The restaurant’s website explains it all before giving up, announcing a contradiction, and defying you to make them care about it.

The Magic Lamp Inn, a Rancho Cucamonga landmark steakhouse was founded in 1955 by John Clearman. The steakhouse came into existence after the unfortunate burn down of ‘Lucy and John’s restaurant’, a restaurant located on Route 66 from 1941 to 1955. The building was reconstructed and then transformed into the Magic Lamp, which today is one of three places in the US that have an open flame at night on the sign which is designed like Aladdin’s lamp just outside the restaurant. The Rancho Cucamonga restaurant has a Bavarian feel but an Arabian Nights name.
