They weren't that busy, and a lot of employees, but yet the ranch, plates, ice, cactus bread, and potatoes were out the majority of the time we were there. Our plates were never picked up the whole time. The pizza I requested came just before we left. Ice cream machine broke. The black haired worker was the only decent one.... More

We have eaten at many pizza ranch buffets and always like it. This one is pretty small compared to the other I have been to but had a lot of options. The pizza we ordered was good and the salad bar was fresh and Good. It was clean and pretty much what we expected. For 4 of us it was... More

They deliver and pizza was awesome! No napkins, red pepper flakes, or parmesean cheese thou. Little dissapointed in that, but it didn't stop us from eating the entire pizza!

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.

You wouldn't think a chain like this would be good, but it was to me. I had the pepperoni pizza. i was very hungry at the time, but no complaints.
