After hearing Jax at the Tracks was on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, I knew I wanted to go. My experience with diners on TV shows is not always “good.” Of course, if you will be on a TV show, you’ll make the food as good as possible. For common folks like myself? Maybe not. You see Jax by the Tracks on Food Network here.
Recently I went to Crepes & Burgers in Folsom, California. I’ve driven through the greater Folsom area several times now, and I always seem to gravitate here.
Now I’m not sure if you can classify it as a diner, but it’s close enough. There are now 3 locations in Citrus Heights, Fair Oaks, and their newest location in Folsom. It’s quickly become one of my more favorite Northern California dining spots. It’s an easy take-out spot, and food can be ready in 15 minutes. Since it’s roughly 90 minutes from my house, it’s a great spot if I don’t want to wait to eat back in Napa.
Recently I was in Oakland and stopped at the Daughter’s Diner for takeout on my way home. I didn’t really feel like driving another hour on an empty stomach.
It is open Wednesday-Sunday 9-9. Interesting, a diner isn’t open earlier, but I’ve also been to diners not open on Sundays…
While in Sacramento, I knew I wanted to go to Rick’s Dessert Diner. To be honest, a diner that only serves dessert seems like a dream to me. My favorite thing to order at diners is cake anyway!
Rick’s has been voted the number 1 place for dessert in Sacramento for several years.
