You'd think this question would have been answered by now, but if it has been, I couldn't find it.
I'm going to be driving to Santa Barbara from Oakland via 101. I imagine I'll be wanting lunch somewhere south of San Jose and north of San Luis Obispo (I used to make this drive several times a year when I was at UCSB, but of course no chowhound then!).
Any chowtips would be most welcome (please be as specific as possible about the name of the place, where it is, etc.!).
