Lunch between Sac and Ashland where we'll stop for two days. Then on
to PDX. Heard Lily's in Mt. Shasta is closed. That was always a fallback
stop for lunch. And north of Ashland - new territory for this Chowhound
on the road.

    In Mt. Shasta you might want to try Billy Goat Tavern for lunch, or in Dunsmuir, Cornrstone Bakery.

      Lily's is under new ownership as of a couple of months ago. Haven't tried but looked over the new menu, a number of additions of dishes with Asian influences.

      Casa Ramos does a decent seafood molcajete in Mt. Shasta City.

        Glad to hear, didn't think much of the quality of the food from the previous owners. Hope this will signal an upgrade. The original owners did an amazing job, IMHO

          Totally agree. Drove by the Trinity Cafe on N. Mt. Shasta Blvd on the way in (Thurs night), quite a few cars out front, wondering if they're back on their game?

        This thread has ideas up to the Oregon border.

        Then for the segment of I-5 in Oregon, you'll need to check the Pacific Northwest board, such as this topic.
