FEBRUARY IN ROSEVILLE CA
It’s FEBRUARY 3, 2024! This marks the midpoint between the onset of winter and the arrival of spring. In the Roseville, CA area, this is a time when we can anticipate the soon blossoming of fruit trees, the vibrant blooms of camellias, and the first signs of bulbs emerging. It’s an exciting period, heralding the transition of seasons! And that’s not all. There’s even more exciting news for Roseville CA area…
ROSEVILLE CA RESTAURANT NEWS
So, which culinary gem has brought this honor to Roseville? None other than Guy’s for Lunch, located at 1249 Pleasant Grove Blvd, Roseville, CA 95678 (Phone: 916-740-8424). This casual California sandwich shop is winning hearts with its secret French cooking techniques, creating exceptional dishes like their standout chicken salad and pulled pork, which, according to the owner Guy Manwaring, “cooks for 3 days in its own fat, making it super tender.” Mixed with a sweet barbecue sauce and house-made jalapeno sauce, it strikes a perfect balance between flavor and heat. The rave reviews, including one from Yelper Josh P. who describes the result as “nothing short of amazing,” are a testament to its gastronomic excellence.
But there’s more! My personal anticipation went up sky-high when I read about their PASTRAMI sandwich. Having cherished memories of the best pastrami sandwiches from a little open-air cafe in Southern California, I’m eager to see if Guy’s for Lunch can match or even surpass those flavors. This is definitely a culinary adventure I won’t miss!
A word to the wise: try to visit outside rush hours if possible. Operating hours are currently 11am – 3pm, Tuesday through Saturday, and it’s known to get quite crowded.
And by the way! This isn’t their first rodeo on the Yelp top 100; they’ve achieved this distinction before, five years ago!

Here’s a video from a different Fogo de Chão (I’m not sure where) and I’m guessing it might be quite similar to our coming Fogo de Chão. What do you think? It does look GOOD!
And another quick note on local closures – the California Pizza Kitchen at the Fountains shopping center has said its goodbyes, leaving many locals missing its unique offerings. Thankfully, other locations remain accessible, including in Sacramento.
