Posted: Thursday, December 8, 2011 4:34 pm | Updated: 9:04 am, Mon Dec 12, 2011.

When Pat Vezertzis Jr. decided to retire from the restaurant business, it opened the door for a former employee to bring Western Sizzlin back to Fort Payne.

Miles Smith, who owns Western Sizzlin in Scottsboro plans to open a franchise after remodeling work is done on the Golden Rule building. Smith was hired by Vezertzis to wash dishes at Western Sizzlin when he was 15 years old. Over the years, the restaurant business got into his blood.

    When and why did Golden Rule close? My wife and I were going to eat there last Sunday and noticed it was closed. No notice or anything. Maybe I missed it on the news. We do like Western Sizzlin so maybe that's not so bad.
