Ponderosa is one of our favorite places to go as a family for a meal because it has something for everyone. You can order of of the menu or you can get the buffet. The buffet is great for kids because they can choose what they want. The buffet changes often and has themes on certain nights. There is also a great dessert bar that the kids absolutely love. They have family night once a week and they feature a clown. The clown will come to your table nd make balloon animals for your kids but they do expect a tip which is a little annoying because how can you tell him no your kids don't want a balloon. It is really a great family restaurant.
