After careful and thoughtful consideration, we have decided to close our restaurant but will continue to offer catering service.
We want to give a heartfelt thank you to this amazing city. Sac Town has given us a flurry of great memories and an abundance of love for the last two decades. Our loyal customers have become more like family.
We would also like to thank our staff whose hard work and commitment to our small business have helped make Sandra Dee’s a home away from home for us as well as our customers.
Last but not least, we would like to thank our business partners and vendors who allowed us to provide the best service and products to a wide variety of folks.
Our last official day will be July 20, 2019. During our final month of business, we are offering 20% off to celebrate twenty wonderful years of business. July 19th - 20th will be customer appreciation days that will include additional specials and discounts.
We would like to thank everyone again for choosing to spend their time and hard earned money with us. Running a restaurant is like inviting someone into your home and the people of Sacramento have made the best house guests anyone could ask for.
Thank you for your support.
