Great food

Played some hockey for a short stint for a team in the area, and I ate at this place pretty much every night. Great food, at a great price, and the service was amazing. Nothing but good things to say about this place

Good food and a lot of food for your money. I have eaten here every time I stay in Aurora. Friendly staff and never have had to wait for a seat, but I do eat at off times mostly. Home cooked meals that I like - meat, potatoes and vegetables !!! Yummy... :)

They serve breakfast as well as sandwiched and dinners during the day. Coffee cup was refilled without being asked. Restaurant is right for any size group, they cater to families AND they are quite reasonable. Our bill for two, including tip, was under $20. We fell that It's better to eat here than go fast foods at the Outlet Mall... More

Heading out of Chicago, we were hungry and unfamiliar with the Aurora area. We weren't sure what to expect when we spotted Papa Bear. Fortunately we got a delicious meal at a reasonable price at Papa Bear. My taco salad was one of the best I have had (and I have them frequently) and my friend's cobb salad was excellent.... More

I was here a few weeks ago and had a club sandwich. It was huge and came with a generous serving of fries. I was also offered soup or a salad. I chose the soup and it was delicious! I think it was called chicken rosemarina....really not sure, but would go back just to have it again. A lot of... More

So you are on Interstate 88 on your way to Chicago and you you want to stop before the hustle and bustle of the city to stretch, gas up and "grab a bite". The perfect stop for all of the above is Papa Bear Family Restaurant. Whether it is for the night (motel near) or early morning approach this is... More
