Every small business has had to adapt to the mass of challenges that have come with the COVID-19 pandemic. With people staying home more frequently and avoiding all unnecessary social contact, businesses have had to come up with innovative ways to bring their services to their communities. 

Local restaurants have been hit particularly hard. As people find cost-effective ways to cook in their homes, restaurants suffer. In 2020 alone, over 100,000 restaurants closed permanently due to COVID-19. This trend is sure to continue in 2021 unless we find our own innovative ways of supporting local restaurants. By dining outdoors and ordering takeout, we can help local restaurants stay open. Keep reading to learn about a few of our favorite restaurants in Chino Hills.

Mes Amis

Mes Amis’s delicious traditional Lebanese food makes it easy to understand why it’s one of our favorite restaurants in Chino Hills. Using recipes that have been passed through the family for generations, chef and owner Sammy Elias creates dishes that offer unique flavors and fresh ingredients. 

They offer a convenient takeout menu featuring their most popular dishes. They are currently open five days a week, Tuesday through Saturday, with lunch offered from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and dinner from 5 to 8:30 p.m. As their hours regularly change in response to COVID-19 updates, be sure to check their website regularly for the latest news.
