We often eat at Fat City when we go to Old Sacramento. Great location, atmosphere, food and drinks. We like their Fat City sandwich but just about anything they serve is tasty.

Enjoyed our dinner here after visiting the Railroad Museum and Oldtown shops. I had the chicken pot pie my husband had the steak. Both were very good. The bar is fun and lively. Solid choice.

I took a couple of our managers and some of their people out for dinner in Old Sacramento. Fat City is a beautiful and spacious place with a warm feel. The service and the food are good. The prices are reasonable. Ask for Katie.

This is a fabulous restaurant. We just happened into it while walking through Old Town. The building itself is awesome. The waitress we had was wonderful. It was her first large table. We had appetizers, entree and dessert.

Showed up at closing time and was treated like an old friend! Claudio knows his beer and how to entertain while he's serving it! Like nowhere else I've ever been!

Two blocks from the Train Museum going south is Fat City (Family name of the owners, Fat). Great displays from the Chicago Expo from around 1900's and an amazing old bar at least over 100 years old. The service was fantastic and the food was...More
