"Whether you're looking for a great breakfast, lunch or dinner, you need to give Holiday Cafe a taste. Offering fresh and affordable food the whole family will love, see why all the locals congregate here! My favorites are the Holiday Bomb Burger, the Greek salad with hand cut vegetables made to order and the tasty Pastrami melt."

"‪#‎FoodPorn‬ at its Best in the ‪#‎InlandEmpire‬! Totally digging the immense flavor of these Pastrami Chili Cheese Fries from @HolidayCafeOntario in Ontario, CA. And if this isn't enough for the Pastrami Lover, gotta do their Pastrami Melt on Rye. ‪#‎tbfPERIOD‬"


On Oct. 21, 2015 we had the pleasure of having as a guest the food critic / blogger / traveller The Best Food Period. Picture posted on Instagram @thebestfoodperiod on Oct. 22, 2015.

"While the Holiday Cafe is famed as a breakfast restaurant, it's actually open 5:30am until 10:00pm, meaning that you can order a flexible meal of your favorite breakfast and dinner foods whenever you crave them. They offer a full range of breakfast burritos, pancakes and waffles, as well as delicious and healthy salads. The house special that keeps people coming back is their Pastrami Melt, which comes with a generous portion of pastrami meat, jalapenos and fresh rye bread. Don't be put off by the fact that they offer drive-thru, as everything prepared in the restaurant is exemplary, and comes in huge portions."


Top 10 Restaurants In Ontario, California: The Best Local Eats, by Rowan Anderson, Jan. 2015 - 


"This place puts most other fast-food restaurants to shame."

Eat big at Ontario's Holiday Cafe, by Allan Borgen, Daily Bulletin, Nov. 16, 2012


"Holiday Cafe is a great addition to the Ontario area's many eateries, with a menu chock-full of choices, reasonable prices and friendly staff. I am sure Holiday Cafe is here to stay." 


The new Holiday Cafe is a cause for celebration, by Elaine Lehman, Daily Bulletin, Sept. 21, 2012

"Housed in an old Arby's restaurant on North Milliken Ave. across from the Ontario Mills and next to Sam's Club in Ontario is the most enjoyable fast food restaurant called the Holiday Cafe.


When you enter this clean and inviting restaurant, soft jazz can be heard throughout the dining room, while the menu over the front counter offers a large variety of delicious and affordably priced breakfast, lunch and dinner items that are made fresh to order and served to your table by friendly staff. 


Unlike most other "fast food" restaurants, Holiday Cafe offers little extras that sets them apart, like cutting and slicing their meats, hand breading their zucchini and onion rings plus a surprise which I will tell later in this review on how thy serve their Greek Salad.


For breakfast (which is served all day), the Spinach and Feta Cheese Omelet made with 4 eggs and served with crisp homemade hash brown potatoes and toast is a great choice, while the Holiday Scrambler with ham, pineapple and cheese sure makes eating breakfast here both fun and filling.


For those who love fries, the choice is easy! Get the Pastrami Chili Cheese Fries This monstrous creation consists of a huge stack of crisp fries topped with a ton of delicious thick chili, fairly lean and very tasty pastrami and lots of melted cheese. I have had many versions of this before, but this rendition is one of the best I have had.


Looking for something a little healthier? Why not try the traditional Greek Salad with lots of exceptional tasting and not too salty feta cheese, kalamata olives, cucumbers, tomatoes and red onions tossed with a light lemony Greek dressing. Now for the surprise I mention earlier on in this review. In addition to the pita bread that comes with the salad, this lovely creation is served in get this, a large cold ceramic plate. Find that at other fast food restaurants! If you enjoy really good salads, this is definitely an attractive and delicious choice.


One of the most popular items on the menu is the "Holiday Bomb", two 1/3rd beef patties that are char broiled and served with American cheese, slices of avocado, crisp bacon, grilled onions, mushrooms, red bell peppers and a slice of ham all nicely sandwiched between a toasted bun along with 1000 island dressing, lettuce, tomato and pickles. Talk about one incredible and filling culinary treat!


Other items found on the menu that I devoured and are definitely worth ordering include the Grilled Salmon Plate with soup or salad and a choice of fries and onion rings, rice and beans or vegetables and Greek Rice, the delicious Avocado Turkey Bacon Wrap (my favorite wrap) and the Spicy and tasty Jalapeno Cheeseburger with horseradish and all of the traditional goodies that come with a burger.


I really love this restaurant and judging by the huge crowds of loyal fans, I know this is one fast food restaurant that you and your family will surely enjoy."
