Sizzler proves that in the 1950’s, a little money went a long way to making the American dream happen. Opened by Del and Helen Johnson in Culver County with a lot of hope and a few bucks, Sizzler Family Steak House has thrived on America’s love for good food at affordable prices. Over the years Americans have loved their prime choice meats, health conscious choices (18 items meet the exceptional standards of Healthy Dining Options) and pricing so much that Sizzler locations are all over the west coast and even in Kissimmee, Florida and Forest City, New York! All of Sizzler’s steaks are USDA Choice steaks and hand-cut so that Sizzler’s diners get the best steak possible. Dining out is an experience, and if it’s one worth having, Sizzler believes that it should involve the best choice in meats! The same can be said for their seafood and ribs! Sizzler also offers juicy burgers, meals just for kids, and a selection of flavorful sides. If quality is important and at a good price, go to Sizzler!

Once the home of Wyatt Earp's gambling hall and saloon, Georges on Fifth also holds the distinction of being the most photographed building in the Gaslamp Quarter. Today, the venue casts off the sounds of tinny pianos for the aromas of Zagat-rated dishes, each painstakingly crafted by executive chef Jose Kelley. The flavors of certified Angus beef, Snake River Farms Kobe beef, and USDA Prime cuts heighten beneath port-wine and Jack Daniel's demi-glaces, and fresh, flaky seafood in the form of scallops, halibut, and salmon don equally delicate notes from herb-infused oils. With Chef Kelley's wine list made up of more than 50 West Coast and international varietals, diners can find a pleasing accompaniment to any dish.
