They are closing. All staff was just advised today, 24NOV. I was just thinking while dining "wow, this place was built as a Ponderosa in 1968 and been one ever since." Then my waitress advised me of the news.

I will never again set foot in this place . The restaurant was disgustingly dirty and the food was much worse . Then to top it off I checked my bank account and they submitted almost double of what my actual bill was .

Hadn't been to a Ponderosa since we were children. Steaks and service was great. Tip... we didn't think the buffet was worth the extra cost.

The service was fantastic. The price was right & the food was good. I tend to eat too much with buffets but it was worth it.
