“Get the burger”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

The cheeseburger is why I eat here. I can order it cooked as preferred with choice steak fries, baked potato,or hash browns. The sandwich is quite large on toasted bun with usual toppings if desired. The buffet was clean, well stocked and fresh. Overall service was good and facility clean. Will return.

“Luke Warm”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Spent $33 dollars there and it bought me a luke warm prime rib steak that tasted like road kill. All of the buffet minus the chicken wings was look warm also. Never eat here. God help you if you do.

“Standard Low-to-Middle End Buffet Steakhouse. Nothing Special/Nothing Bad.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

The buffet is more limited in selection than some but still perfectly adequate for a meal if you're not looking for something special. I come to Princeton for business and sometimes the convenience to the hotel, the fact that I can get in and out quickly, and the chance to eat at my own pace and without needing assistance from the waiters make this the ticket for me.

“local eating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

While I like to frequent locally owned eating establishments over chains, this Ponderosa is convenient and has a good staff. Can make a good salad there.
