We used to have a restaurant years ago in the next town that was strictly a buffet. We used to go frequently. Now I don't know if there's any place in the area that even has a buffet. I don't go out to eat anymore.

Can't think of any that are buffet here. I used to love going to them many many moons ago when living in Hong Kong. All the major hotels on the island had fantastic buffets at lunchtime. Here very occasionally one of the pubs might have a seafood buffet night, and they are always popular. Can't remember the last time I saw one advertised. There is a lawn bowls club in town that has a Chinese food all you can eat menu, and I am thinking that might be a buffet, but have never been there.

Hey anyone wants to cook me food, buffet or otherwise, I am very happy to eat it....smile!

Susanne I think everyone has cut back on eating out as it is so expensive, the way the world economies are at the moment. We paid a stupid amount of money last weekend for 6 adults and one bub to have Thai food for a birthday meal out. They charged $30 for the bub and all she had was a couple of spoons of rice off her mums plate. Don't think we will be eating out again for a long time.

I was going to say that the only place you have a good buffet is Vegas - We go about every 2 months to visit our friends - and between their Players Cards - you can eat forever and not spend much

And the local hotels for people that live there are great.

Wow I have never heard of an all day buffet pass. That could be interesting. Love your idea of staying and taking advantage of it. We are going on a mini stay to a cottage soon, but not eating out. I will just take some of our favourite foods with us and cook in. They do have wood fired bbqs but not sure I want to play around with that.

Wow that sounds like you really have fun visiting Vegas . Something to look forward to every few months is really nice. Nice to catch up with friends too. I love anywhere where you get good quality and good value.

Part of it is money but part of it for me is also having the IBS. We're more inclined to get a burger and eat at home or go to a local Mexican place and get takeout.

We used to go to a casino called Jerry's in North Las Vegas. A New York steak dinner was $4.99 and a full breakfast was $1.99. At that time it was actually cheaper to eat out than to eat at home. Of course, it was 1969/70. *rofl*

We don't have any close to us other than the Chinese place in town that has a buffet.
