A Brief History
The real history of Harrah’s began with the Holiday casino, which featured a small riverboat theme. This was way back in 1973. But then the name changed to Harrah’s in 1992, and by 1997 the changes included a complete renovation of the hotel. It was changed to a more modern Mardi Gras and Carnival theme. It’s not really what you would call a fancy hotel, and you can say the same of the Buffet.
Officially, it’s called “Flavors, the Buffet” but everybody else just calls it Harrah’s buffet. It’s for the convenience of the gamblers as it’s located at the casino floor. It’s also located near the exit doors, so people aren’t tempted to leave the premises just yet.
What They’re Famous For
The place isn’t exactly famous per se, but it is well-known for its middle-of-the-road moderation. The interior design is mostly functional, though it offers an open design that helps you relax more comfortably. What’s more relaxing is that the prices are quite affordable, even as the buffet dishes are quite filling.
They’re open from 8AM to 9PM, and the breakfasts cost $21 on weekdays. Lunch goes for $25 while dinners go for $31. The weekend seafood brunch will cost you $28, and if you want all you can drink champagne to go with your brunch it will cost you just an additional $7. Dinners on Saturdays and Sundays go for $34.
Just keep in mind that the prices may not include the 8.25% sales tax. Kids pay exactly $10 less, so at least you get a discount. You can also buy a “Buffet of Buffets” pass from Caesars Entertainment, which gives you a 24-hour unlimited buffet pass. This isn’t just for Flavors, however, as it allows you to eat at the other Caesars Entertainment buffets.
Why Eat Here?
You come here because the prices are reasonable and the food is good, plus you do get plenty of variety. For the most part, they offer standard fare so if you have a hankering for something familiar you can probably find it. It’s just that here the food is prepared more elaborately than what you get back home.
The breakfast fare is pretty much standard. You can get bacon and sausage, eggs, pancakes, Belgian waffles, and strawberry crepes. For lunch and dinner, you have 8 main stations to choose from.
The Italian station offers different pizzas, ravioli, penne, lasagna, and spaghetti. Again, these are traditional comfort foods. On weekends, you can also enjoy linguine and clams.
The salad station is called “Fresh”. The regular lettuce is joined by mixed greens, 8 varieties of salad dressings, and the usual condiments. You can also pick pre-made salads, including a cucumber salad, a Greek olive and artichoke salad, and a broccoli salad.
The “Ole” station provides you with your favorite Mexican dishes. These include chips and taco shells with ground beef or chicken fajitas along with the usual toppings. Other options include pulled pork slopes and chicken tamales.
Strangely enough, this station is where you’ll find the barbecue pork ribs. It also even comes with the soup selections, among which you can try the clam chowder and chicken posole.
The Splash Section houses the seafood, and here you really do need to get your share of the crab legs. Along with the other typical options, here you’ll also find Marinated green lip mussels from New Zealand and Cajun EZ-Peel Shrimp.
The Asian station is quite simple and at first glance there’s nothing fanciful about it either. Of course there’s sushi. You can also get pork buns, Chinese dumplings, Singapore noodle dish, steamed jasmine rice, and pepper steak with an option for plum sauce.
But here you can also find tiny “shooter” dishes that offer a nice break from the usual options. You can try the orange scallop shooter with cranberry sauce, though you should also try the seaweed shooter.
The modest carving station provides basic fare like turkey and prime rib, though you can also get kielbasa sausage. On each side of this station you have even more options, with many standard dishes like mashed potatoes with brown gravy, green beans, and mac n’ cheese. But you can also try the waffle fries, the house made buttermilk fried chicken, and the popcorn shrimp.
The dessert section also offers plenty of options, and if you’re a cupcake fan you’ll love the huge selection. The beverage section has the new Pepsi dispenser, with a hundred possible flavors. Of course, you also can get your usual juices, coffees, and teas, and there’s milk too.
At first glance the place doesn’t seem special. But with the great prices and the filling familiar options, it seems like you’ll always be satisfied—and that’s what makes it really special.
