Monte Carlo Has Given Up, Names Buffet 'Big Belly'

There's really no other way to put this bit of news -- The Monte Carlo has given up on life trying to attract a younger, trendier clientele. How else to explain the name for their new buffet restaurant --Big Belly Buffet?

Now, we know buffets in Vegas are supposed to be fancy-free, cheap places to all-you-can-eat and that's actually one of the things we love about this town. But, really? Big Belly Buffet? As a name for the entire buffet? Not just a special buffet package? Also, was Heart Attack Buffet not available?

Sorry for all the questions, but this seems like such a drastic turn from a few years ago when Aria and Cosmopolitan were opening up their own swanky buffet spots. We thought Monte Carlo was trying to modernize in that direction as well but we were clearly way off mark.

Nevertheless, Big Belly Buffet (we'll just call it BBB from now, if you don't mind) is still a good buffet deal. On the weekends, the brunch price is $20.99 for adults and $15.99 for children 5-11. During the week those prices drop to $17.99 and $12.99 respectively. Dinners are $21.99 and $15.99 during the week while on weekends, dinners go for $25.99 for adults and $17.99 for the kids (Children under 4 eat free at all times.)

BBB even offers an all-day pass which will save you about $5 if you buy brunch and dinner together.

Once inside, you can fill up your belly with made-to-order cuisine, salad bars, pasta bars, grill stations, carving stations and tons of desserts. Just don't get mad when you leave Vegas 10 pounds heavier. After all, the restaurant is called Big Belly Buffet.

Monte Carlo Buffet...

I'm not a buffet person. I'll use the RIO's Carnival World Buffet for Mon-Fri breakfasts only because it's cheaper than their Cafe and the variety is obviously much better.

And...ever notice how many buffet folks resemble their plates?...large, larGE and LARGER!

HEY PEOPLE!...it'll still be there if ya wanna go back. Nothin' like wolfin' down your cold lasagna that was buried under your chinese food, buried under the country fried steak w/country gravey that was on top of the deserts and pizza...

This new buffet name is goofy...
Hell, maybe they should have just called it 'THE HIGH CHOLESTEROL LOVERS OBESE&DIABETIC FOODOTORIUM'
