This restaurant is now closed.

I used to live the salad bar. Lots of items to choose from. Meats just ok, I liked the chicken with pineapple thing when I was a kid. Another El Cajon restaurant closed.

Went there for dinner and although the steaks had pretty good flavor, non of our three meals were cooked as ordered. I was disappointed with the salad bar and so long as you want just ice cream for dessert, then you're good to go. I've definitely had better meals.

It was our first time at a Sizzler and you had to pre-order your meal and go by pictures on the wall. Had I known the salad bar was so huge, with such a variety of foods, I would have just ordered that. The food was plentiful but not the best I've had from steakhouse type restaurants. I thought it...

We had a good experience at this Sizzler, the food is good and the service is adequate, most of it is buffet style. I must admit my main course of Hibachi Chicken left a lot to be desired, it was a very small portion and the chicken was dry. The soup and salad bar was well stocked and clean.

This Sizzler is conveniently located across from the Westfield Shopping Mall in El Cajon. It is a nice alternative to the mall food court. We often go here when I don’t feel like cooking dinner and we want a good steak or seafood dinner. The atmosphere is very nice and the salad/soup/dessert buffet is wonderful. Service is also excellent.

If you used to like Sizzler back in the day and it fizzled out on you....Well, try this one! I have not cared for the Sizzler Brand for awhile but this Sizzle is everything a Great Sizzler used to be! Great Prepared Food, Great Staff, Clean, Buffet stocked regularly, and still fair prices! I know that there is not many... More

You have a great selction of food here, a buffet or by the order, good salad bar. District Manager Jeanene is terrifc and Oralia is the best at service. Food is always good no matter what I get. Happy for Oralia for being moved to another location as manager

Sizzler is a low cost steak house where you stand in line as you enter and order from a limited menu of items taking a number back to your table. The food is very good. Recommended.
