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.

This restaurant is usually pretty clean. They do a great job of keeping the buffet full. It's nice that they offer more than pizza. You can also have fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans and salad. If there is a pizza you would like, you can order it and they will serve it at your table before putting it on... More

We tried a Pizza Ranch in Hutchinson, KS a few years ago and didn't really enjoy it, but thought we would give it another try. Basically pizza ranch has tempura fried chicken, instant potatoes, canned gravy, small salad bar and skimpy pizza. 2 stars instead of one because it is at least inexpensive and most of the foods looked fresh.

This is a great place to eat buffet pizza and broasted chicken. I ate at one of the original locations in Iowa back in the 80s and they have not changed much at all. The whole family enjoyed the meal.

We took our family & friends to the Pizza Ranch after Emporia State's graduation ceremony a couple of weeks ago. The pizza was good, the chicken was great and the biscuits were the BEST. The salad bar was fresh and had many choices. I would definitely go back the next time we are in the area.
