Had to choose between this thread and the Harris Ranch thread to pose the following - Can any of you I-5 regulars apprise us of what you think the better eating options are between, say, Sta Clarita and either Harris Ranch or Paso Robles? Will be heading toward Monterey in very short order (so can choose when to make the hop between I05 and 101). And.... 1. I've read all this thread's posts regarding establishments here. 2. I've explored Tejon Ranch last summer - I think I chose a Chipotle; not sure. Overwhelmingly unimpressed. 3. I've eaten at Harris. I'd consider it as "okay - could return". 4. NOT interested in fine dining. When on long-distance runs, the last thing I need to do is have a good steak & wine. Rather, our preference is for light and vegetarian; no booze. But that's just my druthers. And, on edit: now moved out of a SpC-specific thread to its own site. Thanks to all involved.
