I never really had a problem with Ponderosa until a few years ago when they started selling chicken wings in bulk. My entire family got the outhouse trots after ordering a large batch for a family event. I am not 100% sure the wings were the culprit but they were the only item that we all ate in common.

Other than that one episode all has been fine. The owner is a very nice guy and does quite a bit with charities around the community.

We have eaten there alot. Like the food but some servers are slow.....they don't get as big a tip as others but still get a decent tip from me.

I've had multiple bad experiences with ponderosa; it's gotten as bad as my children referring to it as "pondogrossa"..I will never be back to that resteraunt.

About every waitress makes 2.15 an hour..that doesn't make up for the lack of good service they provide, or the food that isn't up to par.

But...It is not the servers fault if your food is not to your liking. Tip your server and complain to the manager. If you have an issue specifically with your server that's when you skip the tip.

I do tip well over 15% where ever I go, because I also work at a job where I rely mostly on tips for my income- I just will never be back to ponderosa. Their kitchen, especially their walk in fridge hardly meets health code standards..if you only knew how bad it was back there....
