I believe that was the last remaining location for the small chain. It appears that at various times, there were restaurants in Colton, Covina, El Monte and La Mirada.
Construction went fast and furious on the new downtown San Bernardino In-N-Out Burger at 795 W. 5th St., at H Street.
So fast, in fact, that the old location at 190 Bungalow Court, off Second Street, will shut down tonight and the new location will open in the morning.
The new location, as the old one, will open at 10:30 a.m. daily, and close at 1 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and 1:30 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
The new location includes inside seating.
The old-school Denny’s at 510 W. Orange Show Road has been shuttered.
Apparently it’s been closed for weeks. I just noticed this weekend.
It’s a shame. That particular location, despite being a little rough around the edges, was the one I went to most often.
That leaves San Bernardino with “only” three Denny’s: Highland Avenue (at Valencia Avenue), Palm Avenue (at I-215) and Rosewood Drive (off Tippecanoe Avenue).
Guess I’ll have to find another location for my Moons Over My Hammy fix.
However, Wendy reports that Chef Tim is still catering and plans to open in another location.

I’ve been noticing a flurry of construction at the corner of Fifth and H streets in downtown San Bernardino, where the Paradise Motel once stood.
Naturally, I was curious as to what was being built there.
The answer came this week as a sign went up indicating that it was the home of a new In-N-Out Burger.
Construction is moving fast and furious on the new location.
The plan is to move in to the new location n out of the current downtown location, 190 Bungalow Court, a mere three blocks south of the new one. In-N-Out hasn’t set a date for the relocation.
Sad news for fans of Millie’s Restaurant & Bakery.
The Fontana Millie’s, formerly at 17039 Valley Blvd., has closed.
The restaurant has a couple of signs posted inside the front window saying that the location is permanently closed and to visit the Millie’s in Covina, nearly 30 miles away.
That leaves the only Inland Empire Millie’s in Hemet, at 2020 E. Florida Ave.
I have an odd story about Millie’s.
A while back, I cleaned some viruses off my aunt’s computer, and as payment, she asked where I liked to eat so that she could get me some gift certificates.
At the time, I was kind of on a Mimi’s Cafe kick, so that’s what I told her.
She got things a little mixed up and I ended up with gift certificates to Millie’s.
Let’s just say that I got to know the Riverside and Fontana locations for a while.
Of course, they’re both closed now, which makes me a little sad.
Thanks to reader Steve, who emailed us to let us know about the closure.
It appears to have been the last one in the Inland Empire.
At one time, the Cold Stone Creamery competitor had locations in Fontana and Chino Hills, in addition to the one in Rancho Cucamonga, but no more.
The closest location is Woodland Hills.
A reader had emailed me Friday asking if I had known anything of the closure.
I hadn’t, so after searching Yelp and seeing that the restaurant closed sometime at the beginning of the month, I referred it to our Rancho Cucamonga reporter, Wendy Leung, who informed my of David’s post.

Well, it was busy, but no huge line.
Then we decided to swing by Canton Bistro, which is in the same shopping center.
The Asian fusion restaurant had, in the past few months, gone from serving lunch and dinner to just serving dinner to just being open as a nightclub.
Well, its fortunes have fallen further still.
We found a red “illegal to enter” sign posted on the inside of the front doors.
In this recession, restaurants seem to be having a particularly hard time, but I’m sure it didn’t help that another Asian restaurant opened its doors just across the parking lot last year.
I was a frequenter of that Millie’s a while back (before the end of 2009, at least!), after my aunt had given me a ton of Millie’s gift certificates in payment for repairing her computer, so I’m kind of sad to see it go.
However, I’m also a fan of the Original Pancake House, so I’m glad to see it move so close.
It’s the second Inland Empire location for the Original Pancake House. There’s another in Temecula at 41377 Margarita Road, Suite F101.
I’m a little surprised that I haven’t been by that area in over a year to notice the change. I would’ve noticed an Original Pancake House!
Nonetheless, I’m ready to head on over there ASAP to get some breakfast. It’s a shame they close daily at 2 p.m.
Millie’s locations in Fontana (17039 Valley Blvd.) and Hemet (2020 E. Florida Ave.) both appear to still be in business.
