We went to Ponderosa Steakhouse with 30 of our friends. I was pleasantly surprised to find a great variety & reasonable prices. I had the 8 oz sirloin and my husband had the grilled shrimp. We both had good portions with lots of flavor.

It's a Ponderosa! This place serves cheap steaks and has a cheap buffet. This would be a good place to take a family on hungry teenagers on a budget.

We hadn't been to a Ponderosa Steakhouse in a few years so we were excited to sit down and enjoy their food.

Only POSITIVE thing about whole exsperience was Rachel our server. She was fantastic. Wifes steak tips came out well done instead of med rare. Second time they tried it was worse, meat was stringy and had a very bad color. There was no 3rd. time. My food was alright, but I never expect perfect and I'm used to getting food... More
