In 1975, Rosina Gallardo, a native of Zacatecas, Mexico, opened her first Amapola Rico Taco. Initially a drive-in, the eatery has since transformed into five restaurants with indoor seating and drive-thru windows. Rosina's dedication to popular and lesser-known Mexican flavors, however, remains unchanged. She fills burritos and soft-shell tacos with not only classic meats such as steak and pork, but also with goat, carne asada, and chicharr?n. Other Mexican staples such as cheese enchiladas and breakfast platters of huevos rancheros round out the menu.
Nestled at the base of the San Bernardino Mountains, Le Rendez-Vous Restaurant's scenic locale certainly lends the restaurant the romantic edge. But Le Rendez-Vous still strives to match its idyllic surroundings with an equally picturesque dining room?glittering chandeliers glint off dark wooden flourishes, and crisp white tablecloths furnish coy games of peek-a-boo. Once dining companions have honed in on an award-winning entree from the French-inspired menu, servers can happily recommend wine pairings such as chenin blanc, gew?rztraminer, and Bordeaux.
As its name implies, Chow Pho Noodle & Grill's flagship dish is pho—a savory, full-flavored soup made of rice noodles, fresh veggies and basil, and morsels of tender chicken, rib eye, and beef brisket. In addition to this treasured Southeast Asian dish, Chow Pho Noodle & Grill serves up bubbling hot pots full of glass noodles, tofu, and eggplant; stir-fried baby bok choy smothered in garlic sauce; and appetizers of crispy spring rolls and zesty fried chicken wings.
After 30 years in the business, the sandwich-fixing masters at Ray's Downtown Deli still satiate ravenous appetites with custom sandwiches, grilled burgers, and house-made soups and salads. Patrons engineer their ideal sandwich from an extensive list of fresh ingredients, or choose one of the deli's specialty sammies, including the Downtown deli roast beef classic, a generous portion of tender meat tucked beneath a green chili and served on an onion bun bound blissfully together with swiss and cheddar cheeses ($6.25), or the turkey bacon club, which crowns a poultry pile with smoky bacon and provolone cheese ($6.25). On the hot menu, juicy burgers and chicken sandwiches rub delectable elbows with daily specials ($6.42+), including meatloaf and veggies lounging in a pool of gravy on a creamy mashed-potato raft on Thursday, and an italian-sausage grinder that gives Tuesday new meaning alongside a supporting cast of house-made salad, pickle, and a small drink. Evenings after 5 p.m., the sounds of live bands and DJs permeate the bar-like atmosphere at Ray's Downtown Deli, leaving diners free to chew without whistling their own theme music through rye-bread-dusted lips.
