I’m a trucker and after a long day I stopped in at Blackwell’s. I was tired and hungry and they had a large lot with trucks in it. Inside I found dirty restroom, over priced tourist junk and the most unfriendly staff ever on earth....More

A unique stop on the way to the Central Coast. What makes Blackwell's Corner different than every one else? Is it all the interesting merchandise they carry inside their store? No, but they do carry numerous terrific items that you should check out while filling...More

A real treasure! Handcrafted chocolates, fabulous boysenberry sauce, coffee and snacks, and clean bathrooms. Stop for a good stretch, a photo of yourself with some goofy life-size dolls, and grab some new socks if you, ahem, happen to be freezing because you stepped in a...More

Great food at the diner. Delicious local fruits, nuts, candies, and amazing homemade fudge. Lets face it, you needed to use the bathroom anyway, so this is the perfect place. If you love pistachios, this place is heaven.

Made a quick stop on way to Vegas. This place could surely use more business. Many of the shelves were empty and inventory very low. We did have their special Breakfast Burritos to go and they were excellent and reasonably priced. Will stop again just...More

You should gas up and use the bathrooms in either Paso Robles or Lost Hills, but this is the best place to stop for the locally grown nuts, and fudge made on site.
