The food was cold and the place was dirty. We had a lazy server. I would not recommend anyone to eat here. My son and I had diarrhea after we left.

We haven't had ponderosa in years! It was fantastic and priced affordable. Meal was excellent and the buffet portion had a huge selection of hot and cold food. Buffet alone was a balanced meal

You chose you meal and pay before you sit down. Ask what offers they have first as that could have a bearing. The meals are fine although not fine dinning. The buffet is a mixture of salads, veg, potatoes, rice, pasta, pizza slices, wings. The...More
