We did both breakfast and lunch at the Imperial Palace Buffet. This is one of the cheapest buffets in Vegas, and if you sign up for the Imperial Palace Players Club, you can get $5 off lunch or dinner, making it even cheaper.This is a basic buffet and covers all bases: salads, hot foods, and desserts. The food was functional: it filled your gut. While it was not horrible food, it is definately not a meal you are going to brag to your friends about years to come. For breakfast, the buffet offered eggs, toast, pancakes, breakfast burritos, sausage and bacon. It also offered salads, deserts and soup (just in case you wanted brunch?!). My boyfriend had the eggs and noted that they were a bit rubbery (probably from sitting under a hot lamp). If you dig eggs for breakfast, it's probably worth the wait to have a chef make you an omelette on the spot. As for lunch, there were a variety of salads and soups in addition to french fries, rice, shrimp, a carving station for roast beef, and other basic hot foods. The food was fine and left us feeling satisfied. Both being vegetarians, we both had a bit of difficult time finding foods to eat that didn't require some picking of food out. The variety of foods was also limited, despite your eating habits. The buffet had 2 lines of hot trays on each side of the carving station. Instead of offering different foods on each side, they were identical. If you are doing Vegas on a budget and are just looking for food, this buffet will suit your need just fine. If you are looking for a dining experience, you might want to search elsewhere!
