I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Ponderosa. It's a fun place to hang out and all the bartenders are exceptional. The bands are pretty good and the drink prices are reasonable. The food is excellent. More of an older crowd during the week but rocks on the weekends. Karaoke is fun, too...
Ok, it's not a classy bar but if you want to relax and enjoy a night out this is the place. I have frequented the Ponderosa over the past 19 years and have enjoyed oldies bands and local bands. It's a casual local night club with a fun and relaxing atmosphere.
If you are looking for trashy people on the weekends, well this is your place. The bands are generally good, but nothing spectacular. If you are acrtually looking for a fun atmosphere, unless you enjoy being bothered by the most disgusting people known to man, do not bother coming to this place. Other options exist and I would advise to go with any other option.
I visited the Ponderosa, Bar Waitress are very rude, I sat there for about 45 min, never saw one waitress, so I went to the Bar to order and Bar waitress told me, she not a waitress, so I went to the kitchen and a mexican lady couldn't talk english. While I was waiting, I did listen to some nice karaoke singers. People were very nice, employees were rude.
Dive Bars are Okay, but this is by far the worst Dive Bar ever!! Pics. are decieving. Place is Dirty!! They have signs up all over that if your bill is over $50.00 they will add 20% gratuity. I have never seen this before in my life. The bartender said that many businesses in Temecula do the same thing. Hard for me to believe. I would NOT reccomed this place to anyone. We had 4 drinks. total. 2 Rum & Cokes (well) and 2 Martinis (Absolut) served in a baby Martini glass. The bill was $39.00.
