I could tell you EXACTLY where all the McDonalds and El Pollo Locos are, but what about nice restaurants?
As far as fine dining goes, here in Riverside I have been to Duane's (which by the way is the Inland Empires only AAA Four Diamond awarded restaurant), Mario's, The Mission Inn Restaurant, Olio Ristorante, Cafe Sevilla, and countless others. I recommend all of these restaurants.
Duane’s is interesting because you can expect to pay ~35-60 dollars per plate not including drinks or sides.
But it is a nice atmosphere.
I frequent Don Jos?s, El Torrito, the Olive Garden and many more here in Riverside, but I was curious to see if there are any smaller nice restaurants here in the IE. Real secret type places, not real well known, but with a candle-lit atmosphere and good food?
