My wife and I have been stopping into the Redlands Eureka Burger every other month or so for a few years. We like to get there shortly after they open and before the lunch rush.
The staff is friendly and attentive. Some recognize us as irregular regulars. The seating is comfortable, and the dining room is softly lit. There are several televisions that are muted with closed captioning enabled. All of the televisions are tuned to sports channels.
They offer a very nice variety of Craft Beers on tap and in bottles. I haven't had the same beer twice, and samples of what they have on tap are available. There is a Beer list of the beers they have all the time. (I'm told that the wines are listed on the backside of the beer list.) Seasonals, occasionals, and specials are presented on a chalk board.
The burgers are simply wonderful. All are single patties but you can double. The burger styles range from the Original that you can have with just about any combination of veggies and condiment you wish, through southwestern and Hawaiian styles. They have a chicken sandwich that is quite good.
My wife loves the veggie burger and their sweet potato fries.
My favorite is the Bison burger with pepper jack cheese, mushrooms, and a generous dollop of their bacon infused jalapeño jam.
We've enjoyed each of our visits to this restaurant and look forward to our next. It's on the upper end of our budget for restaurants as our usual meal comes to about $50 with the gratuity. For us, it's well worth the cost.

Came here tonight for the Pliny the Younger release that they had which IMHO surprised me that they got it; plus they also had RR IPA, Blind Pig, PtE, and Supplication on draft. 2/15/2012

The burger options aren't crazy or customizable, but at least they're good. The beer selection; ten beers on-tap, four of them rotate. Several options of Hangar 24 (naturally, this is Redlands), also Rogue, Inland Empire, Avery, and even Pliny the Elder and of course tonight Pliny the Younger. Roughly 30 bottled options as well, which includes Stone Ommegang, Big Sky, Mission, Maui, Russian River, and Lagunitas. Its nice to that they have specific glass ware for the different types and styles of beer. Beers besides the local stuff do tend to be a little on the higher side of price than I am used to or have seen else where. The staff though is very helpful and some do know what they are talking about when it comes to craft beer.

The Happy Hour looks good; save $2 off selected drafts (and I don't mean Coors Light and the like) from 2-6pm.

I've been wanting to try this place for a while on my day off, i work for an ambulance company in redlands so i had only tried a burger to go. i saw they had some good bottles at the time though. So i finally got a chance to go and enjoy it. pretty small in side with a table area thats separate from the bar. they advertised 9 beers on tap, but i only count 7 tap handles no maybe there was a second area that i missed. 3 beers on tap at all times are from hangar 24(makes sense) They also had a decent bottle selection on paper and some not on paper that were seasonal and/or special releases (with no real suggestions from the bartender) i asked for a PtE because it was on the menu of bottle they keep in stock, but they were out and she made it seem like its more of special release type thing for them. the price was a little expensive for instance that had a Santa's little helper 22oz for $18 but if you go down to bevmo they were $6.99. The food however is pretty good and avg priced.

overall its a good lunch spot can get some good beers there to accompany a good burger

My wife and I visited this place yesterday with NoSignsOfPain and DarthKostrizer. A very nice burger smell emanates as you walk towards the front door. The inside is somewhat small with both tables and a bar for people to sit at. They offer 6 craft taps and some rotating ones as well. They had on beer from Hangar 24, New Belgium, Oscar Blues, Rogue, Ommegang, etc. My wife got a Rogue Hazelnut Brown and I got an Ommegang Seduction and both were fresh and tasty. They also offer a pretty good list of bottled and canned beers if nothing on tap looks good. Their food was awesome and I would go back just for their burgers even if I wasn't going to drink any beer. The only downside is that this place is a bit pricey. I ended up paying about $40 for 2 burgers and 2 beers just for my wife and I.

Gourmet burgers are among the rage of today's society. And so is craft beer. Eureka! Burger is what you get when you combine the two trends. It's a mid-sized restaurant and bar with a small patio in the front.

The burger options aren't particularly crazy or customizable as one might hope, but at least they're damn good. The same could be said about the beer selection; ten beers on-tap, but three of them do rotate. Several options of Hangar 24 (naturally, this is Redlands), also Rogue, Inland Empire, Avery, and even Pliny the Elder. Roughly 30 bottled options, which includes Stone Ommegang, Big Sky, Mission, and Maui. I would have gone for a draft, but with a very helpful bartender, I was convinced to order a bottle of Shipwrecked after receiving tastes from a few of the drafts that I hoped to tick. I even received a short chalice to pour my beer into.

The Happy Hour looks good; save $2 off selected drafts (and I don't mean Coors Light and the like) from 2-6pm.

With its beer options, Eureka! Burger would be a decent stop for a beer or two, and perhaps a burger as well.

A tiny little restaurant off of the 10 freeway. The location is less then 3 years old but is the oldest of the 3 Eureka! Burgers in existence.

The Atmosphere is clean. There are televisions on the walls with some art and a few mirrors. The taplist is small but there is normally 4 rotating taps. These taps sometimes feature rare brews. Also a few beer related specials are push like Steal the Glass.

The employees know very little about the beer their are serving except a few things they were probably told in the morning.

Too make up for the limited tap space this E! Burger location makes up for with a large bottle list. The bottles are at normal restaurant mark up prices.

The food is tasty. Its a gourmet burger place so don't expect your burger to come our in 5 minutes if you order it anything other than medium. Try the short rib quesadilla. Its amazing.

Overall good restaurant in the San Bernadino area.

Corporate atmosphere. The place is clean but seems like a serious place, definitely not a laid back vibe by any means.

They use decent glassware. The tap list is shown with a chalkboard but it doesn't show their entire lineup. During my visit, they had Pliny on tap but it was not on the chalkboard or on the printed draft list, had to ask to find out.

Staff is friendly, service is somewhat quick but definitely good, there were multiple people checking up on us regularly.

They don't have many taps, and more than half of the taps are hangar 24 which you can find on tap anywhere in the area, plus the brewery itself is less than 10 minutes away.

Their bottle lineup is impressive, including RR sours and FW parabola.

Food was decent but incredibly well priced. They have happy hour every day of the week, with some great deals on certain menu items.

The atmosphere here is lacking. Feels like a corporate chain more than a small gourmet burger place. Lots of televisions, which I feel distract one from the feeling of a slow eating experience.

They recently expanded their beer list to include more drafts and more bottles (Pliny, La Folie, Hennepin,etc.) The prices are not bad. Sometimes they pour the beers in a chalice, sometimes in a pint glass. Not sure how they decide which one to use for which beer. For example, I ordered New Belgium's Sahti and it came in a chalice, and then I had Lost Abbey's Devotion and it came in a pint glass. Hmmm.

They also routinely change their taps. Everytime I go in there is something different. They had Consecration one time, and then another time Yeti.

The food is great. The Pearl Street Blues burger, Fig Marmalade Burger and the Maui Wowie(or whatever it is spelled like) are exceptional. Also, the veggie patty is made with a lot of red beets, and serves as a great way to change up a favorite burger.

The service is fast, maybe a little too fast. I kinda get that chain restaurant vibe a bit. Just eat and go. The staff is somewhat knowledgable, but most are not beer geeks or anything. It is kind of annoying when they are trying to tell me about a beer and they tell me all of these things that are wrong though. I ordered a saison du buff and they brought me san diego session beer and I said 'This isn't a saison, this is waaay too hoppy.' And they waitress just said that sometimes saisons are very hoppy. Uhhhh, no. Go read 'Farmhouse Ales'.

Anyway, if you are in Redlands, check it out.

Beers on tap - Oskar Blues Gubna, Hangar 24 Orange Wheat, Hangar 24 Alt, Hangar 24 Pale Ale, Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar, Green Flash West Coast IPA, Allagash White, Stone Smoked Porter.

Most beers where 5-7 bucks per 12oz. They also offer a beer sampler, wine, and bottled beers.

Atmosphere - A bit of dark wood with with just a few muted flat screens with sports on it. It felt like a cross between a Chillies restaurant & a brewpub. People talked among each other, nothing loud or rowdy.

I stopped in for my birthday with my bro on a Friday evening around 5:30pm. I hadn't been there before and had heard some good things about it. The place had a decent amount of people both young & old, the bar was rather empty with just a couple people sitting there.

The waitress was fast & a bit too attentive. My bro & I both ordered there original burger with fries, I tried there sweet potato fries glazed with honey & cinnamon, along with two Gubna DIPA's on tap. We where supposed to get 16oz pints, but we received 12oz pints. Not a big problem but it clearly says on the menu (16oz pint) so just be aware that you wont' be receiving 16oz pints!

The burgers where great with a wonderful charred/smokey flavor from the grill, sweet potato fries where outstanding, and we even received two desserts on the house for our birthdays! Beer was great & served properly as well. One thing I didn't like much is that the waitresses & clean up crew where a little bothersome, walking by nodding & smiling every few minutes or so, literally!

As my bro & I where leaving, almost all the seats where taken with some people even opting to sit at the bar and eat. All in all it was a little pricey but the great food, service, beer, and atmosphere make up for it. I'll definitely be back to this place sometime. I recommend you check out there website to get some pictures of the place, as well as there menu.
