One sunny day as I was driving down Valley Boulevard in Colton and I noticed a small fast food restaurant. Unlike other restaurants in the tiny city, which are amazing in their own way but are never really crowded with customers, P&G Burgers was simply overflowing with people. Obviously, the place really caught my attention, so I decided to drop in—and boy, I am sure glad I did.
P&G Burgers has been serving the locals since 1977. While the inviting restaurant, friendly staff and nostalgic retro signs adorning the walls add to the allurement of visiting, it’s the restaurant’s outstanding burgers and other tasty menu items that are the most attractive to us “serious eaters.” P&G Burgers offers a variety of traditional as well as original items that will surely delight your taste buds.
From the breakfast side of the menu, I recommend the Steak and Eggs, a juicy 8-ounce Rib-Eye steak with three eggs, crispy hash browns and a side of toast. There’s also a winner in the simple yet delicious Egg Sandwich with Bacon, a three-egg omelet with three strips of crispy bacon, lettuce, tomato and a smear of mayo. Both of these dishes are classics and P&G Burgers makes sure it has that classic taste every time you order.
But if you’re looking for that overwhelming factor of being “dazzled,” you’ve got to try the Monster Style Fries. Imagine a huge mountain of thick fries, smothered with 1000 island spread, grilled onions and cheese. Those who are fans of In-N-Out’s “Animal Style” will get that flavor, and more, with this amazing appetizer.
However it’s the burgers that are the cherished choice at P&G, and they do indeed have some outstanding specialties such as the massive three-quarter pound beef Triple Bacon Cheese Burger, leaning on the traditionally well-done patty and all of its condiment glory. Or the delicious Pastrami Chili Cheese Burger with a mess of grilled onions and Swiss cheese. Talk about some hefty burgers! These items also come with large steak fries, fried onion rings, fried zucchini and a drink. It’s a deal to be sure, and one that will keep you full throughout day.
Even with P&G Burgers’ exciting Bacon Ranch Chicken Breast Sandwich, complete with a juicy marinated chicken breast lovingly laid on a French roll with lettuce, tomato, Swiss cheese, ranch dressing and crisp, salty bacon, or hearty Pastrami Steak Sandwich, this restaurant brings traditional American meals to a whole new level.
To top off that amazing flavor is the staple of washing down American cuisine with a sweet, thick Milk Shake or Root-Beer Float. Where else can you expect to get a classic shake? Certainly not from franchises like Bob’s Big Boy or Johnny Rockets, that’s for sure.
In closing, P&G Burgers is an impressive and quality eatery with food that provides consistent and delicious flavor every time you order. Colton is lucky to have it!
