good food near I-80 in ski clothes? [moved from SF Bay board]

When we come back from skiing along I-80 we're thinking about dinner in Auburn or Sacramento or such, but we're too tired and dressed weirdly to think of anything good. Please help save me from fast food. It just can't be such a nice place that they'd take one look at our fleece clothes and hat hair and kick us out.

    1. Pluto's (Fresh food for a hungry universe) is right off the freeway on 1st St. in Davis (next to Borders...Olive Dr or Richards Blvd exit)

      Great Salads and sandwiches and a quick stop where no one cares what you look like.



      1. Thanks, MSK. I'll check the website. Are there any Thai places perchance? Or Mexican?

        1. There are some pretty good reports about Taqueria Guadalajara. Folks like the carnitas and the giant burritos. The location on 417 Mace Blvd. is just South of Highway 80 and has a nice outdoor seating area. They have breakfast items, as well as lunch and dinner.
          Their menu says that they don't use lard .... I'll try not to hold that against them :~)
          Stopped by to check out the place on the way home from skiing but I had lunch already - looking forward to trying it some day soon.

          1. Ikeda's in Auburn is a good spot to stop; it's right off of the freeway and there is a big sign so it's tough to miss. Not only do they have good burgers, chicken sandwiches and the like, but their pies are very tasty and they even have a good selection of savory pot pies as well. Attached is a market that also sells a good selection of wine, cheeses and seasonal produce. They are a good spot to get some road-trip munchies and even more substantial fare if you needed to stock a condo for the weekend.
