What makes a restaurant a good place to eat? Anybody can rent a building, give it a name, open the door and call it a restaurant.
Armando Benitez dream was to open a restaurant that served delicious homemade food in a warm and friendly atmosphere. In 1997 after being a cook for 20 years and with the help of his wife, Armando opened his first location in Rancho Cucamonga. Fast forwarded to today, with the help of his wife and children Brandon’s Diner has grown to 8 locations. Brandon’s went from a single location with 4 employees to a small corporation of 300 employees.
Brandon’s Diner is family owned and operated. At each location you can walk in and be greeted with a friendly smile by any of his family. You can also come in and expect the same mouth watering home cooked meals at each location thanks to his hard working kitchen staff, most of whom have been with him for over 10 years. Some things vary at each location because they love to cater to their local regular customers. Special items that can sometimes be found are; brandon’s breakfast sandwich at Fontana, stuffed french toast and homemade cream pies at Corona, and salad bar for lunch at Riverside Indiana. Also their Ontario location has a breakfast buffet where posole (like the one mom makes) is served on weekends. Armando and his sister, Eva Duran, own Carnita’s Express. Some of their signature menu items include spicy spinach dip, camarones Puerto Vallarta and chocolate chimichanga.
Brandon’s Diner is popular for serving breakfast all day, some of their most beloved dishes are their big plate-size flapjacks, biscuits & gravy, and homemade chile verde. Although known for their breakfast don’t discredit lunch or dinner, their signature items for dinner are Taco Tuesday nights and monster size burritos.
If asked how he and his family have managed to become a success Armando Benitez says “it has been thanks to the support and loyalty of our customers and hard working employees that we have been able to grow. So we welcome anyone looking for a good size meal to join us at any of our locations. Come try our food and let us know how we can improve the best breakfast in town.”
Armando loves his restaurants so much that you can find him at any location having a cup of coffee and chatting with customers on his time off.
