When we found out Black Bear was first coming to Milpitas, my wife & I were ecstatic. For years we drove to Gilroy because of the fast service, awesome food, and exemplary customer service. We were not disappointed nor have been with our Milpitas location....More

Right off the main road in Milpitas, Ca. Calaveras Boulevard, with lots of parking. They have an outstanding menu, smaller meals for the little ones, and hearty meals for us grown-ups. My wife and I ordered the big bear burger, all I can say is,...More

The food and service here were about what I've come to expect at other BBD's - friendly service and good food in large quantities. Recommended if you don't mind a raucous atmosphere when large families are present with screaming children, like it was today.

We love their food. Especially their corned beef and pancakes. What we love most is their service though. Dee Dee made our day! She is the absolute best. Their food is great but she is what will keep us coming back. Also their habanero sauce.
