It’s sort of strange, we admit, but somehow the coverage of the two missing skiers who were rescued yesterday has got us thinking about skiing and how fun it is and how we don’t go nearly enough. And that got us thinking about what we eat on the way to and from Lake Tahoe. And that got us thinking about this series that ran in the San Francisco Chronicle a million years ago called “The Road To Tahoe,” all about the restaurants lining Highways 50 and 80. So we thought we’d link those here.
Now, around the MPSF office, we think the better roadside restaurants are determined by their bigger signs. This is especially evident driving through Vacaville. However, there are some spots with low signage that still boast good eats. The Chron covered some in its series, but these articles are about seven years old, so we’d encourage readers with any knew knowledge to chime in with updates.
