We go to Provo once a month to have lunch with our son at a place none of us have ever been before. Yesterday was that day and I read reviews and found the Black Sheep Cafe. It was a great lunch. My husband and son had the Bleu Cheese Burger with Rosemary Fries and the Black Sheep Burger with... More

The waitress was great and explained her favorites on the menu. I ordered the pork jowl taco ($22) and a salad with a cactus dressing ($9). Both were very tasty and I was full. Nonetheless, I got an order of frybread ($4), which comes with honey butter, and it was terrific and I was more than full.

We went as a family to eat. We had never been here before. It was really good. They serve Southwestern style Native American food. I got a breakfast burrito and other members of our family ordered different versions of Navajo Tacos. We also ordered some Basil Fries and some Sweet Potato fries as an appetizer. You have to try the... More

We checked the place out the night before, and were told that several of the dishes could be made vegetarian, so we returned and enjoyed a delicious dinner of enchiladas. They were carefully flavoured and beautifully presented and the staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely eat here again if we were in town.

Easily the best brunch I've ever had. Visited on a Sunday afternoon, and enjoyed the carnitas hash and biscuits in gravy. Both were superb, and a lovely compliment to one another - the carnitas being hearty but on the lighter side, and the biscuits in gravy rich and spicy. Service was lovely and attentive.

A great little cafe in downtown Provo. We were seated promptly our waitress Haley was great. We ordered the specials Pork Jowl nachos and the filet tacos both were amazing. The meal was pricey but worth it.

All expectation were meet and exceeded. Had the surf and turf special and it was amazing! This is my second time here and plan on a return trip next month. If you like southwest with a gourmet twist this place is for you!

I've eaten at Black Sheep twice and their food and service was really good both times. The inventive dishes are all in a Southwestern theme. Things are flavored with discretion and no spice owns the dish, but rather multiple flavors and textures interact. Portions are fair but not bounteous.

This is currently the best place to eat in the Provo/Orem area. I had the Chimi-rellano and it was, by far, the best thing I have ever eaten. Service is a bit slow, but they make up for it in the quality of food.
