Going back to AC on Sunday

Hey Gang,

My GF and I are going down to stay at the Borgata.... yeah again. My question is, she has a coupon for a 2 comp buffet for Virginia City or Sidewalk or use it as a $30 credit for Pickles, Animation or Garden Cafe. What do you suggest?

Also, she has comp tickets for Dancing Queen at the Palace Theater. Anyone heard of it or have gone and if so, is it worth going to see?

Avoid the Sidewalk buffet and possibly the Garden Cafe.

Prepare for long lines, regardless of where you go. A ton of people probably have the same coupon. Maybe try to eat at an unconventional time? Still, I tried using such a coupon at 11 pm on a weeknight back in January and still waited on line for about 20 minutes.

I've read good things about Dancing Queen.

Thanks.

Did you like the Virginia City Buffet? Never been there.

How about Pickles or Animation?

Again?! Man! I'm jealous!!! Especially since you are staying there.

I've eaten at Pickles twice and liked it--both times I ate sandwiches, but they were good.

A friend of mine went to Dancing Queen and loved it. I say go and check it out!

Have fun and good luck.

Yeah again. I booked this one before I booked the bday trip. If they are going to offer a free room and I have a little extra dough to spend, I am there. We will go see dancing queen and probably try out pickles. Do they serve breakfast?

Animations or Garden Cafe are your choices for breakfast. Pickles open for lunch/dinner only.

Avoid Sidewalk Buffet at all costs!!!!

What about Virginia City Buffet for breakfast?

We decided to do just an overnighter. Mon to Tues. still good. More money for slots.

The Virginia City buffet is considered one of the best in AC. Lots of selections and (at least at dinner) you also can get a steak and all the fixings at the buffet.

Virginia City Buffet is only open for lunch / dinner and is excellent .( And no Kids !) I would use the comp there . You can go get a reserved seating hour . Come back 15 minutes before the assigned time and you won't have a long wait . The buffet is excellent . Only difference between lunch and dinner is at dinner they will give you a cooked to order steak ( 1 per person ) , and they have baked potatos . They have the London Broil at both lunch and dinner which is excellent .
