Inland Empire is great compared to Victorville!!

Any one know of any restaurants in the Victorville/Apple Valley area that have somewhat edible food?! We have been to Mama Carpino's which is a family style restaurant and has good pizza. Other than that, we have not found anything...

        Thanks so much for the recommendations.

          I had dinner at Go Bangkok last week - the flavors are mild, as might be expected, but tasted authentic. Four diners at a table near us were speaking in Thai, which was a good sign. Service was slightly slow but friendly. No alcohol, though.

        2. Lily's in Midway Shopping Center, over by Costco (the omelets, the loose tea in a china pot, haven't tried the cakes but they look incredible)
          Mimi's in restaurant row, west side of the freeway, south of Bear Valley Road (the butternut squash ravioli and the bread pudding, the lamb shanks...never had a bad meal there)
          I can't remember the name, but there's a Thai place on the east side of Hesperia Road about 50 yards south of Bear Valley Road
          Soya Sushi, in the Vons's lot at Bear Valley and Hesperia Roads
          The Mexican place at the west end of the Ralph's lot across from Walmart on Hwy 18, in north Apple Valley
          Mollie's at Second and Bear Valley in Hesperia
          For coffee and pastry, It's A Grind, at Apple Valley and Bear Valley Roads, next to Lowe's (but don't try the Japanese place next door....tea bags and sucky service)

          1. Good restaurants:

            1. Arabic- A La Din- best in town; east of Palmdale Road. Everything is made to order
            2. Tokyo Sushi best sushi-7th St.
            3. Tatsuki best Sukiayaki and lunch specials. One of the original Japanese restaurants (Japanese owned) ; reasonable sushi prices.

              Apologies for bumping a long-dead thread, but I thought I'd note that the restaurant identified as "A La Din" is actually called Ala' Al-Deen; phonetically similar, but different enough in terms of spelling that Google couldn't figure it out.

              Ala' Al-Deen
              14303 7th St
              Victorville, CA 92395

            2. Baja Taco 13738 Bear Valley Rd in the Stater Bros Shopping center. Small place with great taco's, Burritos. Good prices too.
