    @marinesfiance:  Personally (and I think I’m going to be in the minority) I would prefer the “traditional” option. While I do eat meat, I find buffet meat to often be dry and kind of tough, and I’d choose things like casseroles and macaroni-cheese over meats. I just think they survive the buffet process better (and I like them more!)

    @marinesfiance:  The food in option number 2 sounds yuuum. I’d certainly eat option 1 as well but 2 is a bit more interesting. Also, omg food can be so cheap in America. You’d get charged at least 40-50 a head where I am from for that.

    @marinesfiance:  I like the sound of the second one better. First one sounds like a thanksgiving meal. And the second one is cheaper!

    I’d be happy with either but I was getting more hungry reading the second (and it’s cheaper!) so that’s probably what I’d pick!

    @Lollybags:  Definitely depends on geography! We’d never find prices like that out here… Good job OP, I think both of those options sound deeelish! Making me hungry, haha! 🙂

    @marinesfiance:  I like both menus lol, it all sounds yummy.  However, I agree with Jijitattoo, unless the meats are in some sort of a sauce, they usually end up pretty dry on the buffet line towards the end of dinner service.

    @marinesfiance:  I voted for no 1 but I’ve changed my vote to no 2 because of the excellent point @Jijitattoo made. In my experience, buffets are more about quantity than quality and I doubt you’ll get plates full of perfectly moist chicken and tender steak. The meat probably will be kind of tough, plus option 2 will give any vegetarian guests more of an option.

    @marinesfiance:  The traditional one sounds really yummy but I think I’d need a major nap after all those carbs. Everything is noodles or over rice!

    I like the traditional better. I think that’s because I’ve never tasted really good roasted turkey, meatloaf, or roast beef from a caterer. I most likely wouldnt eat most of that menu.

    Both sound like delicious options so I don’t think you really could go wrong.  I think it depends on your guests….For example, both of our families are very traditional and would prefer #1 over some of the more ethnic (I only use that word for lack of better) food in #2.  However, me personally I would love #2.
