Dined for lunch recently and was impressed. Our server was great and was attentive. I ordered the sandwich and clam chowder combo. The soup was rich and creamy with great flavor. The half sand was also tasty with pastrami and turkey.

This is a good restaurant with fresh salads, sandwiches and burgers. The chocolate pie is homemade and delicious. This is a nice place for a family lunch in Old Sacramento. We would definitely eat here again.

The atmosphere, service, and food were all excellent. We had salads and sandwiches that suited the four of us (age 7 - 66). The service was attentive. We will definitely go back when visiting family in Sacramento.

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.

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.
