Great, fast service and awesome food. I don't normally like corned beef hash, but tried my husband's because it looked so good and I am going to get it next time!

Our waitress was exceptional - gave the grandson a stuffed bear which made him very happy. Food was pedestrian - chicken fried chicken was not particularly flavorful but the salad was very nice with more than the tiny dollop of dressing one usually gets.

This is such a cool place to eat. The food is absolutely delicious and the atmosphere is great. I had the open face turkey sandwich; and it was wonderful. My girlfriend had the huge burger; all I can say is Wow. I recommend this restaurant for all to eat & enjoy. Enjoy! Enjoy! Enjoy.

We have gone to dinner at Black Bear several times. Saturday nights, the Prime Rib is the special. You get a large slice of beef with vegetables, potato and soup or salad. It's a great price and is very good. The service has always been good. Food comes out slowly when they are busy, but that's to be expected. There... More

Simply said, I love Black Beer Diner. It's home cooked comfort food cooked to perfection. The portions are huge so bring an appetite. Some of my favs that I have tried here are the burgers, meat loaf, pancakes, biscuits & gravy and of course, the Friday night Fish & Chips. I have never had a bad meal here and always... More

As snowbirds, our kids/grandchildren live out of state from AZ, so my husband asked where I would like to go for a couples breakfast out. We had not been to a Black Bear in Chandler, AZ so I chose it as the place to go as we have one in our home state and were familiar with the menu. We,... More
