We found the staff at the Willow Ranch to be pleasant and friendly. The food I would say was average. They did have a good size menu with some unique items. They give generous portions. They were fairly quick and much preferred over fast food....More

Willow Ranch is easy to get to off Highway 5. It's unpretentious, clean, good service, and just fast enough to feel that we weren't delaying our trip, but could relax a bit.

Literally in the middle of nowhere along the freeway but... pretty good food. We were happy to have stopped in for lunch. Try the pulled chicken and pulled pork. Both are good.
