“Great for kids!”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

We have visited this restaurant twice and each time was fantastic for the kids. The buffet food is okay but the rides and games are worth the trip.

“Under rated!!”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

Ok, clearly this place is for kids, if you drive up and the the giant dog and then write a bad review because its geared towards kids that's not fair. So... My review is based on the pretense that readers are asessing this place for a family gathering. We love to go here with the kids. Lots of arcade games, but its cheaper than Dave and busters and I think better food, its a pizza buffet instead of a la carte bar food. The arcade is extremely large. Lots of room to run around. And if you haven't figured out that this is valentinos pizza, surprise! It is, its the same owner and the pizza tastes the same. I happen to love valentinos, so bonus for me!

“Fun for the kids!”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

We visit Omaha every year. We discovered The Amazing Pizza Machine on one of our trips and our kids ask every time we are back if we can go again. The food is pretty average, although if you can't find something to eat, it's your own fault! The salad bar is pretty good, they have a variety of pizza's and also taco type foods.
The kids LOVE the arcade and it's so big there isn't any waiting for games or a table or anything.
We'll continue to visit the place as long as our kids want to.

“Don't go for the food!”
Reviewed February 14, 2012

Every year my now 9 year old son want to go to The Amazing Pizza Machine for his birthday and we oblige him. The draw is that it features a huge arcade with games, rides, go carts, mini bowling etc. Kids earn tickets playing the games that can then be cashed in for prizes. There are many party rooms and parents have the option of hosting their own party or paying for staff to host the party. A birthday party at the Amazing Pizza Machine is the stuff that 6 year old dreams are made of!
About the food, The Amazing Pizza Machine features a nicely stocked salad bar, pizza, pasta, tacos, baked potatoes, and specialty items based on the day of the week. There is an expansive beverage bar with several kinds of slushies. The dessert bar contains dessert pizza, cookies, brownies and ice-cream. Most everything a kid likes to eat can be found at the Amazing Pizza Machine Buffet. The problem is that the quality/taste of the food is not very good. For an indiscriminating pre-teen palate, it's fine. My husband and I have taste buds that are a bit more refined, and we really do not enjoy the food. That being said, we will continue to take our son each year on his birthday as long as he still wants to go, because he really has a great time!
