Interesting interior with historic features, and good basic food - burgers, sandwiches, that kind of thing. Reasonably priced. Service a bit erratic but the whole experience was good. Wouldn't say it had a lot of atmosphere particularly, but not horribly touristy either.

Fat City has been in Old Town for quite some time, and there's a reason why - it delivers tasty food in a beautiful old building at reasonable prices. I had the BLT with avocado, which was excellent. I had a choice of fries or...More

Fat City has proudly served Sacramento for 40 years. While you will find some Asian items on the menu, such as a popular Chinese Chicken Salad and a simple chicken and vegetable stir fry, the cuisine is grounded in traditional American dishes with a few adventurous forays into international cuisine.
