This restaurant is affectionately called Pondagrossa. The food is really average. Pretty good value. Always clean. The workers are always super nice. The rolls were my favorite. The management is poor, unless they have improved in the last year. Always great with dealing with customers, however. I recommend getting a meal, have it boxed to go and then pay an... More

The buffet alone offers enough to eat and make it your meal. They offer so many different items and the desserts are very good and get variety. I never order steak just eat the buffet, well worth the money

I've been here several times. It is a typical Ponderosa. The service is pretty good. Food isn't bad. Kids seen to really like it.

The food today was hot and delicious. Good variety. Enjoyed. I thought $11.99 per person was a little expensive, especially with no drink included.

This is a buffet, but can order from menu. Food is good. Fried green tomatoes are my favorite. Wait staff are nice and take good care of you.

I have always been fond of Ponderosa and since they closed the location in my hometown whenever I travel I will eat there first. I love the buffet choices, and my steak was cooked perfectly. Service was good, all around good time.

Lunch buffet is well worth the price, they have many items and a dessert buffet. Service was good. I have never been impressed with their steaks because they taste poorly.

Came into town and saw this. Not the best at all. Wish I would have checked trip advisor first to see where else we could have gone. They didn't even have ranch dressing! I mean who doesn't have ranch??

Wife and I ate at this restaurant for dinner our first night in Goshen. It was a Monday night and their sign out front had a special of 2 people, 2 entrees for $22 that included the buffet. Decided we would give it a try as we got engaged at a Ponderosa in KS over 30 years ago. I had... More
