The one thing you always do when you come to Black Bear diner is, bring an empty stomach. Their food is outstanding. Portions are huge! Save room for pie

My sister and niece love this place. I thought it was just an off brand Denny's. Breakfast all day, dinners after 5, burgers and sandwiches as well. Okay food, but nothing o go out of my way to get.

Great place for old fashion diner food. Large servings of biscuits and gravy, hot sandwiches and burgers/fries. Always good and friendly service. Chain is growing up and down the state.

We hoped for a nice breakfast as we visited Hanford for the day, a couple of days after Christmas. What we got was a surly, young hostess and a non-existent waitress. Someone asked for our beverage order and disappeared for 20 minutes. We walked out...More
