    Dine 909: Closed Taco Tia finds new life as Flame Broiler in San Bernardino

    And then there was one. The last remaining San Bernardino Taco Tia, at 2635 Del Rosa Ave., closed earlier this year. A banner has gone up at the former location indicating that The Flame Broiler will be taking its place.
