We had their breakfast and it was awesome. The bacon, sausage and ham were superb. Eggs and potatoes were perfect. Highly recommended this restaurant.

Robert is an incredibly efficient manager. We had a 30 box breakfast ordered fir carry out ánd the food was warm timely and perfectly organized. The food was off genesis portions ánd extremely tasty. He went out of his way to make this special event perfect for us. I Express my gratitude deeply ánd sincerely. I should highly recommend BBDiner in Visalia but also recommend Mr. Velasquez
For sunny special event catering. I should hire him in a heartbeat simply due to his thoroughness and efficiency. Superb!

We stumbled upon the Black Bear Diner in Visalia, CA while driving back from Sequoia National Park. Tired and weary from hiking in the heat all day, we stopped here for dinner. OMG! The food was delicious, just like homemade. The pot roast was tender and seasoned just right, the bacon cheeseburger was perfect, the chicken fried steak and hand breaded crispy chicken breast were equally delicious. The desserts are huge so we ordered 2 to share among 4 people. Cherry crisp and the caramel bread pudding with ice cream. Both were wonderful. If we're back in the area again, we'll certainly stop at the Black Bear Diner. I understand this is a chain in the western states. If you're looking for some good, stick to your ribs, home style food, this is the place!

This is a very popular restaurant with good reason,so there will be a bit of a wait. The food was well prepared and the coffee was good. It is a family restaurant,so it can be a bit on the noisy side. That should not be a deterrent though. Seeing families enjoying a meal together ❤ is always a good thing.
