Whatever you are looking for in Big Bear, you will find it. This applies to everything from great outdoor recreation to delicious food. This is a particularly potent truth when it comes to great burgers, as you will find numerous places that are serving up classic as well as innovative approaches to this classic. The following are top places to eat in Big Bear for a delicious burger.

Get the Burger

When it comes to burgers, oftentimes the best ones come from places that put all their energy into this one food item. This is the dedication that you will find at Get the Burger. While the burger is pretty much the only thing you will find on the menu, you will find countless examples of this American classic. Take for example “The Director,” made with 2 ¼ lb. patties, two slices of cheese, grilled onions, lettuce, tomato, and their super-secret sauce. This is a great option but there is so much more to love here including some of the best vegan patties you will find anywhere. Find it at 42151 Big Bear Blvd.

If you’re looking to get out and explore the natural beauty of the Big Bear area, you have to make sure to prepare with appropriate clothing, snug hiking boots, a camelback full of water, and most important of all, a hearty breakfast! In the Big Bear area there are a number of delicious local restaurants serving up tasty eats for breakfast each and every day. Here are the top three breakfast restaurants to check out the next time you’re in Big Bear.

Teddy Bear Restaurant

When you think of teddy bears, a few things probably come to mind: warmth, a feeling of being safe and at home, caring. These things all pretty much sum up the Teddy Bear Restaurant, too! From the moment you walk through the door you’ll immediately welcomed and right at home, and the homestyle cooking that the artisans in the kitchen produce fits right in line with the atmosphere. The menu features a number of traditional meals that are homemade and will bring you back to a simpler time with every bite! Enjoy one of their three-egg omelets, waffles and pancakes, eggs cooked exactly how you want them, and so much more!

Mountain Munchies

If you’ve made the trip up to the Big Bear area, chances are you’re looking to get out and explore the great outdoors just like the old-school mountaineers used to, so why not start your day with an old-school mountaineer’s breakfast! Mountain Munchies serves up some of the biggest and heartiest breakfast portions in all of Big Bear that will help get your blood pumping and ready to take on any challenge the day can throw at you. Enjoy a delicious steak and eggs with hash browns, or a big “Red White and Blue” waffle topped with strawberries, blueberries, and whipped cream. The choice is yours, but no matter what you choose, you are guaranteed to leave with a fully belly!

Grind and Grill Café

But if you’re truly looking for the biggest, baddest, heartiest, and gravy-est breakfast in all of Big Bear, the title has to go to the Grind & Grill Café! In addition to the traditional sampling of delicious breakfast foods available each and every day, the Grind & Grill Café is the home of the locally famous Avalanche! Featuring two biscuits, two eggs, two strips of bacon, two sausages, and hash browns, all of this deliciousness gets smothered in an avalanche of their phenomenal gravy (there is also a “sissy” version that’s half the size)! There are few better ways to start the day by than by tackling the avalanche at Grind and Grill Café.

While it’s just as important to start the day on a high note with a delicious breakfast, it’s also equally important to end the day well with relaxation and a good night’s sleep. The best place to do that? Big Bear Cabins, of course! Big Bear Cabins has a number of incredible rental properties available throughout the Big Bear area that will give you the feeling of being right at home and help you to get the rest and relaxation you need to recharge and get back out there tomorrow!
