Dare I ask...SIZZLER...has anyone tried this chain recently?

I spent a lot of time in Puerto Rico and it seems that Sizzler is extremely popular there. I checked out their website and there's even an online "restaurant tour"...shocker, it looked pretty nice. The price is so low, I'm tempted to at least give it a try for lunch. So, has anyone been there recently?

  1. Salad bar.
    There are baked potatoes, pasta and sauce and fried chicken wings as well as soup and refried beans, rice, tortillas and carnitas on the hot food portion of the bar.
    Choose wisely.

    1. Don't waste your money.

      1. It so depends on which one you go to! I've had lunch at one and thoroughly enjoyed the salad bar, finding the ingredients fresh and some of the offerings such as taco meat & corn tortillas exceptional. That said at another location we weren't very hungry at dinner time and thought the salad bar would be a good choice....NOT. The lettuce was wilted and watery, the appetizers just looked cold, old, and greasy. We should have gone to an In 'n Out!

        1. I haven't eaten at one in yrs. That is one thing living between 2 malls and RT 1 you are in a Chain heaven? LOL You see one come in and then go right back out again. Old Sizzler now a Panera Old Wendy's now Pollo Tropical. When I did eat there wasn't bad for the price, but as my hubby always say's "you get what you paid for" Hmmm

          1. For some reason I loved SIzzler as a kid but now I haven't eaten there in many years. I don't think I ever once ordered off the menu, always the salad bar. If it's a salad bar style buffet you're looking for I highly recommend Souplantation or Soupersalad over Sizzler. Same idea Salad, soup, baked potato bar, but way more stuff and higher quality.
