Best of Folsom 2003

Best Breakfast: Gold Miner’s Cafe
The wait in line on a Sunday morning is proof enough that this place is one of the most popular eats in town. Specifically, homemade biscuits, awesome omelets, and breakfast skillets! A long wait, but most will agree, it is worth it!
426 E Bidwell St
Folsom, CA 95630

Best Authentic Mexican Restaurant: Sol Azteca
Sol Azteca was recently remodeled, and its new decor only adds to what has always been one of Folsom’s favorite restaurants… the Carnitas Burritos are recommended by one of our MyFolsom community members.
409 Natoma St
Folsom CA 95630
(916) 351-9083

Best Non-Authentic Mexican Restaurant: Dos Coyotes
When you are hungering for some great non-authentic Mexican food, Dos serves up some great ‘fresh mex’ at a pretty reasonable price. We recommend the Southwest Burrito!
Honorable Mention: Sharky’s
13385 Folsom Blvd.
Folsom, CA 95630
(916) 351-9750

Best Chinese Restaurant: Jennie’s Palace
Jennie’s was a landslide victor in this category – probably because it’s not your average Chinese restaurant! Jennie herself always makes sure she stops by to say “hi”. You’ll notice her right away – she is very chatty, funny, and loud! Plus the food is great, at a very reasonable price!
1004 E Bidwell St
Folsom, CA 95630-5552
(916) 984-1208

Best American Food: Tahoe Joe’s
Although Tahoe Joe’s is relatively new to Folsom, it was an instant hit! A great steakhouse, and a very trendy spot to go out. Some of our members recommend the peppercorn steak and potato, plus their homemade lemonade!
191 Blue Ravine Road
Folsom, CA 95630
(916) 355-8420

Best European Food: Streets of London
“SOL” is a great place to grab a bite that is a taste of Olde England – whether it be fish & chips, bangers & mash or homemade pasties… you’ll probably enjoy them all with a pint ‘o Guinness to boot!
Honorable Mention: Mama Ann’s, Bidwell Street Bistro
649 East Bidwell
Folsom CA 95630

Best Ice Cream: Tasty Time
Local to only Folsom, Tasty Time has 2 locations to serve you the best ice cream & frozen yogurt. They’re not only known for ice cream, they also have great smoothies, freezes, and ice cream cakes too! Tasty Time even has a mobile truck for business events, too.

(916) 351-07481

Best Pizza: Ciro’s
If you’re a fan of “pizza by the slice”, Ciro’s is the only game in town when it comes to a quality pizza. Stop by on your lunch break or pick up a pie on your way home from work – you won’t regret it!
Honorable Mention: Round Table
241 Blue Ravine Road
Folsom CA 95630
(916) 983-5757

Best Sandwich Shop: Mama Ann’s Italian Market
When you have the urge for a “real” italian sandwich just like they serve up on an East Coast market, try Mama Ann’s. One community member recommends the vegetarian sandwich, which is “tasty and filling”! Not only do they have awesome sandwiches, but a very wide selection of italian foods, especially wine & cheese.
Honorable Mention: Beachhouse Deli
317 Natoma St
Folsom CA 95630
(916) 294-9600

Best Burgers: Willie’s Burgers
There’s just no comparison when it comes to Willie’s. MyFolsom.Com voters will all tell you that Willie’s has the best burgers in all of Folsom… Community member Folsom Phillip notes: “What’s better than grabbing a burger, a beer, and watching SportsCenter on television?” In our minds, nothing.
Riley Street, in Raley’s Parking lot

Best Coffee Shop: Bella Bru
Bella Bru is not your standard coffee shop. Pastries, salads, pizza, beer and wine are all part of Bella Bru’s wide variety, and you can always hear music there as well. Dog lovers will be happy to know that their pooch is always welcome in the outdoor dining area, too.

Folsom CA 95630
(916) 983-4003

Best Chain Restaurant: Mimi’s Cafe
Mimi’s may be a ‘chain” restaurant, but their food is second to none. Even with the wide variety of great food throughout the city, Mimi’s is always packed of customers waiting to get their hands on Mimi’s muffins, pasta, meats & fish, and some of the best desserts in the world. It’s no wonder everybody loves Mimi’s.
2719 E. Bidwell St.
Folsom, CA 95630

Best Fast Food: Jimboy’s Tacos
Jimboy’s has always been a popular spot for many a Sacramento-area native for many years now. Those who are Bay Area transplants and are new to Folsom may not recognize this place, but one stop and you’ll know why it’s so popular. Serving up an authentic mexican meal at a modest price, Jimboy’s is always a great option when you’re on the go. “Boy oh boy! Jimboys!”
