The “historical” (sic) Iron Hog Restaurant and Saloon has re-opened.
The structure was built in 1931 on Route 66 in Oro Grande.
It was featured in the movies Easy Rider, Poker Run and Erin Brockovitch.
Over the past 70-plus years, it has been (among other things), a biker bar, a strip club and a farm equipment sales office.
Now they’re serving up steaks and barbecue dinners. They have a vintage ladder fire truck and other memorabilia on display.
I’ve been past the building several times over the years and never really given it a second thought. It’s kind of off the beaten path, though it might make an interesting side trip on the way to Vegas.
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 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
entree with a maximum value of $15. Guys with those names as their
middle names will get entrees half off.
For everyone else,
there’s the “buck-a-bone” special, which is St. Louis-style ribs for $1
per bone with any entree purchase. There’s also $3 draft domestic beers
Monday through Thursday. These specials are good 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
restaurant opened its first location in Hayward, Wisc. in 1994 and
opened in Rancho last summer. There are now 175 locations across the
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.
