Adrian Peterson -- Scores at Vegas Buffet

5/30/2011 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NFL star Adrian Peterson turned a bunch of Las Vegas casino dwellers into hardcore Minnesota Vikings fans this weekend ... by picking up the tab on their buffet dinner!

Our Sin City spies spotted Adrian in line at the Bistro Buffet at the Palms Casino and Resort Friday night, where a couple noticed him and asked if he was, in fact, Adrian Peterson. We're told AP answered with his catch phrase (and nickname), "All day."

Peterson asked the couple -- and about a dozen other people in line for the buffet -- if they wanted to join him for dinner ... and then picked up the tab for everyone.

Total cost -- about $400.

If that stupid lockout ever ends ... Adrian will make roughly $10.7 million next season -- so he's gonna be alright.

@Love Star Wars - MC Hammer had all of his old neighborhood friends on his payroll over 200 people. IIRC it was up in the millions a year and he tried helping all his family members. It's a great gesture and clearly shows his giving heart but not if you want to stay rich. Some people will call him stupid but looking back he showed he was a good person to other people even if what he did was a horrible business move. Adrian Peterson just spent $400 being nice during what was probably an isolated incident. $400 to him is like pocket change nothing like what Hammer was spending. So insinuating he's going to go broke if he keeps it up is ridiculous just from this one time.

His nickname is "A.D.", as in "all day". Not A.P.

He & his brother bought their parents a house across the street from us in Gainesville. He's always been a generous guy.

Peterson made me a fan when I waited on him last year in Vegas. He is a nice guy and very generous. He had a large group of friends with him and they were all so nice and had a great time.
It was a nice change of pace to wait on a person in the public eye that is easy going and down to earth.
