CAN ANYONE RECOMMEND A RESTAURANT FOR A BUSINESS LUNCH NEAR CLAREMONT CALIFORNIA?! THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
Juanita's, a taco "shack" (though rated A)on Indian Hill Blvd. just south of the 10 freeway, has the best shredded beef tacos and bean and cheese burritos and HOT SAUCE todo el mundo. I went to school in Claremont, 20 + years ago, and anytime I'm near there (like last Saturday!) I will drive way out of my way to go to Juanita's -- it's a local legend. Juanita's Two on Fourth St. just south of the 10 in Ontario, is even better, and it has a drive thru. Yummmmm.

All the pollo dishes are very good; hard to imagine decent Perian cuisine out in Claremont.
102 Harvard Ave.

Jerk Chicken and the crawfish crepes are surprisingly good.
Walter's, on the main street parallel to the campuses, has an eclectic menu and even includes Afghani specialties the owners have contributed. Everyone in your group will find something to please him or her.
My son (who goes to Claremont) and I have compulsively visited every restaurant in the Village (excluding some that are not open for lunch, like Viva Madrid)in the past two years. We have concluded that Harvard Square (Bonita and Harvard) has the best combination of food, price, and service. Nothing wrong with The Press and Walter's but this would be our first choice. Walter's seems to be the most popular place in the Village.
Yanni's on Yale has food that is perhaps more unique than Walter's - handmade old school Greek.
Taco Nazo out on Foothill has been surprisingly good at times and is a good choice if you are in a big hurry.
