CiCis Pizza?

A Cici's just opened here in allentown and I really want to try it. Anyone have any good/bad experiences there?

  1. My husband loves the pizza buffet. He used to take the kids all the time when I was out of town, but the kids have pretty much grown up and don't eat out with him as often, so he's always looking for a CiCi's buddy. The pizza is OK, the pasta bar is OK, the salad bar is OK, and the cinnamon buns are pretty good. Well worth the $6.00.

      1. It's definitely not the best pizza you'll ever eat, but it's GOOD, especially for a cheap buffet, variety of pizzas, salad bar, (small) pasta bar, and video games. The apple dessert pizza is totally yummy.

        1. You get what you pay for and little else. The pizzas are sparsely topped for the most part, the salad bar selection is spotty (I was in Cici's once and they were "out of lettuce" - kind of hard to make a salad that way, huh?) and sometimes the pizza's just old and cold, depending on the time of day. However, the fresh-from-the-oven cinnamon rolls ARE great, the occasional deep-dish pizza offering is hot and tasty, and I really love the spinach alfredo pizza -- the first spinach I would eat in 42 years.
          Most places WILL cook you up a fresh pizza (or 1/2 pizza) of your choice, so long as it's not one already out on the buffet. My wife likes to order jalapeno & cheese only pizza or beef and jalapeno. It only takes a few minutes for them to run it through the oven.

          1. It's cheap, there's variety. As for the pizza itself, it's similar to the Chef Boyardee pizza kit that comes in a box. Edible, certainly.

                Not by much. The variety of toppings is what makes it.
