The BBQ here is delicious! I got the pulled pork and it barely needed BBQ sauce. Not dry at all. Also got corn on the cob and beans, which were great, too. For all that it costs around $12. My boyfriend got the chicken and brisket, and they were delicious, too. Can't beat that price! Just great to have BBQ... More

All I can say is it should be on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. We eat here every time we visit. I get the brisket sandwich, with baked beans and slaw. Even when full, I want more. So dang good.

A must stop.... Very good BBQ for a reasonable price. Got the pulled pork and beef brisket combo dinner. Very good meal. You may want to consider getting there early as they were running out of everything the evening we were there. Was a busy day for them and the process of supply and demand was too much for them...

Good BBQ food. Simple fast food type restaurant. Would go back. The service wasn't overly friendly but sufficient.

Hungry bear bbq has the best ribs I have ever had in my life. They are fall off the bone tender and their mild bbq sauce is delicious. If my husband cleaned our house like he cleaned off those bones we would live in a hospital!

Not sure what happened to the previous reviewer. but our experience was awesome on Oct 11th. We split the pork/brisket dinner special with corn on the cobb and bread. Based on the waitress' recommendation we mixed the hot bbq with the sweet bbq sauce and it was fantastic. We sat outside at one of the many tables, to enjoy the... More

We heard a local talking about this place so we thought we would try it. I guess we are picky or used to better food but this was horrible. The ribs were dry and cold, the potato salad was hard as if the potatoes were not even cooked. Will not go back and I sure wish we had our $40.00... More

The first night we ate here I had the rib sandwich and my husband had brisket. Both were very good in flavor, though the brisket was a tad dry. The potato salad and macaroni and cheese were really good! The second night we ate here, we both had the chicken and the same sides. The chicken had good flavor but... More
