Always get a rack or two ribs to go. Throw in some potato salad and greens. A family go to every other month. Too far!! Come to Laveen!

We just returned from a week in North Carolina, and whined that all we did was fine-dining, and had missed most of our BBQ fix points. OK, we had one BBQ lunch, which was mildly disappointing, but we pined for Carolina BBQ. My wife stopped by Honey Bears (we have been clients for well over a decade), and picked up... More

I had relatives visiting from Texas and before they left I suggested we try Honey Bears BBQ as I had heard good things about it being great BBQ. To say that we were disappointed might be an understatement. To start, the cashier taking our order was less than friendly or helpful. We had several questions about the menu and what... More

I have eaten barbecue all over America – – how great, I thought, that this was right down the road from me. I couldn't of been more wrong. On a recent visit, my first, I opted for several of the meat only selections and my colleague had a sandwich. In each of the meat selections there was no less than... More

I like to go to the Honey Bears at 5012 E East Van Buren in Phoenix. You get plenty to eat and I've never been disappointed. Always very tender and tasty With plenty of sides to choose from.

*Food was good-meat was good on the slider, bottom bun soaking wet *Portion size very good *Staff not too friendly but by no means rude *Price a little too high *So flipping hot in there it was not pleasant :( We weren't so disappointed that we walked out angry or anything but it was oppressively hot in there.

We ordered 2 pulled pork sandwiches at 10.49 each. The pork was tough, dry and the bottom bun was very soggy. We also ordered 2 mac and cheese and it had no flavor and the noodles were mushy. The most disappointing was the peach cobbler, it was just cooked canned peaches and NO crust...that's the best part. We ended up... More

Good portions, average price, but quality was a bit underwhelming. My colleagues, however, loved this place and wanted to return. Adequate option for the are, but I'd look further next time.
