Terrible wait staff & terrible food. Place was dirty. Place closed suddenly in January....... GOOD. Maybe another decent place will take its place. Years ago Ponderosa was a good place to eat...... what happened!?

Older restaurant which needs updating. Typical buffet food was OK but I would choose something different next time.

Growing up in the 60's, 70's, I used to go to Ponderosa a lot and this place should have been the 2014 version of that experience. When I go to McDonalds occasionally, it's more or less the same (but updated) as it was when I...More

I hadn't been to a Ponderosa in years, but they have evidently gone downhill. The steak was tasteless, the restaurant is old, and the buffet selection is nonexistent.
