Poor north Rialto. Sure, you’ve got an In-N-Out Burger and a Chipotle Mexican Grill now, but what if you’re eating in?
You used to be able to shop at fresh & easy, but we all know how that turned out.
Now the only supermarket north of Base Line in the city — Ralph’s — has announced it’s closing in less than a month.

As I was glancing through the latest Rialto city administrator update (you can read it yourself here), something caught my attention.
A new shopping center, anchored by “Smart and Final Express” (likely a Smart & Final — Extra!) and a Dollar Tree, is also scheduled to have a “Hawaiian Ono” (Ono Hawaiian BBQ, perhaps?) and a drive-thru Dunkin’ Donuts!
That would bring the total number of Inland Empire locations to four.

Tonight (August 4) is National Night Out and while different cities celebrate in different ways, in my opinion, Rialto is doing it right.
Along with the bounce houses and the musical performances, the city has again scheduled food trucks for the event.
This year’s truck lineup includes the Greasy Wiener, the Grilled Cheese Truck, Where’s the Fire Gourmet Pizza, Suite 106 Cupcakery, Hang 10 Tacos and Drive Me Cookie.
Rialto’s National Night Out event is set for 5 to 8:30 p.m. at the Civic Center, bounded by First Street and Rialto Avenue, and Willow and Palm avenues.
For more information, visit the event’s Facebook page.
There’s been quite a bit of speculation about that plot of land on Riverside Avenue just south of the 210 Freeway in north Rialto where Fire Station 202 used to be and is currently home to the city’s In-N-Out Burger.
When the project was announced back in 2010, we were sure one of the tenants was going to be In-N-Out, but it was only going to take up one of the plot’s three acres.
In 2011, the plan was to use the other two acres for another fast-food outlet and a full-service restaurant.
Miguel’s Jr. was, for a long time, expected to be the other fast-food outlet.
All three restaurants were expected to be open by the end of that year. That didn’t happen.

It’s been a roller coaster month for the owners of Rialto’s El Kiosco Mexican Restaurant.
The restaurant closed late last month when the restaurant’s owners were unable to come to a new lease agreement with the property owners. It appeared that the Morden family would be vacating the spot in Rialto where they’ve operated their restaurant for 25 years and transferring their business to their Redlands location, El Kiosco Express.
The good news is they were finally able to come to an agreement with the property owners and have signed a new three-year lease for the Rialto location.
