A newcomer to the Inland Empire, Pancheros Mexican Grill, has opened in Fontana.
Well…Bring Your Own Cup Day is back, and because it’s the brain-freezing beverage’s 50th anniversary this year, it’s being stretched over two days.
MOD Pizza is opening its second Inland Empire location on Saturday (March 12).
The quick-serve pizzeria, which currently has a location in the Mountain Grove shopping center near Redlands, will open at 16391 Sierra Lakes Parkway in Fontana.
Not just to get a delicious sandwich, but because the chain has once again partnered with NHRA to offer vouchers for $7 off advance tickets to the Winternationals.
According to the Tweet below, only 14 seats remain as of Tuesday night.

It only took 40 years, but Miguel’s Jr. is now serving breakfast.
The morning meal is currently available at the chain’s Fontana, Ontario and Galleria at Tyler locations.
On Tuesday (January 23), the chain will begin serving breakfast at its south Corona location, too.
It’s something its customers have been wanting for a long time.
“People would always ask us ‘When are you going to serve breakfast?’ ‘One of these days.’ Well, that day is here,” said co-founder Mary Vasquez at a recent launch celebration.
The last few years, the Corona-based Mexican restaurant had been offering breakfast items during Christmastime at its Galleria at Tyler location, as sort of a test run for when the time was right to begin serving it year-round.
In November, the Fontana location became the first to begin serving breakfast daily.
Miguel’s Jr.’s breakfast menu consists of six burritos and three plates:
- Carne Asada: Grilled steak, eggs, cheddar cheese and chile verde-marinated potatoes. ($8.59)
- Chorizo: Mexican-style sausage, eggs, refried beans and chile verde-marinated potatoes. ($5.99)
- Green Pig: Marinated pork, eggs, cheddar cheese and chile verde-marinated potatoes. ($6.49)
- Machaca: Shredded beef seasoned with tomatoes, bell peppers and onions, eggs and refried beans. ($6.49)
- Spud: Eggs, chile verde-marinated potatoes and cheddar cheese. ($4.99)
- Sunrise: Bacon, eggs, cheddar cheese and chili verde-marinated potatoes. ($5.99)
- Americano: Scrambled eggs, chile verde marinated potatoes, tortillas and choice of bacon, chile verde pork or carne asada. (Bacon $5.99 / Carne asada $8.59 / Chili verde pork $6.49)
- Chorizo: Served with Spanish rice, refried beans and tortillas. ($5.99)
- Machaca: Served with Spanish Rice, refried beans and tortillas. ($6.49)
Breakfast hours are 6 to 11 a.m. Monday through Friday and 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
In celebration of the introduction of the chain-wide breakfast rollout, the chain is hosting a “Pajama Jam Family Morning Out” from 7 to 8 a.m. Saturday (January 30) at the south Corona location, 2320 Compton Ave. Guests who wear their pajamas to the restaurant will receive a Green Pig burrito and coffee for free. They’ll also be giving out T-shirts while quantities last.
In addition, Tuesday through Sunday (January 26 to 31) guests at the south Corona location can receive a free coffee with any breakfast entrée purchase.
To further the celebration, guests that “check-in” at the south Corona location on Facebook and post a message or photo of breakfast support will receive a coupon for a free breakfast burrito valid on their next visit, while supplies last.
The chain will continue to roll out breakfast to another location every two weeks, with all 14 locations expected to be serving breakfast by mid-June. A new location under construction in Riverside will serve breakfast when it opens this summer.
We’re also getting into the celebration. Thanks to the generous folks at Miguel’s Jr., we’ve got five $10 gift cards and five coupons for free breakfast burritos at the south Corona location to give away.
