Good eats or farms along the I-99 (LA to Sac)?
I'm travelling the I-99 this time,
Any recommendations for good eats or farms to visit along the I-99?
This includes: modesto, stockton, merced, turlock, madera to bakersfield etc
Thanks in advance
Sal's Mexican Restaurant at 2163 Park St in Selma - this is an institution, and is in the middle of your trip to Sac (a little over three hours to go). While n/b on 99, exit on 2nd Street, turn left, this becomes Nebraska and you make your first left turn onto Thompson, a couple of more blocks then left on Park Street. If you get lost, everyone knows where this restaurant is. I am partial to their Chile Verde plate. If the weather is cold, get some of the Cocido. Be prepared to be a little drowsy after, good Mexican food does that to me.
Not exactly a farm, but definitely worth a stop if you've got a cooler and would like to buy some sausages to take home with you-

In Bakersfield...Woolgrower's is good, I give a slight edge to Benji's, though, for Basque food. Los Tacos De Huicho for unbelievably good Mexican food, Sunday Brunch at the Crystal Palace will fill you up for the entire day, Dewar's for Ice Cream, and...if you have the time or inclination...a margarita at Mexicali.
Superior Dairy in Hanford...about 20 miles west of Visalia...is also worth a stop for ice cream.
