This is a fabulous place to eat. SO fabulous in fact that it is usually very crowded. Sundays are impossible. The Buffet bar has dozens of items and all of them are really good. Think Golden Corral only with flavor. Salad bar is unequaled. Rolls are to die for. Menu items are excellent as well. Very clean and excellent service.... More

OK, seriously, the buffet was excellent. Really. We have etean at another Western Sizzlen and it was the most disgusting food we have ever had. That was in Burnsville, NC. THIS place is good! It was packed at lunch but everything was quick. The buffet offers you a wide variety to choose from and most of it was great. The... More

Had a late lunch here on a Sunday afternoon. OMG - what a fantastic buffet. The place was packed, but we got a table for two after a very short wait. We could've ordered steaks and such off the menu, but decided on the buffet which turned out to be outstanding! Lots and lots of different selections, from salad to... More

My Brother in law are buffet junkies and we stumbled upon the Western Sizzlin by accident. I am so glad we did. They had 4 buffet bars, plus the bakery and desserts. They were all kept full and fresh and were all delicious. They had loads of meats and vegetables, corn dogs, wings, shrimp, fish....you name it. It was crowded... More

I have been there more than 7 times and every time I end up with some different experience. On the good side: They always have vegetables, fruits, and proteins. Most of meat is fried or cooked in a sauce with much of chicken and some pork. They seems to reserve the beef for their individual menu. Some fried fish too.... More
