Hey Cheri, Thanks for a great review! At Pizza Ranch, we serve broasted chicken, which cooks the chicken in a pressurized environment to make it more moist than traditional fried chicken. If you're more used to fried chicken, it can be deceiving, and seem undercooked....More

Our first time and it was AWESOME! Excellent selection of pizza. Chicken and salad bar was amazing and the ice cream and other desserts were the best!! Definitely worth the price, which was extremely accepted. Such a delicious variety.
