Miami >Hungry Bear Sub Shop
Survivng and thriving..
My parents took me to Hungry Bear every Sunday after church when I was growing up. I'm only 23 now, but as an adult, I still find myself pulling into that familiar parking lot ever so often. The food is fantastic and quick, the staff are friendly, and the sheer smell that seems to hover around the store makes your mouth water before you've opened the door.
But I have to be honest here. It's not as good as it used to be. I work in a restaurant myself, and have noticed they cut corners similar to the ones my place of work has suffered. It's not without reason, though. Small businesses feel the weight of a sagging economy far more than any individual does, and they've done an exemplary job of maintaining most of their high standards.
I guess I can put it this way: Yeah, they're not as good as they used to be. But 95 out of 100 is still damn delicious.
Not as good as it was.
Have patronized as long as it's been in this location. Last few years, it reeks from too many shortcuts. Still very good but nowhere near as good as it used to be. In the past, we brought out-of -town visitors there and they rave also.
Last 3 or 4 times, it seems to me that the focus is more on speed than flavor. My steak and onion sub with everything but mustard and cheese was barely warm. Had to search to find the peppers. They totally forgot about oregano and were definitely chintzy with the onions, oil and vinegar (if they used it at all.) I also requested to not cut it and they did it anyway.
Bear (ha ha) in mind, that there were only two other people in there when I went so it wasn't like the CC lunch jam.
Somebody needs to address these issues or you will see business falling off at a rapid place cause you aren't cheap.
the best cheesesteak in miami!!!. the best CheeseSteak in miami so far... Fast service, Fresh ingredients!!! wish they were more organized.. around 10 bucks for a sub, chips and can of soda...
Ive eatin at just about every sub shop in miami and hungry bear is by far the best! Dont be intimidated by a long line, they work like a finely tuned machine! Theres Simply no comparison!. Like the other reviews say, there is no indoor seating, but the hungry bear provides benches outside with partial shade during certain times of the year. You wont be let down. You can sit on cold concrete and still enjoy these subs! Take my word for it ive been eating them since i was 8 years old and now im 33 so obviously the are doing something great!
Great Subs - try the turkey & bacon or cheesesteak.
It was tough - 4 or 5 stars. I gave it a 5 although there is no indoor seating which is my only complaint. Okay, two complaints. They should take credit cards too. Who carries cash? Anyway, on to the subs. The cheesesteak is freak'n awesome and will give Philly a run for their money. Geno's and Pat's would have to watch out. I'm big and trying to eat a little lighter so I've eating the Turkey and Bacon. The hot sub is great and they've been getting right long before Quizno's showed up.
A great local's place. Go there and chow down. Enjoy.
User review by mysticcobra. Best sub shop EVER! CheeseSteak is #1 in my book! Fast & friendly service, take out only. Fresh ingredients, highly recommend!!!
Best subs. If you want an extensive variety of subs, made fresh and quick, Hungry Bear is what you are looking for. There is no seating, it is strictly takeout, but well worth it. The subs are reasonably priced (about $7) and so good!
