA Today quickly heralded it as the Best Buffet for 2012 and 2013. It has also earned high ratings from the Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Las Vegas Weekly.
But you don’t need industry experts to tell you just how awesome the Bacchanal Buffet really is. You don’t even need to be a foodie. Its fame has reached even the most casual of diners, and today it’s the buffet to which all others are compared.
What They’re Famous For
It’s famous for the sheer multitude of options you have available here. Coming here and choosing your dishes feels like you’re visiting an endless stretch of culinary options—and everything is just mouth-wateringly good. Here you have at least 500 or so different dishes to choose from, and every day you get a different menu.
In one location, you have 9 distinct restaurants to choose from. Then there’s a team of highly specialized chefs, who offer 15 or so daily chef’s specials added to the menu. These specials are always different, since they depend on the season, the available products, or even just the fancies of the chefs themselves. Most of the dishes are even prepared right in front of you while the team of chefs works together like a well-oiled machine.
The place itself is quite different from all the other buffet settings you may have encountered in the past. Remember, the purpose here is to offer the decadent Roman lifestyle so everything here seems larger than life. Even the place itself is huge, as it can seat about 600 guests. The ambience of the place is extremely modern, and elements of glass, wood, and steel all combine for an utterly contemporary feel.
Since the number of options here can easily overwhelm you, let’s help you out with some undoubtedly great choices. You can start with the truffled mushroom soup, which is simply divine. Then you can get the barbecue brisket, the meatballs and crispy Brussels sprouts, and the 5-bean salad. Then afterwards you can relax with the red velvet pancakes.
Or you can just pick whatever tickles your fancy, and you can opt for dishes you’ve never tried before. You’re now in buffet’s true capital—eat whatever you like and eat all you can.
