CiCi's Pizza is hosting National Guest Appreciation Day on September 6 and offering their pizza buffet for $2.99. The regular price of their buffet is around $5 so if you are a CiCi's fan, this is a good savings. Here are the details from the press release:

"To thank its loyal guests during the busy back-to-school season, CiCi’s Pizza will host its first National Guest Appreciation Day on Sept. 6. Participating restaurants will offer CiCi’s Pizza’s endless buffet for just $2.99 all day from 11 a.m. until closing time. (Closing times vary.)

CiCi’s custom pizza buffet is always ready, fresh, hot and full of more than 28 piping hot pizzas on rotation, delicious pasta, hot soup, crisp salad and oven-baked desserts. Their buffet offers a wide variety of classic and specialty pizzas to fit every taste bud in the family, including the new Italiano Garlic and longtime fan favorite, the Mac & Cheese pizza. New to the buffet line-up are Garlic Parmesan Knots, CiCi’s house-made dough, rolled in garlic butter and parmesan cheese and baked to perfection.

    It's okay pizza, not as good to me as Domino's or Papa John's, but the buffet is cheap and who can't use a good cheap meal from time to time. This special pricing makes it even better. I also think their desserts are pretty good too.

    Usually when I eat at CiCi's, it's when I don't have a lot of money to spend and need to get something to eat. Both of the ones I've been to have been pretty low-end in respect to the cleanliness and decor, etc., but as others have mentioned, you can't beat the price (especially on September 6.)

    I've always thought of them as a Pizza Inn wannabe - same general idea of offering several different types of pizza to choose from (I remember them all being thin crust), plus some dessert pizzas, pasta & salad bar, etc.

    @ nakabi - if you like eatin' cardboard, then you'll love cici's. it's been a few years since i've eaten there, but at $3 for all you can choke down, maybe i'll give 'em another chance...

    thanks to everyone for the headsup on the pizza :) my husband LOVES pizza, but we try to stay away from it due to the high calories/sodium it has. we might just have to check it out on th 6th though :)

    Agree, this is more a place to feed the endless appetite of teenagers and kids but it works very well for that purpose and keeps you from having to get a second mortgage to feed pizza to kids. One great option locally is Papa Murphy "take and bake" pizza that they make fresh when you order and you cook it at home. I love VERY thin crust and they have that option too. Usually a couple of specials per month posted in the window and you can get good coupons in your email if you sign up. A large 1 item pizza can be had for 6 dollars, comparable to Little Caesars but a much better pizza

    I agree with Oxymoron02. For the price, especially this 2.99 deal for a buffet, it is a great value. The pizza is very different from any other I've had but not bad. I think Little Ceasars pizza is better honestly, but for $5 there you only get 1 pizza. At Cici's you get unlimited for about that price, if you're willing to eat in.

    nakabi, for a cheap pizza buffet it is acceptable pizza. It's not great pizza, but it's not bad when you consider the price. The trick is evaluating the product as what it is, cheap pizza.

    I have teenagers. By comparison, for $5 my son (he'll be 16 tomorrow) can trivially down 2 whole pizzas at Cici's and still want, and can go back for, more OR I can spend $10 getting him a large pizza with his favorite toppings at Papa John's and he'll then start stalking everyone else's pizzas hoping we didn't get toppings he doesn't like (we always do, it's self defense) before giving up and making a half dozen grilled cheese sandwiches.

    If you want *good* pizza get thee to Hillsborough St near NCSU. There are a couple of excellent pizza places there, but be prepared to pay upwards of $20 for an excellent pie.

    My kids have eaten it but I have not had it, so no feedback for you. Sorry. The kids like it, but they will eat any kind of pizza! lol I think they especially like the dessert pizzas.

    I know several people who love this pizza..does anyone know if it is any good?
