I don’t think we have a Sizzler back home. If we do I’ve never been there before, so a new eatery experience for me. It was a Saturday night and the night before mother’s day here in Australia, so myself, Lee, his sister (Abbie) and her partner (Harley) took, took Lees mum (Angie) out for dinner, to celebrate said mother’s day.
Sizzler is a chain of restaurants; this particular branch was in Ipswich and even though it was stupidly busy there was still ample parking.
Both Lee and I had the salad bar. It sounds a little dull, but when you see the salad bar spread its impressive, tons, I mean tons of different mixes of salads and pasta salads, tons of tasty little extras such as crispy potato skins, salad garnishes and a spread of all the things to make the most amazing tacos. Not forgetting the massive array of fresh fruits and desserts available. There were bread and butter pudding, apple crumble, chocolate mousse and ice-cream with an array of toppings. The best part is that you can go up as much as you like for the savoury and desserts. The food way obviously mass produced, but it did taste good also.
Value for Money
For our meals, it was $25.95 each. That’s about £15 pounds, about the same at home for a similar restaurant. It could become a little pricey though as some of the meals range up to $40 but I don’t think you need a large meal with the salad bar, it would be a waste of money in my eyes.
The place was heaving; we waited in the line for a good fifteen minutes before we were seated. But even though they were busy, they were turning the tables over quite quickly, and I would say within an hour or so, the crowds had died down, and it was quite empty. The staff was friendly enough but to be honest, we didn’t interact with them much as we just served ourselves.
