This location is Biggie’s Burgers first expansion from its original is spot in San Clemente, which has been operating for 22 years. In San Clemente, Biggie’s is a staple amongst locals and visitors looking for a classic and hearty lunch after a morning surfing session at Trestles.
The Pacific Beach Biggie’s is a convenient option for surfers and beachgoers looking for a tasty burger and milkshake to cool down from a long beach day.
"Our motto from our original owner in San Clemente, Richard Brown, is that 'if we wouldn't serve our food to our family, we wouldn't serve it to our customers,'” said Marlin Guerra, general manager of Biggie’s Burgers in Pacific Beach.
“We get our meat freshly ground every two days, we make our own patties, cut our own lettuce, all our veggies are fresh, and we pride ourselves on serving our food fresh everyday to our customers,” Guerra said. “We're trying to recreate that special burger that your grandma made fresh at home for you. We want to be that friendly neighborhood burger joint for the whole family."
The eatery offers a standard American hamburger menu with a wide array of specialty burgers and variations offered to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. The menu features single and double patty burgers and cheeseburgers that come with a wide variety of different toppings.
The menu also offers turkey burgers, king burgers, veggie burgers, BBQ burgers, and grilled chicken for those who are looking to try something a little different. There’s also grilled cheese, BLT sandwiches, and chili dogs for the non-burger eater. Meal deals are offered daily, which include the burger with fries and a drink.
If one is a carb-conscious consumer, the menu also features garden salads, chicken breast salads, lettuce-wrapped burgers, and even a low calorie, gluten-free meal option.
For the connoisseur of fries, Biggie’s has options: curly fries, steak fries, and thin fries. Additionally, guests may order thin and straw onion rings, chili cheese fries, and even zucchini fries – for the fry-lover who’s had enough of potatoes.
As for tasty beverages, guests may chose from chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry milkshakes, as well as root beer floats – for a nostalgic treat.
The restaurant features a fresh white-washed exterior and clean indoor design. When ordering, a friendly cashier will walk you through the menu and suggest meal options. Inside seating allows customers a look into the kitchen where their hamburgers are being prepared. The restaurant also features barstool seating along windows that look out onto bustling Mission Boulevard.
A vibrant, colorful, and detailed mural of the Pacific Beach boardwalk is featured along the main wall of the restaurant, which features many of the landmarks, activities, and eccentric locals that make PB a special place.
Next to the mural is a large flat screen television that plays popular movies throughout the day. Classic rock music such as the Beach Boys, Sublime, and Red Hot Chili Peppers are on the dining room’s soundtrack.
