For all the recessionistas out there (and you know who you are), Dickey’s Barbecue Pit
in Rancho Cucamonga is offering $1 sandwiches from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. tomorrow. The eatery
on Haven and Fourth (actually, it’s Trademark but we’ll say Fourth) is
marking it’s 68th year since opening its first location in Dallas.
You can only get two sandwiches, that’s the limit.
The inaugural “Smokin’ It So-Cal Style” EGGfest is heading to Upland’s Cable Airport (1749 W.13th Street) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, September 19th.
What’s an EGGfest?
An EGGfest is an barbecue social event that showcases the Big Green Egg, billed as the “world’s best grill and smoker.”
The Big Green Egg is a ceramic cooker designed after 3,000-year-old Japanese “kamado” cooking pots.
EGGfest events, which are held throughout the country, are a chance for Big Green Egg owners to share food, recipes and techniques and to allow prospective owners and others to experience the Egg firsthand. Continue reading →
the barbecue eatery on 11470 Fourth St. in Rancho Cucamonga, is marking the chain’s 15th
anniversary this Monday (August 31 — the Redlands location is also participating Monday) by giving special treatment for anyone named
David, Dave or Davy. Dudes with this special name will get a free

Monday will bring us a new barbecue restaurant in Rancho Cucamonga: Joey’s. This joint already has locations in Pomona, Upland and Chino. It’ll be the fifth eatery dedicated to barbecue, following Red Hill,Lucille’s, Dickey’s and Famous Dave’s. (Am I missing any?)
Five barbecue restaurants, with three new ones in the last year … that’s impressive. It’s like the new frozen yogurt.
on Foothill Boulevard near Klusman, sits on what I believe to be a
stretch with the best restaurants in the city. Victoria Gardens fans
might vehemently object, but Route 66 between Vineyard and Archibald is
home to some pretty awesome restaurants, especially if you’re like me,
constantly hungry and poor. Coffee Klatch, In & Out, Pho Ha, Taco Hut, The Deli and Felipe’s are all outstanding. Maybe Joey’s can soon join that list.
John has told you his tale of Mill Creek Cattle Co., and I shall now share with you my own experiences with this legendary place of flavor, and, most certainly, meat.
My apologies to my vegetarian and vegan friends in advance, I’m going to wax carnivore for a moment.
As the name implies, Mill Creek Cattle Co. is true to form in both food and decor. Stuffed deer heads on the wall are a testament to the fact that MEAT is served here, not quivering blocks of pale tofu and the like. You want meat? You’re gonna get meat. The rustic cowboy and indian art on the wall says so, too. This is BBQ. This is WESTERN. Continue reading →
