Squeeze Inn

Once upon a time a restaurant in Sacramento was featured on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives".  I haven't see the review but according to those who have, it's worth a sizable wait to try out.  It was over a year ago when we tried to eat at the Squeeze Inn at its old location.  The wait was over 45 minutes then and we just couldn't spare the time.  When their old location was deemed inaccessible by licensing because it was always so crowded you couldn't get a wheelchair down an aisle, they closed up shop and we thought that was the end.  Turns out they were just regrouping and making plans to open a restaurant in South Sacramento, not far from the Friends of the Library Book Den (for gently used books).

Saturday we were at the Book Den for the Warehouse Sale.  Afterwards we wanted to lunch somewhere new when we drove past Squeeze Inn.  There were only a dozen people in line (at least only that many visible from the road).  

We pulled into the parking lot and got in line.  Within 15 minutes we were inside.  The place was packed... 

We barely had time to have someone take our picture...

and study the menu which was larger than we expected...

before one of the enthusiastic wait staff took our order.

We watched the kitchen crew working their way through the orders until our "Squeezeburgers" arrived in front of us.

It was a delicious hamburger.  One of its "gimmicks" is an 8 x 8 x 1/8 sheet of cheese which is melted/fried  over the hamburger.  It kind of looks like a slice of cheese made up of shredded cheese.

All in all a delicious experience.  I recommend it highly.
