“Easy with Kids”
Review of Pizza Ranch

This is a family-friendly choice since the kids don't have to wait for their meals to be cooked. At times we have found that the kitchen does not keep up with the demand for food on the buffet. Take advantage of their offer to make a request when you purchase the buffet. They'll make your pizza to order and deliver it to your table before placing it on the buffet. Your dining party can then take as many pieces of pizza from it that you wish. Buffet choices include a salad bar, chicken, mashed potatoes, pizza, etc. Sometimes the ice cream machine doesn't work, but there is usually another option (e.g. dessert pizza) to satisfy the kids' sweet tooth.

This is a family style restaurant that can offer you home-style foods like pizza and chicken at its finest. You'll get your fill or they won't let you leave. Doggy bags have been seen leaving with many a customer.

Three of us went for dinner and food was fine usual Pizza Ranch food but my complaint is the manager. He was talking with friends a couple of tables behind us and was swearing in every sentence. A family with three children were sitting next table and the father spoke to him about his language. He said I am sorry and five minutes later he was doing the same thing at another table. Clearly improper and he needs to be reprimanded. Be careful when you go because you might here more than you planned on.

Food here is always fresh and consistent. Tonight the restaurant allowed the Girl Scout Troop to clean tables and deliver food for tips. I think that is a great idea to teach responsibility. I have eaten here atleast 10 times. I have never had a bad experience at this Pizza Ranch (this is a corporate store). I really enjoy the ice cream. It is a thick good quality soft serve. If Keith working you will be entertained. He is such a nice manager. Kevin was the manager tonight. He stopped by every table and checked on everybody. If you ever have a dietary special request this is the restaurant. The employees appear happy and want to help.

We went to our local Pizza Ranch on a busy Sunday afternoon. Now granted, being a lower priced family restaurant, we expected it to be full of families and loads of kids and it was. They clearly weren't staffed or managed to handle the crowd though. Tables didn't get cleaned or only got cleared but not wiped down. For most of the time we were there, I observed no less than 8 dirty tables. They also ran out of food, especially the dinner items like chicken and potatoes. Pizza selection was spotty and the dessert pizzas were snatched up the moment they went out. If we go again, we'll aim for a weekday lunch when they can keep up the food and service better. A note to parents - please don't line jump just because you have kids to feed and then take 20 pieces of chicken at once. The rest of us have paid to enjoy a meal also.
