Trails is a restaurant on 21st just south of Broadway. I've driven by the place, but when I've thought about eating there, the online reviews have steered me clear of the place.
In this week's review, Sac Bee restaurant critic Blair Anthony Robertson fills in some of the details on why nobody I know has ever actually eaten there.
Trails is not a good restaurant, but neither is it a terrible one. It’s a place stuck in purgatory, anchored unceremoniously in a Sacramento food scene that no longer really exists...
Charming as it may be, Trails lost its way by refusing to set foot in the new and much more dynamic Sacramento, where we expect better food and know where to find it. There once was a time, many years ago, where Western-themed restaurants were all the rage in Sacramento, probably because Westerns were all the rage in movies and on TV. Folks even got dressed up in Western garb when they went out to eat here.
That Sacramento, cute as a button, no longer exists.
