Coalinga, CA 93210
We’ve driven by this place whenever we’d drive to SF, but never had the chance to stop except maybe for gas. So on the recent trip, I decided that it’d be a good lunch stop on the way back to SoCal.
Yes, Harris Ranch is a real operating ranch. They are known for their beef, and serve it proudly in their restaurants. The website now even sells their meat online. It is also a hotel – it’d be an interesting place to stay. Reminds me of the Madonna Inn in SLO.
Outside the restaurant
Tri-tip being smoked outside
Western-style interior. I think most of the furniture is from real cowhide/cowhair
Cow-horn chair? It’s the first I’ve seen!
Food! First up: watermelon lemonade ($2.95). Yummy! Perfect for a hot summer day. Unlimited refills! Real watermelon juice with lemonade.
BBQ smoked tri-tip panini ($14.95). Pretty sizable portion! It was gooood….
