We decided to try Ponderosa but we wanted to get lunch prices instead of dinner prices! We got there just before 4:00 pm. Unfortunately, they said we were 2 minutes late and the system automatically changes over. We looked at each other and decided to...More

It has been a long time since we stopped at Ponderosa. They need a facelift. The bathrooms are scary. But the food is still good. One surprise... the salad bar is no longer included with the steak. Umm. $5.00 extra.

I did not think that these restaurants even existed any more. Visited for the nostalgia, surprised at the quality of the food. Waitress and hostess were very friendly and helpful. It was a good visit with an old friend
