The NorCal Explorer's overview of Sacramento's classic burger joints.
I've eaten at six of them:
Whitey's Jolly Kone - not far from where I work in West Sacramento; outstanding.
Fanny Ann's - haven't had the Jiffy Burger, which to be honest sounds disgusting.
Jim-Denny's - not far from where I used to work, in downtown Sacramento. Greasy heaven.
Earl of Sandwich - also downtown; sorry to hear that it is no more.
Nation Wide Freezer Meats - a bit overpriced for what you get, I think.
Ford's Real Hamburgers - Not far from where my wife and I used to live, near Land Park.
Haven't been there for years, but I always liked it.
