I hadn't been to a Ponderosa in years. It made me think of the 1970s. This one had a buffet, which you had to order, if you wanted a steak at a cheaper price. Otherwise, you had to pay more for the steak!? I couldn't quite get my mind around this. Anyway, after some deliberation, 2 of us ordered the buffet, and one got a steak. The food was quite OK, and my wife's steak was good. The price was quite reasonable. I just don't really understand why a steakhouse had to do that bit with the buffet, it felt like an awkward way of doing things. I won't go back, I rather just go somewhere and order a steak off the menu. I should add, the staff was very nice, especially our waiter.
