Review of Black Bear Diner

9510 Farm to Market 1960 Bypass Rd W, Humble, TX 77338

Overall Rating


Before I had to cut gluten, my husband and I would eat here a good bit. I love their salmon, and he loves their pancakes and breakfast options.

The gluten-free options are buns for the burgers and balsamic vinaigrette. To err on the safe side, I ordered the pesto salmon with green beans, mashed potatoes (no gravy), and the balsamic vinaigrette dressing for my salad (GF indicated on the menu). They brought the cornbread on a separate plate, and my husband ate it (the waitress said they did not have a GF roll as an option). All of the burgers have a GF bun option for $1. Our dinner tasted excellent (as always). I wouldn’t mind coming back for a burger sometime.

As far as breakfast items go, I wouldn’t feel confident dining here. My takeaway from this restaurant is they aren’t as cautious with cross-contamination in regard to gluten.
