I have to head to San Bernardino next week for a week on business and I keep hearing how bad it is. Anyone have any advice as far as good restaurants or bars or the area in general?

Lots of restaurants with bars on Hospitality Ln. north of the 10 @ the Waterman exit. Berdoo is one rough town so do be careful out there.

While pricey, the area mentioned by da jammer is likely the only good part of SB for someone coming in for a week. I would definitely go to the Lotus Garden, a wonderful restaurant my wife and I feasted at regularly - M/C, Visa and Debit. There is also a Jackpot restaurant on Waterman just south of the 10 (looks like a hole in the wall) that has superior Asian food as well - they take cash only. If you travel under the 10 and take a left on Redlands, travel about 3 miles to Mountain View - on the right corner is A Dong, a restaurant strongly recommended by colleagues of mine. And traveling further up Redlands Blvd about 4 miles, just past the Post Office on the left is a Thai restaurant. You can find steak and ribs, a world buffet, seafood, and Mexican at other places on Hospitality, but those I've mentioned won't necessarily be listed or they won't necessarily stand out in any directory any hotel may offer.Travel down Hospitality further east , turning right up a road next to Home Depot and before Chuck E. Cheese and you will find other establishments that are like chains, including a newly renovated In and Out Burger.
It was kind of like my backyard for several years, so I apologize if I don't know all the street names.

Thanks for the feedback. I keep hearing how rough San Bernardino is but luckily I'm only going to be there for 6 days. I'm always curious about restaurants/bars when traveling because I like to unwind after a long day. I do have to try an In N Out Burger. I hear they're good.

there just happens to be an In-N-Out one exit east of Waterman just north of the 10 on Tippecanoe Ave. Get a 4X4 with some animal fries

I have to second the recommendation for Lotus Garden on Hospitality Lane. That is the best damn Chinese food you're gonna get in SoCal.

I highly doubt you are gonna be killed in San Bernardino. Just stay away from the Waterman Gardens area and you'll be fine.

I drove through the Waterman Gardens area last spring and had no trouble at all. On the other hand, I was driving east on 9th street east of E street and was nearly in the middle of a riot. Sitting there stuck in traffic at a signal light around 5:15 pm, a big fight broke out right next to me on the side walk. Some chick was confronting her man about him cheating on her.....Then a whole crowd started to gather representing each of them. It was the first time in my life I've ever been scared while driving through my old home town. I was in a convertible too.....yikes! I was terrified someone was going to pull out a pistol!

That's when you bust a move onto the sidewalk in your car to escape the fray!

My brother had a '64 Chevy Impala and was in SB in the Waterman Gardens area and a pack of G's ran toward his car and demanded he give it up to him "Yo, yo yo! Ay, give up dat hoop-D". My bro was behind another car at a stop light. Fortunately he wasn't close to the car in front of him so he was able to go around and fly through the red light and get the heck outta there. To this day he always maintains some distance between himself and the car in front of him just in case he has to make a hasty exit.

I didn't drive "through" Waterman Gardens, I just drove by it on Waterman and Baseline.

There was too much traffic for me to drive around anything or anyone.......scarey stuff!
