Lovely Las Vegas: Black Bear Diner

Black Bear Diner
6180 West Tropicana Avenue - Las Vegas, Nevada 89103-4604
(702) 368-1077
Location: between Jones & Torrey Pines

Within the urban Las Vegas desert resides a cozy little cabin called the Black Bear Diner.

Inside, Black Bear is spoken.
Had I known, I would have brought a translation dictionary...

Luckily, the newspaper menus were available in English.

I went to this diner to meet up for brunch with some friend.
There was quite a large selection of breakfast items and dinner meals.
There were three carnevores among us - here is what they ate:


Ribs with a double side of veggies (and a large side of fries)

The country steak...

Here are the more veggie-grain-centric meals:

A huge, huge stack of nutty, granola pancakes

Waffles loaded with whip cream and strawberries

The Shasta omelette (basically a veggie omelet with avocado)

I, unfortunately, gobbled up my meal before realizing there was habanero sauce lurking around the corner!
It would have been a perfect pairing for my eggs...

The big homemade biscuit that one can order instead of toast.
It was okay tasting, but kind of crumbled apart, making it a bit difficult to eat, not to mention add butter to.

Overall, I like the cozy vibe of Black Bear Diner, especially accompanied by friends and family.
The food is definitely diner-style, kind of reminescent of what you might find on a road trip.
Nothing too fancy or delicate, but decent grub to fill the belly with. As for my omelette, I quite enjoyed it and definitely would be back, at least to give the habanero hot sauce a try!

Those servings are giant! I'd be sharing with someone or taking the leftovers home. But I'd definitely enjoy the omelette. :)

Hi Jules, we eat at the Black Bear Diner in Susanville, California whenever we are on a road trip to Oregon! I've never been to the one here in Vegas.
