“Best Pizza Ranch”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

We've been to three Pizza Ranches and this one was by far the best. The food was hot, the chicken was juicy, and it was roomier than the other places we've been.

“Best chicken around”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

If you have a chance to drop by for some of the best chicken make it here. KFC is nasty compared to pizza ranch - the service is always excellent and attentive and even for a buffet! The mgr is on top of everything and the staff is so pleasant and accommodating. A rare find nowadays

Came to visit relatives in a play & was first going to Cracker Barrel. Wait was to long so we stopped in at Pizza Ranch. Pleasantly suprised by buffet & food! Good choice!

“A Novel Concept”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

It's been awhile since I've been to buffet that specializes in pizza. Most buffets offer some form of dried up cheesy-crusty pizza-type substance, but it seems only the children are brave enough to try it. Pizza Ranch is different. Pizza is what they do. The prices are equivalent to most other similar restaurants: around $10 for lunch and around $12 for dinner [prices may be discounted for seniors or children...not sure since we had neither age group with us.] The restaurant has a slight wild west theme going...as you may imagine, but nothing gaudy or over the top. They offer a small salad bar: salad and some toppings, cold mixed salads, puddings, soup, etc. They also have a hot bar with chicken, vegetables, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese,etc. Their soda fountain has a wide variety of options...even caffeine free sodas...or there's also coffee. Beverages are included with the price. Now...for the pizza. Typically, they have about 8 random pizzas out at a time. Their pizza menu is large, so you never know which ones will be up there...but they are all labeled so you know what you're getting. If you want something other than what's available...just find an employee and they'll help you place an order for ANY type of pizza you want...whether it's on the menu or your own concoction. Once your pie is ready, they bring it to your table so you can take as much as you want first before they add it to the buffet. Being a vegetarian, I especially like this option since I can't always eat what's already being served. The desert bar is tiny, but it does the trick. They have different flavors of desert pizza: cinnamon/sugar, blueberry, apple or peach. Also, their soft serve is honestly some of the most tasty around. They have employees who come around and clean up plates. There is a small 'activity' room off the dining area for children to play after they finish eating...if they're so inclined. This is a good place for families, friends or whoever because who doesn't like a great pizza? Also, join their free club to receive offers for discounts in the future...such as your birthday.
