Visited twice in two days for breakfast. Probably the best breakfasts we had during our three week trip to the States. The staff were helpful and friendly. Highly recommend The Ponderosa.

Restaurant is average; service is good; owners are friendly, nothing outstanding except for chicken fried steak and real mashed potatoes.

The Pondo, as it's known locally, is one of my favorite places for lunch. I love the grilled cheese with green chilis and tomatoes and a side of fries. The food is always good, service is quick and prices are reasonable. It's not fancy, but it is homey. Love this place!

It was a Sunday and most places were closed so my friend insisted we go to a sit down restaurant instead of picking up a sandwich somewhere.
The floors were filthy as were the bathrooms. The special was fried chicken so I ordered that thinking frying the food would get rid of the germs. It was so overlooked that it was not edible. We decided to have the salad bar and the dressings looked like they had been there a real long time. The lettuce was nasty. Only one of us ate and that was an open face turkey dinner that was ok and served with cold mashed potatoes.
It is a shame because the people were all very friendly.

Took the family there after staying next door at Delores Mountain Inn for breakfast. Good breakfast for a family.
