Ostensibly named after the nearby Tallac Village neighborhood, today‘s destination at 60th St. and 14th Ave. is actually in the Tahoe Park area just to the north. Village Drive In is one of three old-school roadside diners within easy riding distance of Barrio (the others being East Sac‘s Cookie‘s Drive In and Whitey‘s Jolly Kone in old West Sac). All offer similar fare that‘s neither a gourmet nor a particularly healthful throwback to the days when nobody on this side of the Pacific even heard of tofu. In addition to the typical shakes and burgers, it‘s rumored that Village offers some vegetarian options, although I could not confirm this. But who goes there for brussels sprouts anyway? Since the drive in opens at 11, the ride leaves at 10.

The route stops in old West Sacramento for a blast from the past, Whitey‘s Jolly Kone. This hamburger/hot dog/fries stand may have opened in 1963 but it‘s got a real ‘40s-‘50s vibe. What make it really stand out are its unusual milkshake flavors, including banana, blackberry, Butterfinger, butterscotch, cherry and peanut butter. There are also sundaes of various types and soft serve cones. Also available are a number of burgers, dogs, burritos, tacos and tostadas and a handful of side dishes. Health food it ain‘t, but the menu will take you back to the days when you could pig out on this stuff and not gain an ounce. This is classified as a lunch ride, but do what you want. Since this joint opens at 11, the ride always starts at 9:30 so we can arrive slightly early to get in line. Ride starts from the NE corner of the parking lot.

East Sac‘s answer to Whitey‘s Jolly Kone is Cookie‘s Drive in, a modest take-out-only joint near CSUS that‘s been serving up fancy burgers and arguably the area‘s best, thickest shakes for 65 years. As with Whitey‘s, Cookie‘s opens at 11, so the ride leaves at 9:30. The route loops through Land Park, Downtown and East Sac before returning via Meadowview and the Pocket. Ride starts from the NE corner of the parking lot. Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/45671201 Note: Registration deadline is 12 hours prior to the ride start.

The route stops in old West Sacramento for a blast from the past, Whitey‘s Jolly Kone. This hamburger/hot dog/fries stand may have opened in 1963 but it‘s got a real ‘40s-‘50s vibe. What make it really stand out are its unusual milkshake flavors, including banana, blackberry, Butterfinger, butterscotch, cherry and peanut butter. There are also sundaes of various types and soft serve cones. Also available are a number of burgers, dogs, burritos, tacos and tostadas and a handful of side dishes. Health food it ain‘t, but the menu will take you back to the days when you could pig out on this stuff and not gain an ounce. This is classified as a lunch ride, but do what you want. Since this joint opens at 11, the ride always starts at 9:30 so we can arrive slightly early to get in line. Ride starts from the NE corner of the parking lot.

Ostensibly named after the nearby Tallac Village neighborhood, today‘s destination at 60th St. and 14th Ave. is actually in the Tahoe Park area just to the north. Village Drive In is one of three old-school roadside diners within easy riding distance of Barrio (the others being East Sac‘s Cookie‘s Drive In and Whitey‘s Jolly Kone in old West Sac). All offer similar fare that‘s neither a gourmet nor a particularly healthful throwback to the days when nobody on this side of the Pacific even heard of tofu. In addition to the typical shakes and burgers, it‘s rumored that Village offers some vegetarian options, although I could not confirm this. But who goes there for brussels sprouts anyway? Since the drive in opens at 11, the ride leaves at 10. Ride starts from the NE corner of the parking lot. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/45578293 Note: Registration deadline is 12 hours prior to the ride start.
