    I did hear Jimmie Johnson does make a mean burger.

    I have a feeling you meant to say Get the Burger.

    I ate there with Hawg and PerfectZero last summer . . . indeed it was pretty good.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    Now that we all know where to eat, perhaps it's time to put some dates together to get up there...to enjoy the eats...and the trails.

    Village pizza, La Montana???, I think those are the two places us locals dont eat at. There is really not a great pizza up here, maybe Red Baron, Maggios, or Saucy Mama's for a decent pizza. For mexican food, El Jacilito or Hacienda (same owner) really good food. Teddy Bears is good and Get the Burger is really good but really expensive for what you get and they dont take debit, so have cash before you eat there.The Barn Stormer, Sweet Basil, Northshore Cafe and the Peppercorn are also top choices, although those are somewhat pricey.

    Sweet Basil Bistro if I feel like stopping, or there's better on the other side of the hill if you feel like going down the 18.

    Preferences. Having been a local on both shores, and now nearly recovered
    (maintainance on the cabin can be like a millstone on the neck) I've been eating at La Montana since it opened but would never eat at Red Baron. When the pizza uses canned mushrooms, this is a sign that we more cosmopolitan types (ie thems who dun left the hill) take to mean: Lame Ass Pizza. What next, fine cuisine at Pong's? Ha Ha!

    There is good food in Big Bear, but everyone's gonna have preferences. For pizza in the post Dongio's era, we like Maggio's and then Saucy Mama if we have to go into town. Both of those are in easy striking distance for riders staying somewhere near the trail systems on the south shore.

    La Montana supports racing, so if I need a couple chicken tacos and a Pacifico to throw down the neck before the 20 min drive home, I'll stop there.

    If it is still open BJ's on the east side of town has a great burger. We'd ride there from Pioneer Town up the back way to Big Bear and get lunch there before the return ride.

    The Peppercorn Grill in The Village has a kick-a$$ burger IMO.

    Large Angus burger w/side (Sweet Potato fries for me) $9.99
    Add Cheese $1.00
    Add Bacon $1.00
    Total $12.00

    A little pricey, but it was well worth it. 10,000x better that POS Mexican joint we went to the night before. I think is was La Montana...was on Moonridge.

    Yeah, tried "Get the Burger" last night. That burger was pathetic for the price they charged. Barely better than fast food. Anyone have any recommendations for real food there? I need a post ride dinner place.

    A new place that is pretty good by Big Bear standards is Black Diamond Tavern right at turn off for Moonridge. B's Backyard BBQ is fun as well

    7-11 down the street... crappy beer and crappy pizza. Who needs much else...
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
