Driving back from Iowa and checking in with our son who said he had pizza for lunch, it gave us the craving. Generally Pizza Ranch is a quick decent place for a traditional bite of pizza and maybe a couple other things. Could tell the minute we walked in that none of the employees wanted to be there. Slow at the register and not wore their bordom of work on their sleeve. Food was old and looked terrible. Pizza topping were spread out 3 plus inches from the end of the crust, random dropped toppings not belonging on certain flavors, they were all made sloppy and lazy. Used plates bussed by the grumpy question "you done?" The Jo Jo fries - BLACK - not over cooked brown - Burnt black in the pan and never refreshed. As I read in another post we both asked ourselves why we didn't just do a fast food or gas station? These are situations I feel bad for the owners as I hope the don't approve of this type of management for their business, but we would not stop back.

We got here a bit before super and they weren't prepared to be busy as they ran out of food and took a while to replenish it.

After a long day of driving thought it would be nice to stop at Pizza Ranch. All the pizza on the buffet was overcooked and cold. When someone requested a pizza they bring it to their table then put it back into the kitchen, bringing it back put after it is dried out and cold. Been to a lot of Pizza Ranch, this was very disappointing.

Believe the reviews! Even if you like Pizza Ranch and want to like this one, you would be better off stopping at Mc Donalds or even Kwik Trip. The register was not staffed. When someone did get there, he must have misunderstood us, because the pizzas were mixed up, and we never received one of the ones we requested. The buffet was not well stocked, and was slow to be refilled. The tables were left dirty, even though there seemed to be more than enough staff. I was beyond not impressed and would not recommend this Pizza Ranch.
