We walked across the street from the Hampton Inn which was handy. We arrived 5 minutes after the buffet closed, so the service wasn't prompt and they were mopping the floor etc. getting ready to close even though it wasn't closing time. The buffet looked very good with a nice salad bar and a hot bar with a nice selection... More

We had been traveling all day and this was perfect. Lots of choices and good service. Buffet items were hot or cold as applicable and kept full.

Pizza buffet offers good selection and pizza deserts. In addition a buffet with fried chicken and normal buffet item is available. Good food and good value.

It's a pizza and chicken buffet restaurant. Odd combo but they make it work. Food is pretty good and usually pretty fresh. Everything form salad, potatoes, ice cream and more. Buffet runs $8-10 depending on time of day. If they don't have something on The buffet you like they will make it for you. Be prepared to watch out for... More

I remember this place being built and telling family it would be an empty building in 6 months... I was wrong. Hard to believe they not only made it, being built right next door to Pizza Hut, but seem to always be busy. That's the biggest drawback, plan to fight people if you are going here. Pizza is ok and... More

We stopped at the pizza ranch while traveling. Due to the fact we have never dined at one before and it was right next to a Pizza Hut, we decided to flip a coin. We were greeted with much hospitality and the food was very hot, fresh and very delicious for a pizza buffet, they had great chicken on their... More

The buffet is awesome and you can anything from pizza to fried chicken. Excellent place to eat. You even get some soft serve ice cream in the end fixed with all the different toppings you'd like.

I always get a laugh when we pull up to this restaurant, because it is immediately next door to a Pizza Hut. The Pizza Ranch parking lot is usually pretty occupied, while the Pizza Hut lot is always deserted... Even so, in my personal opinion, this really isn't the place to go for pizza. It seems to be pretty tough... More

Service is great when you first walk in to when you leave. Food itself is always good and there is a great variety. I would definitely recommend the chicken and the Cactus Bread dessert pizza. Restaurant is clean and has plenty of seating throughout.
