So, do people unironically eat at buffets?

I mean, for what purpose, it's literally being reduced to the level of a pig snorting up slop, especially considering most of the people who go to them are 300 pounds or more.

Also, requesting stories of horrible experiences at those shitholes.
>>
there are good ones like http://www.minado.com/
everything is fresh and only on the line for a short time because they rotate out the old stuff instead of just mixing new stuff into it

I had a gun pulled on me once though at a shitty one in a black neighborhood

i'm 6'2", regularly go to the gym, and can eat quite a bit. i go to an indian buffet where everything is freshly made from scratch, with a variety of 20 or more different dishes to choose from. i've never seen anybody who was 300 pounds or more at this buffet. it's mostly white people interested in indian food, or indian families coming in. the main server is incredibly nice, always smiling and making the kids laugh. they're never screaming or crying.

a locally owned buffet preparing food from scratch isn't the same as golden corral.
>>
Went to a Golden Corral once. The fucking steak cut was actually raw (I like rare steak before anyone starts), the whole place smelled like the bathroom, and the food was very stale (as if it has been sitting out for hours).

But I like Vegas style buffets very occasionally.

Buffets done well are great, the problem is we don't have enough balls to call out the pigs when they go and have their 8th plate

I must admit though, the general clientele at the huge chinese buffet nearby I have visited a couple of times makes me reconsider my position on eugenics.

My Grandma every once in a while gathers the close family and pays us lunch at a local buffet

Everything is made from scratch in the hour and is absolutely delicious. Also you can portion what you wanna eat any way you want, which is something I love

If they do I don't go back

I'm not advocating going to shit tier buffets, or going to a buffet and acting like a pig at the trough, BUT there are high end buffets, and certain ethnic or specialized buffets that are absolutely worth going to.
OP, I guess you just live in an area with nothing but shit tier buffets. Sorry.

If you want a true horror show, go on a cruise.

Thank god you could go to the dining room, sit down, order, and be brought a human sized portion of food and eat it peacefully in the quiet, elegant, almost empty dining room.

We did that every meal except for the one morning where the wife wanted to sleep in so I went to the buffet to make us a couple plates to bring back to the room.

The "feeding area" was disgusting, loud, packed and the smell of these fat fucks who came down I showered in the clothes they slept in to gorge themselves was gag worthy.

The guy in front of me had a large dinner plate covered with six or seven biscuits in a layer, which he proceeded to smother in gravy, bury in hash browns, and them top with what had to be two pounds of bacon, post-cooked weight.

Literally what that man had on one plate was more than my wife and I ate for breakfast all week, combined.

This is not a fat shaming post either, I'm no lightweight, I just don't understand the mentality of someone taking so much food that they are clearly going to waste most of.
>>
>>7286721
Some people have no self control and feel compelled to gorge themselves when given the opportunity.

I went on a cruise when I was in my teens. I basically did what you are describing. The novelty of being able to take as much as you wanted just didnt end on my 16 year old self.

The days we were visiting islands werent so bad, but the days at sea went something like
>buffet breakfast
>buffet brunch
>restaurant lunch
>buffet afternoon tea
>restuarant dinner

In between each of those was basically chilling by the pool and consuming very strong cocktails.

Fucking loved it. I ate myself stupid for 2 weeks. Sorry I ruined it for you though man.

I like Indian buffets.
It lets me try a large variety dishes that I wouldn't order otherwise.
>>
>>7286168
There are nicer buffets. I once or twice a year go to one at a local Indian casino. It's $30 and they have all sorts of sea food in addition to the traditional American comfort food stuff.

I wouldn't ever go to somewhere like Golden Corral or a chinese/asian buffet.
>>
>>7286721
>This is not a fat shaming post either
You don't have to worry about that shit here. This is 4chan, not tumblr or facebook.
>>
>>7286168
No, I only eat at them ironically. I go up, get a single piece of lettuce from the salad, then sit at my table slowly cutting tiny pieces from it and taking exaggerated bites of them with comical looks of ecstasy on my face.

When I'm done I stagger out grasping my stomach in mock pain, muttering about how agonisingly full I am.

Well worth the price of admission.
>>
>>7286168
High-end buffets, like the ones found at casinos and nicer cruise lines, are freaking awesome. Carving stations with prime rib and tenderloins, fresh seafood, sushi, fresh desserts, etc.

The Golden Corrals and cheap Chinese places are for the plebs of the world.

All you can eat means exactly that. I don't eat out but eating messily or being loud is not synonymous with eating a lot even if they overlap.

I went to all the "big name" buffets around Las Vegas and every single one was a huge disappointment during the first visit, if not, the second.

Literal autism. Do your surroundings honestly affect the quality of the food right in front of you that much? Kill yourselves and rid the gene pool of your idiocy.
>>
>>7287380

I live in Vegas and you need to go to them at the right time of day or week. Places that do specialty nights tend to be a little better than places that serve the exact same menu every day.

So, that said, as a Vegas resident, I've been to way more buffets than I want to in my life. I can't stand them, because I'm more about the restaurant experience as opposed to getting up every 20 minutes to grab another weirdly different plate of food.

I've been to Bacchanal here a few times on account of work, and it's legit, but all of the best foods have to make you worried depending on how long they sit out.

I do love a good seafood buffet, but that's about it.

>vegas
>fresh seafood

Nope.
>>
>>7287541
You do realize that there are these amazing "horseless carriages" now, some even large enough to put lots of items within so you can move said items from one place to another. They even have extra magical ones that keep things cold inside a large insulated box on the back.

There are also big metal flying machines that can hold many items as well and can move even faster through the sky to move said items from one place to another.
>>
>>7287554
>seafood kept in a refrigerated truck and transported from coast to literal desert
>fresh
Nope.

You're not getting same-day caught fish in Vegas. Especially not in a fucking buffet.
>>
>>7287541

What? You're more likely to get fresh seafood in Vegas than you are most cities that aren't literally on the coast. We're one of the most opulent cities in the world.

No non-coastal city in the U.S. ships in more fresh seafood on a daily basis than Las Vegas.

We're a 5 hour drive from the Pacific Ocean, and a 45 minute flight, and a constant influx of tourists burning cash like it's going out of style makes sure of it.

Why the fuck would you pass on the opportunity to eat as much food as you like for a fixed price? I'll agree that some buffets can be quite miserable and of poor quality, but if a buffet is done properly you can have enough tasty food to last you a week.
>>
>>7287743
They're weak to fire.
>>
>>7286983

So was it worth $90 a plate? I wanted to try it the last time I was in Vegas but I didn't think I'd be able to eat enough to justify the price, and I almost never drink champagne. The lamb and the lobster tails tempt me.
>>
>>7286168
>animu
>>
>>7289933
I was skeptical as well but I would say it is worth it. However, I like champagne and i was guzzling that shit. Easily drank $90 in champagne alone. Aside from the quality of the food what really made it worth it for me was the atmosphere and level of service. At other Las Vegas buffets you sometimes have to wait in line to get in, it's usually crowded and some people even bring their kids, and it's very hustle and bustle. At the Sterling Brunch we made a reservation, walked right in and had a leisurely, relaxing meal for over 2 hours. Our server literally never let my champagne glass go empty and was a real class act. I would do it again
>>
>>7287573
You're not getting same-day caught seafood at a restaurant on the coast unless you caught it yourself.
>>
>>7286168
I understand why you would think like that, if you hate food and eating and only do it to stay alive.
I go to buffet like once or twice a year tops, always with friends or family, and it's always part of some celebration.
And you better believe I eat as much as possible, on these rare occasions.
>>
>>7289960
>complaining about "anime" images on a site created to discuss anime
It will never be considered off-topic either, so get triggered more faggot.

You've sold me. I'm thinking about going to Vegas again this year, anyway. I do like champagne on rare occasions, but not the really cheap shit. I see that they don't serve that, so another reason to go.
>>
>>7290362
You won't regret it. Especially if you're able to pay for it with the house's money :)
