I don't know what it is, I can't find a pizza that lives up to the ones that I had back in the midwest.

What are some of your favorites in this area? I've tried Romano's in Redlands, Jersey's Pizza there was highly recommended but I didn't care for it, and Pizza 'n' Such in Claremont is okay, but not great.

Suggestions?

Not ever having experienced midwest pizza, I don't have a clue what you're looking for. Since moving out here from South OC 10 years ago, I've been underwhelmed by the local, non-chain offerings. In fact, after eating pizza at some place in Upland, I experienced my first ever "like s**t through a Christmas goose" reaction. 30 minutes after eating the pizza, it was leaving me, still looking like chewed pizza, via the back porch. Can't remember the name of the place, so I've probably tried to block it like little kids do with traumatic experiences.

Try The Mug Italian Restaurant (Highland Ave west of the 15). Same spot, same family owners for 63 years. Great pizza.

The area is pretty sketchy, so I'd recommend going early rather than late, and watch your surroundings. My sister and her family were having dinner there one night. The couple next to them paid and left. A few seconds later, my sister looked out the window, and saw the couple was being robbed at gun point in the parking lot!

But hey, that's Berdoo for ya.

Yes, 215. Only reason I coughed is because Highland is also west of the 15, but it's 11 miles from The Mug. (as the crow flies, not as the road goes)

Just went there and met a friend for lunch last weekend. The pizza is very good, but different. I like to get the mixed sausage/pepperoni. Years ago, it would be swimming in grease. I wondered if there was something wrong with me, because friends who went there with me once, wouldn't go again.

Yes, I wouldn't go there at night. West Highland Avenue, in general, has been in decline for years. My office back in the 80s was next to Arrowview Middle School, and we saw all sorts of things. Lots of vagrants wandering around on the street. I general, they stayed away from our three outbuildings, but one guy urinated on one of the doors on the Highland Avenue side.

I don't know if it's still true, but the Mug used to be popular with local law enforcement. There's a story going around that these two idiots tried to rob the place while there was a police lieutenant's retirement party happening in one of the private rooms. These fools were cuffed and in the back of a police car before they knew what hit them.

I've driven by there many times, and paid no attention to Bobo's. The menu looks good, especially the Ultimate Meat Lover's pizza. Thanks!

Alfredo's, on Base Line, is also quite good. Again, a sketchy neighborhood, but I've never heard of any trouble there.

San Biagio's in Upland is the best NY style in the IE. Pizza is generally pretty mediocre in the IE, but Biagio's is good stuff.
