Places to eat worth stopping on a Hwy 5 trip from Oakland to Anaheim
Not too excited at the prospect of eating In'n'Out for lunch *and* dinner. Can anyone recommend anywhere simple and tasty to eat on this trip? 580 to 5, all the way... We're expecting to be near Tracy/Patterson for lunch and anywhere from to Anaheim for dinner. Breaks likely around Kettleman City, Santa Clarita, and then anywhere off 5 until Anaheim. We eat pretty much anything, just don't want anywhere serving mostly fried food. Three adults and two young kids, so nothing too fancy...
Some prior posts to consider:
(on the last one, I think I linked directly to PolarBear's last post specifically on the five, if not scroll down).
Personally, I love the detour 10 minutes off the five to Wolfsen's in Gustine.
Oakland to Tracy is only about 1 hr. Why not just have early lunch in Oakland. There's practically nothing along I-5 (not hwy 5, btw). eat a late dinner when you get to LA.
