Enroute to Chico CA, food along hiway 5

sharryd May 25, 2009 08:03 AM

Driving up to Chico in tomorrow morning; once we leave interstate 80 (outside of Sacramento) and start up 505/ hiway 5, looking for good food for breakfast or lunch, and then again on return for snacks or a break.

Will drive as far north as Orland on Interstate 5.

Thanks for any great food spots not to be missed; haven't driven this way forever.

      There is Nancy's Airport Cafe just west of I-5 at the main Willow's exit.
