We have stopped by a number of these restaurants and have never been disappointed. The Patty Melt and Waldorf salad were excellent as well as the device. The portions are always large even when you order smaller portions.

I don't like meatloaf, but it looked real good and juicy, so decided to step outside my box. I was delighted and pleased with my choice. Black Bear Diners never fail to have some awesome food.
