The Black Bear Cafe has some of the best mexican fare we've ever enjoyed -- anywhere -- including Mexico! The chef is often there, and takes great pride in serving authentic, well-prepared, perfectly spiced Mexican cuisine. The server/cashier always has a pleasant demeanor, and the place is fast becoming a local favorite. So, if you're in the mood for extremely good Mexican food, this place is golden!
Now, atmosphere is another story. If you're expecting a fine-dining Mexican restaurant, or even something along the lines of the chain restaurants that serve Mexican (Chilis, Chevys, etc), you will be disappointed. The interior seating has a counter, a glass-front refrigerator for beverages, and a few small tables (including some high-tops). It is NOTHING fancy. Now, I should mention that in warm weather seasons, there is a nice outdoor backyard where you can dine -- including a hammock if you want a quick siesta -- but the restaurant needs to clean-up the breezeway getting back to that area (which is cluttered, and often has an unpleasant odor).
So, food gets a 100%; exterior seating gets a 85%; interior seating gets a 40%. No matter what, though, I'd still go there for the food -- it is truly the best!
