My husband and I live in Chillicothe, but drive to Circleville because of the quality of the food. Normally the salad bar is kept very clean, and stocked up. They take good care of the hot food on the bar as well. We both feel...More

This Ponderosa was filled with senior citizens and we soon discovered why! The cashier asked us if we wanted our steaks to go. I found that strange - until I saw the included buffet! There were at least 200 items on the buffet! This was...More
