Chipotle, Jersey Mike’s Subs, Wing Stop and Major Brain Freeze Yogurt coming to north Rialto

Rialto 1There’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.
