I think Mario's Place is THE best restaurant in Riverside and possibly the Inland Empire. The family owned business is elegant, the food is phenomenal, and the service is top notch. It is pricey, but so worth it! Try the bar for some jazz and appetizers if you can'f afford dinner.
If you have a small wedding or other event (100 people or less), this is a fantastic venue! I have been to several weddings here and every one was beautiful.
I always head to Alin for all of my party needs. They have everything from balloons to wrapping paper to plates to cake decorating supplies. You can get just about everything you need for any kind of party here. Their prices are very reasonable also. They do offer a corporate or school discount as well.
I love Cost Plus World Market. They have so many unique items! I love the selection of food, wine, and beer from around the world. They have great housewares and fun gifts. I always go in around the holidays to see what they have in stock. And they also sell great furniture!
I usually rent videos online, but when I need something now, this is the closest place to my house. I always need help finding things because whoever categorized the videos is crazy. The staff is only moderately helpful. I'll stick to the mail for now.
Well, it's Big Lots, what do you expect. It isn't particularly dirty or trashy, but it's not high class. Honestly, it's just down right discount fun!
I love this store, especially now that it has been remodeled and turned into a Flagship store. They not only sell the great Bath and Body Works products I love, but they now carry top end lines like Phyto, Wexler MD, and other such high end products. I think it's fantastic!
I don't think this is the best Mexican restaurant in Moreno Valley by any means, but it isn't bad. They do a pretty good Sunday brunch for under $15 per person, which is usually when I go. It's worth going in for that.
This is the better of the book stores in the Moreno Valley Mall, but it isn't my favorite book store in the area. I prefer the very large versions. But if I'm going to the mall for other things and need a book or a magazine, I'll stop in. I like to check for sales.
If I'm already in the mall and I need to get a book, I'll stop in, but otherwise, I won't make a special trip. The store is TINY! They have a decent selection, but there just isn't much room. Don't make a special trip.
