Yes, there are still deals in D.C.

Mango Tree
| R. Lopez

The all-you-can-eat food special is a comforting American tradition, especially considering how popular buffets are both locally and across the country. There's something reassuring about paying a fixed price and then unabashedly indulging in a meal without worrying about the cost. It’s a great mix of easiness combined with an encouraged loss of self-control.

Some foods fit into the all-you-can-eat mold better than others. Pizza, salad, pasta, and steak are favorite candidates for unlimited food deals. Yet some local restaurants are distinguishing themselves by offering more obscure items. Diners who look in the right places can find pad Thai, dosas, and even sushi offered in all-you-can-eat form in the D.C. area. Seafood fans, take note — Eater has a separate guide to all-you-can-eat crab throughout the area.

Although D.C. has new restaurants opening every week, most of them seem to focus on small plates that can run up the bill. But there’s still quite a few restaurants around, both old and new, that cater to their clientele’s basic eating needs with unlimited deals.
