Featured: Inside Sacramento – Midtown-Sutter
A 1950s burger joint comes alive within a former “Orbit” -style gas station at the corner of 29th and P streets, complete with a pointed roof that looks like it migrated from Mars, circa 1960. Suzie Burger makes the mash-up of eras work like magic in a setting that can never be duplicated, with outstanding, proudly American food to seal the deal. Vintage architecture and clever interior design make Suzie Burger worth the first visit, but return trips will be driven by the namesake burgers, cheesesteaks and other mid-century delights produced by inventive brothers Matt and Fred Haines. Matt is the numbers guy, Fred the chef. The partnership at this Sacramento restaurant flourishes thanks to high-quality food, starting with 100 percent USDA Choice beef, along with hand-cut fries, the classic Philly cheesesteak, foot-long hot dogs and Suzie’s famous Chocolate Brick Sundae. Not exactly what the doctor ordered, but delicious every time.
