Get the Burger

A quirky and fun counter-serve restaurant serving Hollywood-themed burgers and old-fashioned soda parlor-style sodas and malts, Get the Burger is Big Bear’s best burger destination. Read on below to learn more about this delicious Big Bear burger restaurant!

Hearty Burgers with Hollywood Flair

Step inside of Get the Burger and you’ll immediately notice the incredible alpine murals and retro checkerboard patterns that dominate the walls and floors, creating a unique 50s diner feel for your old-fashioned burger.

The menu includes named burgers and sandwiches themed around Hollywood and acting, such as the Director (with two quarter-pound patties, two slices of cheese, and special homemade sauce), the Leading Lady (a quarter-pound beef patty with sauce and grilled onions), the Stand-In (any burger on the menu with a vegetable patty as a substitute), the Starving Actor (a cheeseburger without the patty), the Child Star (a one-eighth pound patty made-to-order), the Codfather (beer-battered Icelandic cod with red cabbage and a spicy fry sauce) and the Grip (a Chicago-style burger with relish, peppers, and celery on a poppy seed bun). Sides like sweet potato fries and onion rings are also available.

Get the Burger’s Director burger was named one of the 19 Best Burgers in California by Thrillist, as well as The Inland Empire’s 22 Best Indie Burgers by Empire Magazine. The restaurant is also famous for its fry sauce, the contents of which are a well-guarded secret. You’ll just have to try their sauce for yourself and see if you can figure it out!

Beyond Get the Burger’s extensive burger selection, you can order an all-beef hotdog, a Green Room Garden Salad, or the Tater O’Neill—a tater tot dish with cheese, sour cream, chives, and bacon bits.

Quench your thirst with a variety of fountain drinks, beer, wine, old-fashioned soda, milkshakes, and malts. Try the Purple Gremlin, a float made from grape Crush and vanilla ice cream.

Something to keep in mind when you visit Get the Burger? Like all great burger restaurants, this Big Bear burger restaurant has a secret menu. If you don’t already know a local in the area who can clue you in on what to ask for, try asking for FX, spicy style, or raccoon style.
