About STONEFIRE Grill

Our restaurant comes from our own family to yours; they are a tribute to our mother, Mary Lou, for the meals and memories alike. Let the fire spread from our kitchen to your heart.

The summer of 2000 gave way to a new fast-casual dining concept envisioned by sisters, Mary and Maureen Harrigan. The result? Some of Southern California’s most vibrant and popular restaurants, STONEFIRE Grill. Veterans of full-service restaurant operations, the sisters longed for something different, an innovative move away from length dining experiences, transitioning instead towards a simpler approach focusing specifically on freshness, efficiency and value.

Today, our Team happily serves the greater Southern California community with eight, soon to be nine locations, and Mary and Maureen rely on a much bigger Team to accomplish the same goal freshly prepared and simply delicious meals for their Dine In, Takeout and Catering guests.

Much more than food, STONEFIRE is a part of the community in the truest sense. As a Company with values based in loyalty, teamwork and mutual support, each STONEFIRE Team, as well as the entire STONEFIRE Family, actively seeks opportunities to support those around them. Please feel free to contact us here to learn more about our company or how your Rancho Cucamonga business can partner with us!

We hope you are as excited as we are for you to have all of your STONEFIRE favorites a little bit closer to home!

Rancho Cucamonga, we look forward to serving YOU!

Healthy and Quick Lunch Ideas for the Work Week

Healthy and Quick Lunch Ideas for the Work Week

Do YOU ever feel like you’re in a rut with your lunch? Keeping that midday meal fresh and tasty can be a bit of a challenge. Why? Well, it’s so easy just to grab whatever is easiest and quickest for lunch, but that’s not always the most healthy.  Plus, it can be hard to be creative with a lunch menu when you feel limited by the fact that it has to fit in a small container that’s easy to take along.

We’d like to help you out with that by offering some quick and healthy lunch ideas that will keep you from getting into the “lunch rut” and make your midday meal a tasty treat during the work week.

Meal Prep: A Regular Routine

Perhaps one of the greatest tools for staying out of the “lunch rut” is to prep your lunches ahead of time.  Yes, meal prep can feel like a chore, especially of you don’t consider yourself much of a chef, but trust us when we say, meal prep is the key to success.

When you run a restaurant like STONEFIRE Grill, prepping your food is one of the most important steps. Sure, we cook to order for our guests, but we have a dedicated Team who arrive early every day to prep. This entails washing, cutting, chopping and slicing vegetables that will be used for salads, side dishes and even some of our pizzas as well as mixing and simmering our sauces that we use for many of our entrees.

Prepping food ahead of time enables us to provide excellent guest service because a large portion of the work required for certain dishes is done long before we open for business.  This same principle can be applied to you as well.  Taking about 30 minutes to an hour on the weekend or early in the week, can go a long way in keeping you on track with a healthy lunch and a healthy budget – you won’t be tempted to grab fast food, or worse, something from the vending machine. That will save you money in the long run and you’ll likely find that you stay more energized and focused during the day by avoiding unhealthy or sugary snacks.

Meal Prep Tips

A quick Google Search of Quick and Healthy Lunch ideas, will bring up a number of resources that will offer some great recipe ideas to keep your lunches fresh and healthy. However, we’ve come up with a list of tips that we think will make meal prep easier and maybe even a little fun.

  • Containers: Investing in a few lunch containers is a great start. Many places now offer compartmentalized containers allowing you to keep all of your ingredients separate in the same container.
  • Pre-cut veggies: If you really don’t enjoy spending much time in the kitchen, then take advantage of the pre-cut veggie packs that are available in the produce section of your supermarket. Yes, they are a bit more expensive but will save you a lot of time.
  • Hard-boiled eggs: Hard-boiled eggs have got to be one of the easiest quick-fix ideas.  It takes only about 15 minutes to hard boil eggs and if you do several at a time, you’ll have them ready to go for the next few days.  Eggs are a great source of protein for a mid-morning snack or a lunch side dish and they are small enough to fit in almost any container.
  • Mason jar salad: If you spend any time on Pinterest, you’ve likely seen the genius idea of packing a salad in a Mason Jar for easy take-along. These can be made up ahead of time, or if you’re fixing a salad for your family dinner, make some extra and put it in a mason jar for tomorrow’s lunch. Layer the ingredients starting with the dressing then followed by the harder vegetables that won’t soak up the dressing, such as carrots or celery. Then just layer up from there making sure the lettuce is on the top where it will stay fresh and crisp.
  • Pasta: Pasta is one of those things that can be made in advance and used as a base for a number of quick and tasty lunches. Who doesn’t like a great pasta salad? Hint: also works for mason jars.
  • Sauces: If you like a tasty sauce for your meat or pasta, then preparing some of your favorite sauces ahead of time will make your life much easier.  If you prepare a sauce for your family dinner, make a bit extra to use through the week.  Sauces can keep for several days and can also be frozen and one of the best things about sauces…..they taste better the longer they simmer and marinate.

Healthy Lunch at STONEFIRE Grill

Of course, the occasional lunch out is always a treat and a great way to avoid the “lunch rut.” Here at STONEFIRE Grill, we offer a number healthy lunches that will keep you on track and on budget. Our $7 Lunch Specials are a fantastic option.  Plus, we make it easy with our convenient online ordering.  Browse our menu, place your order and then pick up at one of our many convenient locations.

Happy Lunching!

It’s hard to believe that it’s already May and that summer is just around the corner.  As we usher in the month of May, we anticipate the celebration of Memorial Day, marking the official start of summer. Whether you host a big annual BBQ or you tend to be a little more spontaneous with your weekend plans, remember, STONEFIRE Grill can help make it a great kick-off to summer no matter how big of a group you may be hosting.

Big Group BBQ

If you’re one to host a large Memorial Day gathering and invite the whole neighborhood, then you might consider letting STONEFIRE Grill cater your Memorial Day BBQ.  Our online Catering Menu makes it easy for you to plan your menu for the day.  We offer catering packages that are priced per person, starting at $7.99; so if you’re planning to feed the whole neighborhood, we’ve got YOU covered.

Here are some menu ideas to get you started.

  • Appetizers- Appetizers are a great way to kick-off any gathering. Start with one of STONEFIRE’s delicious appetizers like our famous BBQ Meatballs. They come in two varieties, our Signature or our Spicy variety.
  • Main Course- Follow-up your appetizers with one of our Signature Selection catering packages. Start with “The Trio” which includes Boneless Chicken breast, Tri Tip, and Baby Back Ribs. Add a Garden salad, Cowboy Beans and our Freshly Baked Breadsticks that are included with all of our Signature Catering packages.
  • Dessert- Of course no BBQ can go without dessert and we’ve got some great options but Our Incredible Carrot Cake is the perfect finishing touch for your neighborhood Memorial Day BBQ!

BBQ on a Whim

If your Memorial Day gatherings are a bit more spontaneous, we can help you with that too.  Our Crowd Pleaser menu items are a great way to feed 6 or more people for those more impromptu gatherings with family and friends.  Here’s a sample menu that’s sure to please everyone:

  • Whole Tri Tip & Full Slab of Ribs – It’s really not a summer BBQ without ribs and STONEFIRE Grill’s are always a hit. Our baby back ribs are slow roasted and then finished over a live mesquite fire. Pair these with an order of our Pepper Garlic Tri Tip topped with Gorgonzola butter…… it just doesn’t get any better. Plus, our Crowd Pleasers come with your choice of a large salad and 18 of our freshly baked bread sticks.
  • Add a couple of sides to this such as our Whole Roasted Cauliflower and a large order of our Garlic Mashed Potatoes for the perfect complement to your meal.
  • Our Heavenly Cheesecake topped with fresh blueberry sauce is the perfect way to top off this delicious summer menu.

Fun in the Sun

If you’re one who likes to head out for some fun in the sun over Memorial Day Weekend, here’s a great menu plan that will make your mini-getaway easy and tasty.

Start with one of STONEFIRE’s many delicious sandwiches like the BBQ Chicken Wrap filled with Mesquite Grilled Chicken, avocado, red onion, lettuce and tomato all wrapped in a flour tortilla.

Another great option is to order from our catering menu. Start with a small order of Chips, Salsa and Guacamole which would be a perfect complement to our South of the Border Wrap which is available with Quinoa, Chicken Breast or Tri tip.

Add to this an order of STONEFIRE’s famous Sandy’s Cookie which is a delicious oatmeal cookie with heath bar, chocolate chips and walnuts….. YUM!

STONEFIRE offers many sandwich options that are a tasty and convenient way to please a small group of friends kicking off the summer with some fun in the sun.
