Have had better- even at other Pizza Ranches-buffet style food service

Fried chicken was the best thing on the bar. Pizza was okay. Salad looked untouched when I went scoop out some peas it had a snotty consistency- oh maybe that tainted this review. Only reason we stopped is we have been to other pizza ranches and they included a lot more choices. So as a whole they... read more

Pizza Ranch, as a chain, is historically quite reliable. The Mitchell store belies that claim, and has failed the chain and its guests. Case in point: beverage cup is to be handed to guests immediately. It was not. Case in point: chicken looked, to be accurate, looked awful. Unappetizing. The sparseness of selection was quite evident. I do not overstate... More

The food was reasonable and nothing overly special. The chicken on the buffet was tasty and moist. The diningroom was filthy. The floor needed vacuumed badly and the majority of the booths and tables were filled with dirty dishes and napkins. The bathrooms were cleaner than the diningroom. I probably would not return and would look elsewhere to have my... More

The inside was kind of dirty and not well kept up. The food wasn't worth writing home about. They didn't have icecream there.

Walked in paid went to buffet, flies all over food. Went to find a spot to sit and half of the tables were covered in dirty dishes and the rest were dirty and not wiped down. 4 workers were eating in a booth and the manager was on her cellphone in back booth. The door was open to kitchen and... More

We like Pizza Ranches and eat there often in the Twin Cities - but this one in Mitchell, on a Sunday night, was a nightmare. The food quality (what there was of it out) was okay, but two of the sodas were out of syrup, the iced tea was just literally water, and no tables were cleaned while we were... More

I was in Mitchell for one night with five families. We broke up into groups with 11 of us going to pizza ranch. The sign on the door says open until 10pm. We walked in at 9:30 and the dining area had been cleaned and chairs on the table. They told us the dining area was now closed. I would... More

We stayed at a hotel near by and went off reviews that we read online. We were in the mood for pizza but I wish we would've walked out. There was food all over the floor, walls and tables. The buffet looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a long while-- pizza, scraps, juice all over the area which could... More

We called ahead and were told tables would be held for our group of 14 but, when we got there, nobody knew anything about it. The food on the buffet was cold and almost every pizza had chicken on it! Some people like beef, sausage, etc. The breadsticks were cold and hard. Before getting in line at the buffet, you... More

While travelling with my son, I kept seeing the Pizza Ranch commercials on tv and decided to try one since it was right down the street from our hotel. The food was decent. Nothing spectacular but pretty good for a pizza buffet. They have a huge variety of pizzas to choose from. The price was very reasonable. Salad bar was... More
