This was probably the best buffet I've been to because all the food selections were amazing and there was so much to choose from! The wait was really long and I thought the price was not so budget friendly. It was advertised at about $18 at the entrance, but after waiting in line for about 30 minutes it turned out... More

The selections at the El Dorado Buffet are plentiful with something for everyone. The only thing is that they close at 3 p.m. to prepare for dinner, so make sure you get there well before to enjoy all they have to offer. I have been here on different trips and have to say that the service for drinks, particularly refills,... More

This is a nice buffet but kind of spendy for breakfast. They advertise $11.99 breakfast, but you have to be a Gold card member to get that price. We ended up paying something like $23 dollars each for breakfast. Kind of pricey. Food was good, but I had to hunt for the fresh fruit and wheat toast. My hubby was... More

This is one of the cheaper buffets in Reno - not bad value considering. Fair selection of fruit and salad vegetables, reasonable selection of hot dishes, egg station. Service was OK. They only had one type of roll (that I saw), no breads... Coffee was weak and unimpressive. There are better (if slightly pricier) options in Reno.

Food was average for a buffet. Nothing special or worth the price. Will probably not go there again.

I have only had the breakfast buffet but it was awesome! So many choices besides the standard breakfast fare (i.e. eggs, bacon, sausage, etc.), fruits, cereals, ham, chorizo, Eggs Benedict, omelets and the list goes on and on. Clean and well run.

Such a huge selection we always end up overeating. Quite fabulous. Something for everyone. Love the selection of hand carved meats. Gelato bar and desserts are great they make the best banana bread. Ribs are one of my favourites.

Great breakfast buffet selection with a hint of American, Asian & Mexican cuisines. The omelette station is the star of the show.

This is absolutely the BEST buffet in Reno. If you go at about 10:30am you enjoy the best of both breakfast/lunch. The Buffet employees are very attentive and will take care of any special requests. It's the only meal you will need to eat--the day you go.
