Making the trip on Highway 5 between Los Angeles and San Francisco? Look no further for a worthy stop: Harris Ranch in Coalinga is the perfect place to stretch your legs, grab a bite, and even spend the night. Located 27 miles north of Kettleman City, Harris Ranch offers accommodations at its modern inn, treats and eats at its country store, and multiple restaurants to enjoy everything from Beef Filet Wellington to oak-smoked baby back ribs.
Harris Ranch Inn is a Hacienda-style resort that offers a collection of rooms and suites, an Olympic-style pool, three outdoor hot tubs, a gym, and balcony views of the fertile Central Valley.
Need a hostess gift before you reach your final destination? The Harris Ranch Country Store combines a Western general store with fresh baked breads and pastries, handcrafted gifts, specialty housewares, and Harris Ranch beef, cut fresh at the meat counter and packed on ice for your trip. (Harris Ranch is the largest beef producer in California.)
Of course, any stop to Harris Ranch would be incomplete without enjoying something cooked on a grill or covered in barbeque sauce. Visit the family-friendly Ranch House for a sit-down breakfast, lunch, or dinner—or head over to the fine-dining Steakhouse for an indulgent porterhouse. If you want to get back on the road in a hurry, Harris Ranch’s Express BBQ offers fan favorites like smoked brisket and tri-tip in ready-made sandwiches, salads, and plates to enjoy on the go. You can even order online, via the app, before you arrive.
