Any tips on reasonably priced MUST EAT HERE joints on CA coast

We're having a great vacation in Santa Barbara (visiting relatives) and are planning on heading up the coast for several days, going as far north as Ferndale. We'll spend a few days in San Fran, and hope to hit the Redwood Forest, and Mendocino (among other places). Any recommendations for great (but not too pricey) foodie stops? Thanks in advance!
