I'll be in Ontario for the weekend and I need to know where to chow! Please save me from starving all weekend.

Any recommendations? I'm staying at the Marriott.

Thanks in advance.

    Chik Fil-A across from the Ontario Mills mall.

    Of course, this is only a novelty on the west coast, so you may not think it's anything special.

      I had a decent dinner a couple months ago at the Market Broiler -- located at the Ontario Mills Mall. I recall fresh oysters and I ordered the sea bass - which was good as well. (recommended from the waiter).

          These are pretty pathetic suggestions. Mine won't be much better though.

          Victoria Gardens is only a few miles up I-15. It has a Yardhouse Brewpub. Hundreds of beers on tap and I think the food is decent.

            There are a few decent places out in the boonies if you know where to look. Service comes and goes, but the food is always well priced and decent:

            Tropical Mexico
            1371 S East End Ave
            Pomona, CA 91766
            (909) 623-7573

            BRASSERIE ASTUCE

            Pomona, CA 91767
            909-621-4954

            Or for the "college town" feel you can always go to Claremont and try the Press or Hero's for burgers.
