Bears has a laid back atmosphere, great service, and great burgers. I've eaten at the one in Mandeville and the one that was in Slidell. Always consistently tasty and reasonably priced!

The restaurant is not open for hours that are convenient for us, but we always make an effort to stop by when we are in the area 10:30 AM - 3:00 PM Tues-Sat. Great Po-boys with all the normal fixin's.

Food is always consistently delicious and fresh. Service always friendly and fast. Gets crowded at lunch but they move the line quickly and order is always accurate. I have never had a bad experience with food or service. We eat here pretty often.
