“Slipping”
Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

This used to be a go-to place for a good meal, but the last few visits have been more than disappointing. The food on the buffet has been all sloppy and not as filled. The quality and selection has also greatly declined. In addition the meals have been lacking too. Ordered a steak and fries and 3/4 of the plate was empty! Not a good presentation. The cleanliness has also slipped. I won't be back until they get their act back together.

Reviewed September 23, 2013

We always stop by The Ponderosa on our way through town. Sometimes we stop in for a relaxing buffet (always super fresh) or just grab some good grub for the road at their drive thru...

Great food. Great atmosphere. Loved the steak and fried chicken, great salad bar. There is so much to choose from!!! The peanut butter fudge is a personal favorite!! Great service!! Always with a smile :). Great family atmosphere! Such a wide variety! A family restaurant where family is always involved whether its there's or your own!!

“Ponderosa on 62 south”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

This Ponderosa is one of the region's best. The owners are ever vigilant to ensure fresh entrees. The new freshly breaded chicken is awesome and so juicy and tender. Lots to choose from on the entree, salad, and dessert bars. A drive-thru window and/or call ahead option is also available.
