Located just a short drive to Devil's tower we stopped here because food is scarce and hard to find. Glad I didn't judge the place on the exterior because the inside is homey and nicely decorated and the food,.....SPECTACULAR! Great hometown service and the steaks were cooked perfectly! They even offer buffalo burgers on the menu! Appetizers were great and beer was ice cold! Some complain about the open attatched bar but we had no problems with smoke/noise ect. You must make this a highlight stop if heading to the Devil's tower area!
We were visiting devils tower and asked where they recommended to eat. Great food, service was timely, cool atmosphere, prices were appropriate and lots of fun in the bar. See you next year when we drive through again
Thumbs up on the Pnderosa Steakhouse for being the most hospitable place in town on an early Wednesday morning. While a neighboring local business just didn't have to time to open their doors for just a few minutes in order for me to use their facilities, Ponderosa Steakhouse was understanding and welcomed me without hesitation. I want to thank them for their kindness and hospitailty. It was much appreciated on an early cold and chilly Wednesday morning. Thanks folks for making a visitor passing through feel the warm welcome that will bring me back again and again to see you when I'm traveling through.
Rolling into town in a big rig in the afternoon I found this place to be a great dining experience. The food was good, the service was fair, the prices were a bit over what I'd have paid at home but the overall experience was good.
The salad was fresh, great, good choices of toppings and not the usual dinner salad most places put out. The atmosphere was excellent particularly for such a small town. The special touches created a nice dining experience with the liter water containers and glasses adding that special touch making it just a bit more special.
Although I did have to have my prime rib returned to get a touch closer to my order as well as having to ask for what should have been normal additons of sauce ect. the all around dining experience was very good.
The one negative item I have to include that I feel diminished my dining experience would be when the door to the bar was opened and the cigarette smoke came pouring in to inundate me. Allergic to the cigarette smoke which we no longer have to deal with in Colorado while dining out I'd say this was the only really negative part of my dining experience.
Due to health reasons (I have asthma)!
Although the food was great, the sevice fair the one part of my dining experience was ruined when they opened the door to the bar and I was inundated with cigarette smoke. I'd have given this place a four or five star review if it weren't for that one detail.
