    Very pleasant cashier
    Ordered 3 pizzas for pickup. One of the pizzas had waxed paper stuck to the bottom. I had to peel the paper off to eat my pizza. It was NOT the same paper that is in the pizza box. Disappointed in that pizza. Other 2 were fine.

    Quality of food declining rapidly. Pizza was cold and rubbery. Chicken fried to a dark brown/just this side of black. We couldn't finish what we had taken off the buffet line it was so bad.

    Best chicken anywhere. Sure miss the pre-pandemic ice cream toppings, but maybe they'll eventually come back!

    Well first off. There was just 2 young kids working the front. We were there about 2:30. There was no shredded lettuce on the salad bar so I asked for some. There was just a few pieces of dried up chicken so I asked for some. There was no ice cream so I asked them 2 times about it. There was no dessert pizzas so I asked them for it. There was dirty dishes just sitting on tables and not getting picked up.
    My suggestion would be to be better prepared on a Saturday afternoons. I noticed several soccer & baseball families come in after us so there was lots of people. So I’m sure the amount of food available was slim. So I’m sorry to say it wasn’t a very good experience.

    Almost an hour late, no one contacted us to let us know of delay. We called in and they could not give us an ETA. When it did show up, it was definitely not hot anymore.

    It was absolutely awful in so many ways. Food dried out, dining area floor dirty, dining tables had lots of dirty dishes left on tables, waited for 4-5 minutes for someone to come to cash register when we first walked in. I have intentions are to write Pizza Ranch Corporation with all the complaints. Will not go back as long as the owner of this franchise still has ownership of this location.
