This was a typical pizza buffet, nothing to really write home about. The salad bar didn't really have much of a variety, much to my disappointment. My (8-year old) granddaughter is a very picky eater, but since they had plain pasta in the buffet, we opted to go here. We dished up the pasta, and it was not warm at... More

We enjoy visiting Pizza Inn after church on Sunday. They have an excellent salad bar and a large pizza buffet with many different choices of pizzas, breadsticks and desserts. All the food is really good and you get a lot of good for your money.

Pizza Inn is cheap and the cookie dough pizza is the best, but that's where it stops. The pizza is the quality of Cici's and it is self-serve. The wait staff bring drinks and they are very friendly and attentive.

I think this is the best buffet in Knoxville. It always has plenty of choices and will make the pie of your choice upon request.

I've come here several times since they opened. And always loved the variety. The last few times I've been there has been maybe 5 pizzas I'm guessing because they weren't particularly busy but they should still offer a consistent experience regardless of the time of day or pace of business.Staff are always great very friendly and great service.

Seriously, don't even think about comparing them to chains like Cici's because it's a whole 'nother ball park here. All the pizza is delicious and there's an enormous variety! Going here for dinner is never a bad idea, even if it's a little crowded the pizza keeps up! Glad I found this place!

It is an inexpensive way to feed the whole family without spending a lot of money. The pizza was good. They will make you something if they don't have what you want. Also advertise a gluten free crust. Didn't try it. And I don't think it is a dedicated kitchen. But overall I do recommend it

My first job (30+ yrs ago) was with Pizza Inn and I remember how delicious the thin crust pizzas were. I'm SO glad to have this location nearby.

If ratings were only based upon quality of food only, this place would rate a 1 or 2 star. Pizza isn't very good, salad bar a tad better. Service was surprisingly good, and price is low...thus an average rating.
