First time eating there ever in life. Not so bad for the first time. I know it could have been perfect but we came in 1 hour before closing, so I didnt expect the best but I do know that this place is capable of being the best. I will visit again :)

I eat at this Ponderosa weekly. IIt has adequate parking. t is consistent and it is clean. The service is good. They keep the salad bar area clean and stocked. The main courses are adequate and seldom tardy. The servers are friendly and accomodating for the most part.

I enjoy the salad bar and sirloin tips and salmon. However my wife does not want to return there since she thought it needed cleaning.

Ponderosa is a family restaurant with decent price. I suggest to update the decor a little bit. The staff is nice and efficient.

The salad bar was the smallest I had seen at any Ponderosa and spills were not cleaned promptly. The steak was tough and overpriced. Not the best Ponderosa Ive been to.

I have never been to a Ponderosa state side so I didn't know what to expect. When we saw the pictures of food on the wall at the entrance, we knew it wasn't going to be fine dining. We didn't expect however to have to line up cafeteria style. By the time we figured out what the place was about... More

Terrible!! I went to the Humacao location and was disappointed. This used to be a family favorite, on Sundays we would all eat breakfast together. The server never brought the ketchup I asked for and never brought clean plates for seconds at the buffet. I saw woman reuse her plate at the buffet bar. The pastries were old and the... More
