We recently ate here and the food was delicious... we had the jambalaya and shrimp tacos. Great food, good prices, and nice presentation. They have tv's so you can catch the game if you need to. They also have outdoor/sidewalk seating. Only three blocks from Sutter's Fort State Historical Park.

Small local restaurant with good food... little lady runs the place and we have found the food to be good. We get the Tom Ka Gai (coconut chicken soup) and brown rice. Their mango sticky rice is not all that... Of course, we are spoiled from or trip to Thailand!

Fun place to grab some delicious food and then walk around Old Town Sacramento. Very festive environment and we have never been disappointed with their crab pots. All of them are good! Be sure and ask them what they recommend as certain items are in season and extra fresh.

Great Chinese food at a great price. Great for large groups. They give you a lot of food! If you like spicy food, try their fried salty fish (with garlic and sliced peppers) with vegetable fried rice.

I think they were voted the best burger chain. Well, we are not surprised. We don't eat their burgers because we generally try to avoid red meat, but what we do order is delicious... Albacore Tuna Filet. Highly recommended and it is only a short distance away!

People have begun to discover this little gem on Broadway. We always get the combo platter. If you like "ethnic" food like Indian curry, give this a try. This is a great place to grab a bite to eat before heading to the iconic Tower Theater for a indie film.

We have been here a few times with friends and everyone always loves what they have ordered. The steaks are delicious and they have good prices! There is also a lot of great choices for non-steak eaters too... we suggest their BBQ chicken. Oh, and they always start you off with bread and cinnamon butter... yummy! This is a popular place so get here early! Or, we haven't done this, but you can try Call Ahead Seating*. "Just make a quick call to your local Texas Roadhouse and the hostess will put you on the waiting list just like if you walked through the front door." (916) 681-0640

Haven't visited since Covid19 outbreak. - We think this Golden Corral is something special. We know the owners and they do a great job of serving delicious food. Their seafood options are delicious. They are usually grilling fish or shrimp and it is always tasty. They also keep the place clean. We have been there after closing and they scrub the place from top to bottom. We cannot dine here too often because we always end up eating way more than we should!

We love this restaurant. It is always ranked in the top three for "Best of Sacramento" in Mexican food. Great place to dine and have a margarita. Warning, they do cook with lard, but there are vegetarian options available. They are authentic and delicious!

This is a good spot for sushi rolls. The buffet has a large selection of items and we found a few things that we liked... we took the shrimp on a stick and mixed it with the noodles and it was delicious. You cannot go wrong with any of the rolls... simply place your all-you-can-eat order with a waitress. Where else can you fill up on sushi for $16 per person?

You cannot go wrong with Uncle Vito's pizza. This is a great place to get your pizza fix. They do pizza right. Also, they have tv's all over and air baseball, basketball, and football games. They also sell by the slice so everyone can get what they want.

Fresh sushi, good sized portions, and great service. The "Bento Box" and the "Dinner Plate" are great bargains. Great little hangout that locals frequent. No outdoor seating but take-out is quick and convenient.

Arts & Culture
We have been to a few events and exhibits here. They host jazz concerts, art exhibits, and special events. This is a really nice facility. Parking can be a hassle though. We have found it worthwhile parking on Front St and walking across the bridge.

We saw Cirque du Soleil's "Toruk" here and the set design and show was fabulous. We also saw the Sacramento Kings basketball team here too. If you get the chance, this is a modern stadium and comes complete with all the amenities. We suggest parking at Consumnes River College (4 miles away) and take the light rail if you want to avoid traffic and leave the driving to someone else.

Sightseeing
A visit to Sacramento is not complete without a trip to "Old Town Sacramento". This was the gold rush jumping off point for the railroad and steamers from nearby San Francisco. And no visit to Old Town Sacramento is complete without a visit to this place. Wander around... you will be amazed at all the costumes, gifts, and toys they have. It will make you want to host a costume party just so you can dress up!!!
