This is fast food but I would be remiss if I left out Jimboy's. It's a Sacramento institution. I like their ground beef el gordo tacos and their steak quesadillas. http://jimboystacos.com/

It's pizza, they sell it by the slice and they are open late. You are not going here for the ambiance if you go late at night there might be a line full of drunk people who also want pizza. The pestoroni pizza is the bomb. Bring cash (it's cash only).

If you like to drink but also crave something different, this bar has a huge tank with real mermaids and mermen swimming around. This place can get crowded but it has mermaids so it's worth it, right? http://divebarsacramento.com/

So, you like to drink? We don't judge, there are quite a few establishments in old town where you can can get your drink on. You can drink and dine on a boat at the Delta Bar and Grill, score cheap happy hour drinks and wings at Fanny Ann's Saloon, play pool, drink guiness and gnosh on corned beef at O'Malley's Pub or if wine is your thing check out new addition District (they also serve coffee and tea). Be aware parking is a challenge in Old Town.
