Las Vegas isn't all about casinos, bars, and women anymore, today it's a city full of amazing opportunities for the whole family to have fun! If you decide to bring your kids to Vegas, you may have some tough choices to make for attractions and entertainment, but dining should not be a worry, especially after this helpful blog!
Las Vegas is a paradise for buffets, and kids (and parents) love the endless options at buffets, you just have to choose the right one!
Best [Buffet] in Town
Bacchanal Buffet - When in Rome, eat as the Romans do, when in Vegas, eat at a buffet! Bacchanal Buffet is a Vegas classic for all ages, the seemingly mile-long buffet located within Caesar’s Palace. This is considered to be the Strip’s largest buffet, the entire stretch offering everything from homemade donuts to authentic dim sum, they even boast the freshest seafood selection! If you are here in the morning with the kiddos be sure to try the Red Velvet Pancakes, you won’t regret it!
Le Village Buffet - Travel to Paris, without even leaving Vegas! Le Village Buffet, located within the Paris Hotel and Casino, is a unique and really delicious buffet option for all ages, though kids always seem to love the French village set up more than the adults. Try food from the five provinces of France, each food station boasting delicious options, especially when it comes to breakfast. Try the eggs with lox, fresh pastries, or omelet and crepe station before you go!
Gordon Ramsey’s BurGR - Welcome to Gordon Ramsey’s very own Las Vegas specialty burger bar, the best place for you to enjoy a casual, colorful, and modern meal with your kids. Here you can enjoy open flame Adler wood cooked Angus and marvelously themed sides, almost every option here appealing to children. Try the Hell’s Kitchen Burger, Maui Onion Rings, and Chocolate Pudding Shake for a really tasty meal while here!
Kid Classics -
Grimaldi's Pizza - This may not be Brooklyn, but you and your kids can still enjoy that coal brick oven pizza only found at Grimaldi's, at the Palazzo Resort. Enjoy the unique, smokey, and crispy taste of traditional pizza pie, the dough, mozzarella, and sauce made fresh daily. Try a white with pesto pizza, Italian sausage, or maybe just go for some authentic cannoli or tiramisu.
Egg + I - For breakfast, your kids will love Egg and me, the 1988 Vegas local eatery that joined forces in 2005 with Egg Works. This is considered to be one of the best breakfast (and lunch) spots in town, always pleasing the younger crowd with its excellent choices. Try the eggs benny, breakfast burrito, or steak and eggs before you go, or stay for lunch and choose from any delicious daily soup and sandwich specials. Be aware that this restaurant closes at 3 pm.
Hash House A Go Go - For some reason, Vegas really knows how to do breakfast (probably all the late-night gamblers who need a morning revival), and Hash House A Go Go is no exception! Here you and your children will find farm-fresh comfort food with a fun new twist, some of the favorites being the Sage Fried Chicken and Waffles and Corned Beef Hash. Kids always go crazy for the Bacon Waffles, as well.
Just Desserts -
Serendipity 3 - While this establishment isn’t quite the original, it definitely tastes just as good, the New York original serving up all the same delicious treats. Try the iconic frozen hot chocolate, Reuben, or only in Las Vegas Strip Steak Sandwich. If you are feeling particularly wealthy today, or maybe you just won big at the casino, you can treat your kids to the $1000 Golden Opulence Sundae, the 1 foot tall, 5 scoops deep, and 23 Karat gold-dusted ice cream sundae that comes complete with extremely rare Venezuelan cocoa beans
Shake Shack - Another NYC classic that you’re kids will love is the Manhattan original Shake Shack. Along the strip, right outside the NY Hotel, fittingly, you will find this eclectic eatery full of all the best burgers, fries, shakes, and frozen custard. Enjoy all-natural Angus on a grilled potato bun smothered with Shack Sauce, or skip the food and hit the actual shakes (frozen custard concretes), one of the most popular being the Shack Attack, with chocolate truffles and cookie dough.
Kids Eat Free -
Rainforest Cafe - Each evening your kids can eat for only $1.99 at the tropical and tasty Rainforest Cafe, with the purchase of an adult entree, of course. Located at the MGM Grand you will find this completely authentic rainforest environment, complete with several kid-friendly classic dishes, regular thunderstorms, a surrounding tropical aquarium, and even a chance to try the Sparkling Volcano Dessert (because what’s better than chocolate cake and way too many sparklers?).
(Essentials like IHOP, Denny’s, Fazoli's, etc, also offer amazing ‘eat free’ deals for kids daily).
