Ponderosa and the power of public comment

So I had been wanting to post about my contention that we used to have a Ponderosa in York County. Except I couldn’t remember where.

Totally unrelated, enter this discussion on The Exchange, and now I know that Ponderosa used to be next to where Wonderful Garden is, off of South Queen Street.

Have you all noticed that my “Used to be” posts all seem to deal with food? And shopping? I’m scared about how that reflects on me.

About Joan

My name is Joan and I'm a lifelong Yorker. Throughout high school and college, I swore I was getting out of here as soon as possible. Now, a few years later, I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be. I love my town, and I hear every day from readers who love their towns, too. So please, connect with me and let's share what makes life in York County great. I'm here to help you enjoy this place as much as I do!

    I’m finding this years after the post (lol) but Ponderosa used to be out on Queen Street where the rebuilt McD’s is. Across the street from the Taco Bell/Pizza Hut. Is that specific enough?

    There was 2 locations in York one out on RT 30 and another out on queen street. If any past employees read this please contact me want to maybe get together and catch up on old times. All PA Poderosa’s closed by the end of 2005. SO sad Good place!
