Its alright. We dine here frequently due to the affordable buffet. Although sometimes they're not busy enough to keep all the buffet fresh all the time. Maybe adjust how much you put out until you know you'll be getting customers in. Keep it available , just not as much so you can serve fresher... read more

My kids had never had Valentinos pizza. I told them when I was growing up in Norfolk we had to drive out of town to get it. They really liked it.

This is the biggest disappointment for Valentinos! I am very surprised the company allows it to operate like it is. The buffet is very small with not much of a selection. The meat for the tacos looks like dog food. It felt a little dirty/messy at the buffet as well. As many times as someone went back & forth to... More

ordered several pizzas to go. It looked like a lack of workers. Service was very slow and when I did get waited on. The server was in a hurry. Food was so so.

The food was absolutely awful. The pizza selection was minimal, the food was cold, and after bringing our beverages, the "waitress" disappeared. A buffet should have more than three selections, in my opinion.

Can't beat Valentino's for delicious pizza and a great buffet! I love the LAYERS of toppings. The variety on the buffet is yummy as well -- and yes, the cinnamon rolls are the BEST! Great for take-out or dine-in, but we have not ever done half-baked. Val's is a MUST for anyone who is visiting Nebraska. You will love it,... More

Went with a group for Saturday dinner (lunch to some). We arrived around noon so they had only been open for a hour. The floor was so sticky, I thought they mopped it with pop from the soda fountain. Wait staff was friendly and the food was ok. 5 stars for the dessert cinnamon rolls! For the price we can... More

Pretty good buffet. Valentino's pizza isn't as good as way back when in my college days in Lincoln when they had one location near the UNL Ag College. But the buffet value is good with an OK salad bar and multiple kinds of pizza. They have a good desert with pizza crust and fruit topping.
