Do these still exist in Sydney ??

The good old 90's when you could go and eat all you want and then hoe-down on the soft serve ice cream...

The thought of that makes me feel ill, I remember loving it. Same with Sizzler, I loved their icecream, but seedy all you can eat is worse than deli meat.

There's one in Windsor, and it is crap!!

I hope not ... I have bad memories of gorging myself sick when I was a teen.

I'm surprised any of those 'eat all you want' concepts are still around, the potential health/hygiene issues would be phenomenal.  They aren't referred to as 'chew & spew' for nothing.

The only good thing about the Pizza Hut 'pig out' bar was the chocolate mousse and the choc chips to garnish biggrin.gif

My hubby loves Pizza hut all you can eat - such a bloke! It's actually good place to go with kids, as kids eat free and they have vegies and salad and hot chips and garlic bread... all stuff my kids eat! Hubby gets to gorge himself and I can enjoy two bowls of soft serve original.gif

ETA; We go to the one in Greenhills Maitland... Not very close to Sydney!!

There's one in St Andrews, between Liverpool and Campbelltown. It's walkable from my house, yum. We also have a Sizzler 5 mins by car away from us.

I love the apple pizza and ice cream, so good, but so bad.

I don't remember an all you can eat Pizza Hut.

But I do remember the plastic red and white gingham tableclothes, the smell of oregano as you approached the door of the oddly triangular shaped building, starting with the salad bar which had to include Thousand Island dressing, the little red pencils and the bendy alien toys.  biggrin.gif

Lake Haven doesn't do apple pizza though...
I grew up going to the one at Wetherill Park, my fave was the apple pizza!! *sighs*

There's something I'm glad to leave in the past. My memories of a salad made from alfalfa, bacon chips and thousand island dressing need to stay exactly where I'll always remain fond of them.

We have one left in Adelaide and it's nasty but love it. Would not touch the salads though. Love the pizza, garlic bread, crummy all you can drink plastic cups and the chocolate mousse. I also love to use the ice cream machine and think of times long gone when I worked in an icecream shop.  smile1.gif

As far as I know Brisbane don't have any Pizza Huts eat in. I thought the last one was at Arana Hills. It has now changed into a jewellery and coffee shop.

I had heard that the last Brisbane pizza hut restaurant was at Browns Plains but I have never confirmed that for myself.
I just wonder what else they've used the hat shaped buildings for because every restaurant I've seen has become either a solicitors or real estate agency.

We went to the one in Windsor late last year and it was re-vol-t-ing!!
The restaurant was so dirty, the toilets looked like they had not been cleaned in months, vomit up the wall in one badly cleaned off, the plates we all greasy (maybe their dishwasher does not work) we got there at 5pm when they start and there were still dirty tables from the night before.... never again!!!

LoL the one in Thornlegih is a Subway, still remember it from being a teen, oh the memories of the underground car park.... It looks funny they have painted the roof bright green, still cant discuise it's past though....

Funeral parlour - probably becuause the cool rooms were already there...

We were excited to find one when we moved to Ballarat a few years ago, as it was something from my childhood I wanted to share with my kids.

We went a few times and it was truly awful. ALL the pizzas were "manager's special" type things (ie a pile of left over toppings thrown onto a pizza). There were no *real* flavours - just an on going pile of leftovers banged onto pizza bases. No effort in varying the bases either - sometimes there'd be all thin crusts, and another there's be deep pan or nothing. You'd have to wait because all the pizzas would be gone and no replacements brought out, and even the salad bar was sorry and sad.

I used to LOVE those bacon chips. I cannot imagine WHY my parents would let me eat as many as I did - yuck yuck yuck! We were allowed only one serve of dessert yet I was allowed to pile those little pills of salt onto my plate multiple times!!

Their pizzas are so gross, I'll be quite happy if I never eat one again.
