Sometimes, you just need to pig out and eat enough food for a small country in one meal. When gluttonous desires strike, Arizona has plenty of places to give in. Here are 10 of our favorites:
1. Wandering Horse Buffet (Scottsdale)
Casinos are known for having some of the best buffets, and Talking Stick doesn't disappoint. With cuisine from all over the world, it satisfies palates of gamblers from all over the world. You'll find it at 9800 Talking Stick Way, Scottsdale, AZ 85256.

I mean, just look at all that color!
3. Pacific Seafood Buffet (Chandler)
Considering an ocean is nowhere in sight, sushi spreads like this are a rare sight here in the Grand Canyon State. Patrons can also delight in delicacies like snow crab, shrimp, mussels, and oysters, as well as sizzling Mongolian barbecue. Pacific Seafood Buffet is located at 3110 N Arizona Ave, Chandler, AZ 85225.

8. Govinda's Natural Foods Buffet (Tucson)
The slogan "don't knock it 'till ya try it" definitely applies to Govinda's. Some of us turn up our noses at the mere thought of vegetarian food, but you've never had it quite like this.

9. Reign of Thai (Phoenix)
One wouldn't expect this unassuming eatery to serve up such delicious food, but sometimes places with atmospheres that leave something to be desired are the ones most worth visiting. Thai food isn't usually offered buffet-style, but Reign of Thai breaks the norm in an absolutely delicious way. The address is 12032 N Cave Creek Rd., Phoenix, AZ 85020.
10. India's Flame (Tempe)
Though just opened three weeks ago, India's Flame has already racked up dozens of stellar reviews. It isn't hard to see why - just look how fresh and flavorful the food looks! The buffet can be found at 4427 S. Rural Rd. Suite 3 & 4, Tempe, AZ 85282.
