Comfortable family atmosphere. Nice salad bar with large selection. Good selection of entrees. Could have had couple more vegetables. They have grill that serves steaks on the spot. Smelled great but did not have one. Good service and good sweet tea! Would definitely eat here again!

I held a meeting at Ryan's toward the end of May. The service was lacking. The atmosphere is that the restaurant needs to brighten up the place. The food was okay. I would not choose to eat there with my husband for dinner. I would not say it was terrible, but it's just not my kind of place anymore. When... More

This was not my first time to visit Ryan's Buffet but do not plan to return. There were not many choices because so many things were repeated. The food was mediocre.

We go to Ryan's occasionally and have gone many times. We have no problem with anything, as you are sure to find something you like because of the variety of things offered. As to when we traveled there, many times as I said before.

Yes, Ryan's offers a wide selection of dishes, meats, breads, and desserts. That worked for us when our kids were younger. During our last couple visits, it seemed like the food had become bland. This might sound crazy, but it also seemed like everything tastes the same.

Dirty, expired milk, bugs & cold good. Plenty of other places to go close by, I wouldn't take a free meal from here

This Ryan's is not going to win any awards for being an upscale dining experience, but if you want plenty of tasty options including steak made to order, this is your place. The price was great for my family, everyone found food they wanted, and the staff were courteous and attentive. My steak was cooked the way I wanted, so... More

Nice selection of salads, fresh fruit, hot side dishes, and entrées. Meat loaf was wonderful. Sliced bbq sausage was very tasty. Hot rolls are some of the best. Desserts were professionally displayed on individual service plates. They were presented so nicely! Service was perfect. Very nice staff. Provided the senior discount that made my lunch very economical. Try this buffet... More

My family and I have always loved Ryan's Steakhouse. We went there once a month before it closed in Waco. So imagine our excitement when we saw one in Waxahachie! We quickly turned around and zoomed in with a deep hunger. Upon arrival, it looked a bit outdated but the host was very nice. Prices were reasonable. It was after... More

I'm not sure why this place gets dogged so much. It's super clean, our server, Michelle, was fantastic, and the food is what you would expect for this sort of restaurant. The only issue seemed to be that the guy working the grill didn't want to be there and was cooking the steaks on the rare side and gave a... More
