Wicked West Pizza and BBQ, a neighborhood favorite with positive reviews, closed its location on Jefferson Blvd. in West Sac just before Thanksgiving.
Their newer location at the Ikea shopping center in West Sac remains opening.
In a Facebook post, the owners said the Jefferson location wasn't enough business to sustain that space.
Despite the unwavering support of so many, our resources were nonetheless underutilized at this location. We are hoping all of you will come visit us at our Ikea location to help give this new venture a healthy start. We’ve listened to your comments and are trying our hardest to refine our new location into a place you’ll love.
This lively spot offers an arcade for the younger members of the family; and parents will be thrilled with the menu, which is built upon organic, locally-sourced ingredients. The briskly-selling barbecued items (from hand-pulled pork and beef tri-tip to roasted chicken) are all hickory-smoked on the premises; and the pizzas feature some fun and interesting combinations.

Gift ideas for the craft beer geek in your life - Beer and beer-related stuff make great gifts. But don’t go beer shopping without some idea of what you’re looking for. With hundreds of labels staring back at you, there’s just too much going on to sort through it all. One wrong move – showing up at a Christmas gathering looking all smug because you brought a case of Blue Moon and a bunch of orange slices, for instance – can have lasting ramifications.

Feast Q&A: TableVine brings a wine-country vibe to downtown - As its name implies, a wine-country vibe infuses TableVine, downtown Sacramento’s newest “casual dining” restaurant. But those inspirational vineyards go far beyond California, and TableVine is working on a wine list to match. “It’s just in its infancy, but it’s a world (wine) list,” explained Dan Sneed, TableVine’s owner. “The food is meant to go with the wine on our list." Debbie Arrington in the Sac Bee.
Eat cheap, and well, across the Causeway - The problem with inexpensive restaurants that cater to students, however, is that they’re so filled with students. But many Aggies are out of town this Thanksgiving weekend, and they will clear out in droves when UC Davis starts its winter break Dec. 14. So go on, curious but post- or non-academic Sacramentans and Dixonites: Descend on Davis, where one can eat like a king or queen on a crisp $20 bill. Or at least like an engineering student with a discriminating palate. Carla Meyer in the Sac Bee.
Learning what's new at Seasons 52 - Oftentimes restaurant managers are so busy running their restaurant that you don't get to have time for a good conversation. But when you get the chance, it can be very informative. Such was the case this week when I went to check out Seasons 52's new winter menu. Catherine Enfield on Munchie Musings.
Paragary proposes six-story boutique hotel in midtown - With Sacramento's economy improving and the expanded hospital serving as a magnet for business, Paragary is scrapping plans to renovate the building and now plans to raze it. "I finally made the leap to demolish the building and start from scratch," he said. The ground floor of the new building would feature a Cafe Bernardo and Monkey Bar.
