In today’s Shameless Foodie post, Domestic Diva is venturing a bit further east than usual, to The Heights Restaurant and Bar in Upland!
Why Upland, you may ask? Well, growing up in Rancho Cucamonga, there are a lot of chain restaurants. We have one (or five) of everything you could want, but not a lot of mom-and-pop places. The Heights is owned by the same people behind the classic 50s diner the? Village Grille in the Claremont Village, so you know it has to be good!
I’ve heard good things about the nightlife/bar scene here. So for my 24th birthday, my parents decided to take me out to dinner here.
I like the spot, and especially the view up on the top of the hill in Upland. It was a Monday night, so pretty deserted, and we got a table right away.
We started with the spinach dip and it was AMAZING. I’m very very picky about spinach dip – it’s so easy to screw it up. But I was pleasantly surprised with The Heights? spinach dip (and the homemade pico it comes with) and I had to be careful not to spoil my appetite on it!
For my entree, I ordered the southwest salad. It was HUGE and full of black beans, tomatoes, corn, red onions, cheese and tortilla strips. And the ranch was great. My only complaint is that they didn’t have the greatest selection of craft/draft beer…I ended up getting a wheat beer. The beer is more low-end than places in LA offer.
My mom ordered the chicken sandwich with French fries and my dad had the Asian salad. They both liked them so much they said they would come back and order the same things again! And the wait staff was very friendly.
Next time you’re over in East LA county/the Inland Empire, check out The Heights!
