The word “buffet” is not an acronym, but it has been given the jocular backronym (back acronym) of “Big Ugly Fat Fuckers/Fellows/Folks/Freaks Eating Together” since at least the late 1990s. It’s not known who first used the backronym.

When they do leave their vehicles, it’s usually at truck stops and fast-food restaurants where nearly every option is greasy or fatty or served up in calorie-rich buffets — which some truckers say stands for “Big Ugly Fat Fellows Eating Together.”
My professor just told us that buffet stands for “big ugly fat fuckers eating together.” 😂
