San Dimas area
Any Chow-worthy places in and around San Dimas? I know Petrillos is in Glendora.
Anything else anybody recommends? All types of foods are welcome
Funny you should ask. I was at the TJ's at San Dimas last week and noticed that they have a Philly's Best and Senior Baja (Taco Nazo split off) in the same plaza next door to each other.
Haven't tried either but both had been written up in chowhound quite a bit. I liked the shrimp and the potato tacos better than the original fish at the Taco Nazo in La Habra.
Otherwise I don't think there's anything chow worthy in San Dimas.
In the neighboring Azusa there is a Carvel ice cream, and the Donut Man at Glendora (others raved about their Strawberry donut, I didn't like but judge for yourself).
In San Dimas proper, not too much other than what's already been mentioned. Pozetto is pretty good for Italian although they have a limited menu. Just down the street (east on Bonita) is Old Town La Verne nestled up against the college. In a two-block stretch you have Warehouse Pizza, very good but cash only; T. Phillips a decent steak place with an outstanding selection of beer (a large beer there is over 22 oz.); Miss Donut and Bagel; Coffeberry for an outstanding coffee bar with a very good Chinese restaurant next door; Aoki is a nice sit-down Japanese place with the tiny hole-in-the-wall Bowl House next door for cheap and delicious teriyaki bowls; Caffe Allegro, a cramped but very good Italian restaurant; and just around the corner on Arrow and E St. is El Merandero for very good Mexican.
