The Yard House breaks the “Non-Chain” rule, but the draw of 140 beers on tap was too powerful to resist! Located in the Fountains of Roseville, the Yard House is a perfect fit. The designers somehow managed to turn this former Smith & Hawkin’s store into a great looking restaurant with one of the biggest bars I’ve seen. Read More, see photos→
The Ro Sham Burgers decided it was time to do a little multi-tasking. With the NBA Playoffs, NHL Playoffs, Giants and A’s games all going on at the same time, patronizing a local sports bar that is well known for its awesome burgers and brew became the obvious choice. Clubhouse 56 had been on our burger radar for quite some time now and this night was the perfect opportunity for us to check out this neighborhood watering hole and eatery.

With the weather being so nice, and all of us available, we decided to take a trek up to ElDorado Hills and check out Relish Burger Bar.
The Burger Bar sits in the corner of a typical up-scale looking mini mall. The outdoor patio, perched above Latrobe and White Rock Road, looks really nice. Unfortunately, there was a Blues band playing out there. Too bad, we really wanted to enjoy the sun. It’s not that we don’t like Blues, but we do like to be able to talk to each other without yelling. (I am not old!)
Inside, Relish is a cross between a diner and a nice restaurant, booths lining the wall and tables within. We pulled up a table for 6 (and a half), so our waitress had her work cut out for her.
ROAD TRIP!!! Nothing says good times and great beers like a good ole fashioned road trip. Since one of our RSB’s was turning the spry age of 40 this weekend, we were off on a quest for an awesome burger not located in the Sacramento region. Our journey took us to the Russian River Pub in Forestville, CA. Guy Feiri recently featured this roadside pub on his show DDD. As we sat down on their outdoor seating area we were cheerfully greeted by the owner and waitress. Read More, see photos→
The Ro Sham Burgers visited Spin, Sacramento‘s newest gourmet burger joint owned by the 33rd st, Bistro co.. The RSB’s were impressed with the quality beer selection(not diverse, just quality) which included Racer 5 IPA and the local Monkey Knife Fight. Once we were all satisfied with our quenching beverage, we indulged ourselves with a unique twist on a Southern favorite(deep fried pickles). The dill pickles came lightly battered and were accompanied with a delicious sriracha ranch dipping sauce. Now that we were off to a fantastic start, it’s time to “talk burger.” The usual was ordered, bacon and white cheddar cheese burger, as well as a bison burger. All burger were ordered correctly…medium rare, of course.
