A trip to the Black Cat is always a treat! Generously filled burritos. Yummy queso. And the Jerk Chicken Tacos... oh my word! Sooo good!

We love trying little hole in the wall places and this is definitely one of them. The food was different but good if you like Tex Mex. And you must try the fried Brussel sprouts they are banging.

Stopped in for a late afternoon meal and couldn't have been more pleased with the service or food offerings. Anything you want to build a burrito, they have it! All of the ingredients were super fresh and delicious. Will definitely go again when I'm back in town!

We enjoyed our return visit to the Black Cat very much. The burritos are huge and delicious and the dining room has a lot of personality.

In addition to this place being a 'hole in the wall', the food kind of sucked also. Paid $18 for 2 burritos, mine was awful.
