They have a variety of good selections. I could only eat half of their portion. It is located next to mission inn. They have tables outside. My favorite thing to do is eat my meal outside Simple Simons .

The go-to place in downtown Riverside for lunch catering is Simple Simon's. The sandwiches are creative and served on the widest variety of breads I have ever seen. BUT save room and hope they sent some of the cookies, or better yet the brownies. These...More
