    I -5 runs through some pretty sparse areas.  It does go right through Sacramento and there are some places in the restaurant page for that town.

    This is where I'd go if I were in Sacramento.

    There are a lot of threads on here with places in the Los Angeles area.
     
    North of Los Angeles is a city named Buttonwillow.  I had terrific, made to order (Read slow) pupusas there.  I'd stop again.  It's right at the exit off of Interstate 5.
     
    Tita's Pupuseria
    20643 Tracy Ave
    Buttonwillow, CA 93206
     
    I forgot something about Tita's.  They have a brick and mortar restaurant and a truck.  I ate at the truck.  The best pupusas I've ever had.

    Granzella's in Williams is pretty good.  They have every olive made in California.  I think this is the Olive Belt of California.

    There are a few casinos along I5 that have some coffee shops inside.  I can't tell you about the food, but they're not McDonald's or Carl's Jr.
     
    Somewhere along the way is a place that I think is called The Olive Pit.  If you don't see it or know it's coming up, you'll miss it.  I missed it.
     
    Probably like a roadside olive stand that also sells jars of honey.

    Sorry I'm a lttle late for the dance. Here are my reommendations for the drive.
     
    Novack's- Albany, oregon
                                    A full fledged Hungarian restaurant and bakery. I like the hungarian specialties especiall the goulash and a hungarian bread called lantos. The bakery has good stuff. I also like the breakfasts. Well worth a stop.
    K and R Drive-In- Rice hill, Oregon
                                             Huge ice cream cones with unpqua ice cream, a very high butterfat ice cream. Snall cones 2 large scoops, medium 4 scoops, large 6 scoops. You also have to have a minmum of two scoops per flavor as thety will not mix scoops of less than 2. Well worth a stop.
     
    Heaven on Earth-Azalea, oregon
                                                    A Christian truck stop with plate sized cinnamon rolls and other baked goods. The regular meals are not special but the baked goods are great.
     
    The Wild Goose-Ashland, Or
                                        Marionberry muffins and fried oysters are my favorites. An artsy truck stop cafe of fairly high quality in an artsy fun town.
     
    Mt Shasta, California- There are anumber of places along the main drag that serve good exxpresso. Lots of new age vibe in town, unlike nearby Weed.
     
    The Olive pit- Corning, California.
                                                  Sells olives and will ship anywhere. Free samples and worth stopping to see all the different olives available.

    Roseburg, OR There is a motel with a windmill.
     
    Inside there is a bakery with incredible marionberry scones.
     
    I forgot about that if anyone else is making the trip.

    YOU HAVE TO STOP AT HEAVEN ON EARTH EXIT 86 IN OREGON!!!!!!!!
     
    They are open 24 hours and they have FANTASTIC food! Cinnamon Rolls as big as your head (NO exaggeration), they make their own jams and apple butter, and GREAT prices!
