Went for trivia night and had lots of fun. The activity provided opportunity to talk to others. Food was ok, but the trivia activity is what led us there.

Interesting interior with historic features, and good basic food - burgers, sandwiches, that kind of thing. Reasonably priced. Service a bit erratic but the whole experience was good. Wouldn't say it had a lot of atmosphere particularly, but not horribly touristy either.

Fat City has proudly served Sacramento for 40 years. While you will find some Asian items on the menu, such as a popular Chinese Chicken Salad and a simple chicken and vegetable stir fry, the cuisine is grounded in traditional American dishes with a few adventurous forays into international cuisine.
