“Great place for the kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

What a great idea, all you can eat Pizza and Chicken. What kid doesn't enjoy this place, ours love it and it's one of the MOST reasonable places to eat price-wise. Don't miss it.

“Very good chicken and pizza restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

This is a very good place to eat if you are traveling by Ames, IA, or you are in town and looking for a good place for a group to eat at. The service has always been great and the food is very good. They have their all you can eat buffet all day long so it is fast and economical. If you are not happy ask for the manager and they will fix your problem. They have always been very friendly when we have gone there.

“Getting a little high priced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

In my opinion. Almost ten bucks for below average pizza and below average salad bar. The chicken is good to me. But for this price you might as well go to KFC or Hy-Vee and get a chicken dinner. I will say the place does a decent job of keeping food out. Sometimes the chicken gets over done and pizza selection is limited to those with few toppings.
