Road trip advice: NEVER EVER go of the main road.
I tried that once. I was on my way to Tahoe, and stopped in a small family-owned place in Dixon. Maybe 10 tables, two waiters. We ordered basic turkey or BLT sandwhiches, because we wanted to keep going, but don't trust fast food. Anyways, we place our order and wait.
And then we wait some more.
And then we leave.
Sure, we each had a soda, but we payed them in the time...
