Description: Our Mt. Shasta diner has the distinction of being where it all began. Who knew a little dream in a tiny town would expand and attract fans from eight (and counting) states? Through it all, this diner has held its own as a small but mighty gateway to this charming town. Just off the I-5, it feeds locals as well as visitors here to play at Lake Siskiyou or Mt. Shasta Ski & Snowboard Park.

This is the original Black Bear diner opening up in 1995. We tried to go there on Sunday morning but the place was jammed. Monday morning, we had breakfast, tasty with enormous portions. My wife and I split a Hobo breakfast that was huge. Our friends had eggs with chicken apple sausage and linquica, Way too much food but delicious.

The food here is really great. The servings are huge. The Taco salad could easily feed two. The wait staff was pleasant and attentive. We were with a large group of non English speaking people and the waitress handled it all with grace and patience.

Like their home style cooking. Had BBQ ribs which were good but my Denver Dip sandwich with cheese, onions & mushrooms was outstanding! Staff was extremely friendly. We took home the blackberry cobbler a la mode & the waitress put the ice cream scoop in a separate container from the pie. Didn't even have to ask her. Now that's customer service! Will probably stop in another one on our trip to Alaska.

This is a restaurant that has large portions and is not necessarily geared to the health conscious...Having said that, our food had generous amounts of food and tasted great! This is a fun family restaurant! The only problem we had was service. There were multiple employees sitting at the counter while there was a customer back-up at the entrance. This is not good because it looks like no one is managing the place! Also, the employees were all checking their cellphones, etc, and that seemed rude. Just a thought...........

I have modest expectations when I eat at a diner and this diner in Mt Shasta is no exception...we enjoy their food and particularly their handmade shakes and french fries...not a healthy meal per se, but quite comforting...also great that they have accessible hours of service. We live locally and definitely when we crave comfort food this eatery meets our needs.
