FABULOUS POTATO WEDGES 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.

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!

The buffet is well stocked and clean every time we go. They take requests for anything you want on the buffet, and my family usually asks for 2-3 things each time we go. We eat at the Altoona and Indianola locations at least once a month and have never been disappointed.

Loved this place! Not only did it have pizza and a huge salad bar, it also had fried chicken with all the trimmings. Great dessert with soft ice cream. Wish we had one in Denver area.

The Hubby, two boys 5 and 7 and myself went for a quick dinner out. The boys wanted pizza but I wasn't in the pizza mood so I thought we could go to Pizza Ranch. We had been there before and to tell the truth we didn't care for it. This time we loved it. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. They made a special pizza for the boys to put out on the buffet--which they loved. One of the young wait staff came by the table to chat and was such a nice and friendly person. The food was fresh and the boys got their pizza and I got my salad and chicken. It only cost us 22.00 plus 5.00 tip. It was a great place for families. It will be our go-to when we have a fun night out.
