At the very end of 2018, we told you that Western Sizzlin had plans to close their restaurant in Benton. But it wasn’t to go out of business entirely. It was to remodel, rebrand, and come back with the biggest buffet Benton has seen. I got to come by the work-in-progress on Thursday afternoon to get some video.
Owner Elgin Hamner talked about going to get training at the North Carolina restaurant. He said they take special care to prepare the vegetables differently, so they’re healthy and taste wonderful. If you watch the video below, you’ll also learn about all the meat and seafood they will have to offer… and the salad bar, and the chocolate fountain.
Hamner said they have a goal to open in April. This video is just a sneak peek – there is a lot of work still left to accomplish. However, they are currently hiring. Come by the restaurant at 1916 Congo Road in Benton (behind Burger King), daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
