Harris Ranch–The Best Lunch of my Lifetime

A few hours into our roadtrip from LA to Napa, we reach The Harris Ranch Restaurant. Located in the middle of America’s breadbasket, which produces a large portion of our food source.

It’s not just a lunch spot but a resort destination. We loved the decorations in the main building, including this gorgeous chandelier.

I wish we were going home and could bring the fresh cut meat. Alas, we were enroute to Napa. Their country store was adorable. Only drawback, they had jams you could get at any country store. I prefer when destinations have things only specific to that region.

I love me some country music and some country decor. This chair is awesome.

The restaurant had comfy booths and kitchy decor.

I got the pot roast with mashed potatoes and fresh sweet corn. OMG. The food was sooooo fresh. I wish I lived on a farm and could eat like this everyday. The corn didn’t need butter–it was so tasty and sweet on its own. The carrots were yummie. The meat so tender. The potatoes dear God the potatoes.

And the cheddar biscuits. Sigh. I long for them.

This is what the resort looked like from the parking lot. There were several other building off to the side and behind the main building.

    Food looked and sounded wonderful but I have to disagree about that chair, and I love things that are so bad they’re good, but the chair is so bad, it’s bad ๐Ÿ˜‰
