I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Sizzler closes in Alhambra

Sizzler on Palm and Commonwealth avenues in Alhambra closed after losing its lease, according to an employee at the chain restaurant's Los Feliz location. The property broker would not comment on the details, or what will replace Sizzler.

A sign on the Alhambra branch's door reads: "Alhambra community, thank you for the great memories! It has been our pleasure serving you." 

Some residents were upset by the closing, commenting on our Facebook photo of the now empty "Sizzler" sign"A lot of these old style places have a hard time staying open. Saying goodbye like that was a classy way to say thanks," Joe Walker wrote. 

Others said that they saw it coming. "Finally," Anthony Sanchez wrote.

  1. Sizzler provided AYCE salad bar with affordable price….. RIP!! I miss you!

  2. I wouldn’t mind a Korean BBQ. That one that replaced the Sizzler’s on Las Tunas is delicious (albeit expensive!)

  3. It’s a shame too because overall, Sizzler had a more diverse menu. And while most people think Souplantation is healthy because they serve “salads”, most of their produce is actually laden with pesticides.

  4. So sad. When Souplantation was too crowded, we would go dine at Sizzler. Or sometimes when i craved steak, I would go. First Temple City one closes, now Alhambra? Sucks!

  5. Sad. So Sad. It was a perfect location in Costco Plaza.

  6. I am really surprised it was able to stay open as long as it did. It’s funny and ironic that the business that did the most damage to them is right next door – The Soup Plantation.

    Sizzler will always have a special place in my heart for it was in the early 1980s that they helped make the “salad bar” popular. Sizzler used to be THE place to go to for lunch even well into the 1990s.

    As time went on, the competition got tougher and the quality of the product from Sizzler got worse. This kind of thing happens all the time. Sizzler never seemed to change when their winning formula was bested by others.

  7. Too bad, that used to be my dad’s favorite place to eat, also my neighbor’s.

Do you have a question you would like to ask Alhambra candidates?
