Broderick Roadhouse Worth Planning Your Day in the Delta Around

West Sacramento is the way cooler younger brother to the over-achieving Eagle Scout of City of Sacramento.  West Sac is still little bit rude teenager and rapidly becoming hipster. Broderick Roadhouse is at the center of this transformation. Broderick Roadhouse evolved from the Wicked ‘Wich food truck. Exhibit A for why Sacramento and other cities should loosen regulations on food trucks. It serves up gastropub grub 7 days/nights a week at 319 Sixth Street in West Sacramento. It is a 15 minute walk or 7 long blocks from Rivercats Stadium. It is a quick detour from the Sacramento River bike trail. Although most people arrive by automobile. I dined at Broderick Roadhouse three times in the last month. The first two times on weeknights when the main dining room was quiet enough for a business related conversation. On the last occasion, our party of four arrived just after 6 on a Saturday to celebrate and we lucked out getting one of the last open tables in the quieter bar area. If you are looking for a rowdier time, then weekends are your best bet. The wait staff is excellent. One had the old soul of a diner waitress using “dear” liberally throughout our meal. All were quick, courteous and friendly. The Johnny Cash burger won “best burger in Sacramento” and is amazing. I also enjoyed the True Blue burger with bacon, blue cheese,  onion rings and tasty angus beef burger.  The flank steak on the same-name salad is marinated in a truly yummy sauce. The salad has both onion rings and french fries prompting my one warning. This is not a place to dine if you are on Weight Watchers. One friend joked that there is nothing on the menu for less than 3500 calories. Another friend limits himself to once a month even though he and his wife love the food. If you are planning a day in the North Delta region–biking, fishing, kayaking, fossicking–then plan your day to start with lunch or end with dinner at Brodericks Roadhouse. You will not find better food in the North Delta. UrbanSpoon review: 91% like (as of 4/6/14)
