Family Road Trip Lunch on a Monday between Ventura and Santa Maria...Cold Springs Tavern?

RSMBob | Jul 23, 201108:45 AM     8

Heading up to SLO from SoCal next week for a week of vacation/camping. Looking for a great lunch spot Ventura-Santa Barbara-Solvang-Santa Maria. Is Cold Springs Tavern ok for kids (7 and 12)? From what I hear it looks like it would be a fun place to stop.

We're in no hurry so we could even do the Lompoc-Vandenberg-Casmalia route as well. If HP2 in Casmalia were open for lunch, we'd probably do that.

Looking for good food, nothing pricy. A great burger or BBQ would be good, a view also good. We fdo the trip every year although we are coming from the coast this year instad of across the central valley on Highway 166. Our usual lunch stop is either Jocko's for a burger or more recently, Rancho Nipomo Deli/BBQ.
