Coming from Los Angeles - what does Stockton (and environs, Modesto, Lodi, maybe even Sacramento) have that I simply can't get at home?

Great Basque food! Wool Growers is well worth the short trip off of the 5 to Los Banos (just south of Stockton). They serve a family style lunch with a parade of courses that includes, at least when I went in March 2012, bread & butter, soup, salad, beans, lamb stew, french fries and your choice of lamb chops (2), pork chops (2), a lamb shank or chicken. Wine also comes with the lunch as well as ice cream. The food just kept coming out, course after course. I am not normally a huge fan of lamb but all of the lamb dishes were amazing. It was 16 per person & cash only. I am definitely going back the next time I take the 5.

I would also recommend the following stops:
- La Costa Taqueria (Tracy, CA)
- Tita's Pupuseria (Buttonwillow, CA)
- Squeeze Inn (Sacramento)
