We travel a lot by car, and stop at black bear diners all over. The food is the same from one to the next (like McDonald’s!) consistently good! They have a huge menu, covering all the meals - breakfast, lunch & dinner- anytime. I am...More

We have been going to this diner for over 15 years. Love the consistently excellent food, great service and reasonable prices. We have been going to church early on Sunday so restaurant is not as busy at 8:00 in the morning. Love the Juevos Rancheros.

I usually come in by myself or with my boyfriend after church on Sunday’s. Although the restaurant is always busy, we usually sit at the bar, and the service is always great. The food is amazing, I’ve never had anything there that I didn’t like!

Always get a decent meal at a good price. I can count on friendly staff and a clean place. As many times as I have eaten at Big Bear diners I have never been disappointed. Especially in their breakfast

The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is a comfortable setting. There is always music playing and TV to watch if interested. They will NOT disappoint you in the amount of food you get for the money you spend.

You will not leave here hungry! We've been to this location often with my parents. Great variety on the menu. However, the timing of the delivery of the food is consistently bad. Last Sunday, dad's main dish plate was out within a couple of minutes...More
