Tip-top tri-tip


Just a block shy from the constant traffic near McKinley Park, you’ll find the easily overlooked corner store Roxie Deli & Grocery, serving up some of the best barbecue sandwiches in Sacramento. Its Monday Smoked Meat special, along with the other daily specials, are smoked right in the parking lot. The tri-tip and pulled-pork sandwich, in particular, is tender and full of flavor but doesn’t leave behind the mess expected that most barbecue entrees do. Complimented with fresh produce and a variety of rolls or sliced bread, sandwich lovers rejoice. Prices start at $6.49 for a junior. 3340 C Street, (916) 443-5402, www.roxiedeli.com.
