I had the beef tips which were wonderfully flavored. Vegetables steamed and not over cooked. The thing about the visit that stands out in my mind though were the employees. These were all fairly young people. Didn't appear much older than high-school age and this was a busy Friday night. They worked together so very efficiently. All moving quickly through... More

Western Suzzlin is always a good place to eat. We go there quite often. They have good food and good prices and great service. We will be going again.

There are a lot of things I love about Western Sizzlin', but this facility makes me queasy to eat there. As you walk in, the haze of grease fills the air, and the seats, condiments, floor and tables all have a film of "ick" all over it. The lights and windows and have not been cleaned in quite some time,... More

Western had a large variety of foods. Taste is good. However the cuts of meat are exact ally what you wold expect. Thin processed meats designed form mid level dining.

Wasn't bad, just your average steak house buffet. The people were friendly but nothing spectacular. A bit pricey considering some of the food was bland and the tables were somewhat dirty.

Had a family reunion luncheon at WS. Why this place receives a four rating is because of facility size and ability to provide a large number food choices for many people. Our server was good and stayed up with drinks and additional needs of family members. WS is not my regular choice when dining out, but if you are looking... More

What I love about Western Sizzlin is the variety they have to offer. You can have the all you can eat buffet which includes multiple entrees and vegetables, a salad bar, soups, bread and potato bar and a huge variety of desserts, fruit and ice cream. You can just have the potato bar which includes the bread and dessert bar.... More

This is like Golden Corral or Old Country Buffet back home. The waitress was nice enough but kept telling us how it's a secret how cheap it is to like in Arkansas. Kind of annoying. The food wasn't that great.
