“Really a great choice for this area”

The food was above average for a Sizzler, the salad bar was excellent. The restaurant was clean and the salad bar was keep clean and well stocked. Ate there while going to and from Phoenix on this trip.

“The Value of consistancy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

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 has been consistant; you know what to expect and are not disappointed. The food is tasty and the service is good. I have noticed, however, the steaks, which are arguably the best in town, seem too be shrinking in size.

“Great staff, so-so steak, small buffet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

We don'thave Sizzlers near us in Ohio so I thought we would try it. I expected a "Ponderosa" style steak and buffet...swing and a miss. Buffet is very small, but food is ok. The steak was decent but a little tough. Keep looking if you want a good steak.

The food is fantastic! The steaks are out of this world! The buffet is good as well. The people are friendly and the place looks really clean.

“Satisfied”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

Food was fresh, buffet was clean and full, employees were a little slow and casual (not super professional) but in no way rude. The prices at sizzler are too high for the quality- but there's ways to find coupons online!

Best for families, couples, not a romantic date... And best time to go is lunch because it picks up for dinner and service isn't as quick.
