Later this week, Sacramento's historic Squeeze Inn burger joint will be reopening at its new location at 5301 Power Inn Road with a Re-Grand Opening to be held in mid-March. The Squeeze Inn was forced to relocate following an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) lawsuit filed by a professional litigant.
The Squeeze Inn, which appeared on the Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, is equally famous for it's 1/3 pound hamburger with a bubbling cheese skirt as it is for the original building's tight quarters. The new location, just around the corner from the historic original location, will incorporate many of the charms of the original location, including the original countertop and barstools.
While it's sad to see a historic part of the community changing, the Squeeze Inn is fortunate to be able to keep its doors open at the new location. Unfortunately, not all small business owners are as lucky, many being forced to close their doors when targeted by abusive lawsuits.
