Honey Bear's BBQ

Our History

One of the most talked about BBQ joints in Phoenix, opened in the fall of 1986... Since that time Honey Bear’s has become a standard in Arizona BBQ. Known for its unwavering dedication to cooking barbecue the old fashion way (with wood), Honey Bear’s has stayed true to its roots. Serving the Valley for over 3 decades now, we have captured the hearts of food lovers and made Honey Bear’s Tennessee-style BBQ a recognizable brand that has changed the way Arizonians eat BBQ. Whether dining in, taking out, needing a delivery or full-service catering, we invite you to stop by soon to see why.

A word from the owner

"Quality and execution have always been at the core of what we do. We use top quality, thoughtfully source meat and products, apply a precise technique, and serve it simple and fresh. No bells and whistles. Just the best barbecue in Arizona. Bringing a great experience to our guests has been the most rewarding journey over the last 34 years. We’re excited to see what the next decade brings."
