see, What Happened Was... 

 ...back in 1962 in Augusta, Georgia 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 would make them twice as good. He was right and the world famous FlameKist® steak was born! This unique process locks in the flavor as the steak is seared to a savory perfection.


 Western Sizzlin serves only the finest steaks. In the cooking process, our steaks are specially seasoned with Gold Dust®, a Western Sizzlin proprietary recipe. The combination of the Pascarellas original cooking technique and one-of-a-kind seasoning brought Nick and his wife Nora, an impeccable reputation for serving the most succulent tasting steak around. As one of our franchisees says, "We've got a special juicy flavor that only Western Sizzlin has!" But don't just take our word for it, ask anyone who has ever had one, and they'll tell you about it. 

 Nick's concept was just too good to keep to himself. In 1966 he responded to requests and began selling franchises nationally. If there isn't one near you, check out our franchise information link where you can find out about becoming the next proud owner of a Western Sizzlin restaurant.
