See, what happened was...
…back in 1996 the Western Sizzlin Corporation acquired a successful buffet concept after 35 years of paving the way in the family steakhouse industry. The dream was to create a full-service restaurant buffet concept with a commitment to quality unlike any other.
In 1997, the corporation decided to merge their wildly successful buffet concept with the recognizable brand and superior service of Western Sizzlin as a franchisable option. Out of this marriage Western Sizzlin’s Wood Grill Buffet was born.
Later that year, a restaurateur from Southwest Virginia jumped at the opportunity and opened the first Western Sizzlin’s Wood Grill Buffet in Charlottesville, VA. The store has since grown to be the highest volume store in sales in the entire Western Sizzlin system!
Headquartered in Roanoke, Virginia, the award-winning Wood Grill Buffet is known for its fabulous home-style buffet including carving stations, homemade casseroles, garden fresh salads, country vegetables and straight-from-the-oven bread and desserts. You won’t find mediocre buffet food poured out of a can. Instead at Wood Grill Buffet, we’re in the kitchen as the sun comes up chopping vegetables and making our famous homemade chicken salad as we follow our authentic recipes.
