Perry and Sophia Potiris opened the Original Perry's in 1968 at the local Arco station. The eatery, then known as Trukadero, was the first of Arco's coast-to-coast chain of truck-stop diners. When lines began to form for their fluffy omelets, fried chicken, and gravy-smothered meatloaf, Perry and Sophia opened Mr. Perry's in 1973. They placed it just across the way, preferring to compete with themselves than a brood of pancake-flipping octopuses. While both eateries have similar menus, Mr. Perry's has a more upscale edge. When Perry and Sophia decided to retire from the restaurant world, they turned over the reins to a longtime employee who began his own career with them as a busboy at age 16.
Mammoth portions of sandwiches, comfort fare and classic breakfasts test table strength within the log-cabin interior of Lumberjacks Restaurant. After perusing the lengthy menu, patrons can gaze up at the towering façade of roasted turkey clubs ($8.99), whose three layers of toast house bacon, american cheese, lettuce and tomato. A chili burger ($8.99), topped with cheddar and onions, doffs its uppermost bun to chivalrously greet suiting mouths. A slow-braised post roast with vegetables and gravy ($12.99) assumes its honored position among dinner entrees, arriving at tables with a choice of a side as well as soup or a custom-made lettuce amalgamation from the salad bar.

Each day after its opening in 1981, La Bou Café & Bakery’s customers would line up to grab one of owner Trong Nguyen's handmade croissants and a flavorful espresso drink. The plucky local café’s customer base was so loyal that La Bou eventually opened 12 locations across the Sacramento area.
