Food was awesome for the price. I enjoyed all the staff. Buffet at a reasonable price. My friend got the filet and enjoyed it.

We arrived in late so went out for quick dinner. Steak was done as we requested. Pretty good for eating after 9 pm.

People were friendly and the service was very good, considering it was a buffet. We would recommend it.

Location is good, right by the interstate. The food bar was not.The broccoli soup was thicker than glue and inedible. Instant mashed potatoes, gravy was lumpy and way too thick. Vegetables were overcooked and rolls were stale. Most items looked like they had been sitting there quite a while and needed to be at least stirred, but better yet changed... More

We went here because it was late and close by our motel. The food on the buffet was just so-so. The shrimp was more breading than shrimp. The baked chicken was dry and flavorless, the baked fish had been under the heat lamp a long time and was rubbery, the fried okra had big chunks of woody inefibke okra. BUT... More

I ordered a $12.00 sirloin. My steak came out first. It was served on a sizzling platter. When the waitress brought my father's out a few minutes later... More

I live in the Van Buren area, but I drive to the Ft. Smith on Rogers Avenue location when I want Western Sizzlin' food. There is no comparison to the food quality between the two restaurants. The hot food bar food choices at the Van Buren location are very poor. Most of the food on the hot food bar tastes... More

I dined at Western Sizzlin while on an extended stay in the Van Buren area. I had the New York strip steak, fries and salad bar. The steak was actually pretty decent (although a little too much gristle), fries Ok, and the salad bar was reasonably stocked, and fresh. The whole meal was $16 which was very reasonable. The big...

We were tired and this was near our hotel, so we didn't look further. Should have. We were unaccustomed to this chain, and nobody came to our rescue to help us decipher what we were to do regarding ordering, etc. We ended up choosing the food bar which looked better than it turned out to be. The fried seafood seemed... More
