Still the same great food for great prices that I remember as a kid growing up in Oregon. The atmosphere isn't quite as cozy as they used to be, but at least we don't have to deal with smoking sections anymore either!

Echo the Black Bear Diner a few times every year. Their food is good tasting, their prices are about $8-$10 a plate. However, you do get a lot of food for your dollar! I am a hungry hippo and today I had to box my...More

I ordered their salmon, which had no flavor. Also extra vegetables and when they came, they were so cold and not even steamed! Just raw vegetables thrown on our plates. Huge chunks of carrots and big pieces of broccoli. Never had a bad meal at...More

Sitting at the edge of Orem’s newly refurbished University Mall and just minutes from BYU’s Provo campus, this diner makes the perfect stop for shoppers, game-goers, and families. Our spacious dining area will accommodate large groups while our teams provide the small town, personalized service you’d expect from a hometown diner. We’re a little hidden on the southeastern side of the University Mall parking lot (800 E and University Parkway) but well worth the hunt.
