If you are driving between the SF and LA, avoid it during the holiday. But if you can't avoid it, stop at Andersen's. The food is good, the service is quick and polite, and the bill won't shock you.

We had car problems and needed to wait out the storm, and stopped at a local hotel... Our trip started with a trip to Las Vegas for 4 days. This visit at Pea Soup Anderson's saved an otherwise horrible vacation... Not one good dining experience in Las Vegas! I will be talking about the great food here, for a long... More

Anyone driving up or down I-5 goes by Pea Soup Andersen's. Sitting out in the middle of 'nowhere' it's easily taken for granted. Not being a fan of pea soup I must admit that I had low expectations. Little did I know how wrong I was. I first noticed that for 7:00 pm it was still busy. Curious. I ordered... More

We went on New Years eve but were still able to get a table quickly. The woman in the bar served a good drink quickly. The restaurant always serves good food with fine servers at a resonable cost.

This place has been around for years and offers travelers a break from driving. It offers delicious home cooking for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with Pea Soup as it's specialty of course. Baked goods are also available, as well as their famous soft cheese and toasts to go. The gift shop is a pleasant place to browse while waiting for... More

Heading back from a big storm from Sacramento, and getting hungry we decided to give their place a try. Been to others in Carlsbad (now closed) and Buellton before. Anyway, wife and I decided to go for the breakfast special and if you like pancakes it's "all you can eat". Also, comes with their special pea soup, eggs and bacon... More

On a long drive on the 5? Then stop at Andersen's Pea Soup in Santa Nella, Ca. It's a bit campy, the furniture is a bit dated, but there is a nice ambience to the place. Not only is there a restaurant, but a gift shop too. The food there is very good; especially, the split pea soup. I have... More

We always try to stop at Anderson's on I-5 or on 101 in Beuelton. The soup is always good. The "Traveler's Special" is great if you don't want a heavy meal. However....the restaurants needs some updating. We are a retired couple. These restaurants have not changed in 40 years!!! The decor is right out of the 1960's or earlier. If... More

Nice service. Excellent California omelet and, of course, super slit pea soup!!! Salad nice and crisp.
