Dinner in Glendora pre- Donut man?
My husband refuses to drive to Glendora for donuts. Me, I can see perfect logic in it, but he cannot. So, is there an amazing place for dinner there, too? WE had Italian recently, so anything BUT would be good.
I'm with you. I'd head straight for Donut Man and skip dinner. After all, the strawberry donut is really a meal in itself.

On my Donut Man runs from Marina Del Rey, I usually have lunch/dinner at Dino's Burgers, about 5 miles west of Donut Man. Dino's Burgers' half Chicken Plate is LEGENDARY -- I usually eat 2 chicken plates.

Another alternative is a pastrami sandwich at The Hat. It's on Route 66 about a mile west of Donut Man.

Correction: Dino's Burgers Azusa's phone numbers both start with an "8," not a "6"
Dino's Burgers Azusa
(626) 812 6400
And according to Mapquest, Dino's Burgers is 5.86 miles South and West of Donut Man.
To Brussels Sprout: The only thing I've ordered at Dino's is the Half Chicken Plate -- it's only $5.50 and it's addicting. But some Chowhounds have raved about Dino's Pastrami Sandwich. In my opinion, order the Half Chicken Plate and you won't ever order anything else. Hint: order the Half Chicken Plate and ask for extra "Juice."
Check out this review of Dino's Bugers Azusa by Food Blogger and Chowhound member Abby ("This truly was the most amazing chicken dish I ever had."):
First thing--strong on posting at 1:00am on donuts.
Secondly--could you describe the chocolate strawberry donut? Was it a chocolate cake donut with strawberry frosting? Strawberry cake donut with chocolate frosting?
Or dare I dream? The classic strawberry stuffed donut, and chocolate is involved somehow?
I know I'm in a small, very small minority here but comparing the pastrami at The Hat vs. Langer's is more akin to comparing a Big Mac that has been sitting around for an hour or two to the Office Burger (or sub your fave upscale burger here)!!!
As far as what to eat before Donut Man, I hit Zelo's a couple of times and liked it but my lads did not like it at all so I almost always go to one of my favorite Chinese places, usually Sichuan, more recently Hunan followed by either Donut Man or Fosselman's! They both help put out the fire!!!

re: Brussels Sprout
In Arcadia, there's the famous Din Tai Fung dumpling restaurant and Change's Garden. Expect a wait a wait at Din Tai Fung if you come during peak dining hours on the weekends. I think Zelo's is worth a try. I think to think of anywhere you could stop by en route to Glendora and could only think of places in Old Town Monrovia. There's Cafe Massilia, a small French place. My sister and I had a pleasant dinner there. The Peach Cafe gets recommended on here for lunch and breakfast, but last I checked they do dinners on Friday nights. In the same area, there's Merengue, a Cuban bakery very reminiscint of Porto's.
