San Bernardino ranked as one of the worst cities for foodies — again

Here we go again.

Back in 2013, a real estate website, Movoto, compiled a list of “America’s Worst Cities for Food Lovers,” and San Bernardino landed at the top of the list.

  • Colton: 834 W. Valley Blvd.; 1010 E. Washington St.
  • Loma Linda: 24898 Redlands Blvd.

Requiem for Jason’s Deli

A moment of silence, please.

The Riverside Jason’s Deli has closed.

We were big fans of the restaurant, and appreciated its strive to use ingredients free of high-fructose corn syrup and artificial flavors and colors. Oh, and the free ice cream. In fact, we even named it a Dine 909 favorite.

However, I can’t help but feel that the location was doomed from the start.
