when i was a teen my brothers would take me to pizza buffets as a treat and where i lived there were dozens of different kinds.. now as i age i have seen them slowly disappear.. pizza hut used to have one but most of theirs are gone.. i cant remember the ones i used to go to (it has been like 15 years lol) and other than cici's pizza i dont know of ONE pizza buffet place in this city! are like food codes or prices making them be a thing of the past now?? i really liked going to them and cici's tends to make me sick.. where did all the pizza buffets go?!?!

I used to love going to Pizza Hut buffets there are none left in my area now and I really miss them. Its a pity they are gone and if I had the money I would love to start up my own.

i have not tried eating in buffet. cause i don't eat often in pizza house cause they are not cheap place to eat at. but i wanted to try to eat there sometimes when i have the time to eat outside and when i have the money though. i think that it will be great to eat buffet. but what do they served in a buffet. i have not heard that we have a pizza hut buffer here in my country in the philippines. maybe it is not for all countries.

they usually have a salad bar and then like a dozen or more pizzas with different toppings on the bar (some places more than a dozen.. really depends) and its all you can eat

so basically you mean we can eat all that we can eat that is served on the table. do you get to choose your own topics and they will just cook it after they have chosen the toppings. or is it cooked already then you just have to add more toppings if you would like to. anyways, i think that eating in a buffet. but maybe they are just serving those toppings that are not expensive and does not taste great or not much people like them that is why they are offered in buffet. and for those toppings that we would like to eat more they will not be included in those toppings on the table.

You are right. Must pizza huts have stopped the buffet thingy however i am soo lucky because the one near my house still holds on pizza buffet. I went twice and there was alot of people. However, I am trying to not go there to often since I want better curves for this summer :P But it's really a treat...like once a month or every 2 months.

I don't know of many pizza buffets near me. I wish we had a Cici's close though. I love them but then closest one to me is 40 minutes away

My husband told me about Ci Ci's (I think that's what the place is called) and I don't think we have the place up here. I still see them advertized on american TV, but don't know if they're advertizing a buffet or not. I went to the Pizza hut one years ago and loved it. Good question. Where did they all go?

yeah there is still cici's but their quality isnt as good and i swear it ALWAYS makes me sick! but i do like that you can request a certain type of pizza for the buffett and them make it
