  • 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.

    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!
    Drew Z., Beaverton
    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.
    Brian I., Beaverton
    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!!
    Marc W., Portland
    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.

    Best meat available, with excellent customer service (they would even cut a steak exactly how thick I wanted it)!

    To Ponderosa Provisions Inc. I give four stars for quality and four stars for the fact that there are not too many small meat companies like this around anymore. Among the meat offerings at Ponderosa Provisions Inc. are beef , buffalo, pork, chicken, and sausages. The real star here seems to be the custom cut prime beef steaks. The beef steaks are cut so well at Ponderosa Provisions Inc. that they even look delicious raw. This establishment is known for quality. Ponderosa Provisions Inc. also sells barbecue rubs, sauces, wood pellets, and wood chips in its retail section. The guy at the meat counter was friendly, laid back, and helpful. Hope we’ll always have places like Ponderosa Provisions Inc. around for quality meats and personal service.

    AAAA++++ !!! Can I just say GRASS FED Beef, which is all I am allowed to buy these days, they have a bunch of it, from grass fed burger to steaks of all kinds. They carry both Choice and Prime. They also carry Pork, yes Carlton Farms Pork, Poultry, Lamb, Buffalo, Veal and just about anything else you can think of. I have purchased custom cuts of Prime Rib here previously, but I did not realize they had so much to offer and it is vacuum packed for easy freezing and will last a lot longer packaged that way. The are super helpful and knowledgeable, nice to boot!
    Cheryl D., Portland
    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!
    Tiffany M., Hillsboro
    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.
