This review is strictly for Horizons Buffet, as there is not option to leave a review for just the buffet. I used to love this buffet when it was called "The Feast Around the World" back in the days of Station Casino. It seems that since the switch from one to other, they have downsized the food options, and made everything smaller. This wasn't the best idea in the world. The claim to fame used to be the HUGE salad bars on both sides of the buffet. They were massive and had amazing salad options. For those of us who truly enjoy salad, this was a great treat. Since the remodel they have decided to move one of the food outlets (The Mexican Side) and put the salad bar in that location. Now the salad bar is tiny with very few options. Just a very standard salad bar. One star removed for that happening. The remaining food stalls remain great in food quality. it irritates me that they decided to combine the Italian and Mexican into one area. This seriously limits the food that is served here. The pizza is still amazing, but there is very little "mexican" food over here, with the exception of tortilla chips and salsa. The BBQ, Farmers Market, and Chinese section remain excellent. All in all the food choices are amazing, and this is above average buffet style food. There service however is the main downfall for this buffet. It is AWFUL. Good luck getting refills on the beverages, as it simply WONT happen. It also takes them a LONG time to clear plates. This becomes a problem when you have a table with 8 people dining. The other major issues I have is the lack of a restroom in the actual restaurant itself. If you have to use the restroom you need to exit the buffet, and walk quite a distance to the front of the casino area. This is a HUGE inconvenience, as my elderly parents have a difficult time walking, and it is a very long distance for them to walk. This combined with a lack of service quality removes one more of the stars.
