This past weekend I had the pleasure of dining with a casino owner. During dinner they wanted my opinion on a particular subject and I thought it would be an excellent Readers Poll question. The casino owner question was . . . Should buffets remain open around the clock, 24/7 in Las Vegas serving a full dinner menu? (Almost all buffets in Las Vegas close during the late hours of the day (10p average) and open between 7-11a)   What is your opinion?  We want to hear from you!

They should stay open. I know at midnight sometimes i want dinner and a buffet is exactly what i need.  Robin S  Fort Worth TX

I would prefer them to stay open.  When I fly from the east coast and wait until 9a for the buffet to open, it is noon to my stomach.  Great question, get them to stay open.  DW New York.

I don't eat at buffets so I would say no, don't stay open all night.  Monica  Visalia/CA

No , there would be a lot of food that was thrown out because its old . How many people will be going to dinner at late hours?  Dolores  Alpine, Ca.

No Seems like a lot of food would be wasted. Everywhere I have been there has been an adequate amount of food available at all off hours. I do not ever recall being unable to find food at any hour in Las Vegas.  Stephen Samac  Brooklyn,Oh

I think keeping the buffets open would be nice for some but I personally probably would'nt go to one that late. If I wanted something to eat that late, it would be a lighter meal than a buffet. Also, they may have to raise overall prices to make it profitable for the casino, which would deter Me at other times a well.  Eddie Schulz  Urbana,OH

with the economy the way it is, I would recommend keeping some open but at a lower price and serving fewer food items....a mini buffet. Try it for three months and re-evaluate. Carolyn Liebler  South Windsor, Ct.

No, they should close.   Sue  south beloit

 I think all casinos should have a dinner and late night buffet. Riviera discontinued both of those and it's not very convenient if you're staying there.  Eda Risk  Wyandotte Mi

Not many buffets would be able to be profitable. They would replace the current 24 hr coffee shop. They would probably offer a late-night selection with choices from breakfast, dinner and sandwich menus. The location would probably be important and not every casino could support the 24 hr buffet. It would be interesting and weird. there would be more drunks and people looking for a place to sleep (a buffet would be "room and board" for one low price.)  Bill Sheneman  red Hill, PA

Heck ya! I can't believe how early some of the buffets around town close. C'mon, it's the city that never sleeps...except our buffets are snoozing like Grandma!  If they can't stay open 24/7 then At Least stay open until midnight!  Otherwise our choices are pretty slim pickens...McDonalds? EESH.  Trina Boice    Las Vegas
