Arizona Charlie's, the Gold Coast and the Eastside Cannery offer relatively inexpensive lunch and dinner buffets.

For decades, free and super-inexpensive food was a sure way for hotels and casinos to lure in guests. In 2015, Las Vegas buffets are not as cheap as they used to be, but they are still a popular attraction at many hotels and casinos in the Las Vegas Valley. The invention of the all-you-can-eat buffet is attributed to Herbert Cobb McDonald, a Las Vegas publicist in the 1950s.
