“Friendly Staff and MASSIVE Steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We have been going to the 'Ponderosa' in Kissimmee across from the 'old town' in Kissimmee for years.

Its one of those places where theres a buffet (as much as you can eat) and you can add steaks and other goodies to enhance the meal.

Honestly, you could eat just one meal a day (in the evening) and eat nothing else and STILL get fat on vacation by visiting these guys.

This time I ordered a Double Sirloin Steak with the buffet and you know what - it completely filled a large plate! Cooked exactly as I like it and served by caring waiters who are always willing to chat about the economy, or the other food, or... well you get the idea.

Ponderosa has been emptier than it used to be but thats not their fault - its more the econony actually.

There are all kinds of food in the buffet and honestly, you can have a great meal from a massive mix of food including, chicken, sausages, eggs, salads, soups, fruits, deserts and much more for just the buffet fee which was less than $10.

And they have HOT Tea! Something lacking in many places in the USA but theirs was nice - they know how to do it right.

So for bargain quality food without the frills of 'high class' restaurants this is one of the best around in my opinion.

“Advertising was confusing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The food was good, but it costed more than advertised. Hidden costs included beverages. Not used to this type of buffet, but I'm up for new things.

“Breakfast is worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

You didnt need to order the extras with breakfast buffet, it was ample enough to choose from. Staff were polite and helpful. Some more so then other's. The more helpful they were the more we tipped them. Great choice of food on offer for breakfast there was fruit, cereals, pancakes, yogurts, jelly's toast, bacon and sausage. I would go for breakfast here again!
