“Better food than I expected”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

This is an all-you-can-eat buffet style restaurant with different stations for pizza, salad, pastas, and dessert. Plus tons of video and arcade games for the kids. You can choose different theme rooms to sit in - one that plays cartoons if you have little kids, one more suited for teens, a quiet room with no music, and several others. As expected, meat was hard to find, which I suppose keeps costs in line. However, the pizza was much better than I expected, and they offered quite a variety including a peanut-sauce pizza that was quite addictive. We went there for our Boy Scout troop's holiday party. I definitely recommend it as a fun place to take kids.

“Much better than Chuckee Cheese”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

Experienced John's Incredible Pizza for the first time for a birthday celebration. Better than I thought it would be as I am not a fan of Chuckee Cheese.

1) The line to get in can be very long. But if you coming for a birthday party there is a separate entrance.
2) You must be prepared to eat - as part of the entrance fee, each person gets access to the buffet
3) The buffet tastes better than it looks - pizza, pasta, salad, and desserts
4) It can feel very crowded - however, while playing games it does not feel that way.
5) For birthday party, I liked that they have private rooms to enjoy the party - unlike Chuckee Cheese. The party staff helped play games with the kids and the buffet proved to offer enough food and variety for everyone.
6) They even have about 3 rides inside

I dont think the pricing is too bad. Would be a little pricy for a larger family, but think of it as food and entertainment.

Come here if you want to celebrate something or just need a fun time with the family

I love their peanut butter pizza! After the meal, we played games and the kids went on some rides. A fun afternoon at John's.
