    Cici's Buffet

    $5 all you can eat pizza, pasta, and salad. Not sure if it was worth it. What do you think?

    Hate it. If I want a Tostinos pizza I'll cook it myself.

    Kind of how I felt. I can get a Jack's for $3 and it's way better. $1.59 for the drink and you can't take one with you. Should have got Quizno's instead. Never had it though so thought I'd try it. The specialty pizza's are decent but the regulars were sub par. I did like the brownies.

    Re: Cici's Buffet

    Yeah, I wouldn't recommend it. I used to go because the kids loved it (I'll never understand little kids' pizza tastes). All I would eat was salad and their cheese bread. I have more salad toppings at home and the cheese bread was just tolerable, I wouldn't call it good. As others have said, you could do a lot better by just picking up a frozen pizza.

    Plus, drinks are extra, so it's really more like $7.

    Re: Cici's Buffet

    i like to eat cici's buffet. it's not top notch by any means but it is good. i do have friends say that theyd rather pay for a little caesars or have a frozen one but they also have amazing cinnamon rolls as well as brownies/ powdered sugar and a lot of different types of pizza. like i said not top notch but i definately think its worth the $5.

    Re: Cici's Buffet

    When it comes to CiCi's a certain phrase comes to mind. You get what you pay for. Do you want all the cheap pizza you can eat for $5 and eat in a very Walmarty atmosphere then Cici's is the place for you. I will echo the same response that my kids love it. Is it good pizza? No. If you want to be truly satisfied then skip the pizza and save all your room for the desserts. The banana and apple dessert pizzas are good. The brownies are ever so gooey. The cinnamon rolls are divine!

    The phrase "you get what you pay for" comes to mind. What you get at Cici's is exactly what I would expect to get at a $5 pizza buffet. Nothing more, nothing less.

    EDIT - just noticed the above post. I guess you get what you pay for when it comes to my posts as well.

    The phrase that comes to my mind is the trots or anal leakage.

    Totinos tastes better. Ate at one once and never again.

    If you are poor and hungry as ****, it's worth it. That is the only situation.

    That **** tears up my intestines. Haven't been back in about 5 years now. The cinnamon rolls were freaking awesome though, as has already been mentioned.
