With all the restaurants coming and going in Rancho Cucamonga, it’s hard to keep track. Good
thing it’s not just “going,” there are businesses coming, too.
First the sad news. Joey’s BBQ on Foothill Boulevard closed last week. Its Upland, Pomona and Chino locations are unaffected. Robin’s Dono, a Japanese restaurant on Fourth Street across from Ontario Mills, has also closed.
Here’s some good news. Alberto’s
will take over Joey’s BBQ spot. Alberto’s is a chain of taquerias with
more than 40 locations in Southern California. Cuban restaurant Flamingo Palms
is leaving its tiny Archibald Avenue location and moving to the more
prominent Fourth Street, in a space where Camille’s used to be. Flamingo
Palms will be on Archibald for another month. It was mentioned in this space recently that Handel’s, the
popular ice-cream joint in Upland, is opening another shop on Haven
Avenue at the Vons center near the 210 Freeway. Handel’s is expected to
open mid-February or March. Finally Felipe’s on Archibald and Foothill has closed. Stevie Dee’s Diner is expected to take over.
Am I missing anything?
