Bear's Journey

Bear was a fun-loving, good ol’ boy, a cherished black lab mix, and man’s best friend to founders Todd and Liz Carey—also affectionally called “Uncle Bear” by the Carey’s three nieces. Back in the day, this playful pup could be found cruising the college campus of Texas Tech University, body surfing Doggie Beach in San Diego, skiing down snow-capped mountains in New Mexico, and relaxing in the Hot Springs of Arkansas before making his home in the Valley of the Sun. 

 

Today, when you walk through the doors of Uncle Bear’s, you become part of our family’s story, a tale told best through the adventures of Bear and the lives of the canines whose photos line our walls. It’s a relaxing hangout surrounded by good people, great food, and our own locally brewed craft beer—the perfect recipe for acquaintances to become fast friends while dining with their pups on the patio. Uncle Bear’s has a place at the table for all walks of life, especially the four-legged, barking kind. So, "Come, Sit & Stay for a Doggone Good Time!"
