LA to Sac on 99

Where to stop for lunch? First time driving back from LA to Sac (are
going I-5 tomorrow cuz we have a giant deadline). Can relax a bit
returning next Saturday.

  1. Depends on what time you're leaving, and when you want to eat lunch. I'd be sorely tempted to hit the Noriega Hotel in Bakersfield for basque, but that leaves you with a long drive with a huge lunch to digest.

    1. Detour into charming and historic Clovis north of Fresno for the Trelio restaurant depending upon your timing for an early dinner maybe - a surprising find in this chunk of ag land but ag is very big business and very big international business so this is the power dinner spot in the lower San Joaquin Valley. Check their website for hours of operation:

      Or get the Norwegian plate lunch in Kingsburg at Dala Horse.

      1. It is a stretch for glbtrtr to recommend Trelio in Clovis. The question was where to stop for lunch. Trelio is never open for lunch, only for dinner after 5:30
