After pestering us for years with local television and radio spots, we’re finally getting a CiCi’s Pizza within driving distance.

CiCi’s Pizza Buffet will open Monday (February 15) in Chino Hills, at 4200 Chino Hills Parkway.

The buffet will normally cost just $4.99, but if you happen to be one of the first 100 people in line on Monday, you’ll receive free buffets for a year!

The announcement of the new 4,800 square foot restaurant comes nearly a year to the day since a certain blog post lamenting the barrage of advertising and complete lack of restaurants within California was written.

Of course, since then things have changed. The Chino Hills restaurant will be the third in the state, following a CiCi’s Pizza Buffet in San Diego and a CiCi’s Pizza To Go in Gardena.

CiCi’s offers 18 varieties of pizza, including specialty pizzas such as Buffalo chicken, BBQ, Mexican pizza Ol, spinach Alfredo and macaroni and cheese.

Besides pizza, the buffet also features pastas, salad and desserts. In addition to the buffet, CiCi’s will sell single-topping 15″ take-out pizzas for $4.99.

I’m still a little curious to check it out, but for $4.99 for all you can eat, I can tell you I’m not expecting much.
