If this pizza parlor's gallery features more boa constrictor-handling than the galleries of most other restaurants, well, maybe that's to be expected. After all, The Bear's Den is located on the grounds of the Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch, a 126-acre, nonprofit wildlife reserve whose bears, zebras, and kangaroos will be recognized by Dirty Jobs viewers. While many visit because they're enchanted by the unique location, or to watch the bears from the dining deck, others are drawn to the The Bear's Den for its signature gourmet pizza. A full bar complements meals with beers, wine, and margaritas. Live music is performed on Thursday evenings and karaoke on Friday nights.
