Is it possible to just "drive through" a place that is a destination city for thousands? And then to stop and not find a place or two to eat?
We stopped here on our way to Fort Bragg from San Francisco because we wanted to continue our window shopping of the week before. Ordinarily, a sausage and "hot dog" restaurant wouldn't be my choice for a place to eat but we wanted something decent and inexpensive and the woman at the tourist office recommended this place and gave us tickets for free ice cream!...good choice.
I had a tasty, fragrant vegetarian sausage (that had great mouth-feel) and Sophia's salad and my spouse had a Provencial Pig (French flavors with shallots, green onions and spices) that he paired with a beer, a nice change for wine country.
The seating was so, so but the price (inexpensive) and the quick service made up for the atmosphere.
