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...

    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

      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)
