Being the geek that I am, I signed up yesterday to preview the new Google Maps.
Today I got my invitation, so I quickly checked it out.
While going through the tour of the new web app, I decided to search for “Breweries, San Bernardino County,” since I’ve been working on a map of Southern California breweries for our sister blog, Beer Goggles.
While searching, I found a new brewery…thank you Google Maps!
The colorful and ubiquitous mall and county fair food vendor known as Hot Dog on a Stick is escaping the food court.
Last summer, the chain opened its a small drive-thru in West Jordan, Utah, its first.
This summer, it’s opening its first California drive-thru…right here in the Inland Empire!
First, there was à la minute.
Then came Sub Zero Ice Cream & Yogurt.
Coming soon is [N7] Creamery.
It’s the latest Inland Empire ice creamery to use liquid nitrogen in the creation of its frozen desserts.
The former Tasty Goody Chinese Fast Food at 601 E. Foothill Blvd., Rialto, which late last year became Ajuberto’s Mexican Food, has changed hands yet again.
It’s been replaced by another Mexican place, Aldo’s Fresh Mexican Food.
Rounds Premium Burgers has been in the Inland Empire before…as a food truck.
Now it’s in the Inland Empire…as a restaurant.
Rounds Premium Burgers (the restaurant) opened up a couple of months back at 885 S. Indian Hill Blvd., just south of the 10 Freeway, but its ribbon-cutting ceremony was just held last week.
On Facebook this morning, the fine folks at Baker’s Drive-Thru posted that they are now hiring for the chain’s soon-to-open Riverside location.
Prospective employees should apply in person at the future location, 10255 Magnolia Ave., a former Wendy’s.
Applications are taken from 9 to 11 a.m. and 2 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Apparently, Southern California residents had little appetite for the Portuguese-influenced Australian chicken sandwich restaurant, Oporto.
The franchise owner of the three U.S. locations of the Aussie chain — which opened in 2011 — is converting them to Feisty Chicken & Grill.
The refashioned restaurants will open at 11 a.m. Sunday (April 7).
Ontario’s Panda Inn, which has been in business 20 years, was closed for several weeks while undergoing a remodeling.
The restaurant reopened today (March 28) with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, complete with lion dancers.
The chain is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, with the Pasadena location having opened in 1973.
The Ontario Panda Inn is at 3223 E. Centrelake Drive.
Head to Steak ‘n Shake’s store locator and type in any Inland Empire zip code.
The closest location will be 9777 Las Vegas Blvd. South (inside the South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa).
That will soon change.
We spotted this on their website a while back, but it’s finally a reality…Sub Zero Ice Cream is opening in Rancho Cucamonga!
This is the chain’s sixth California location, but its first in the Inland Empire.
But it’s not our first liquid-nitrogen ice cream shop.
The shop, 10590 Town Center Drive, Suite 170, will open
Monday (March 18) Wednesday (March 20) eventually.
