Garcia's--Our Favorite Place to Stop

Most of you know that we have a little cabin up above Sonora, so we drive up that way every couple of weeks--it's also the main road to Yosemite from the Bay Area. And we have been eating at Garcia's between Ripon and Escalon pretty regularly now. It's far an above our favorite along this road. If you need help finding it, it's behind the convenience store right where French Camp Road meets Highway 120/108.


Great home-cooked Mexican food, with amazing prices and really friendly people. We always stop here if it's open...and then grab some fruit from the nice kids at the produce stand at Wagner Road just a hundred yards later, for $0.90 a pound. A perfect lunch on the road...and the nicest people you'll ever meet.
