KTLA’s Sam Rubin takes a trip to Las Vegas and visits the Palms Casino Resort to soak up the sun and enjoy some great food. Sam took it upon himself to try out the buffet and new barbecue joint.

Marcus O’ Brien, Palms’ executive chef, gave Sam a tour around the buffet table and talked to him about some of the famous dishes.

“Why can’t you have good food and big food and a little bit of everything,” said O’Brien.

He said that is what the all-you-can-eat buffet is all about. The chef is very passionate about his job, the people and the food he serves to the people of Sin City. His passion is infectious and he stated that he wants to make sure he carries it on to each restaurant.

Chef Michael Symon from Mable’s BBQ took Sam around the smoker and educated him on the types of meats, how they should fall off the bone and the sauces you want to use.

“It has a little bit of a bite to it,” stated Simon.

Symon said it comes down to the meats and how Mable’s BBQ set themselves apart. Sam fell in love with the barbecue and will definitely be back.

“It’s at a different tier of quality,” said Sam.

To try these delicious restaurants head over the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.
