New MIGUEL’S JR Opens in Redlands + Giveaway! #MiguelsJr

MIGUEL’S JR. is opening their 16th location in Redlands, California this week in the Mount Grove Shopping Center. I got a sneak peek of their new 3,000 square foot establishment and it is quite modern and nice. It is in a great location and the staff members are eager to serve the Redlands community with a tasty menu with family recipes. It might make a great stop for savory breakfast burritos on the way to Big Bear or a quick dinner coming back. It is also down the street from Splash Kingdom Waterpark, and since it’s in a shopping center, here’s another option for a quick bite to eat.

This is a post written by me for Summer Break is here! I am looking forward to no early alarm clocks, not packing school lunches, no pick up alarms, and no waiting in pick up lines. Aren’t you?
