Sacramento, CA - Dinner around station

Recommended Posts

KmH: remember you only get Double Points on two trips a day on the Double Days Promo, so if you do a RT to Davis for 400 Points (200 TQP) your LD Trains, if Paid, might not get the Double Points which would be more than 400 on the CZ/CS. Davis is a great little place for s layover!

 

If your LD Trains are AGR Awards it won't matter of course!

tp49,

Did you ever get a chance to find out Cilantro's hours?

I emailed them and got no reply, and they haven't come close to finishing their web site.

 

7AM - 7PM Monday to Friday and 10AM-7PM Saturday. Closed Sunday.

Yep, I forgot about that.

Cilantro's went out of business or moved before I got to Sacramento.

The Subway at 5th & J is not open on Saturday or Sunday.

 

Perko's gives senior citizens a 20% discount and they open at 6 am.

Reasons I go there:

 

Close to station.

Earn air miles via MilesPlus Dining along with Amtrak points with their card -

a twofer!

I noticed that about Cilantro's the other day. They had an eviction notice from the Sheriff in the window guess they were having financial issues.

Perkos is next door to the Vagabond Inn, across the Street and around the corner from the Amtrak Station!

 

It used to be a Denny's and the food is on a par with Dennys, not as good as breakfast in the Diner on a Train, or any meal in Davis, but it's OK for fueling up and killing time on weekends in what is basically a ghostly downtown Sacramento!

Different chains define "senior citizen" differently. Do you know how Perko's defines it?

On March 16 I arrived early on the CS ( 0525). I dropped off my large bag at baggage and left the smaller one in the sleeper lounge. I left the station about 6:05 and headed east and then south on 10th past the Capitol building to the Fox and Goose. I had a very good breakfast at a reasonable price.

I went there because Jim Denny's is closed Mondays.

No. I was not asked for ID to verify my age, but was given the discount after being presented with a full charge bill and asking about the discount.

I am 62.

 

Perko's web site says 60.

Note the 20% discount does not apply to items on the Seniors menu.
