The Sizzler Family Steak House Story


JANUARY 27, 1958

With fifty dollars in the cash register, Del and Helen Johnson opened “Sizzler Family Steak House” in Culver City, California.

Dwight D. Eisenhower was in his second term as the 34th President of the United States. A 14-year-old Bobby Fischer took the United States Chess Championship. “Gigi” won the Academy Award for Best Picture. The American girl group The Shirelles began.

And finally, everyone could enjoy a great steak dinner at an affordable price.
