I'd add that the nearby stretch of Hwy 1 between Leggett and the coast is the jewel in the crown of the PCH].

For those of you on your two-ton cruisers, getting to Corning is a dream.
It's hot, straight, hot, flat, hot, interstate, and hot. None of those pesky turns. Nonetheless, it's one of my favorite stretches of I5.
Very reasonable prices, small town atmosphere. Italian specialties along with the biggest breakfast in SoCal since the demise of Belisle's down the street from Disneyland It has been done, but you really can't. The thing is that the huge portions aren't a gimmick like those places with the twelve pound steak that give it to you if you can eat it all in one week or whatever. It's just how much they can get on the plate and the girls can still barely lift it. I knew the phone number without looking it up, ok?
What does that tell you? Aside from being the only place for a disturbingly measurable number of miles, the motel and restaurant strives to be more than just an "any port in the storm" location in the desert.
The food in the restaurant is good and plentiful, served from a blending of traditional American and Southwestern fare. The bar is well stocked for tired and bunking-in travelers and the breakfasts are served fresh, hot, fast and piled on. It's a great place to pack in for the night and freshen up for the morning's traveling.
This is a ride destination, there is no good riding going or coming, but it is a Landmark. Situated near the Beginning of Interstate 40 in Barstow. It is not to be missed if you are in the area. BeeBop music, burgers and pizza, waitresses dressin in period garb. Also has gift shop. Near there is Calico Ghost Town on the other side of the interstate, worth a visit if you are near there.
Tangy sauce and great meat. The sides are pretty darn good too! I miss Phil's Cioppino Italian seafood stew so much I order it shipped frozen to Missouri every once in a while they have an online shop too. Almost as good as being there. And the calamari filets - oh - oh - don't get me started. This is as good as seafood gets. The roads REAL close aren't great, but it is just off the Pacifc Coast Highway, and half an hour north or south will get you into some world class riding.
If you're riding in Monterey and looking for great seafood, head a few minutes north to Moss Landing and try Phil's. It will be a memorable meal. The classic LA hot dog stand. Good food, good price, long lines, and you can say you ate at Pink's!

This is our favorite place to stop and have breakfast or lunch when we ride out to this neck of the woods. Best pulled pork sandwich in the business! Friendly and casual service. Riding down from hwy to the coast, you have to stop in.
I ate there last about 3 weeks ago. First thing I'd like to say is this is a family owned family run business. It has all the benefits and pitfalls associated with a business of this nature. I first started eating there in when I was active duty in the Navy and living in nearby Murphy Canyon. I was impressed with the food then. I've since moved miles away and back again returning in Was I surprised to see this little gem still in business.
No one makes it like the chef in the back of this restaurant! Their vegetables are as fresh as they get, always cooked to perfection. I introduced a friend to this place and he and I eat there now about once a week. As you can tell I'm a pretty big fan of a lot of their menu. The only thing that keeps this place from getting 5 stars is the simple fact that it doesn't provide atmosphere, it's small, the service is slow sometimes as the staff is pretty limited but once they get to know you, well the servers just light up when you walk in.
Another issue is that the bathroom is out and around back of the place. Maybe not everyone's kind of place, but it sure is my kind of place.
After all, it's all about the food! Rock Inn W. This is a bike stop, on the weekends the bike are lined up out front and the live music is loud. Tom and Clare new residents to Key West.
Closed on a condominium in January. Tom is a former Washington DC attorney. We have a mutual friend. He knows her much better than I. Former Ambassador Amy Bondourant. An Ambassador under Clinton and Bush 2. Amy and her husband relocated from Paris to Key West last year. The other couple Kristina and John. I had not intended. However, my stomach was growling. Enjoyed my diet prime rib. Sitting at the bar next to me were Kristina and John.
A vacationing couple from Mays Landing, New Jersey. A very enjoyable couple. We talked of many things. From the beauty of Jersey beaches and their bikini clad women to whatever.
Both at with the FAA. Kristina a research manager with drones. John not at liberty to tell me what he did. Two weeks ago, Terri received favorable news from her cancer hospital in Tampa. She is in remission. Her singing last night exhibited a gusto I attribute to the news. She also danced and pranced about. Terri was a Broadway hoofer as well as singer.
She was singing a love song. Came over and threw her arm around me in what was intended as a hug. My face became imbedded in her left breast.
I could not breathe. She did not know. Bear at Aqua also. Only 10 weeks old. What a good boy! Sat under a chair and ignored everyone. Probably scared seeing all the people. A never before event for him. He was back last night. This time with an oxygen tube in his nostrils. Made no difference, he was whooping it up at the bar having a good time. Tillman a Key Wester for years. His outstanding achievement from my perspective were the years he was married to Hollywood actress Kelly McGillis.
Kelly lived in Key West with Fred and they operated the three restaurants together.
