    I emailed the corporate office regarding our experience. I left out the part that my husband was up 1/2 the night vomiting.

    Our last 3 visits over the last 60 days have had stale, luke warm pizza, very limited on choices. Chicken was ok. Will continue to reduce our visit frequency until quality improves.

    Service when paying good.
    Food good.
    Keeping tables clear and clean sucked.
    When I was leaving most of the tables needed cleared and wiped for the next wave of customers.

    I went for lunch around 2:20, only to find that the lunch prices ended at 2 p.m. The pizza and chicken were both over cooked. Not much fresh food came out. The cups are smaller than they used to be so I was getting up to get refills more frequently. Overall, not a good experience.

    Not a pleasant experience. Buffets were pretty depleted: no spoons anywhere, only chicken breasts, pizza was dry/cold, all buffets were unkept, plenty of employees walking around empty handed, not sure what they were doing!

    Crowded but did an excellent job keeping pizza supply stocked up. Quick on the "my way" pizza. Great job Ames.
