Black Bear Diner Food Picks:
Cup of Chili with onion and cheese – Served with a Corn Bread Muffin – a good sized cup of decent chili.
Tri-Tip Dip – Seasoned tri-tip covered in grilled onions, mushrooms and Swiss cheese on our French roll with au jus – good sized portion of meat along with a fairly bland dipping sauce.
Bear Paw Chicken-Fried Steak – classic artery clogging dish with lots of gravy.
Kids Tri Tip – beautiful looking tri-tip. The adult version should be just as good.
Strawberry Pie – a rock hard crust, but a decent strawberry, whip cream filled interior.
