Cici’s Pizza Buffet – A Review

October 26th, 2006

Saturday we took the kids to Cici’s Pizza Buffet for lunch. I don’t think any of us were that impressed. For one, the $4.50 price on their site is a bit misleading because it doesn’t include drinks, whereas most other buffet prices I’ve seen do. No biggie, though, since the drinks are $1.50 making it $6 for the buffet which is still cheaper than most. Kids under 12 are $2.95 plus $.99 for their drink.

My bigger complaint is that the buffet itself is rather small and disorganized. It isn’t double-sided which makes it difficult to get your food if there’s anyone else at the counter at the same time. We went when it wasn’t very busy, so I can only imagine how it would be on a weekend evening.

The food was so-so. The pizza was good, the pasta was gross (this coming from a girl whose favorite food is spaghetti (Joe’s daughter)), and the salad was just ok. There are three salads to choose from: ceasar, anti-pasto, and I forget the last one. But there isn’t any dressing as it’s already on the salad. You can add croutons, but that’s about it.

Oh and the drink station was a complete mess. Considering how empty it was, I don’t find acceptable how messy everything was. Tables were waiting to be cleared well after people left and since only one person was working the register, we had to wait for five minutes for two ladies to get their to-go order just so we could pay and get our food.

Overall, I wouldn’t say I hated the place, but it’s not somewhere I’d recommend either and probably won’t be back there for a long time, if at all.

    Only $4.50 for a buffet?? Even without a drink that seems dirt cheap. Maybe food is more expensive in California. I would compare that to maybe Sweet Tomatoes/Souplantation (or Fresh Choice) out here. Their main focus is salad, soup and muffins, but they also have some pizza. Their prices are around $8.95 which also does not include a drink.

    I’ve never been to Cici’s, but we’ve always wondered if it was any good because it was SO cheap.
