Willow Ranch Restaurant
Another great pitstop if you're traveling from L.A. to S.F. (or vice versa). In 1998, a local farmer founded Willow Ranch with the aim of sharing his passion for cooking with the community. The restaurant carries on this legacy by preparing daily meals from scratch. The barbequed meats are slow-cooked for several hours using oak wood on an outside smoker. The Willow Ranch is well-known for its signature barbeque sauce, a central feature of their menu. This secret recipe has been savored and appreciated by barbeque enthusiasts and travelers from all over the country. In addition to all the meats, the menu does have a few vegetarian and pescatarian options like salads, garden burgers, and grilled salmon as well.
