  1. There was a Ponderosa on Diamond Hill Road in Woonsocket. The one in South Attleboro, MA, is still open!

    1. Not anymore. It closed a couple years ago. Was empty for some time. It has just finished being remodeled and a medical clinic or such is set to open there.

      My first job ever (paying job that is) was a dishwasher at this location. Ah, memories.

  4. My uncle was the manager at the Oaklawn Ave location for quite some time. He now owns Ed's Roost in East Greenwhich. Open for breakfast and lunch, BEST breakfast in the state!

  5. This may come as a shock! But Ponderosa Steakhouses are STILL in business! I have provided a link to their Facebook page to check out! https://www.facebook.com/ponderosasteakhouse/

  6. But the nearest one appears to be in Rutland, Vermont, which makes them even rarer than an open Bickfords.

  8. Awesome memories of going to Ponderosa. Loved the dessert bar as a kid of course. And eating hamburger with steak (A-1) sauce. I felt so grown up and fancy, lol.
