Alright, so how many times have you been watching who-knows-what on TV, and during the commercials, you see an ad for Cici's Pizza Buffet? Suddenly you're thinking "Cici's Pizza Buffet? What the hell? How come I've never seen one of those? Better yet, how come I haven't even heard of that?"
Yeah, that's exactly what I was thinking. One day about three weeks ago we were all watching something on TV, and one of their ads popped up during what we were watching. Shortly after the ad we all vowed to ourselves that we would get to a Cici's Pizza Buffet in the very-near-future, and we finally made our dreams a reality this past Tuesday night (May 12th).
A dream is almost too perfect of a description for this place too. Endless pizza of all varieties, endless desserts, endless pasta, endless bread sticks/ pepperoni-bread, endless salads, and bottomless beverages. That's right: beverages. Seriously, this place has everything, and the best part is you can take as much as you want, whenever you want. For just a small price of $5 (and an added fee if you want a drink), you can participate in the endless-pizza madness for as long as your stomach can handle. Unfortunately for me, I lost my receipt that I meant to keep for price information for this blog post, but the full price for the meal and the drink was no more than $9. With that being said, this is definitely the place to go to if you're looking for quantity or quality.
As expected, the slices of pizza were all fairly tiny, but you can't expect much else from a buffet. The pizzas were at most 14 inches in diameter, so you can imagine the size of the slice. Just look at the pic.
You'll have to fill your plate at least 2 times before you're satisfied, and you may even have to wait until they put out more pizza. They try and combat this small problem by giving you endless dessert, bread sticks, pasta and salads - this way you can forget about pizza for a second while you fill your plate with other kinds of food.
All in all, I think it's a safe bet to say that I can see myself making another trip to the one-of-a-kind Cici's Pizza. If you're really, really hungry and you're strapped for cash, then Cici's Pizza is the place for you. Although it may not be the best pizza you have ever had, it's bound to put a smile on your face, and chances are you're going to want to go back. They even had an arcade in the back of the restaurant, and we certainly didn't let that go to waste.
When you're hungry, this place is heavenly. As described by Cici's Pizza goer DJ Sophic, "It's a great place to go if you're high and broke."
