STEAK IS OUR 

MIDDLE NAME.

SINCE 1963


Welcome to Ponderosa Country. Where today’s families find the spirit of the Old West, the flavors they crave, and honest-to-goodness value. Where people find a place to call home and where aspiring and established business owners find an opportunity unlike any other.

Our restaurants offer something special, something we call “Freedom by the Plateful.” We have been franchising since 1966, and today our chain has grown to over 120 company-owned and franchised restaurants in 10 States and six countries and territories outside the United States.

If you share our passion for great food, great times and great opportunity, Ponderosa could be the perfect business for you.
