Husick’s Hardware and Country Store is the only place to eat in town. It serves lunch Tuesday-Sunday and enjoys a 90% favorable rating on Urbanspoon (http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/36/1438931/restaurant/Sacramento/Husick-Hardware-Deli-Clarksburg).
It goes by several names: Husick’s Country Store, Husick’s Hardware and Deli. They are all located at 36510 Riverview Drive in Clarksburg. Located between the Bogle Winery and the Old Sugar Mill it is a great place to stop for a gourmet sandwich or salad at a reasonable price. There is indoor and outdoor seating.
I gave it a whirl on a rainy day so I was happy to sit in the comfortably warm indoor dining area. The Mason pannini was delicious: turkey, provolone, rosemary bacon, peppericini, and mustard/mayo. I rounded out my meal with chips and a soda for just over $10. It was satisfying–more so with the side of pasta salad that is part of a sandwich order.
Husick’s would also be a great place to grab a cup of coffee. They serve Old Soul beans. I liked the seating area with comfy chairs and a year’s worth of Horse&Rider magazines. There are local food goods and a few garden items for sale as well.
Clarksburg has a long way to go before it rivals St. Helena or Calistoga; however, it also does not have the hassle of crowds. And there is something about the Sacramento River and the surrounding sloughs that force you to slow down and take a deep breath.
