Boston’s Restaurant and Sports Bar opening in north Fontana

Boston's FontanaBoston’s Restaurant and Sports Bar doesn’t have a very big footprint in California.

In fact, there are just two locations: Rancho Cucamonga and Long Beach.

That number is about to increase 50%, as the chain is soon to open in north Fontana, just north of the 210 Freeway at Sierra Avenue.

We watched over the last few years as construction was sporadically done on the location.

We tried to guess what it was going to be, based on the architecture of the building.

For a while we were sure it was going to be an Outback Steakhouse.

Then we thought it looked a little more like a Famous Dave’s.

Then, a couple of weeks ago we noticed a Boston’s banner on the side of the building.

What we didn’t realize is that the chain had created a Facebook page for the location way back in May.

If you’re looking for a job, unfortunately they’re already done hiring for the new location and training is starting this month.

They haven’t set an opening date, but I’m suspecting it’ll be late July/early August, or as a post on the Facebook page says: “Check back mid-late summer.”

For updates, “Like” the new location on Facebook.

The new Boston’s is at 16927 Sierra Lakes Parkway in Fontana.

Update: According to this Facebook post, the restaurant is still accepting applications, and is hoping to open July 25 August 5.

Scratch that: They’ve run into some “minor setbacks” at the location and are now looking at a September opening. Good things come to those who wait, right?

The final word: It’s open! After getting a heads-up from a reader that they would open today (September 4), drove by and saw balloons around the patio area. Nice big restaurant and bar area! Plus the AC was cranked up to 11…perfect time to go and escape the heat!
