Just like the neighborhood butcher shop when I was growing up, Rob and the crew at Ponderosa provide an exceptional level of quality and personal service. It’s no exaggeration to say that the difference in the quality of meat that Ponderosa offers and what you find in a grocery store are light years apart. Melt in your mouth delicious, and Rob is super helpful with cooking tips and serving suggestions – guy really knows what he’s doing. If you want to give yourself, family and friends a real treat, you need to serve up some steaks, poultry or even buffalo from Ponderosa!
The steaks from Ponderosa are fantastic! I don’t believe you can find better flavored meat because it’s truly aged beef and not that out of a box mule hide you get at the regular grocery stores. I can honestly say that the sirloins are better than most tenderloins at most restaurants in the PDX area. We got a PRIME grade Prime Rib for Christmas and had hoped to get a bigger one for our crew of 30 for dinner. The meat was so rich and flavorful everyone was thrilled with the roast. Whenever I’ve been there they custom cut my meat right on the spot or if I call in my order they have each steak vacuum sealed for the freezer and ready to go. It’s definitely worth the trip.
I eat turkey because they make me. Christmastime I assume Full Control, head to Ponderosa and order a 4 rib cut and tied Prime grade beef roast, aged to order. I do not fool around with this cow much. Cracked pepper, kosher salt and dried rosemary. There will be no talking after this rests and is served. There will be yummy noises.
If you really, really like steak, and enjoy the steak at your favorite steakhouse, but wonder why your steaks at home don’t taste quite the same… one of the reasons is that steak at the restaurant tastes so much better is that they use a PRIME grade of meat – instead of the CHOICE and SELECT grades you get at the local supermarket. I’ve gotten several cuts of PRIME meats here, the ribeye being my favorite, and every single one was fabulous. It’s not an everyday thing and I reserve it for special times… but when I’m ready for great steak at home… I stop by Ponderosa!!
Ponderosa carries a full range of grades always custom cut to your specifications. If they don’t have it, they’ll get it for you. Friendly and helpful service. I’ve gone in to buy three filets and was treated no differently from when I was walking in with a box to fill my freezer. They’re also willing to pack up your purchases however you like. For the cuts you’re getting the prices are excellent.
I’m not a huge meat eater, and I really don’t trust the stuff they serve in most supermarkets, so I was happy to oblige my husband’s idea of getting some quality meat from Ponderosa to grill up with some veggies. Once grilled and on the table, we really enjoyed that tasty, tasty meat. Great quality and cut! Prime does make a difference.
Best meat available, with excellent customer service (they would even cut a steak exactly how thick I wanted it)!
We recently threw a party and the main course were hamburgers. I called Ponderosa and found out they grind/make their own hamburger. Plus I could get this in pre-made patties, which saved me a lot of time. These hamburgers were delicious! Even my wife who rarely eats red meat was ecstatic about the great flavor (yea, she had one!). Lots of our guests raved about the burgers, too and wanted to know where we got them (oops, they know!). We’ll be going back to buy their Carlton Farms pork tenderloins and other meats. I’m really glad we took a chance. Thanks Ponderosa!
The cuts of steak are nicely displayed and clearly labeled. The gal at the counter was friendly and helpful. I’m looking forward to sampling other cuts of meat at Ponderosa, and as always, I’m proud to support a local business, which these guys certainly are.
Great quality and cut! Prime does make a difference. The staff were super friendly, and they gave us a sheet with all of their cuts w/ prices and let us know we can always call ahead with an order and they’ll have it ready when we walk in the door. If I’m ever in the mood for meat I’ll be giving them a call!
