Merlino's is an old roadside stand that features orange
freezes, hot dogs, and more. Not sure if this place is just closed for
the day or for good.
UPDATE 08/05 : This
former Merlino's location is operated by another company now, though still
open (as of a few months ago) and selling fruit freezes. Merlino's now
has a new location at 32nd and Folsom Boulevard in East Sacramento.
The Stockton Boulevard location closed a few years ago when Merlino's
went bankrupt for a while, as did several other locations and a factory.
When Merlino's reemerged, they reopened at the Folsom Boulevard site (about
1 3/4 mile north) and have also since started running seasonal freeze
stands at Raley Field in West Sacramento (where the minor league Sacramento
Rivercats baseball team plays) and at the Arden Fair mall near North Sacramento. Many thanks to Chris for
