This place wasn't very good but we have been regulars now for the past 5 years. Their salad bar selection is really good and the food great. Somewhat pricey but worth the splurge every once in a while.

I rarely eat here. Food is good. Service really good. Pricing is horrible. Pricing does not reflect the quality of the restaurant. It's like they want to be upscale.... But how upscale can a place be when you order off the wall at the register and half of the meal is a communal buffet? For me, it's just not worth... More

My son and I came here after one of his baseball games. They gave us salad bars plates while we waited for our meals. Our meals came and we were already full from the salad bar. We asked for to-go containers and the waitress advised that they only had foil. She brought us little 8x8 foil squares and a little... More

A Sizzler is a Sizzler is a Sizzler, but this Sizzler is a sizzler. The restaurant is well maintained, clean, and pleasant. The staff behind the counter and the table-service staff are always attentive, courteous, and friendly. The food menu at this Sizzler is the same as served in every Sizzler I have eaten in which numbers more than a... More

Items in salad bar were fresh! Staff was nice! I originally had wanted to get a meal to go but they were not set up to do that so I decided to eat in the restaurant. My waitress was very nice and she was busy!

The owner is always supervising the quality of the food and service. The environment is familiar very clean, sometimes the owner is the one who cooks special food. They have one small room where meeting are held and no one disturbs the group.

We have eaten here several times and have found the food and service to be hit and miss. The salad bar buffet is usually fresh with a fair amount of selections. The wings are good but you need to catch them when the waiters bring out a new batch. On our last visit I had the Senior Fish and Chips... More

In small towns there is a great deal of variablity in quality and service of local businesses including restaurants. El Centro is still a small town in this regard. A dinning experience may be exceptional once or for a period of time but disappointment follows when managers or employees change. For at least a decade, The Sizzler in El Centro... More
