To our Valued Guests:
Thank you for dining with us since 1994. It has been a great run for us. Unfortunately, the pandemic was too much for us to overcome.
Effective at the end of business on June 20, we will be closing our doors permanently.
Thanks for letting us serve you and for all of the great memories!

  1. I’m heart broken!! That was the place my mom always wanted to go eat whenever I came for a visit. She couldn’t get there on her own anymore. She passed away July 12, 2018 and in her honor, we had the meal after her funeral at your place. After she passed away, whenever I came to town I would have lunch there. (It was our thing) Ponderosa has a special place in my heart forever and I will really miss having (our) lunch there. Thank you for all the good memories you have given me!
