We're at DJ's Coffee Shop this morning cooking up some bacon and eggs for you. This restaurant was rated by Yelp as the Best Breakfast in San Bernardino. That's the good news. Here's the bad. The City of San Bernardino was just named the worst city in America for Food Lovers.
The real estate website Movoto called it, "The Dead Zone of Cuisine." The writer came to that conclusion after looking at several subject areas like restaurants per capita, bakeries per capita and the number of food and wine festivals.
San Bernardino won the title with a score of 90.3. Garland Texas came in second. Some of the others on the list are North Las Vegas, El Paso Texas, Detroit Michigan and Forth Worth Texas.
Residents have mixed reactions. Some are offended saying, "I want to punch that writer." Others acknowledge there is truth to the report.
George Chaves said, "Ever since they shut down the military base, many restaurants went away." Another said, "We don't have too many choices out here." The City of San Bernardino also filed for bankruptcy a year ago. Residents complain there are no jobs out here. So, lack of good restaurants is the least of their worries.
Nonetheless, the report is harsh to say the least. One customer at DJ's Coffee Shop said, "I wanna find that writer and give me a piece of my mind!"
