“It's a Ponderosa - what do you expect?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Been a long time since I've been in a Ponderosa. Forget the steak plates, the buffet is the value. Especially if you like to eat until you POP! Pretty good vegetables, though.

“The service could be better.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

The food is decent, but the service and the dessert bar need a little work.

We had a great time eating at Ponderosa. The staff were very nice and helpful. I think I ate to much. Oh well it will be worth it again!

“for the money, go somewhere else”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

My shimp were ok, but the buffet was not fresh and it was not worth the money. Wait staff not very attentive either, seemed to be an unhappy atmosphere the day I was there.

“Met my expectations!!!! However, they were quite low.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

I wasn't disappointed, Ponderosa just isn't what it was years ago. Enough said.
