Elk Grove's Best of Business, 2020

     It is time for this year's Elk Grove's Best of Business competition.  It is amazing the transformation Elk Grove has gone through since I  moved here in 1999.  We went from a few restaurants and traveling to South Sacramento to see a movie to a very vibrant community with plenty of wondrful companies.  Every company in the competition deserves our support, but I wanted to showcase a few of my favorites.  Of course, if you see a real estate agent that looks familiar (Testimonials), I would appreciate your vote. ;o)  Click here to vote for Elk Grove's Best of Business competition. 

My Top Choices

  • Best Local Non-Profit,  Runnin for Rhett-I belong to this organization as a participant, coach, and volunteer.  We are in the midst of coaching kids all over the Elk Grove/Sacramento area to prepare them for the Run Because You Can 5k coming up shortly. They all participate for free and 1,000 participants will get free running shoes.  We hope to do even more in the future!
  • Best Computer Repair, Flash Mobile Computers-I have used their services and they do a fantastic job.  They also catered my son's rehearsal dinner and our guests raved about their food and their service.
  • Best Mexican/Best Date Night Diner, Todo un Poco-This is my favorite Elk Grove Restaurant so I am really happy to be able to vote for it in two categories.  Great service!  Great ambiance!  Great food!
  • Best Elk Grove Brewery, Dreaming Dog Brewery-We are fortunate to have some great small breweries in Elk Grove, but Dreaming Dog is my favorite. Our running group has met there virtually from the day they opened and we have always been welcomed with open arms.  They have a great selection of tasy beer too!
  • Best Burger, Flaming Grill Cafe-You can't go wrong with their carnitas burger with its flavourful guacamole, homemade jalapenos, carnitas and juicy burger, but there are so many other wonderful burgers it is really hard to choose.  The specialty fries and great selection of beers are also a definite plus!
  • Best Local Coffee House, 18 Grams-This is our Sunday morning tradition, right after church.  I particularly like the Mexican Mocha!

Raymond Henson, SRES, GRI - What a great boast a post for local business!!! Isn't it wonderful when you have a great place to go after church for a good cup of coffee with family and friends. The places you listed sound pretty special! I hope you get lots of business from those business owners and their customers too!

I love the first picture!  Is that a bloody mary that your Dad is drinking?  It looks like he is about to make a wonderful speech and have a toast.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, thank you and yes, 18 Grams is pretty unique and fun to visit.

Grant Schneider   , I think they will appreciate it.  One of the restaurant owners calls me Twitter Ray and treats my whole family special.

Brian England, I believe that is a Michelada.  They are very good and, knowing my dad, he probably is about to make a speech.

Joan Cox, I probably know the good restaurants way too well.  It is the reason training with Runnin for Rhett is so important! ;o)
