Highway 49--Gold Rush Country
Columbia House Restaurant 22738 Main St., (209) 533-3983. After burning to the ground a few years back, this town fixture has been brought back from the dead. It is a lot fresher now, and serves up an extensive menu. Breakfast is available all day. Choose from the basic eggs with a side of delicious meaty bacon, an omelette cooked to order, housemade biscuits and gravy, buttermilk flapjacks, and even the famous Gold Rush-era Hangtown Fry—eggs, oysters, and bacon. Lunch items include soup with cornbread, sandwiches galore (served with housemade chips), and country fried steak. Dinner brings on salad plates and hearty meals with all the trimmings--think pot roast, fried cat fish, and fried chicken.
