    They are opening one relatively close to my house. Should I assume it sucks?

    Depends on how much you like fried chicken.

    It is a slightly better Ci-Ci's pizza if you've ever been to one of those. But with less selection because they got fried chicken.

    Don't you even dare try to put Pizza Ranch down on the same level as Ci-Ci's pizza.

    Pizza Ranch is ok for what it is, and the fried chicken is good (maybe a bit salty).

    This is incorrect. It actually depends on how high you are.

    Which has a direct correlation to how much you like fried chicken. The circle of life.

    To give you some context compared against national chains (in my opinion):

    Papa John's
    Pizza Ranch
    Domino's
    Pizza Hut

    I like Pizza Ranch. I don't always care for the price though.

    I prefer Pizza Ranch to CiCi's. Been to a lot of them, as it seems like my kids' sports teams always stop at one because they are starving after a game and you can get a lot of food fairly inexpensively and quickly.

    It is not fine dining, but the food is consumable. They always seem to ask if there is a certain kind of pizza you want on the buffet. Different ones have different things, sometimes there will be mac and cheese as well as mashed potatoes with the chicken, so they hit the foods that kids like. They usually have a decent salad bar. My kids always like the cactus bread but they have dessert pizza and soft serve ice cream too.

    It's pretty good and their desert pizzas are solid.
