The lobster buffet was so good! All the food from prime rib, mac and cheese, anything I tried had so much flavor and was very fresh. No wait at all on Sunday night.

Much better than most Vegas buffets. The meat was tasty. The vegetables were outstanding. And the little chocolate cupcakes... WOW.

Joe W. from San Diego

Valley View has the best buffet of all the casinos in Southern California. For the dinner buffet they have lobster, shrimp (various ways), crab, steak, etc. All the dishes are very good. The dessert section is second to none. Valley View hired the best chefs and pastry cooks!
