the low down on the home town. – History.
Original Perry's (the E side of 99 & mack) was the first & it's a truck stop.
Mr. Perry (on the w side of 99 & mack) is still the same family.
and Kerrys closed in 1997.
Southsacians are lucky because Perry beats the pants off Sherris (sorry greenhaveners) and any diner you can find. It's prices are set well, it's country gravy is the best anywhere and it's steaks are not dog food, even though the price might suggest other wise.
Yeah sure you can go to the "JindaB" a block away but why the F would you when you can get biscuits and gravy for 4$ at Perrys. Salads are old school iceberg with LOTS of add ons. The b-fasts are legit and served all day. There IS NO MENU ITEM THAT ONLY SELLS FOR PART OF THE DAY except certain senior citizen meals.
Perry's is old. The founding dude lived a century ago and if your in Kansas somewhere theres a spot like that in every town but how often do you find that in CA!? I know people from as far away as Galt, Loomis, Dixon and Folsom that come here to eat because they know it's more than worth the few pence they ask for there food. It does get busy but what does that tell you other then it's good stuff!
Now there's this big argument that Mr. Perrys is better or Original Perrys is better but in truth they are the same restaurant with slightly different clientele.
At originals you will get a bigger 2am crowed.
At originals the early morning oldfolks come out more and the highschoolers tend to go there after prom and because they want to sit in the Valley High room (which is the name of the high school they attend)
Some say the gravy is better at the O and some say they love the "clean plate club" where they give kids a lolipop for cleaning there plate due to child hood instilled cognitive dissonance.
Which ever you prefer, S.Sac remains KING of the late night dining because we have not one, but TWO awesome restaurants within a half mile of each other. BEAT THAT ELK GROVE!!! you f'in Galt rejects!
