Loomis, the best little town in California, boasts some incredible places to dine.

Like many smaller towns, finding the restaurant gems may be difficult if you don’t know anyone from the area.

So, let us offer five places you should go to for your next food adventure in Loomis.


This diner is locally owned and serves up some of the best old-fashion burgers you’ll ever taste.

It’s biggest draw, however, may be its impressive menu of shakes. Taylor’s offers more than 300 shakes – and counting! The menu for shakes is an A-Z list. That’s how extensive it is. So, whatever icy sweet treat you’re craving, Taylor’s has you covered!

Taylor’s motto is straight forward: “bring back the essence and style of the old burger and shake shop, to the modern day.”  They’ve definitely done that with their lineup of shakes and burgers!

The burger menu is not as long as the shake menu, but there are no shortages of choices and flavors.

Taylor’s serves cheese burgers, bacon burgers, turkey burgers, spike burgers, Swiss mushroom, patty melts and a few other selections to satisfy your appetite for a juicy, grilled delight. For something a little lighter, Taylor’s also offers sandwiches and hot dogs, soups and breakfast items.

Loomis Basin Brewing Company

If you’re looking for something that’s “always fresh, always local,” this is the place. The Loomis Basin Brewing Company and the Gastropub Smokehouse will not disappoint.

The Gastropub Smokehouse is open Wednesday through Sunday and serves a wide variety of craft beers and delectable smoked foods. Among them: a Cuban sandwich (pulled pork and ham), St. Louis-style smoked ribs and a meat sampler (pulled pork, brisket, tri-tip, ribs or chicken).

This place is a BBQ lover’s dream. Here’s the full menu.

Green Elephant Restaurant

If you’re looking for a different pace outside burgers and BBQ, then go for little Asian fusion at Green Elephant Restaurant in Loomis.

It has 4.5 stars on Yelp as many Yelpers love to flock to this Southeast Asian cuisine time and again.
