Honey Bear's BBQ: Taste the Tradition

Honey Bear's BBQ: Taste the Tradition
Welcome to Honey Bear's BBQ, your go-to spot for lip-smacking, finger-licking Tennessee style BBQ right in the heart of Phoenix. Our story began in 1986, when founder, owner, pitmaster, Mark Smith embarked on a journey to share his passion for authentic, mouthwatering barbecue with the residents of Arizona. Armed with secret family recipes and a commitment to quality, Mark opened the doors of Honey Bear's... named after one secret ingredient and his childhood nickname.

I recently tried the honey bear BBQ from this restaurant and was blown away by the delicious flavors and tender meat. The ribs were fall-off-the-bone tender, and the sauce was a perfect balance of sweet and smoky. The sides were also top-notch, with the collard greens and macaroni and cheese being standout dishes. Again, the meat was cooked to perfection and the flavor was outstanding. The juicy chicken, succulent brisket, and smoky sausage all melted in my mouth with every bite. Overall, I will definitely be returning for more. If you're looking for authentic BBQ, I highly recommend this restaurant. You won't be disappointed

I have had Honey Bear cater on two occasions; the most recent on 8/26/22. Each time was great. The food came when they said, and was hot. Excellent quality and several different options. The portions were more than enough, and both times there was plenty for the guests to take home. Anna was easy to work with, friendly and got back with me when she said that she would. A-1 service.

It's been a pretty long time since I've been to Honey Bear's BBQ!... The food has not changed one bit and I'm extremely happy with my lunch today! I came in today, from the post office across the street (, it's been awhile since I've been down in Phoenix, I'm usually on the west valley but I couldn't fight the temptation to grab a pulled pork sandwich, mac & cheese & slice of peach cobbler pie! When I tell you that I was in heaven, I mean it! The owner was welcoming and as friendly as always, staff were nice and my food came out in a flash! If you haven't been to Honey Bear's Bbq you need to stop by and try their delicious food, they're a must try and an absolute gem of the Phoenix valley!
