    have/get

    I saw the next in the dictionary.
    Let's grab a bite to eat.= Let's get something to eat.

    I wonder if "1" and "2" have the same meaning.
    1. Let's have something to eat.
    2. Let's get something to eat.
    If "1" and "2" have the same meaning, I wonder if "3" is correct.
    3. Let's grab a bite to eat. = Let's have something to eat.

    'to grab a bite to it' conjures up in me an image of someone eating on the hoof in a hasty manner. To me, the the other expression is free of such connotations.
