CB Students are hit by a great restaurant’s demise.
If you were hungry for a burger in Sacramento, you could always depend on Ford’s Real Hamburgers on Sutterville Rd. and Freeport Blvd. to be open and ready to make you a great burger. Well, not anymore.
Ford’s Real Hamburgers has closed for a number of reasons. The restaurant was going through a lawsuit which would require them to build a new parking lot and they were experiencing a dramatic decrease in customers.
Precious Ramirez (‘13) had a summer job at Ford’s. She, like many, is sad to see this wonderful establishment close its doors.
“It sucks to see that the place you worked at is closed,” says Ramirez, “especially because they served quality food.”
Along with great burgers, Ford’s also served up a healthy atmosphere for it’s workers. Ramirez says, “it was cool working there, chill environment and yes I will definitely miss it.”
Here are three suggestions of Sacramento restaurants to help students cope with Ford’s closing:
Scott’s Burger Shack, which is located only a few minutes away from Christian Brothers boasts great burgers for less cash. Scott’s also has a menu with variety. They have not only burgers, but assorted foods like tacos, burritos, and deep fried mushrooms.
Capitol Dawg in Midtown creates a lot of delicious memories with its tasty dogs. The walls of this fun restaurant are covered with pictures of the celebrities who have visited the Sacramento landmark, and its menu features over thirty different signature dogs/
Oscar’s Very Mexican Food has found its way into the gates of CB for generations. Oscar’s is a short drive from the school, and features a great menu of Mexican classics.
Despite there being an abundance of great food available at Sacramento area restaurants, the Talon still mourns the loss of one of CB’s favorite local businesses.
