Fiesty Chicken down for the count

FeistyFeisty Chicken & Grill, with locations in Rancho Cucamonga, Ontario and Glendora, has apparently flown the coop.

I first noticed that the Glendora location was closed several weeks ago. A sign posted in the window indicated they were remodeling and would reopen soon.

Never a good sign.

Last week I drove by the Rancho Cucamonga location. Same thing.

This week I checked on the Ontario location and found the sign you see above. No work was actively going on inside the restaurant.

I’m not holding my breath.

We spotted its job announcements on Craigslist a while back, but didn’t realize the Luxe Buffet in Ontario had actually opened until we heard an ad on the radio the other day.

Yelp reviews are mixed.

Along with the typical Chinese buffet items, Luxe boasts a Brazilian barbecue, teppanyaki (which sounds more like Mongolian barbecue), sushi and sashimi and gelato.
