this has to be the best Ponderosa around or anywhere! The owner/manager is always buzzing around making sure everything is perfect. It is clean, fast and friendly. They food is always hot and the buffet always full. If they don't have something you wanted, chances are they may go find it for you. We go here regularly.

Ponderosa is one of the tastiest bargains around. The food is excellent (the sirloin tips, especially!) and the service is awesome. There is an enormous buffet that serves everything from meatloaf to tacos to a simple dinner salad. Food is a good price and always delicious!

They don't have the best food, not much to choose from and expensive. Staff was not all that friendly, some were. It's just an ok restaurant with a high price tag.

We ate on Tuesday evening because kids eat free. Food was good, place was clean, and server was great. I just didn't give it a 5 because there was nothing spectacular about it.

There is a reason that his Ponderosa is still open. It is very clean, and there is a large selection of food on the buffet, at a reasonable price.

I know Ponderosa is a chain, but this one is particularly clean. The owner, Tom, really cares about his business and goes out of his way to accommodate his customers. I also truly appreciate the fact that I get a military discount for my time I spent in the Army.
