I will be going on a road trip from Los Angeles to Monterey next weekend. I'll be stopping at Big Sur Bakery for lunch and grabbing some drinks at Nepenthe (only because I love the view there). Should get to Monterey in time for dinner. I'm looking for inexpensive restaurants with good food. I'm open to all types of food and love hole in the wall spots. I'd be fine with Monterey proper, Pacific Grove, Carmel, Salinas, etc. The last time I was in the area, I really enjoyed my meal at El Zacatecano in Salinas. I don't know if that's a chowhound approved place, but I liked it a lot. So maybe places along that price range, if possible?
Would also love some lunch recommendations for the next day in the same areas.
