Lots of meat to fill your cravings for a good hearty sandwich. We ordered turkey and pastrami sandwiches, both sandwiches were delicious with plentiful fillings of meat - very good. We also ordered the appetizer of fish tacos and it came 2 small tacos for $1 -. A bit steep for two small tacos though.

We arrived at 1 p.m. for a quick lunch before a concert. We were told it would be a 10 wait despite many empty tables in view. After a 20-minute wait we were called to the reception desk. We were then seated at a table that had been empty the entire time. It was another long wait before the bartender,... More

Our server was willing to please...two brimming to the top martini's which spilled all over the table, it was funny! Our server split the Caesar salad with plenty of chicken which was lovely, next was the Angle Hair Pasta dish...not recommended. Conflicting seasonings in a sauce that was so thick, the pasta all stuck together. In addition the shrimp was... More

Great Old Town Sac location for dinner. We were going to the Polar Express with the family. There were 11 of us. We made reservations and were seated right away. Service was good and the food was great. With 5 little girls the meal came in good time.

The restaurant looked inviting and wasn't yet crowded for lunch, so we gave it a try. The service was excellent-never had to ask for a thing. The food was well prepared and the portions large. My burger and fries were delicious. We will be back.

Thanks to chef JT Ritzman, we enjoyed a delicious steak chowder and the menu special -- organic salmon -- entire dish was THE BEST we have ever tasted! JT came to our table and was charming and competent. He then offered us to taste test a new chutney, which will be a great hit. Valerie, the GM and Luke, our... More

I had my sister and brother-in-law visiting from Chicago. I wanted to show them Old Town Sacramento. We ate at Fat City, which has great decor and atmosphere. I ordered the Cubano sandwich which was very good. It was accompanied with French fries (not on my diet) but they were some of the best I have had. Crisp on the... More
