Help! I've moved the the I.E.!!

Any recomendations for NON CHAIN restaurants in the Inland Empire area?? We have family coming and have not found the hidden "gems" for dining. Think Claremont / Chino Hills / Rancho Cucamonga area but if it's worth it we will drive further..... just not west =(

    1. About half, (maybe less if you aren't interested in driving at all) of this thread will apply to your general IE needs:

          Great link - thanks! Maybe there's hope after all????

        2. Suggest you use "search this board" to search nearby communities. "Redlands" will return a few useful threads, for example.

          I have to laugh at carter's gallows humor because his would have been my first response. I left the IE 40 years ago and don't miss it a bit.

          1. My sister lives in Chino Hills - the only non chain hidden gems you are going to find are usually Asian and in and around Colima. Try New Garden if you like jjam bong (spicy seafood noodle soup) and jah jjang mein (noodles in brown meat veggie sauce). They also have good regular Chinese food items on the menu.
