satisfying

good variety of food,Tuesday are buffet night and Saturday night the Blues room has music in the bigger dining room. I think he should utilize the big dining room on Tuesady for more comfort in seating.

First of all to get in the place itself can be a trick. I am assuming locals know but for us out of towners getting in was confusing. When you walk up to the restaurant on the square there is a large arrow pointing towards the side door. When you go there it is locked and we ended up walking... More

Reno's deep dish pizza is one of the best! If you're around on Sunday, check out their buffet for a great selection of items that aren't usually found on their menu! If you're in luck they will be serving something with their alfredo sauce - sooo good!

The buffet has a good selection and everything I had was good. I certainly would not hesitate to try it again. The server was very good and friendly

I ate here with a group of 7 ladies and we were seated quickly. The pizza on the buffet didn't taste bad, but was not very warm. I got some Bacon chicken ranch as soon as it was brought out and it was very good. I think because the crust is thin the pizzas have a tendency to cool off... More

We've been going here for several years and have always really enjoyed the food. Not tonight! We ordered the Reno's Special pizza. Yes, it had lots of toppings but at least 75% of them were olives. Three different kinds! We love olives but there was so many that the pizza tasted like brine on a crust. There was very little... More

My definition of a Good Chef is someone who takes pride in his craft. The taste of his food and its' presentation should reflect this pride. The residents and visitors to Carlinville have been blessed with a Superb Chef. MR. RENO takes pride not only in the pizzas that he has developed, but also in the magnificant pasta dishes that...

The service is ok. The lasagna and the sauce used to be better I'm not sure what they've changed but it's not as good as it used to be....very disappointed.

I like the main part of the restaurant, the original front area, but the area by the buffet is crowded, tables too close together, and it was hot, stuffy, and muggy in there. I did not like the choices on the buffet, and it sure would be nice to put labels next to the food choices so people know what... More

We live a long way away but Reno’s Pizza is always one of my first stops when I visit- we just can’t find pizza like his elsewhere. Eat inside, Carry out, Delivery, or Buffet- it’s always delicious. Reno and his family are almost always around, working and checking on customers. They will make you feel like family in no time... More
