In 1962 in Augusta, Georgia - Western Sizzlin 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 FlameKistŪ steak was born! This unique process locks in the flavor as the steak is seared to a savory perfection.

What is Flamekist?

Flamekist- flaym.kist (adj) 1) a method of grilling by using flames both on the top and the bottom of the meat to open the grain of the steak to allow the flavor to penetrate and then sear the edges to thus enhance the flavors and preserve the juices. 2) The art of perfect steaks. 3) The flavor you can only find at Western Sizzlin.

Western Sizzlin serves only the finest steaks. In the cooking process, our steaks are specially seasoned with Gold DustŪ, 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.
