Plunder the Boardwalk
Dollar per pound, the Boardwalk
Buffet and Grill is the best deal this
side of Geppetto's all-you-can-eat
pizza night. The prodigal child of a
Ponderosa and smorgasbord,
Boardwalk's buffet will conquer in-
satiable gourmands and leave dain-
flavored gravies boldly accent each
other, and the macaroni and cheese is
just like mom used to make (if she
worked in an airport cafeteria).
Therestaurant was once a genuine
Ponderosaandstill looks it.Dark green
carpeting cleverly hides stains over-
eager patrons may cause. The aisles
are wide, ventilation is good, and ev-
ery table has a clear view of the buffet
so you can keep an eye out for fresh
loads of food. The giant, steaming, U-
shaped buffet is an ergonomic de-
light. Amateurs will quickly master it
and go on to explore the intricacies of
the sundae bar. N.B.: be careful not to
stare too closely at the sneeze guards.
Service is fast. Skillful waiters/
waitresses scurry around picking up
plates and asking if the food is good
(like that matters). Hungry heifers
may want to ask for several extra
plates at a time. Don't be afraid of
telling your waitperson that the buffet
is out of an item. Do be afraid of
asking them how the whitefish is

tier types trembling with awe/gas. So
if quantity means more to you than
quality, get there.
Neophytes may scoff or guffaw,
but the Boardwalk will convince. If
the spaghetti doesn't strike a chord,
try the Swedish meatballs, jello salad,
stuffing, meatloaf, creamed corn, etc.
The buffet is diverse enough to make
a true believer out of even the most
finicky. Fortes include the chicken
wings (fried/barbecued), french fries,
and taco bar. "Brown" and "yellow"
