Are there any good places to eat in Sacramento [moved from SF]
I am in Sacramento for the weekend and I am looking for a few good places to eat that I can only find in Sacramento. Nothing fancy. I am guessing the people of Sacramento do not eat at great resturaunts that often. I ask the locals where I can go to get something to eat and they all suggest places like Chilis or Cheesecake Factory.
Biba in Sacramento
Le Bilig French Cafe in Auburn, just up the hill next to the bail bonds place.
It would help if you were a little more specific on details: location you are staying, transportation, type of cuisine you seek, price range, etc... There are some gems in the city despite the chain mentality. For the best breakfast and a scenic drive I suggest Katrina's in Auburn, great pancakes and corned beef hash. I can't wait to go back.
the people in sacramento actually do have a lot of great places to eat- i don't know who you're asking. we go out about 3 times a week and never to a chain! mulvaney's, biba, waterboy, lucca, centro, zocalo, l wine bar, ella. grange, moxie, fox and goose, lemon grass etc etc etc
have you checked these boards for ideas???
Squeeze Inn is kind of unique to Sacramento. Corti Brothers, although not a restaurant, is a unique grocery store where even foodies from the Bay Area come over to shop. Otherwise there are lots of really good non-chain restaurants in Sac, although I wouldn't call them "unique". It would be nice if you wouldn't start by insulting residents of this city.

What?? Of course we eat at great restaurants often. This is Sacramento, not the sticks.
The Waterboy, Hawkes, Mulvaney's, Akebono I or II, Paragary's Bar and Oven, Spataro's, El Centro Cocina, Cafe Bernardo, Magpie's, Dad's, LaBonne's Soup Kitchen, Mikuni, and many, many more. What locals are you talkin' to??
