Usually a buffet does not feature the best food. It's more about quantity than quality. We usually skip them for this reason, but as part of a tour group this was the location chosen by others for our lunch. The pizza and other food items...More

About Pizza Ranch
At Pizza Ranch, you’ll enjoy our legendary service in a wholesome, family-friendly setting inspired by the Old West.

Whether you sample our buffet or grab your food to go, you’ll savor every slice of our craveable pizza, every piece of The Country’s Best Chicken®, and every one of our delicious sides and salads.

Don’t see your favorite pizza on the buffet? Just request it and we’ll make it fresh for you—and make sure you get the first slice!

Finally, no trip to The Ranch is complete without our signature cinnamon streusel Cactus Bread®—so be sure to save room!

Our buffet features a wide range of pizzas to fulfill the cravings of young and old. With a variety of crusts, sauces, and toppings, you're sure to find one that tempts your tastebuds. If you don't see your favorite on the buffet, just request it and we'll not only make it, we'll deliver the very first slice to you! Now that's legendary service! 

You’ll love our Crispy Ranch Chicken® with its perfect blend of spices and seasonings. We prepare it just right to keep it moist inside and crispy outside. One bite and you’ll know why it’s an all time customer favorite. You may also find other tasty preparations on our buffet, including BBQ, Buffalo or Asian Sesame Chicken. Our chefs make the Country’s Best Chicken® pretty near irresistible, so it’s bound to become one of your favorites too. 

Our mashed potatoes are the perfect addition to the Country’s Best Chicken®. Dressed with our chef’s best gravy, it’s home cooking done right. Always hot and steamy, they complete your meal with a touch of good old-fashioned comfort. We think you’ll agree they’re something special. 

Our perfectly prepared vegetables put some color on your plate and your cheeks! Add them to our Country’s Best Chicken® and potatoes and you’ve got yourself a complete meal. Try them as a side dish with a slice of our Pizza Lover’s Pizza® and make your Mom proud. 

Variety is indeed the spice of life and that’s why our salad bar has so many great choices. From inventive tossed salad to fruit salads to vegetable salads, cole slaw and everything in between you can create a perfect start to your meal. Add a cup of soup and make it a meal. Find your favorite salad toppings and some new ones too. With sumptuous dressings from creamy to sweet to tangy, we’ve got you covered. 

Nothing satisfies quite like our potato wedges. Just the right crispiness outside and fluffiness inside, they’re great as a starter, side, or with some butter and sour cream.  

No meal is complete without a great dessert or two! Our Cactus Bread® is our signature sweet treat topped with cinnamon streusel and sweet icing. One bite and you’ll be a fan for life. Our dessert pizzas come in a variety of fantastic fruit flavors and shouldn’t be missed. And for you lucky ones, some locations even have soft serve ice cream!
