Review of Pizza Ranch

Pizza Ranch
Ranked #14 of 78 Restaurants in Apple Valley
Cuisines: Pizza
Description: Join us today at the Ranch. We're serving up the best pizza in Apple Valley, Minnesota, alongside the Country's Best Chicken® and our classic cactus bread. And it's all on our Buffet Your Way, where any flavor you're craving is made-to-order. Find us at the center of family fun. The Minnesota Zoo and Apple Valley High School are both less than 10 minutes away, so we're the perfect stop on your way home from visiting the bears or watching the Eagles. Then burn off some energy in our indoor basketball court! Our two party rooms combine to hold up to 80 people, so bring the crew and your appetites-we're set to satisfy both.

This Pizza Ranch is the most convenient for gathering the gang. We had 5 adults and three kid from 3 to 11. We arrived about 7pm, still the dinner rush time. We were able to pay promptly, and had many choices of clean tables even though it was still busy. Everyone got their pizza, fried chicken, salad, and drinks; and came back for more. The 'pizza' desserts and ice cream followed. The food is fairly uniform from site to site, but we do see the employees being very attentive and nice to the kids. This is important to us, and will keep us coming to the Pizza Ranch when we go out with the kids. One of our granddaughters (age 6) went to the buffet by herself, didn't find what she wanted, and was able to order it from one of the employees! The kids also love to take a break, play in the basketball room, and come back to finish. Where else can you do that?

The food is average although it isn't as good as other Pizza ranches such as the one in Albert Lea,Waseca or Lakeville. Plus the buffet doesn't run all day long like it does at other locations.

We have been here so many times!
It is a tradition after our music concerts.
Our scout troop fundraises here.
It is a unanimous choice with our family.
We all have our favorite pizzas. If they aren't on the buffet it's not long before they will be.
The salad bar is pretty good.
The dessert pizza and ice cream are delicious.
We usually sit by the basketball court so the kids can shoot hoops table side.
This visit wasn't our first time and it won't be our last.

I miss the days of the salad bar - pizza ranch has one of the last ones. Pizzas are blah. Dessert pizza are nummy! Floors could be cleaned - bites to stick to the floor when walking back to your table.

tried the buffet, The pizza was ok not the best pizza ever but far from the worse. The chicken how ever was very good some of the best I have had ifor some time. fresh and hot.The salad bar had a decent selection and the dessert pizzas were pretty good. All the employees were young but helpful and polite. The only hits I haveAre the music choices, the tables are kinda small and not a lot of room between them.
