Between Oakland and Clayton must do's for lunch

I have to drop my sister off at the airport and thought I could make the best of it by going to someplace that would be normally out of the way. Any ideas of places in between Oakland and Clayton would be appreciated. I like all types of food and it can be high end or it can be from a food truck-just looking for something good.
Thank you in advance for your help.

  1. Well, from the airport to Clayton, if you get onto 24 you could stop at places in the Rockridge area without a big detour, and therefore Wood Tavern and it's amazing lunchtime pastrami sandwich would be right in your way. Or you could go to Fruitvale and head to some of the taco trucks and Mexican restaurants around there (right off 880).
