Red velvet pancakes, wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas, South Carolina shrimp and grits...even Chinese dim sum. If you've eaten it, the Bacchanal Buffet likely has it.

"It's all about bacchanal, a celebration," buffet general manager Gabrielle Perez, formerly of major buffet rival Wynn Las Vegas, told USA Today.

Dinner costs $39.95, with the price of an average check coming to $25 a person, according to the Caesars Palace website.

The price of a larger pair of pants is not included.
