There are many great eats here in Rancho Cucamonga, and it’s hard to just choose a few to taste test. Here are some of our favorites:

  • Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar is a great option for unique and irresistible pairings served in a beautiful environment. If you’re a fan of “surf & turf,” Fleming’s is a must.
  • If quick, tasty, and inventive mediterranean food whets your appetite, be sure to check out Mezza Terranean. Our tip: get the chicken shawarma fries!
  • Got a sweet tooth? Make sure to stop by Baked Dessert Bar to taste a variety of delectable treats.

6. For health & wellness buffs: get a little salty

Visit the Salt Oasis for a relaxing, healthy afternoon. The salt cave is meant to please all of your senses while helping your body detox from exposure to everyday pollutants. If you’ve got a big group, request the larger salt cave, complete with calming waterfall. If there are just a few of you, the salt rooms provide the same aesthetic without the extra space.

Etiwanda Falls is a perfect hike for beginning and intermediate hikers. This hike has amazing views and ends at the falls, making it one of the most popular hikes in the area.
