The food here is pretty good. I had their steak sandwich and I liked it. But two problems: they do not even have regular mustard (!) - only honey mustard, and they won't accept Discover or Amex cards. There really is no reason not to take Discover; their discount rates (what it costs a merchant to take a credit card)... More

We just happened upon it while trying to find a parking spot in the area. We changed our lunch plans to try out this restaurant. The salad had a lot of dressing so I would ask for it on the side. We shared a plat of urban fries. They were unbelievably good. The basic chicken sandwich didn't end up as... More

Been coming here for years. Love this place! The urban fries...... omg they are to die for. No matter what I order, I always have to get side of them. Salads are great, I usually opt for the build your own salad option. Never have had a bad experience here. Service is good, great for both dine in and take... More

Located near the railroad track running through downtown Sacramento. I have eaten in and taken out several times. Staff is friendly and efficient. A long line is quick to move (assembly line). Food orders are not made until ordered. Food is seasoned, dressed, and incredibly fresh. Salads are usually properly dressed and hold well to go. Sometimes overdressed and difficult... More

My husband and I stayed in Sacramento a few weeks ago. I had read about this restaurant, so we gave it a try. Really glad we did. Think "old style carving stations" with great salads and soups. Fun, friendly staff and plenty of room for indoor and outdoor seating. Portion size very nice. Can easily split sandwich and salad. Loved... More

You stand in line to order and pay. They give you a number and deliver the food to your table. It was fast, but mine came 10 minutes after everyone else. I had the pulled pork sandwich. It was great especially after I took out some of the cabbage. Even with the wait, I would give it the thumbs up.

Self serve with plenty of choices. Steak salad was fresh and amazing. They used Tri-tip which is the best! Glass of wine, my dinner was complete.
