Redlands’ Taco Shack, 510 E. State St., is hosting a fundraiser for the Redlands Police Department’s narcotics K-9 unit beginning Monday (August 11) and ending August 30.
As part of the fundraiser, guests can make a donation and have their names placed on the walls of the restaurant.
The fundraiser will culminate with an event beginning at noon on August 30, during which Police Chief Mark A. Garcia will volunteer in a demonstration as the department’s patrol dog “takes a bite out of crime.”
The headline says it all.
Jack in the Box is introducing two new breakfast burritos and its version of Cronuts today (August 7).
The two breakfast burritos both start with eggs, cheddar and pepper jack cheeses.

A press release notes that they’re the largest burritos the chain has ever offered.
Here at Dine 909 we like free, and we also like fish and chips, which is why we’ll likely be standing in line at Long John Silver’s sometime between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday (August 2).

It’s been a roller coaster month for the owners of Rialto’s El Kiosco Mexican Restaurant.
The restaurant closed late last month when the restaurant’s owners were unable to come to a new lease agreement with the property owners. It appeared that the Morden family would be vacating the spot in Rialto where they’ve operated their restaurant for 25 years and transferring their business to their Redlands location, El Kiosco Express.
The good news is they were finally able to come to an agreement with the property owners and have signed a new three-year lease for the Rialto location.

When Golden Corral returned to the state, it first showed up in Hesperia.
California’s first Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers was built in Victorville.
The first civilian-accessible Dunkin’ Donuts in the chain’s recent return to California was in Barstow.
