    Friends of mine in the area recommend Spartaros downtown for the happy hour and appetizers.  They also highly recommend Drewski's Sandwiches, Leaven & Earth and Tres Hermanos Food Trucks.
     
    BB- if you get up Loomis way, look up the High Hand Cafe for their tri-tip sandwich and orange glazed salmon salad.  Just north of Sac in Roseville is the Denios farmers market, which isn't to be missed.  Across the street is what looks like a deserted Auctiontown building, but walk around and find the entrance to Jimboys Tacos.  don't get TM'd here, they'r eonly open on Fridays and Saturdays I believe.  But there are other Jimboy locations in the area.  Also, my friend tell me that the William Jessup University in Rocklin has just turned their campus cafeteria into a Bon Appetit ran operation.  Not sure if the public can go there, but worth checking out.  And if you're heading south, down 99 toward past Modesto, be sure to swing by the CupCake Lady's truck, she has a website and updates her routes.

    The cheese "skirt" on the cheeseburger at the Squeeze Inn is legendary and fabulous.  It definitely lived up to the hype, but once that part is gone, the rest of the burger was kind of average, in my opinion.  Still, I'd definitely go back for it!

    Ford's was way over priced even 10 years ago.

    Dear BB:  Will you be in the SF Bay Area as well as Sacramento?  Depending on the dates you'll be out here, I'd like to see if I can meet you all somewhere--either here or Sac.  Let me know!

    If it is still there, Nationwide Meats has some very good meats.  I ate there on a trip a few years ago and will try for them again this week on a trip.

    Thanks for all the great suggestions!  No doubt the OP appreciates them also.

    Squeeze Inn was at the very top of my list and one of the main reasons for us going to Sacramento in the first place.  Thank you for the kind offer of meeting us somewhere, either in Sacramento or in the Bay Area.  That would be great.  Right now, I'm still not sure where or when we will be, as I have a few other trips before then to plan.

    Among the burger establishments in town, probably the most well-known is "Squeeze Inn" which was mentioned in the television show, "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" on the Food Network (www.roadfood.com/Restaurant/Overview/5034/squeeze-inn , http://thesqueezeinn.com/?page_id=8).  They are known for their "cheese skirt" on their "Squeeze with cheese" and is an apparent favorite of Guy Fieri who hosts the above mentioned TV program.  It has become a local chain, boasting at least five locations around the Sacramento area.  Check out their website above for more info.  
     
    "Nationwide Freezer Meats", located on the southwest corner of "H" Street and 20th Street, serves up great burgers at a slightly above moderate prices (from $7 to about $17) (www.roadfood.com/Restaurant/Overview/4955/nationwide-meats , www.nationwidefreezermeats.com).  For me, while the burgers are very good, I love their fries - or should I say, potato planks.  A bundle of thick, crispy on the outside, moist and potatoey on the outside potato logs are wrapped in a paper napkin ready for you to devour.  
     
    Before I go any further, a special mention must go to "Jim-Denny's" (www.jim-dennys.com).  It is a tiny little place - located on 12th Street between "H" and "I" Streets in downtown Sacramento.  The ten-seat eatery has been serving up great burgers in the Capital City since 1934.  Nowadays, Jim-Denny's also serves up breakfast.  All of the standards plus the "Hubcap" - a gigantic pancake that measures about two and a half feet in diameter and about three-fourths of an inch thick.  The "Hubcap" alone will set you back about $10.  For two dollars more, you can get it with "spokes"  (six strips of bacon or six sausage links and topped with an egg).  
     
    Other recommended burger joints include Scott's Burger Shack at 4127 Franklin Blvd. in a not-so-nice area of Sacramento, Willie's Burgers which is the closest thing you will find to a Tommy's (of Los Angeles)-like chiliburger in the Capital City, and Burgers & Brew whose Davis location is very popular with the students at UC Davis.  
     
    There aren't a lot of places in Sac known for their hot dogs.  "The Wienery" (http://thewienerysacramento.com) located just north of Sacramento State University on 56th and "H" Streets is a long time favorite having served up wieners for over 30 years.  Personally, I wasn't too impressed with their food.
     
    However, for me, the "go to" place for a hot dog craving while in the Sacramento area is Wiener Works on Madison Ave. near Auburn Blvd (www.weinerworksmadison.com/)  This place is known for serving large portions of good food and is the home of the 14" Wonder Dog which may be topped however you wish.  They also have burgers and very good fries along with a large selection of beers.  I strongly suggest you go to their website and ogle at the food porn that lies therein.
     
    In the south part of Sacramento lies a large Vietnamese community known as "Little Saigon".  It is here where you can find a good bowl of pho or chomp on a banh mi for lunch.  You can consult a site like Yelp for recommendations.
     
    "Pancake Circus" at the corner of 21st Street and Broadway is a wonderful throwback to the '50's and a great place for (duh!) pancakes (www.pancakecircus.net).  They're open only for breakfast and lunch and have been serving up great food for God knows how long.  The portions are decent and so are the prices.
     
    "Spinner's" located inside the finically troubled Downtown Plaza shopping mall serves up HUGE cinnamon rolls and sticky buns that I find to be vastly superior to that of Cinnabon.  But what makes this place stand out for me is their "pizza rolls".  Instead of huge pinwheels of baked dough with sweet cinnamon butter and other goodies rolled up on the inside and luscious icing on top, you have huge pinwheels of baked dough with pizza sauce and pepperoni rolled on the inside and cheese on top.  They make only a limited number of these, so grab them while you can.  "Spinner's" has no website of its own, but can be found in Yelp.com.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to post all of those recommendations.  Looks like there is plenty of good information on there.  I know that Jim Denny's will be on my list, although there is no way I am eating a pancake that size!

    Re:Help - anything decent in Sacramento? 2013/01/27 03:09:26 (permalink)
    A couple of quick follow-ups re: "Help - anything decent in Sacramento?"
     
    Though I have never eaten there, "Frank Fat's" is arguably the most well-known Chinese restaurant in town. Established in 1939 on "L" Street between 8th and 9th Streets, "Frank Fat's" is said to have had more state government business done there than inside the State Capitol itself which is only two blocks away.  The menu offerings will look familiar to most American diners at a price that is a bit higher than your local Chinese take out place.  The surprising thing about "Frank Fat's" is that its most famous item is something that generally cannot be said to be particularly Chinese.  It is their banana cream pie.  Unlike most other places whose banana cream pie consists of a pudding or a custard-like filling with disc-shaped slices of banana mixed in, "Frank Fat's" banana cream pie has lengthwise slices of banana covering the first half-inch or so of the pie, then the filling on top of that, then a layer of whipped topping.  Quite possibly, the most "banana-licious" pie you'll ever have! www.fatsrestaurants.com
     
    It isn't quite the weather for it, but an orange freeze is a frozen treat that Sacramentans go for when the temperature reaches the triple digits.  The scoopable confection made up of juice, water and a little sugar used be served up by the Merlino family and one of my friends actually called it an "Orange Merlino".  Unfortunately, the Merlino burger place is no more and now, the locals get their summer treat from "The Original Hagen Orange Freeze" located on Walnut Ave. near El Camino Ave.  There are other flavors that you can get like strawberry and pineapple.  But, orange is what made this treat a favorite in the area.  Though it may not be super hot when you visit Sacramento, I would suggest that you order a burger (which is supposedly very good) and get an orange freeze for dessert and pretend that it is the middle of August.  Hagen's doesn't have its own website, but can be found in yelp.com or, of course, in a Google search.
     
    As a resident of Davis which is about 15 miles west of Sacramento along I-80, I would be remiss if I didn't mention some of my favorite places in my hometown.  If you are craving a burrito or other Mexican dishes, you can stop by either "Taqueria El Burrito" in the heart of downtown Davis or "Taqueria Guadalajara" with two locations in town and a third in Woodland which is about 10 miles north of here.  "The Guad", as it is also known, has long been a favorite of the students at UC Davis and, of course, the Davis community.  They are known for their "Mission-style" burritos (that is, huge burritos similar to the ones sold in the Mission District of San Francisco) which can easily fill you for the rest of the evening.  I especially enjoy their tacos which are relatively cheap at around $1.60 each and their huge torta, which is a Mexican sandwich, filled with your choice of meat, refried beans and some mayo with tomatoes, pickled jalapeños, onions and guacamole served on the side.  I stop by North Davis location about once a week to satisfy my Mexican food craving.  www.tgtacos.com
     
    One of the newest taquerias in town is "Taqueria El Burrito" which is a stone's throw from "Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream" shop and ironically across the street from "Chipotle" on "E" Street.  This is my other "go to" Mexican place whenever I am walking about downtown and I need a Mexican food fix.  Good food, good service and a spacious layout with four large screen televisions make this a great place to hangout.  I really enjoy their al pastor burrito though everything that I have ordered here I have thoroughly enjoyed.  "Taqueria El Burrito" has no website of its own, but they may be found in www.yelp.comdaviswiki.org and, of course, via a Google search.
     
    "Ali Baba", located across the street from UC Davis on 3rd Street between "A" Street and University Ave., serves great Middle Eastern cuisine along with burgers at reasonable prices.  My favorite is served on the weekends, which for them, begins on Friday.  It is an Iranian specialty called "Fesenjoon" which is a stew made of chicken, pomegranate and walnuts and served with rice.  It has an intriguing tangy sweet flavor that wonderful with the buttery basmati rice.  It is indeed quite a treat!  They are also known for their "Aggie Kabob" which is made to order, so you will have to wait 15 - 20 minutes before you receive your food.  Just a great place to relax and enjoy a great meal.  "Ali Baba" has no website of its own, but they may be found in yelp.com, daviswiki.org and, of course, via a Google search.
     
     
    For a great deli sandwich, my favorite place is a grocery store in North Davis.  The Nugget Market on the corner of Covell Blvd. and Pole Line Road serves up the best sandwiches I've had anywhere.  Their bake their own bread and make their own sauces and spread to make a sandwich that just beats the pants off of "Subway" which is in the same shopping center.  Be forewarned that their sandwiches are a bit pricey as they sell for $7 and up.  http://nuggetmarket.com/products/deli-sandwich-menu/
     
    There is no excuse for not having a great burger in Davis when the urge strikes.  Not only do we have an "In-N-Out" and "Habit Burger", there is also "Burgers and Brew" and "Tommy J's" to choose from.  Currently, "Burgers and Brew" is immensely popular with the University crowd, but "Tommy J's" also gets favorable reviews for their burgers.  http://burgersbrew.com/http://tommyjsburgers.com/
     
    Last but certainly not least is "The Hotdogger" which is probably the smallest eatery in town.  The store is owned by Cheryl and Ivan Franks (really!) and can serve you a plain and simple dog ($3.50) to the "Gut Bomb" ($4.75) which is a hot link covered with chili, cheese, hot salsa, peppers, onions and tomatoes.  http://www.thehotdogger.com
     
    If none of the aforementioned places is what you crave when visiting Davis, please check out http://daviswiki.org.  There you will find a list of most of the eating establishments here in town along with other info.  I hope you enjoy your visit here and maybe your college-aged son or daughter can take a tour of university which we are all proud of!

    I have visited only a few restaurants there. The one I liked most are firehouse restaurant and kitchen restaurant. Once I visited Limerick in Ireland, I like cornstore restaurant there. If you visit Limerick, do visit cornstore. Here is its website

    Thanks again for all the great suggestions.  The banana cream pie description really caught my eye.  Frank Fat's will be a must stop.  Didn't they win a James Beard award in the last few years?
