Four "Crazy" Buffet Lunch Deals in West Palm Beach

These days, your typical lunch buffet means Pizza Hut's $10 special or a China Buffet line a mile long (with a bathroom line to match). 

But if you visit Rachel's of West Palm Beach (the steak house part, that is) on Wednesday -- when they have their "prime rib special" buffet -- you'll get just that: a juicy piece of meat for just $5 (yes, we're still talking steak here).

Although not all buffets offer such delectable dishes, it's worth mentioning the few that do. 

Read on to find out where you can get an amazing lunch deal, buffet-style:

​For just $10, you can plate-up with some pretty amazing seafood and sushi (including raw oysters and steamed crab legs). The crazy selection of food -- five buffet tables that include your average American fare and a sweet assortment of desserts -- is part of the reason they call it crazy buffet.

No worries about quality or freshness either. The sushi and seafood go so fast, you won't have time to worry about flies on your food. And feel free to special-order rolls to your liking if they aren't too busy. 

There's even a full bar. Snag a seat and throw back a few pre-chowdown drinks to get you started -- or wash it all down afterward with a cold beer or glass of wine. Current drink specials include any two beers for $4.99, cocktails and martinis two-for-one, and house wines that are buy one, get the second half-price. Now that's a crazy deal for sure.

Hours: 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday ($9.99 adults, $5.99 children)
Noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday ($11.99 adults, $7.99 children)
