    The higher end casinos, yes. The el cheapo joints, not so much.

    I usually don't like buffets. I don't like watching people behave like gluttons and mouth breath all over the food.
    All behold that fancy strutting peacock, the bake sale diva...

    True enough even in my day. There was a wild west themed place far from the strip that didn't have very good food. I am surely dating myself but we used to line up at the hog trough at the Circus Circus Buffet (not sure if that qualifies as a high end place). I once was part of some AF cops TDY to Nellis (well near Nellis, closer to Indian Springs) training with an army unit and on the way in we had a day in Vegas so we all pigged out at the CCB. For about three weeks, living on MRE's, we would all commiserate about the CCB. When the TDY was over the AF OIC gave us two days in Vegas for 'debriefing'. The first night we all rushed to CCB, ate about a quarter of what we wanted to and rushed back to the hotel, many of us yakking. I guess it's a lesson on being careful what you wish for.

    I was there for four yrs. Left in 2012. Old school was our favorite place when it opened. My wife and I loved going to whiskey dicks as well.
