Once a sleepy town nestled at the foot of the San Bernardino Mountains, Yucaipa has grown steadily in recent years. It now includes diverse families and professionals with upscale tastes. Food options have grown as rapidly as the community; although, the main boulevard is still a good place to go for a bite of traditional American steak, burgers, or seafood. Local barbecue restaurants serve Texas-style smoked brisket and Louisiana hot links. Italian food lovers will enjoy the traditional Neapolitan baked casseroles and freshly-made sandwiches served in casual lunch and dinner environments. Families can find many pizza choices, from deep dish to ultra-thin crust. Casual Chinese restaurants and unpretentious Japanese sushi bars are located on the town's main boulevard, within blocks of casual breakfast restaurants serving classic American diner food.
