We stopped in tint he Pizza Ranch when I was visiting my parents in Marshalltown. The restaurant was clean and we received good service, but the food was horrible. The pizza crust tasted like cardboard, the sauce was very garlicky, the chicken was so greasy that all you could taste was the oil it was cooked in. The best part... More

Restaurant is extremely clean, food is excellent to divine especially the fried chicken (if you like KFC) you'll love it here. Several flavors of pizza are on the buffet plus special orders are available. Staff is congenial and efficient. For pizza and chicken it can't be beat.

Went there twice. Once was enough to make me want to come back. My second time was on a Sunday right after church let out. Tons of people everywhere and they were able to keep up with the crowd. The only thing I see at every buffet I go to is the lack of enforcement making sure kids are accompanied... More

I stopped at this location on Monday at exactly 8:31 pm. I was greeted by a crowd of teenage employees that had that seriously disappointed look when I walked through the door. The sign on the door stated that the location closed at 9pm. However the staff informed me that they were already closed at 8:31pm. I'm so sick of... More

There's good reason kids love it it's just like fast food-greasy and under warmer for a long time with lots of preservatives! Salad bar is subpar and the pizza, yuck. I've stuck to the BLT of my kids absolutely are set on going here. Save your tummy, pick a different place.

They have limited pizza selections and were out of fried chicken. When they make a pizza for you it takes 20 minutes.

I have had great service and selection from the buffet. I find there is something for everyone who eats here that is why at times you may find it busy. You are always asked if there is any special pizza you would like including dessert pizza. I enjoy the chicken, raspberry tea and of course the ice cream machine. There... More

I had a coupon for 8 free chicken pieces with the purchase of same so for $12.83 (including tax) I got 16 pieces. The assortment was very good with only one wing included. I ordered ahead so it was ready when I got to the Drive Thru window. I thought their coating was tasty but it wasn't very crispy at... More
