Though it does not inspire as much conversation as its older, more beloved neighbor Jimboy’s Tacos, Suzie Burger has been the more solid culinary choice among locally owned, freeway-side 29th Street fast-food places since opening in 2008. Already fond of the Suzie’s cheeseburger and nicely gooey Philly-style cheesesteak, we were excited to discover the stand’s current special – a Philly cheeseburger. The sandwich includes white cheddar, bell pepper and onion from the cheesesteak along with a special-to-it lime and bacon aioli. The special will be available through Tuesday, Dec. 27. A side note: From 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on New Year’s Day, Suzie Burger will exchange a free burger, fries and soda for a blanket – to the first 1,000 people to bring in new or gently used blankets, to be donated to Sacramento’s Loaves & Fishes nonprofit benefiting the homeless.
$5.49 for a single patty, $6.99 for two. Through Tuesday, Dec. 27. 2820 P St.., Sacramento, 916-455-3400, www.suzieburger.com
