BlackBear BBQ Blacktown
A backyard BBQ for everyone — as long as you're a meat eater.
July 01, 2023
With the Blacktown store having been around since 2017, Black Bear BBQ is the go to for beef brisket, pork belly and southern fried chicken in Sydney's west. With other locations in Wetherill Park and The Fitzroy Hotel, Black Bear has become something of a temple for barbecue lovers, with pilgrimages being made from all the far flung parts of Australia.
The menu at BlackBear is all mouth watering, wood smoked and locally sourced delights, cooked low and slow in the ironbark bbq for up to 15 hours. The Hungry Bear Box is the main attraction here, featuring brisket, pork belly, jalapeños and cheese and served up on slaw, potato crisps, housemate pickles and bbq sauce. We added some hot chips and a dose of chilli sauce for good measure and it didn't disappoint.
Black Bear's rolls are essentially glorified hot dogs which at certain times of the day is exactly what you need. The classic hot dog with jalapeños, cheese and house-made pickles was a winner, while the chilli dog was loaded with the nacho mix and a whole meal in itself. Speaking of nachos, it's not just wood-smoked brisket here — with the pulled brisket nachos, chicken wings, and range of burgers rounding out the menu.
The O.G Burger stars a beef brisket patty with American cheddar, tomato, onion, beetroot, lettuce and housemate pickles. If you swing by with a group of mates, then opt in for the Tradie Box, with two cheeseburgers, two fried chicken burgers, large chips and eight wings.
