4/3/2013 Update – Unfortunately, the Pizza Hut at 1344 South Rangeline Road in Carmel that offered the buffet has closed. However, they do still have a carryout and delivery location at 705 South Rangeline Road in Carmel. The closest Pizza Hut restaurants with dine-in options and the lunch buffet are in Indianapolis, Fishers, and Noblesville.
I feel as though it would be somewhat insulting to pizza fans reading this website to actually try to tell them about Pizza Hut. Nobody should actually need to read a review on Pizza Hut unless they aren’t really even sure what pizza is. Pizza Hut is probably the first pizza place I ever went to, and I would think that it has to be the most recognized one in the nation (if you would like to read up on its history, you can here). I still frequent the Pizza Hut buffet at their restaurant in Carmel from time to time, but, sadly, I don’t think it has ever been the same since they were forced to move out of their free-standing restaurant and into one in a strip mall. While Pizza Hut may not always be the most exciting option, I do believe they deserve credit for continuing to offer new options and different pizza styles like the Big New-Yorker or stuffed-crust pizza, and they will always offer some nostalgic value to me at least.
