WesterN SizzliN Steak & More Restaurant was started in Augusta, Ga., in 1962 when company founder, Nick Pascarella, discovered a unique way of grilling steaks. If searing the bottom of the steak made it juicy, he reasoned that adding flames to the top with the thought that it would make them even better. In addition to steaks, customers have a variety of other entrees like chicken, seafood, country vegetables and hot fresh baked breads and desserts. WesterN SizzliN is a family restaurant that serves a buffet as well. There are 150 WesterN SizzliN Steak restaurants nearly 25 states. One of these branches is located in Fort Smith, Ark. Western SizzliN employs nearly 500 people.
