I-5 eats from San Jose to LA

Anyone know a good place to eat off I-5 going from San Jose to Los Angeles? Not Harris Ranch...but, dinerlike and not too pricey? I've gone to the Apricot Tree and I am not too fond of it. Thanks

    I think that Los Banos is your best bet.

        Great list, only thing I see missing is the taco truck on Avenue 7 @ 4 miles east of I-5.

          ROFL! Added Rositas truck (Russell and Nees Ave) - is this the same truck? I'd be surprised if the truck locations don't follow the local harvests.

            That's it, in fact here's an older post from a year and a half ago where you and I discussed it.


            Note that you can return to S bound I-5 via Russell Ave. without backtracking on Nees.
