“Only buffet in town that isn't Chinese food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2012

About as average as a Banquet TV dinner. Nothing impressive here. The steaks aren't bad though.

“Great Steak on the Buffet!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2011

This Western Sizzlin is in a new building right off I-40 in Elk City. It is spacious and clean with comfortable seating. When we arrived at this restaurant (for those not familiar with Western Sizzlin, it's a chain of all you can eat buffet restaurants but they are also steakhouses where you can order a custom steak and baked potato dinner). On this visit we opted for the buffet instead of the steak special and were very glad we did because they had excellent medium rare steaks on the hot buffet line. They had a pretty good green salad bar with many toppings. There was another "salad" bar with various cold salads (pea salad, potato salad, etc). On the hot bars they had fried chicken, steak, turkey and dressing, pot roast, ham, carved roast, fried potatoes, mashed potatoes and gravy, mac and cheese, green beans, spinach, broccoli and cheese, sweet potatoes, hot rolls, chicken noodle soup, pepperoni pizza, and more. Lots of desserts on the dessert bar and of course an ice cream machine. Things were well stocked and the place was nice and clean. We were there at 6pm on a Sunday evening. Our server was friendly, courteous, and attentive. She did a great job refilling our drinks, keeping us stocked with clean buffet plates, and taking away dirty plates. The only strange thing is the bathroom location...the door to the bathrooms is in the middle of a mirrored wall and there is no sign indicating "bathrooms". Our family of four ate for less than $40! Overall we really enjoyed our visit to Elk City's Western Sizzlin and will definitely return when we travel that way again.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2010

Stopped here on a Sunday morning just before noon. Church crowd began to come in while we were there. Food was great. Service was great. Atmostphere was great. Seems everyone knew everyone and they enjoyed their meals. This is an excellent Western Sizzlin. Wish we had more in our home state but there are only about 3 left in the entire state. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Don't bother”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2009

The salad bar was room temperature, and we know that it should be cold. The breads were all HARD. The heat lamps were far too close to them, and they dried out. Yuck! The place was deserted at 6pm, so I should have known from the beginning. The cashier thought it was appropriate to yell at the cook in front of us before taking our order, and the wait staff left much to be desired. Our dirty plates sat on the table the entire time we were there. Gross. I would keep driving and find somewhere else.
