The buffet at the Rio is much better than what you get at The Palms. Some say it's one of the best. It's almost a work out getting to see all of the stations of food. The place is gigantic. Food from almost every nation and too much of it. This one costs more. I'm not sure if I really like buffet, since after looking at all of the food, you get full. It's amazing at how some people will go straight to the crab and the more pricey stuff that you may not eat often, and some go straight to all the cheap fried food. Onion rings, fries, etc. Next to me say three girls who were partying, and all they ate was fried food and the bad Mexican food selection.
