Ponderosa closed in 2012, I think. November 2015, a new Denny's opened in the same location. Interior is new and contemporary. Service is iffy, but food is pretty good.

Food really went downhill here. Atmosphere needed updating desperately. Cleaning apparently was not a priority here either. Everyone must have agreed because they have been out of business for months now. Was really no big surprise.

This place is now closed. It should no longer be listed. It has been closed for several months. Look elsewhere. I recommend go to Red Robin instead.

Old, dry food on buffet, reused from previous day. No flavor. Chairs/booths are ripped, dirty, the carpet is filthy.

Thank Em D
