Changes on Upland’s restaurant row

Taking Foothill Boulevard east the other day from Claremont, I noticed a few changes among Upland’s restaurant lineup:

* Philly’s Best has gone under, a display of unbrotherly love for cheesesteak fans. That’s apparently a tough corner; the only previous occupant of that side of the building, B-Man’s Teriyaki, didn’t last as long as it should have either.

* Cherry on Top is coming to the former Winchell’s. It’s either ice cream or frozen yogurt, I couldn’t tell. I kept getting green lights.

* The former Country Buffet (was that the name?) has gone through several names as a teppan grill and sushi bar. It’s now Mora.

* East of Euclid, Sizzler is closed, replaced by an almost-identical operation. New name: Sizzlin. The two Zs are in red letters, just like Sizzler. “Steak-Seafood-Grill,” the overline reads.

Some good, some bad, but on balance, Upland hasn’t lost its sizzle.

    In regards to your drive through restaurant row going east from Claremont, if you are referring to the restaurant across from Upland High “The former Country Buffet” (was that the name?) has gone through several names as a teppan grill and sushi bar. It’s now Mora. It was called King’s Table buffet and was not very good.

    [Like everything else, King’s Table predates me. But even this relative newcomer has seen multiple eateries at that corner. — DA]
