Our first meal here was yesterday 100817. We had the pulled pork (not the sandwich), slaw, baked beans, ribs, mashed sweet potatoes (extra good), and cornbread. Everything was delicious. Good service, and everyone was helpful getting us oriented and finding things on our first visit. We'll definitely return.

They are now located a block north at 25 Front St, Hartford, CT 06103.

We came here as a group of 7, so I got to try at least a little bit of everything. I can say right off to skip the macho nachos. This was the only negative of the 7 different meals and it happened to be mine. They fry the nachos so they are incredibly soggy with no crunch. The toppings added actually lack flavor, which is surprising given how loaded up it was.

Other then the macho nachos, everything else was fantastic. The peach cobbler dessert was a surprise hit. This is well worth a stop if you are in the area.

The brisket here is great, highly recommend. Fun atmosphere, close to other downtown hotels and locations. Reasonably priced.

If your looking for good bbq without going down south this is the place. Very helpful & nice staff, Moinks are AWESOME !! Cafeteria style service so don't go here expecting it to be a sit down service type restaurant. Get's very busy Saturday 5-8 pm.

If you are seeking a savory, hickory taste of BBQ, then you have come to the right place! I have been two locations and both are wonderful. Either minutes from the airport or located in the downtown area, Bear's is a great eatery.
