There are a few open buffets on the Las Vegas Strip, but Caesars Palace’s famed Bacchanal Buffet remains closed. As a result, the pass to the Buffet of Buffets is no longer accessible. Once it’s available again, we’ll update this post.
There are no limits to how much you can eat when you dine at Caesars Entertainment’s 24-hour all-you-can-eat buffet, which is a first for the Las Vegas Strip.
Breakfast, lunch, and supper are all included with this deal. There are also a variety of buffets to choose from. It may even be possible to have a fourth meal in certain cases. I’ll go into more detail about this later).
It’s known as the Buffet of Buffets, or “BOB,” to those who’ve dubbed it.
It is possible to dine at five separate buffets on the Las Vegas Strip for 24 hours with the Buffet of Buffets ticket. Extra premium buffet access is available for an additional charge.
What is the cost of the Buffet Pass?
Caesars Rewards Cardholders get a $59.99 discount on their regular Buffet of Buffet passes during holidays (more on that below).
The following are the exact prices:
Sunday – Thursday: $69.99 per person (or $59.99 if you show a Caesars Rewards Card)
Friday – Sunday Morning: $79.99 per person (or $69.99 with a Caesars Rewards Card)
Please note that the higher-priced weekend pass now begins at 8 p.m. on Thursday, runs through 8 p.m. on Sunday, and ends at 8 p.m. on Monday. Consequently, the lower-priced weekday pass begins at 8:01 p.m. on Sunday evenings.
Also, the 8.25 percent sales tax in Las Vegas is not included in these costs.
If you have a Caesars Rewards Card, a one-person Weekend Buffet of Buffets Pass will cost $75.76 after tax. Before tax and gratuity, the cost of a meal for two would be $151.53.
As for the children, what about them? Children are not eligible for a discount on their tickets. Mom and Dad pay the same price.
It’s hard to believe that the BOB began off as a $29.99 experiment only a few short years ago.
Since then, the price has continued to rise, most recently in April 2019. Weekday BOB passes are less expensive than weekend BOB passes, so plan your trip accordingly.
The Caesars Entertainment Caesars Rewards Card (formerly known as the Total Rewards Card) must be signed up before buying a pass. You’ll save $10 if you have the card, which you can get for free at any Caesars Entertainment casino player’s club desk.
All-You-Can-Eat Festive Buffet
Cost: $99.99 for non-Caesars Rewards Cardholders, $89.99 for those who have them.
Memorial Day Weekend, Labor Weekend, Thanksgiving/Black Friday Weekend, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve Weekend, and New Year’s Day are all examples of holidays when Caesars Entertainment may implement special pricing.
Holiday pricing isn’t limited to just one day of the year. This does not include the Super Bowl weekend, which I assume is included in these other holidays.
Pass Savings at Buffet of Buffets
A little perspective is necessary when looking at the usual weekday $59.99 24-hour buffet pass. For example, a $21.99 breakfast buffet at the Paris Las Vegas. During the week, their lunch buffet costs $24.99, and their nighttime buffet is $30.99.
This adds up to $79.97. For $59.99 (with a player’s card), you may save $18 by purchasing the Buffet of Buffets pass instead of each buffet individually. In addition, savvy eaters may get a fourth meal out of the bargain, making it even more profitable.
For example, you buy a BOB pass at 7 p.m. and then go out to supper. The following day, you may choose from a breakfast and lunch buffet. Arrive at the 4th buffet before 7 p.m. to take advantage of the early bird special.
Buffet of Buffets Passes: Where Can You Purchase Them?
Any of the six participating buffets will sell you a pass. The cashier’s stand is all you need to do.
Any Caesars Entertainment hotel/casino, including the Linq, may sell you a Total Rewards card, except Planet Hollywood.
Make sure to either display or sign up for a free Caesars Rewards player’s card before entering the casino.
In addition, purchasing the ticket at your first buffet stop and entering shortly after that is an excellent idea. You may get the advantages for the whole 24 hours if you choose.
A black wristband will be sent to you after you’ve paid for the pass. All the buffets are open to you with a barcode on this card. Caesars Rewards cards were required to access the buffets, so make sure you have them handy. Another kind of picture identification, such as a driver’s license, may be requested (This keeps you from chowing down and then giving your Caesars Rewards card to your friend).
Is the Buffet of Buffets Pass Valid for a Certain period Only?
The pass has a timestamp and is valid for precisely 24 hours. According to Caesars Entertainment, even if you were in line at the buffet when the 24-hour deadline elapsed, you wouldn’t be permitted in.
Included in the Buffet of Buffets is a buffet of buffets.
A Buffet of Buffets pass includes these restaurants:
At Harrah’s, the buffet is called Flavors.
The Flamingo’s Paradise Garden Buffet
The Village Buffet at Paris Las Vegas
On the menu of Planet Hollywood is a buffet called Spice Market Buffet.
The Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino’s Carnival World Buffet.
The five buffets listed below are all included in your admission price. However, when they discontinued their extensive fish buffet at the Carnival Buffet in May of this year, Rio’s Carnival Buffet abolished the $25 upgrade cost.
One extra buffet, which is not included in the Buffet of Buffets ticket, is available in addition to these five freebies.
Caesars Palace’s Bacchanal Buffet is a well-known and highly praised dining experience.
a fee for the upgraded buffet
Caesars Palace’s Bacchanal Buffet, the most well-known of Caesars Entertainment’s resort buffets, charges Buffet of Buffets pass holders an additional price to attend.
To upgrade, you will pay the following:
Bacchanal Buffet upgrade costs $45 on holidays.
This is a per-visit charge. A $35 upgrade price would still be required on Wednesday, even if you had purchased a ticket to dine at the Bacchanal Buffet at 5 p.m. on Tuesday and wished to eat there again at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
It’s also worth mentioning that the costs of improvements and taxes may soon mount. Bacchanal Buffet guests without a player’s card, for example, who purchase two BOB tickets (for $79.99 each) and dine at Bacchanal ($35 upgrade charge) on the weekend will pay a total of (gulp) $248.95 after taxes.
Deals at the Buffet of Buffets
Caesar’s Entertainment owns all of the buffets participating in this promotion.
Because of this, from time to time, Caesar’s Entertainment will offer “Room and Board” packages. There are “Room and Buffet Packages,” as they’re known.
Buffet of Buffet packages may be found at the bottom of the page on Caesars’ official site (when available) and is a deal that comes and goes.
Passes to the Buffet of Buffets are included for visitors who spend two or more nights at a participating Caesars Entertainment hotel. (Caesars may pay me a percentage if you book a hotel via this link.)
Passes included in this bundle have the same terms and conditions as purchased individually. These five buffets are Harrah’s, Flamingo, Paris, Rio de Janeiro Carnival, and Planet Hollywood, all included in the passes.
Guests using their BOB pass at Caesars Palace’s Bacchanal Buffet will be charged the extra costs as those listed above.
Even if you don’t mind eating all of your meals at a buffet for the duration of your stay, the cost of two-weekend Buffet of Buffets tickets, this Room and Buffet package might save you a lot of money on food. If you can use the buffet ticket for four separate meals (which is not that difficult), you’ll save even more money.
In any bargain, you’ll have to weigh the savings you’ll get from just booking a hotel and not having to worry about dining costs against the somewhat higher cost of booking both.
The Buffet of Buffets pass might be a decent deal if you’re prepared to put in the effort to optimize your time and food intake during the 24 hours of the ticket.
a few more tidbits
- Any other coupon or discount for a buffet cannot be combined with the Buffet of Buffets pass.
- If you’re looking for something a little more alcoholic, you’ll have to pay for it yourself.
- You should save your receipt after buying your pass. If you lose your pass, this will help you get a new one.
