We had no idea the hidden gem that the River Shack Deli is ... food is awesome (must have sandwiches on their sourdough bread); service is good and they have a great outdoor area out back that is totally unexpected and a very cool oasis....More

We came here after a hard and hot bike ride. We were starving and got a sandwich and salad to split. Everything was HUGE! We got the turkey, bacon, avo sando and were very happy with it. $9 for a big sando is fair to...More

We were coming from a rafting trip and spotted this place. Mango Mambo is the best! I would go there just for this again.

Heading to Placerville and noticed the River Shack. A great sandwich (Hot Mamma) and a cold 16oz draft for under $13! I'm happy I stopped. Nice, casual, and friendly place.

Great sandwich choices and a great selection of beers, both on tap and in the bottle. A few different wines for those who don't like beer as well. If the weather is nice, head out back for an even more relaxed atmosphere.

They make a killer sandwich and most excellent potato salad. have a lot of micro brews. It is a very tiny place, that has been there forever. Mostly young folk, the river guides and such hang out there.
