Vegas Bright favorite guest writer Iun Hockley returns with a vengeance and reviews Garden Court Buffet at Main Street Station.
Aside from the gambling, debauchery, drinking, party atmosphere and big pretty lights, there’s one thing Vegas is famous for: buffets. After many nights of drunken gambling, partying, debauching and staring at pretty lights horizontally from the sidewalk, I can promise that one thing your body needs the next day is a big, uncomplicated buffet breakfast.
Fortunately, the vast array of choices in the city has you nicely covered. But to my mind, one that really sticks out is the Garden Court Buffet at Main Street Station in downtown. It’s not just the price, the quality, the service and the range of options available, it’s… well yeah, it’s all those things combined together in one delicious package that costs between $9 – $15 dollars depending on the time of day and whether or not they are setting out a special menu.
The variety of options on offer easily matches most buffets on the strip, with pizzas, burritos, country-fried steaks, a carvery station, a salad section, Chinese- style cuisine and cold cuts. There’s more, much more, but on a hungover morning, I tend to home in on the carbs, proteins, and anything covered in cheese. You will have to go there yourselves to discover the pleasing variety of high-quality dishes. Drinks service is reasonably prompt even on busy days, and the waitstaff is courteous and helpful with all requests.
Of particular note for those counting their calories – by choice or circumstance- is a selection of sugar-free desserts. Virtually every regular dessert available at the dessert station has a sugar-free counterpart, which is a brilliant touch.
But wait, there’s more: Weekend brunch is only a handful of dollars more expensive and comes with champagne and expanded selection of meats. All you can drink champagne and more meat? Shut up. Take my money. Take it. Now.
For anyone staying in the Downtown area, this place is absolutely worth it as a big breakfast option, and the fact that it’ nestled in Main Street Station, one of the most characterful and best bang-for-your-buck casinos in the city can only recommend it further.
