“Better than we expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Grabbed a pizza to go and eat at the hotel on the last night of a cross country trip. Great pizza? No, but decent, and for the money, a good buy. We've never been to a "Pizza Ranch" before, and there aren't any in our home area, but if we are on the road looking for a quick, inexpensive meal, we'd keep our eye out for Pizza Ranch.

“Great for Teens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

The Pizza Ranch buffet had 8 or 10 pizza selections, fried chicken & sides, a good salad bar with soup, and a dessert station with dessert pizza and ice cream. The pizza was crisp thin crust and better than Domino's (not as good as Papa Murphy's). My teens loved it & I was happy with the salad and chicken choices.

“Basic pizza with lots of variety”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

Pizza Ranch is a place to get filled up for very little money. At lunch there are 10 kinds of pizza on the buffet and they will make anything for you and bring it out. Tasty: buffalo chicken pizza. They also have fried chicken and a so-so salad bar.

“Great Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

Any topping you could think of and if you wanted one with your favorite toppings they would make it and bring you the first slice. THey also had a decent salad bar, several types of chicken, potatoes and a vegi.

“Should be a national chain!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Pizza ranch should be a staple nationwide but they have them in the plains and some parts of Illinois. Its a all you can eat buffet. You can order carry out or delivery. Pretty much any type of pizza you want. Our favorite is the bronco and the buffalo chicken pizza. Salad bar is very fresh, they have excellent service. You fill up your own drinks. So good you want to go home and slap mama!
