Although the pizza is good, I would not recommend the buffet. The pizza comes out slow and not fast enough for someone who only has 30 minute lunches. restaurant is also a little dated and could use a facelift.

How do they stay open? My husband and I went in for dinner. The restaurant was nasty. After more than 5 minutes, the waitress ambled over to tell us we probably wanted to go somewhere else. When asked why, she said because the guys in the back were lazy and slow.

The place is clean, contrary to how it was a year or so ago when i was there. When i came in stood near the sign that said in effect "wait to be seated" the employees looked at me dumbfounded and couldn't seem to understand why i was there. I said the sign said i'd be seated. The lady gave me sweet tea, i wanted unsweet. I ordered super supreme thin and crispy, received a supreme hand tossed. The lady dropped it an ran away before i realized. Didn't want to be there all night and wait for what i ordered. No service, i went to the counter to get more ice tea. Told the lady at the register, she made it clear she didn't give a damn.

I was visiting the area and wanted to see if the local Pizza Hut had a dine-in salad bar. I called the number to inquire and was in hold for 5 minutes. The number goes to a central call center in San Antonio Texas and the operator was unable to give me any information about the salad bar??? I physically had to drive to the restaurant, walk in and look to see that they didn't have one. Ridiculous! Get a DIRECT LINE TO YOUR STORE!

I am very disappointed in the disintegration of the overall establishment and the level of customer service, although it is in line with several other local "fast food" type places (which is why I do not like to rate fast food...high turnover, variance in standards, etc) due to a local apathy towards customers service.

If an individual in this town wants pizza, they have a few options and Pizza Hut is one of 3 as far as this type of pizza. This is the ONLY true dine-in pizza place of this type, however.

We probably order from here at least twice a year. We use to dine-in more frequently however, with the dramatic drop in customer service, the aesthetics and cleanliness and overall experience, we have tried to avoid it altogether. The ONLY saving grace for the establishment is the "taste", and I'm banking on that being a standard recipe.

We arrived 1 1/2 hours before closing. The floor is ripped up and exposed concrete with a HUGE trip hazard where it breaks from concrete to tile. It has been this way for quite some time. The salad bar has been REMOVED, even though they continue to advertise salad bar. In fact, they throw some iceberg and a sliced tomato on top and toss it in a fridge.

There were approximately 20 tables in the place. About 6-8 were occupied, two of them with very large groups. The other tables were all dirty. They very rude woman (I'm assuming she is the manager but maybe not) told us she didn't have time to clean the tables so we could wait for 20 minutes. Then she went to an adjacent table and told them NOT to put anything on this table, making a motion to a pseudo cleaned table, because we were going to sit there.

At least we got a seat (There were 3 of us and it was a huge table for 6-10).

I guess the overall issue with this....NO ONE CARED and NO ONE OFFERED ANY TYPE OF PROFESSIONAL SENTIMENTS about the mess, the delay or their stress. It was as if we could just adapt or leave.

The temperature in the place was so cold, my teen who NEVER gets cold was shivering. My lips were turning purple. We were all wearing sweats and long sleeves, gloves and beanies or hats. It felt 20 degrees warmer outside and I bet it wasn't even 65! We were all shivering violently and decided we could only eat ONE slice of pizza each and then had to leave.

The promptness of the service was about 20 minutes.

There were what looked like 7-10 employees all behind the counter. They were very loud and unprofessional, yelling at each other with loud obnoxious jokes. Someone dropped a glass in the pizza making area (THANK GOODNESS OUR PIZZA was done).

Glass splatters when its broken...they swept and moved on.

The rude woman (she looked to be in her late 50s) started bussing the tables AFTER the two large crowds of diners departed. She slammed plates together like she was mad!

I was scared to ask for anything else.

Pizza was standard but you know, I just don't KNOW with how they acted if my pizza was truly safe.

This place is worth a call to the Texas Department of Health!!!!!

POOR service. POOR professionalism. POOR communication. POOR environment. POOR aesthetics. POOR attention to safety. POOR lack of menu offerings - seriously, what PIZZA HUT does not have a self-service salad bar??? We will probably not be ordering from them any more and will certainly use our abilities to deter others from doing so, at least until they clean up their place and obtain some ORDER and PROFESSIONALISM, at minimum.

Not returning!
