Uncle Bear’s Grill and Bar is an upbeat, fun establishment that has been a neighborhood favorite for the last 12 years. All 4 Valley (Phoenix, Arizona) locations feature the same unique decor (all the places you would find Bear - the owner’s former Dog lying around) such as hints of the home, backyard, garage and neighborhood. The menu is quite extensive with gourmet burgers, unique pastas, thin crust pizzas, fabulous fajitas and some good ol’ BBQ. We offer a full bar with fantastic margaritas and some of the tastier local microbrews. We display over 20 plus flat-panel TV’s for all your sports viewing pleasures and free peanuts where you can toss the shell right on the floor.

Bring your dog with you

Uncle Bears is a fun place to go especially if you have a dog and if you like to watch sports on tv. They allow you to bring your dog to the outdoor seating. I liked the food but it is VERY LOUD so don't expect a relaxing experience.

Sub par bar food. Extremely salty, even my salt loving hubby complained. My grilled chicken tacos were lacking any evidence of grilling (such as grill marks). Just blah! We decided to try it for kids eat free on Wednesdays, but we will not be back.

I apologize if things can get a little noisy, Janine. It certainly gets lively around here, but I hope that you can relax all the same. With that being said, I'm glad you seem to always have a fun time with us, and we look forward to seeing you again. All the best, Josh More

Last time we gave Uncle Bears a 4 but now I honestly can't leave everyone thinking it's still true. Uncle Bears is now off our list. Honestly? Please don't go by our first rating.

Service was horrible! didn't get a refill on drink and server passed our table 10 times. It wasn't busy and our food took over 40 min to get to our table. The food was disgusting. I ate 3 bites of their burger and it was the worst burger I have ever ate. Don't waste your time here. Save your money... More

This was a late night decision. At about 830 we decided we wanted to eat somewhere and we wanted to use the Entertainment book. We decided on UNCLE BEARS because we wanted to take the puppy with. Located in a shopping area in Queen Creek, we found easy parking. We walked right into the open area patio and sat at... More

We often go there on the Harley, cold beer and Good food. The wife and I split the dinners because they re so big. Bring your dog, and the kids. Sometimes you'll have to wait, but not very often. The staff is great. Hope you like free peanuts- just dump the shells on the floor....:)

"Underwhelmed" is a kind word to describe our experience here. Service was slow, albeit courteous. Our server was friendly and helpful but way too busy to attend to us in a timely manner. The food was so-so. My chicken tacos contained very little actual chicken and were lukewarm at best. I was served a beer flight with five selections of... More

We are local and have been coming to Uncle Bears since they opened their Queen Creek resturant. Their service seems to have been reducing in quality each time we go. Tonight it took 15 minutes for a water refill, and we had to ask to have our main entries ordered. Also, the menus were left at the table and little... More
