Food was cold, a lot of the items tasted old and had been on the steam table to long. Staff was not friendly. Certainly not somewhere I will go again.

this western sizzlin would be perfect for one of the food network shows that renovates old, tired and dated restaurants...décor is dingy and dirty...the floor felt like it was wet and greasy...buffet was not up to any standard for a sunday buffet...a lot of waitresses standing around chit chatting about tattoos and swimming pools...conversations that should be outside the earshot...

We love patronizing the Western Sizzlin. Always a wonderful meal. Lots to choose from on the menu or the buffet. Waitress was extremely nice and concerned about our circumstances concerning the Flood of 2016. Look forward to going back the next time we are in town.

I place the problems with tonight's review squarely on the management of this location. Less than 20 miles to the west, there was torrential rains and widespread destruction resulting in loss of power and entire towns being shut down and hundreds displaced. The staffing was totally inadequate for the situation faced by a completely overwhelmed staff. Wait time to get... More

My wife and I ate here for our overnight stop in Virginia. The buffet was clean and had lots of selection. Fried chicken, pizza, lasagna, mashed taters, mac& cheese, and pulled pork to name a few. The salad bar that goes with it is very fresh as well. Staff was attentive and would take plate quickly when you were finished.... More

Last time we visited this restaurant, we were not impressed with the food at all. One member in our party ate off the food bar and the food was mediocre at best. The macaroni salad was horrible, tasted like it had been made with cool whip. Restaurant is kinda dirty inside as well. Would love to see a better restaurant... More

We were on our way back home and needed a quick bite so we could get back on the road. The salad bar was nicely stocked with the usual items. The hot buffet was nice too. The cooked carrots were sweet and tasty. Fried chicken was good. Dessert bar was ok too. Banana pudding very good. Rolls were good too.... More

We were skeptical after reading some reviews but decided to try it anyway. The buffet was pretty good. The ham wasn't anywhere near warm so I didn't eat it as it obviously wasn't at the proper temp. I actually really liked the pizza when it was fresh. It's good enough that I would just eat it if they kept the... More
