A total remodel of the Ponderosa building on Seneca Turnpike in New Hartford is underway and the results are going to be amazing. A construction crew is hard at work right now making the conversion from the old western-themed buffet into 'America's Diner.'

The former Ponderosa business had been closed for several years and when it closed the second time, it would stay closed. The property was then taken over by Denny's and that is what it will be. Below are some photos of what the remodel is looking like so far and what it will end up looking like.
