Familiar names topped the list of Sacramento establishments Lyft passengers visited in 2017, the rideshare company announced in unveiling its annual Lyftie Awards on Wednesday.

Golden 1 Center was, predictably, the most-trafficked entertainment venue for the second consecutive year following its October 2015 opening. UC Davis bested Sacramento State for the title of most-visited university in the greater area.

Sacramento’s 2017 Lyftie Award recipients, in full, were:

▪ Most visited restaurant – Firestone Public House

Souvla in Hayes Valley, a trendy Greek sandwich shop in San Francisco, was the most-visited restaurant in Lyft’s 32 nationwide markets. No place was more popular for “quick bites” than a Las Vegas In-N-Out Burger.

Good Times at Davey Wayne’s surpassed another Los Angeles watering hole, The Abbey, after back-to-back years as the bar of choice for Lyft passengers. The Abbey remained the most-frequented LGBTQ staple in Lyft’s market.

Lyft has named most visited restaurant, most visited bar and other top drop-off destinations in Sacramento, as part of the rideshare company’s Lyftie awards. Here are 2016’s most dropped-off destinations in Sacramento.
