What the heck happened to Pizza Ranch buffet? As of the last few months, the quality of the buffet has gone downhill very quickly. The pizza is cold, the chicken is under cooked, etc. I know that sometimes that is usually what you get with buffet food, but I've had awesome buffet food there before. I'd have some friends and family come in over the weekend sometimes and they would want to go to Pizza Ranch. We visited this past weekend and it was the worst we've ever had. The pizza was very, very cold, the salad bar was warm, and the other food was either not done or otherwise just nasty. I think the next time they wanna go to Pizza Ranch, we will definitely make the drive to Orange City...the Hawarden Pizza Ranch has some serious issues !!

Pizza Ranch is consistent. The food it pretty good, usually done. Some stuff can sit on the buffet for to long and should be watched closer. It could also use a little cleaning throughout the night. I have noticed there is a big difference when the owner is working vs. when Rob is working. Rob needs to step it up. Quality goes downhill when he is in charge. So I would have to guess that Rob was in charge whatever day Saddened was there.

Why do you whine on this site, go to the Pizza Ranch website and do an online comment card. And I don't know why people put names of employees on here? I am sure if you were the targeted person you would not appreciate it!

Simon you don't know what your talking about. Rob makes the best pizza at the PR. The PR is nothing but kids working what more can you expect.

Nicely said Common Sense <(Great Name) & What. I eat there all the time & never had ANY problems. If I want a cetain type pizza on the buffet I asked & get it all the time. They even bring it to me.
Anyone that comes to this site & believes anything or post stuff on any board that is negative and/or slams someones character needs help! Let's put POSITIVE thing up about OUR Community to help it grow. Growth = JOBS..:)
Why do I even come to this site? Hum, Maybe to see if someone is posting good things about our town. I Like it here in Hawarden & most people in OUR Community are just great & they would give the shirt off their back if you asked!! Last Time on this site for me!!:(

Everyone has an oppinion, atleast respect it. Some good could come from the things being posted if ppl take what is said here, use it as constructive critism and build off of it. I agree though, adult respectful words need to be used, as well as mature adult behavior

I really don't think that Rob SUCKS fan is being funny. To me, it shows a total lack of intelligence in the way this is being handled. A "normal" person, with any intelligence would face the problem in person or with the owner of the Pizza Ranch. Sometimes mistakes are made and someone gets upset, but this isn't the way to handle it. Grow up, use your head, if possible and keep your personal stupidity just between you and Rob. Not this site.

WOW!!! No FOOD. I mean there was NO pizza, NO chicken, the Salad Bar was empty. What a HUGE disappointment. We sat and waited over 20 minutes for them to put Pizza's out (or should I say A pizza out, only 1)and it was a mad rush as everyone was waiting. Some tables were even going to ask for their $ back. It was the worst ever.

Who is Rob? I do agree with those that say the PR could use some help. We were there and had a little fam. get together. It was not good. I would think that without getting personal with anyone, that the comments on this site could and should be taken seriously by the PR franchise and step it up. Let's all make this town a place people want to come to, whatever the reason!

If you are really concerned about the Pizza Ranch and the town of Hawarden why don't you bring your comments directly to Daryl, he is a good guy and easy to get along with. Do you think he is really going to take peole serious on this website, all this will do is ruin the reputation of what has been a great addition to Hawarden for many years. How about the many years he has sponsored the 3 on 3 basketball tournament or all the free pizzas he gives out for the reading program. How about all the other fundraiser things he has helped with. Maybe if we're lucky enough we can continue to bash a company until it closes and then the next time your kids organization need s fundraiser they can go out of town to try and raise the money. People I'm sure Daryl would be more than happy to listen to your complaints and if you're too scared to complain I'm sure they have comment cards. Remember the comments left on here can ruin businesses and that has consequences for everyone. I'm not trying to be a jerk just trying to see all sides of it.

While I applaud your common sense approach I do not think anyone who smack talks on this website has the endowed genitalia to actually confront anyone, Old Timer
