The holiday season is among us, and one of the most dreaded parts about the holidays is preparing a large meal for your guests. Sacramento is a large and diverse city with many dining locations to choose from. The holidays can be a tricky time for most restaurants, and it depends on many factors as to which places will be open.
Traditionally speaking, it's usually the diners open 24/7 and on holidays, but that isn't the case alone anymore. There are more places that are gearing toward opening on holidays to reach a larger customer base. Believe it or not, there are more than a few places that will be open and available for you to sit down and enjoy a dinner with your family this Christmas.
