It has so many wonderful foods (I thought of it when I saw all the foods on this salad bar--the casino buffet actually has more). They have steaks, crab, salad fixings galore, sushi, stuffed avocadoes, all kinds of breads, luscious desserts, you name it! The only thing you won't have is guys walking around with skewers of meat, but you will get a fantastic meal!

Barb - what a great meal! I've been to the one in Charlotte. While fun I don't think it remotely compared to what you had.

Thanks for basically taking us all along on your trip too! What fun!

If they have entertainment, Samba dancers alone may be well worth the price of the meal.
