Cuisine – Buffet
Location – Reno, Nevada
Verdict – Atlantis Buffet was better than we expected. With a mid week dinner price of $25.99, the large selection of food was a great value. While this is a great buffet in Reno and similar to Tahoe’s Harrah’s Forest Buffet, when compared to the top buffets in California – Aveo at Dana Point or in the world – Ritz Carlton Singapore, this spot pales in comparison.
