Don’t feel like cooking but want a home-cooked meal? Black Bear Diner has you covered!

Don’t feel like cooking tonight? I had the opportunity to receive a Family Meal from the Black Bear Diner in Torrance and my family was quite impressed! Black Bear Diner has locations throughout California and is currently offering curbside and delivery service of the new Family Meals to make family life easier.

They have quite a variety of meal choices for either breakfast. lunch or dinner. I chose to try the Chicken Fried Steak Family Meal and it was delicious! It’s perfect for a family of 3 or 4 people and included 4 Bear Paw Chicken Fried Steaks with country gravy, 4 housemade cornbread muffins, and a choice of 2 sides. I chose the Mashed Potatoes and the Seasonal Veggies!

This was absolutely delicious!

Black Bear Diner’s specially priced Family Meals are hearty, home-style food for the whole family – including breakfast (helping remote working parents during busy mornings.) Family Meals include Bacon, Eggs & Pancakes and Roasted Turkey Dinner and serve 3-4. You can find the options on their website here: https://blackbeardiner.com/.

I’m looking forward to trying one of their breakfast Family Meals soon! But, I really recommend their Chicken Fried Steak Family Meal which is $34.99. And, their chocolate cake is absolutely divine!

Don’t forget to order a slice of the Chocolate Cake! It’s big enough for 2!

You can find Black Bear Diner locations here.

Looking for a delicious Burger to try this weekend? The Habit Burger Grill has you covered! Their New French Onion Charburger is absolutely delicious! But, you have to hurry because it is only available for a short time! I usually go for their Veggie Burger or one of their salads but this sounded interesting and so I just had to try it! My favorite thing about it is the sweet caramelized onions and the two perfectly delicious and crisp golden onion rings. It is served on a toasted sesame seed bun, with fresh shredded lettuce and tomato. This one is definitely a must-try!

And, don’t forget to try my other favorite.. the Tempura Green Beans! I simply can not go to the Habit Burger Grill without ordering this delicious side.

 Better burgers are just the beginning at The Habit where the menu also includes hand-cut salads, grilled sandwiches including line-caught, sushi grade ahi tuna, fresh chicken, and hand-filleted marinated grilled tri-tip, and sides including onion rings, sweet potato and French fries, and tempura green beans. Guests can choose from a variety of peppers, lemons, limes, and sauces at a complimentary condiment bar to customize the flavor of their meal.

The Habit is known for its award-winning Charburger which features 100% fresh, never frozen ground beef grilled over an open flame and topped with melted cheese, caramelized onions, pickles, fresh tomato, crisp lettuce, and mayo served on a toasted bun. Their restaurants have been serving the Best Tasting Burger in America exactly this way since the first Habit opened in 1969.

The Habit Burger Grill Continues Fight to Help End Childhood Hunger in America For the Fourth Year, The Habit Will Offer a Free Charburger with Cheese for Donations of $2 or More To No Kid Hungry

The Habit Restaurant, Inc. (Nasdaq: HABT) is continuing its commitment to help end childhood hunger in America by partnering with No Kid Hungry for a fourth year.

One in six kids in the U.S. lives with hunger. The Habit Burger Grill, together with its loyal guests, is committed to changing this. Now through the end of September, The Habit will be collecting donations for No Kid Hungry. Guests who donate $2 or more to the No Kid Hungry campaign will receive a free Charburger with cheese certificate, good on a return visit through October 2, 2018.

To help raise awareness about childhood hunger, No Kid Hungry is launching the Hunger Can’t Wait tour, which will travel to five cities across the country, hosting special events from August 28 to September 17. The Habit will kick off the tour on August 28 with an event at its El Segundo, Calif. restaurant.

Over the past four years, The Habit has raised over $1 million for the No Kid Hungry campaign, providing millions of meals for kids across the country.

“The sense of urgency around childhood hunger remains high, and that’s why it’s important to us to support No Kid Hungry. We are proud to have helped provide millions of nutritious meals to kids in need,” said Russ Bendel, CEO of The Habit Burger Grill.

Since 2010, No Kid Hungry and its partners have provided children across the country with more than 775 million meals. For more information, visit NoKidHungry.org. The public can join the conversation on social using #HungerCantWait.

And, if you rather have salad then you just have to try the Habit’s hand-breaded Golden Fried Chicken Salad. Inspired by the Golden Fried Chicken Sandwich, the Golden Fried Chicken Salad features the Habit’s golden chicken, hand-dipped twice into house-made seasoned flour and buttermilk, before being fried to perfection and custom made to order for both the salad and the sandwich.

I had the opportunity to try this one and I loved it! It’s fresh and I love the golden fried chicken!
