Roundhouse Deli

When it comes to good food on the go, the following places—and dishes—passed Style’s takeout test with flying colors. In no particular order…


Back Forty Texas BBQ packs up their takeout entrées in giant bakery boxes, filling them with delicious smoked meats and scrumptious sides. My go-to order is the Best of Both, which is perfect for indecisive palates and comes with your choice of two proteins (pork ribs and BBQ chicken for yours truly), two fresh fixin’s—such as tangy coleslaw, garlic mashed potatoes, hearty chili, or mac and cheese—and either a hunk of cornbread with honey butter, banana bread, or a freshly baked mini loaf. All arrive at home safely packaged and piping hot!” backfortyroseville.com


Visconti's Ristorante

“The Linguine Calamari at Folsom’s beloved Visconti’s Ristorante is what you order when you’re craving comfort food and don’t want to cook. Loaded with garlic and white wine simmered in marinara sauce, this dish has the most perfectly cooked, tender calamari. A to-go serving comes with a house salad and garlic bread that’s perfect for sopping up all those seafood-infused juices. Also takeout-worthy is their freshly made marinara sauce, so you can attempt to make your own version of the dish—or you can be like me and just leave it to the pros.” viscontisristorante.com 


Extreme Hummus

“Not only does the aptly named Extreme Hummus in Citrus Heights have an array of hummus options (spicy chipotle, artichoke pesto, and cilantro jalapeño, to name a few), but their meat melts in your mouth, and the portions are beyond generous. I always opt for the Beef and Lamb Platter, which comes with the namesake proteins drizzled in tasty tzatziki sauce, plus rice, salad, pita bread, and your choice of hummus (I’m a sucker for the roasted garlic white bean). They also have a drive-thru, ensuring delicious eats from the comfort of your car.” extremehummusgyro.com 


Hisui Sushi

“Any time I’m craving sushi in my PJs, I pick up Hisui Sushi’s Sushi Special Combo. The simple yet totally satisfying combo comes with eight perfectly crafted pieces of California roll, six pieces of fresh, melt-in-your-mouth sashimi (tuna, salmon, and yellowtail), and five beautiful pieces of nigiri (tuna, salmon, escolar, yellowtail, and shrimp). Hisui always tries to keep it fresh, and this is evident with each bite. I mostly share this combo with my not-so-greedy other half but can easily demolish the whole thing myself.” hisuisushi.com  


Roundhouse Deli

“The Tri-Tip Tacos at Roundhouse Deli near Downtown Roseville are some of the best things to ever hit my lips. The meat is smoked fresh outside on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays; and the light, crispy, Parmesan-sprinkled shells provide the perfect vessel for the juicy beef, shredded cheese, lettuce (I always ask for extra!), tomatoes, and homemade hot sauce. What’s more, it’s family-owned, so the experience is always genuine and comfortable. Taco bout some tasty takeout!” 916-786-9023


Sacramento Pizza Company

“Despite my passionate love for pizza, I’m trying to be good and restrict it to once a week, so it has to be especially great. Enter Folsom’s Sacramento Pizza Company and their specialty pie: The SacPizzaCo. This beauty comes with their house-made marinara sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni, sausage, olives, mushrooms, green peppers, and freshly cut tomatoes. It might sound basic, but the fresh ingredients—combined with a light, airy crust—makes for the best takeout pizza that’s far from boring.” sacpizzaco.com
