Don't get me wrong, as there is nothing that I love more than a good buffet, as it's fun to choose your pleasure, mix and match, and "pig out." Most Nevada casinos feature a buffet, but casinos, photos and buffets rarely make a match, as most Nevada casinos frown on photos. Nugget Resort Casino, and the Rotisserie Buffet is very different, as photos are fine, and the food is good, and there is plenty of it.
As with all of reviews that I publish, I have no affiliation with the restaurant reviewed, and there is no monetary gain on my part, as I am simply a person who likes to eat, and I love to write-up, and publish my dining experiences.
Photo: You have to wander around in the immense Nugget Casino Resort to find the Rotisserie Buffet, but the exercise will prove helpful, as when you arrive, you'll be able to "pig out," and stuff yourself full. Today is Tuesday, March 06, 2018, and we're "late birds," as we've arrived just before the 2 o'clock closing for he lunch buffet. Dinner starts at 5 o'clock.
You're greeted by a friendly cashier, and you'll pay for your meal, then be seated, and after that, it's up to you, as everything after that is on the "house," including main dishes, salad, soup, appetiser and desert. Hey, you're at a Nevada casino buffet, so it's time to enjoy yourself!
Photo: The food is in the center of the large room, and there are two dining rooms, located on each side of the buffet. They're decorated and seated nearly identically in what best could be described as "French country ambiance." At nearly closing time for the lunch buffet, the dining room is lightly seated, but you won't be "thrown out" at closing time, as the staff is very friendly and patient.
Photographs are generally frowned upon in casinos, and since Rotisserie Buffet is located within a casino, yet has it's own separate space, I asked the staff about photography within the restaurant. No problem!
Photo: You can get an idea of how extensive the food "line-up" is from looking at this photo, with the staff member walking towards me. The roast beef carving station is in the center, background of the photo. This is quite a buffet!
Photo: At the "salad" end of the buffet, a friendly staff member is replenishing the endless supply of fresh lettuce, green onions, and other tasty and healthful lunch options.
Photo: My friend and dining buddy, Robert Kipperman, headed over to the roast beef station, where the friendly server will carve you as many slices as you desire. When you have your roast beef slices on your plate, au jus is next. After taking this photo, I grabbed a plate and followed Robert, as there is nothing better than a hot plate of roast beef for lunch.
Photo: This is a very small portion of the "main dish" line-up, but the star of the show is the bacon-wrapped liver and onions to the far left of the photo. I must admit that I wasn't a fan of the red cabbage, as it was too sweet for my taste, as I really don't have a "sweet tooth." Unlike my friend Robert, I skipped desert.
Photo: This is about half of the very extensive salad bar. I love salad, so I actually enjoyed two helpings of the amazingly-fresh and delicious salad choices. Yes, that's crazy when you're enjoying a all-you-can-eat-buffet to eat so much salad, but I suppose I'm crazy. There are many varieties of dressing offered, but I chose Ranch, and I can attest this is probably the best Ranch dressing that I've ever enjoyed, so I stocked up on it, and definitely stoked my calorie count.
Photo: My friend Robert, likes me, enjoys salad! He's an Air Force veteran, and I'm a Navy veteran, so we're both used to fine dining. Robert and I both made good use of the salad bar.
Photo: Robert snaps my photo as I prepare to enjoy my first, of three courses, on this fine early Tuesday afternoon in March.
Photo: First course: Roast beef, Italian sausage, potato salad fried potatoes, mashed potatoes and gravy. If you haven't guessed, I LOVE potatoes.
Photo: Second course: Green salad, with perhaps the best Ranch dressing that I've ever had the pleasure to enjoy, fried chicken, pot roast, fried potatoes - with gravy - and red cabbage. I can't say I was a fan of the red cabbage, as it was too sweet for me, as I do not have a "sweet tooth."
Photo: Third course: Mashed potatoes and gravy, salsbury steak, baked perch fillet, along with another helping of salad. May I say all of the food we enjoyed was delicious?
After enjoying three plates of delicious lunch at this wonderful buffet, I was full. Completely.
At $11.95 plus tax, the lunch buffet at Rotisserie Buffet isn't cheap, but it's an outstanding value, as the food is delicious, plentiful, and you're free to choose, and you're free to mix and match. Not to mention coffee, tea or a wide variety of soft drinks is included with your meal. The "clincher" is that the restaurant is "photo friendly," for a dedicated camera freak, and a "photo-foodie" such as me.
At Rotisserie Buffet, you get your money's worth. If you don't leave with a full stomach and a smile on your face... I don't know what to say...
