Service – Black Bear Diner had fair service. We had to flag down the waitress several times.
Verdict – Black Bear Diner is a popular restaurant due to its immense quantities of low cost food. Surprisingly we found to be decent! Look for a location in your area. Milpitas and Gilroy are the closest within the San Francisco Bay Area.

Black Bear Diner Shasta chili

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.
