Well I have just returned from driving I-5. We all know about Harris Ranch, good, costly and lots of time. As big fam of chickne fried steak I have had that a lot at Willow Ranch BBZ. But this time I had BBQ Tri tips, not the best but good. But my sons had two great burgers. One was a double with fries and the other was a bacon cheese burger. Big and juicy with lots of fries. They cost about 6.00 each. As Carl's would say a 6.00 house burger.
This is one of the safe places on the I-5, I can not recommend anything else.
Good eating Tom
