We had such high hopes for this buffet but after reading the reviews I was skeptical. I had been wanting to eat here for a year so we decided to give it a shot. It missed the mark. When we arrived for dinner at about...More

The buffet at the Rio, so famous for its seafood, is seriously overrated and over priced. Be prepared for a $20 up charge if you want the seafood included (appx $53). The regular buffet has very little unbreaded (grilled) foods - heavy on Asian. The...More

We've had better buffets, especially at the price they were charging. Our complaint was that we felt like there should have been a better selection when it came to certain categories of international and nation wide flavors.

Overpriced mediocre buffet. Cold dishes, most brought from the back vs. cooking it up at each station as they did when it was the best. No lines & maybe a few dozen diners at lunch, so the word is out already! Visited this casino &...More

Save your money and search for a cheaper buffet. The food here is average at best, even though the buffet is touted as one of the best. Even more disappointing is the seafood buffet which costs an additional $20! Almost every other buffet I've eaten...More

We haven't been here in years and we were pleasantly surprised at what Rio has done to their buffet. They remodeled and expanded. And a great job at it. The food was very good. I remember they were good back then too. The price seems...More

My husband and I came to the buffet before the Penn & Teller show. The up charge for the seafood portion was ok - not worth the entire $$ deserts on the other hand - amazing! Also can't beat the $13 ad on for all...More

We had been there several times in the past but when we went in May, I was very disappointed with the food. We tried using a 2 for 1 coupon and they argued with us saying it wasnt their coupon. We had to pay full price
