Ponderosa Canovanas

Ponderosa first opened its doors in 1984, and since that time it has been one of the most popular buffet steakhouses around. Choose from the a la carte steak and shrimp menu, or fill you plate up as many times as you want from the buffet. The choice is up to you.


At its heart, Ponderosa is a buffet, featuring a salad bar and various other items so that guests can make themselves as big a meal as they desire for one set price. But the word "Steakhouse" is also a part of the Ponderosa legacy, and guests also have the option of choosing amongst several a la cart steak and shrimp offerings from the menu.

Ponderosa Canovanas is a popular buffet that happens to specialize in International cuisine. The formality level you should expect at this restaurant is very casual. They are open for business during breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so your family can sample their cuisine at almost any meal.
