Having eaten here a handful of times... it's certainly more than enough for a lifetime.
The occasion: small b'day dinner (only 3 of us) -- and I believe I can sway the dining spot, if I can figure out an alternative location.
Closer east (centered around Azusa/Glendora) is a plus. Definitely no Mexican - and my Joey's BBQ idea got shot down already. Trekking to Pasadena was also vetoed (too far west).
I looked up reviews for the area and saw good things about Sycamore Inn -- but have a feeling that will get vetoed as being too far east.
Done the Golden Spur, done Coco Palms (yuck), done Pinnacle Peak... none of those are remotely appealing....
...I'm blanking out - is there anything else? What am I left with... Claremont?? Is that my remaining option? And, if so - where? I'm not familiar with that area at all. ...why do I have a feeling I'm going to the mining co......
Any ideas are appreciated!
