Only BBQ shop around here

Not a lot of bbq shop around this section of the valley, I only know of 3 up here, but its really good. Super friendly service and not a very long weight.

An all-around great place. With saw dust on the floor you feel like you’re in the right place. If you’re anywhere even close to Bear Pit you have to give it a try. Everything is freshly made and taste just right. Don’t even get me started on the garlic toast!

Best BBQ ever. Great food and prices. Our family has been eating here since Max Bear opened it 45 plus years ago. Excellent service. I highly recommend the Bear Pit Special on Garlic toast, the beans are the best I've ever had, great Cole slaw. You won't be disappointed. Their BBQ sauce is to die for. We moved to OC in 76 and still make trips out to the valley every month or so.

It was meh

I had lunch here while visiting from Chicago and had an OK experience. The staff was friendly and took care of us the entire meal, but what's with the sawdust on the ground? Is that how BBQ is done in the West? Anywho, I got the spare ribs which were a little dry, but that was easily fixed by throwing on some of their BBQ sauce.\r Overall, I'd say the food was OK, but not great. I've had better BBQ in Chicago to... view more

The Bear Pit's Good if You Like Boiled Ribs!

I didn't feel ilke cooking for Labor Day so we decided to get some food at ""The Bear Pit"". Upon entering the place the staff was extremely friendly and when I tasted the ribs I thought, ""They'd better be!"". We ordered the ""Hungry Bear Delight"" with cole slaw, deep fried taters, Bar-B-Q beans, and garlic toast. My husband ordered the Bar-B-Q ham sandwich with fries and beans. The beans were absolutely delicious,... view more

Bear Pit a Genuine Pit

So, this is barbeque at it's best? This place serves some of the worst barbeque I have ever had. Small portions at gargantuan prices for mediocre food does not make great barbeque. And those potato balls, what in the hell are those unedible things? I feel sorry for anyone who can give this place more than 1 star, they really must be deprived. I highly recommend finding a better barbeque restaurant as this one ... view more
