    Dad's Luncheonette


    Good trip I think. Enjoy the food.
    Looks like Sam's Luncheonette got one of the old Victoria Station cars. highway 1/101 ends at a tiny place in BC
    where we could turn around or head off down a dirt road. We asked how far to a petrol station and were told "about 45 minutes".

    my wife and i made this drive a few years back and she loved every part of it--especially the food. i'll try to remember to ask her to remind me of some of the places we ate.

    If it is still around, try the Fat Cats Cafe in Avila Beach (near Pismo Beach, south of SLO). The food there may have been delicious because we were very wet and cold after sailing around Pt. Conception, but I still have fond memories of that place.

    We did this trip 4 years ago while researching and visiting universities for the kids. Stay in Big Sur for a night at the Ventana Inn and spa, great restaurant as well. We ate in two of the places. One is Half Moon Bay and one in San Luis. Both were very nice indeed. Great memories of that trip. I even did a thread on it...

    ^ One of my favourite meals and I agree with you Dill, Alaskan King Crab or sometimes known as Nova Scotia Deep Sea Crab is the best crab I have tasted.

    OK fellas. Thanks for the heads up but having eaten both they look and taste the same.

    And both extremely expensive here in Thailand.

    So what is that? About a twelve hour drive, in all?
    Are you going in a campervan or car Tom?
    Be nice to do that in an old Yankee muscle car. Ant would be well jel

    This site has some nice ones and the caravan from Breaking Bad, no pink Cadillac though

    The Camaro SS looks sweet, but this would be more apt heading to San Francisco

    I can drive ten minutes to a local fishing dock drop a pot and pull a ton out of the sound. Nothing like a fresh dungeness you caught yourself. Only thing I have to do is stop off at the store afterwards and get the cold beer to go along with it.

    Maybe you were drunk when you at those crabs because they are nothing alike in flavor. The Atlantic variety you mentioned it more like snow crab then Alaskan king mate. Nothing alike mate.
