“Outlived its reputation”
Reviewed July 2, 2010

The building needs a major facelift, too old and never updated. The kids play area is sad. The pizza crust is like cardboard. The person in charge of the kitchen needs to get out of town and taste a real pizza. Where of where is the health department?

“Average Lunch Buffet”
Reviewed August 26, 2009

Tried the lunch buffet and was unimpressed. I visited with two co-workers and they had the same opinion. We visited around 1130 a.m. and the place was pretty empty, but started to fill up after about half an hour. They had a good selection of everything but the pizza. For our first trip, they had two pizzas to choose from. We thought there would be more of a selection as we were entering prime lunch time only to go back for seconds to no pizza available. We had to let the staff know there was no pizza and they were puzzled and replied "what, no pizza, we'll get right on that". Restaurant shows it's age and is a little grimy. Our group was here for 20+ days and we didn't return.

“Wash hands well!”
Reviewed January 25, 2009

"John's is a fixture of Ridgecrest; I heard it's been there for 30+ years and friends tell me that they used to eat there until their kids got jobs at John's and brought back stories about the kitchen and other unsavoury nooks and crannies. The place is busy; pretty well worked over by little kids and could use a good scrub down. The pizza is very respectable, but you can find better values at other places for some of the other menu items. Still, you can't beat the place if you want to drink in a little local desert culture - just keep the hand sanitiser close by!"
