Quickly – Davis

640 W Covell Blvd

Davis, CA 95616

Rating: ★★★½☆ 

Located in North Davis in the Save Mart shopping center, Quickly serves up a variety of boba drinks and some Asian dishes. Today, I ordered the lychee slush with lychee jelly as well as their popcorn chicken. The drink arrived first and tasted OK with a decent amount of flavor, but was nothing special. The popcorn chicken actually took a while to arrive. There was a large portion of chicken in the container, but the breading was pretty soft and was not crispy at all.

Overall, Quickly serves up a good selection of drink and menu items, but the resulting drinks and food are just OK. If you are in North Davis and are feeling like getting a boba drink, then Quickly will serve its purpose. If you have a chance, I suggest driving down to South Davis for Teabo instead.

Drewski’s Pit Stop

5504 Dudley Blvd

McClellan AFB, CA 95652

Rating: ★★½☆☆ 

In search for good tasting lunch near McClellan AFB, we ended up at Drewski’s Pit Stop. Having tried Drewski’s in the past at their food truck, I had high expectations during this visit. There is a good amount of seating around the restaurant inside and outside.

Today, we ordered the Mustang, Tricycle with a side of Drewski’s famous tots, and Mac & Cheese. The Mustang had Korean marinated beef, kimchi, daikon, sriracha-wasabi aioli, aged Havarti and Swiss on sliced French bread. The sandwich itself tasted quite greasy and was hard to keep together. The beef and kimchi tasted OK, but it didn’t taste special at all. The tricycle is basically grilled cheese consisting of cheddar, Swiss, and Havarti on sliced French bread. The sandwich was definitely cheesy and tasted OK, but there was not much flavor from this mix of cheeses. The tots were the best part because there was a great rosemary flavor that went well with Ketchup. The Mac & Cheese was way overpriced for the tiny cup received, and it didn’t even have much flavor. There was a good amount of cheese though.

Overall, this adventure to Drewski’s was quite disappointing with the mediocre slow service, expensive prices, long wait, and greasy food. If you wanted to try out an interesting sandwich, then Drewski’s would be an option, but don’t expect to eat anything healthy. You might have better luck at their food truck.

No.1 Buffet

7090 Stockton Blvd

Sacramento, CA 95823

Rating: ★★☆☆☆ 

The No.1 Buffet has been in Sacramento for many years now, and I have not been back to the establishment for a few years already. I hesitated to come back because I got food poisoning last time. There is a huge selection of food at this buffet. I would say this buffet has one of the largest selections of food out of many buffets. In addition to the ready to serve food that includes Chinese food, sushi, and dessert, there is a noodle station and Korean BBQ station where people prepare food for you.

Today, I just grabbed a variety of different types of food. The skewered chicken was very dry. The sui mai tasted OK. Overall, the food tasted mediocre. The good news is that I did not get sick this time. With that said, if you wanted to eat a large variety of different types of food, then No.1 Buffet would be a good choice, but I would not come here for great tasting food. I probably won’t come back unless I had a really good reason.
