Natomas Bites: Six Great Happy Hours



Whether it’s grabbing a quick drink after work or scoring a filling dinner on the cheap, everybody loves happy hour.

Here are six great happy hours in Natomas:

Malabar: Looking for a stylish place to meet a date for happy hour or a place to kick off a girls night out? Look no further than Malabar American Cooking. With happy hour seven days a week featuring a half dozen microbrews on draft for $3.75 to $2 tacos, this restaurant is a great go-to place in the neighborhood. See their entire happy hour menu on Cowtown Eats. Malabar is located at 2960 Del Paso Road, or online at

Buffalo Wild Wings: This restaurant may be a chain, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a great happy hour. Starting at 2 p.m., this popular hotspot’s $3 bites range from mini corn dogs to roasted garlic mushrooms. BWW’s $3 domestic draft beer and huge TVs make it the perfect place to watch a sporting event or catch up with your old fraternity brothers. See their entire happy hour menu on Cowtown Eats. Buffalo Wild Wings is located at 3635 N. Freeway Blvd., or online at

Tokyo Steak House: For something totally different, check out this teppanyaki-style Japanese restaurant (think Benihana) for happy hour. They’ve got sake starting at $3, domestic bottled beer for only $2 (!) and an array of rolls at great prices. You can do a California roll for just $3 to a Rainbow Roll (with spicy tuna, crab, salmon, sea bass, shrimp and tuna) for $10. If you’re in a happy hour rut, don’t forget to give this place a chance. See their entire happy hour menu on Cowtown Eats. Tokyo Steak House is located at 3521 N. Freeway Blvd., or online at

Carino’s Italian Grill: This happy hour is my personal go to spot before a Kings game. Their happy hours seem to fluctuate a bit, but the last time I was there, they were running happy hour all day. I like this spot because you can get a large domestic draft for just $5 (I love the large beer so you don’t have to waste time trying to get a second pint before tipoff.) and enough food so you won’t have to spend a fortune on hot dogs at the game. See their entire happy hour menu on Cowtown Eats. Carino’s Italian Grill is located at 3860 Truxel Road, or online at

Logan’s Roadhouse: This is my other favorite spot to hit before going to Sleep Train Arena. This restaurant’s bar offers literally the coldest beer at any bar in the Sacramento area, served in a frosty mug. Combine that with their $5 happy hour snacks and unlimited free peanuts, and you’ve got a winner. See their entire happy hour menu on Cowtown Eats. Logan’s Roadhouse is located at 3698 N. Freeway Blvd., or online at

Oshima Sushi & Fugu Lounge: I like to think of this spot at the Swiss Army Knife of happy hours. Cheap beer? Check, with $4 Coors light. A great place to watch sports? Check, with too many TVs to count. A menu with enough variety to grab a cheap dinner? Check, with dozens of rolls and other appetizers at great happy hour prices that last until 6:30 p.m. weekdays. See their entire menu at Cowtown Eats. Oshima Sushi & Fugu Lounge is located at 2071 Natomas Crossing Drive, or online at
