    I got 3 pieces of chicken carry out. The chicken was amazing. I usually take the skin off but unable to resist that crispy goodness.

    We love Pizza Ranch, especially the Altoona Location. The only thing we would recommend is keeping the food bars as clean as possible. We also wanted to give your team kudos for always having fresh options and having such a respectful group of employees. You all are really pretty fantastic. Thanks.

    We were not at the Altoona restaurant. We were at the one in Marshalltown. We visited there before we went to Meskwaki for a concert on Friday March 6th at about 6pm . We asked & asked & asked for a BLT pizza and nothing. We had to wait 15 minutes for fried chicken . The salad bar was a total wreck. Browning lettuce. No ranch dressing. The soda fountain worked fine but that's about it. The worst experience we ever had at aza Ranch Restaurant. We always go to a Pizza Ranches around Iowa when we travel the state . Its always been good with great service. But not this time .

    I placed a carry out order and was told it would be 20-25 minutes. After about 35 minutes I went back to check on my order and was told it was being worked on. I waited about another 10 minutes before I received my order. It was 4 in the afternoon and the restaurant was not overly busy so I can’t think of any reason why it would take more than 45 minutes for 8 pieces of chicken and a side of potatoes. Will think twice before ordering carry out again.
