So much has changed from shopping to eating out. We can no longer sit down at restaurants until quarantine is lifted and stores limit who can come inside in most cases. It makes me wonder what we will indeed need to get used to for a long while.
I feel like ordering food will become a new norm. Restaurants have already started keeping up wit the changes and are working hard to keep their employees working by enticing customers with pick up and delivery options. Black Bear Diner (popular on the West Coast and parts of the midwest) have locations that will deliver or pick up!
I had the opportunity to try some menu options they have available. To start, they now have New Family Meals. These are portions meant for multiple people to share and we experienced the Chicken Fried Steak (our son’s favorite) and Chicken Strip meals. If you are a chicken strip fan, you will LOVE Black Bear Diner’s strips!
We ordered with a variety of sides and even tried a few desserts. The condiments were all thrown in so they sent a variety of dressings, butter, etc. It was everything we needed to a filling dinner.
With our order of 2 Family Meals and a few desserts, we had some left over and we are 4 adults and 1 tween. It was greatly portioned. All the food was warm and fresh. The one exception was I did throw the fries into our air fryer oven a moment to reheat but fries just don’t travel well no matter where you order from and I always reheat mine anyway. Even the fresh veggies were perfect and still hot.
One thing Black Bear Diner is known for is the Bear Claw and it was so fresh and delicious. The other desserts we had were the Banana Cream Pie and 5 Layer Chocolate Cake.
