SFO to LAX road trip--guidance/suggestions?

Steve Drucker | Feb 21, 2001 05:01 AM

A co-worker and I will be driving from San Francicso to LA on Sat.

Although we would prefer the coastal route, the fact that our spouses will be staying home will probably push us to the interstate.

Any suggestions on where to eat about midway?

Also, I would dearly love to see some of the fabled coastal scenery. Does it make sense in the context of a one day trip -- without chewing up too much time, to drive for a portion along the coast (and eat well), and go the rest of the way on interstate?

Any all eating/navigating guidance greatly appreciated!

Our LA destination is a hotel in Westwood. I shudder at all the bad meals I've had in LA (this will be my first trip there with possible Chowhound assistance, however), and I'm afraid with this toney location I'm in for more of the same. Any suggestions?
