It’s Sundowners Family Restaurants’ 34th anniversary today (November 28), and the small, local chain is celebrating by offering a top sirloin steak dinner for just 1¢ — with the purchase of a top sirloin steak dinner for $7.99.
The dinners include Sundowner toast and a choice of baked potato, fried rice, French fries or mashed potatoes and gravy.
Where else but Sundowners can you get
two steak dinners at the insanely cheap price at $8?
Fontana’s Tio’s Mexican Grill, 16953 Sierra Lakes Parkway, just went upscale with the addition of Tio’s Grille & Cantina next door.
The new place — which had its grand opening on Saturday — looks amazing!
It’s truly a family affair, as the owners’ niece, who operates
designstiles, created the look.
You can check out the pics (from

Yes, corn ice cream is a thing. So is avocado ice cream. Spinach, too.
And thanks to KTLA’s
Chris Burrous — who brought Fontana’s 13 Ice Cream onto our radar when he mentioned that he recently filmed a segment there — we’ve tried them all.

Last month, reader Lucy
emailed us to let us know the Shrimp House — in the San Gabriel Valley (originally El Monte, now Arcadia) since 1960 — was opening a location in Fontana.
I just now decided to Google ‘Shrimp House Fontana’ to follow up and found some
Yelp reviews…it’s open!
The Let’s Dine Out Show has thought outside the box for its next Grub Club event.

Tibbies Center Stage Theater in Fontana.
Included is a Grub Club exclusive meal and a matinee performance of
“Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.”
At the beginning of the year,
we got excited when we found out that Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers would be adding another Inland Empire location, taking over a former Wienerschnitzel in north Fontana.
got confirmation from Freddy’s folks.

The future location eventually disappeared from the locator map on Freddy’s website.
We drove by occasionally just to check to see if any construction had been done on the location. Sadly, no construction ever took place.
