Today, we continue their mission at every Black Bear Diner across the country, as we passionately provide guests an outstanding experience.

Great burger and sweet potato fries; creamy grits; nice iced tea; freshly ground coffee; and freshly squeezed O.J. Very good communication and cooperation between dining room and kitchen. Wait staff very personable and efficient. I mentioned grits and the next thing there was a small bowl in front of me.

I liked the fact that if you had a cell phone they could text you when your seat was ready. Also love that they originated in California which is my home state. Lastly, the large portion of food. If you walk away hungry it's because either you didn't like the food and you just didn't eat it or YOU JUST DIDN'T EAT.

Keep feeding your inner bear! We look forward to seeing you soon Veronica Ronnie Crownover !
