This small, eclectic place in the center of Provo offers southwestern cuisine. It serves inventive Mexican dishes with an added Native American element. In addition, it has a liquor license, rare in this Mormon state. For dinner, we enjoyed the frybread with honey and sweet...More

Having been in meetings all day and just looking to grab a quick meal we stepped into the Black sheep cafe and boy were we glad, the burger was fantastic and something called a pork jowl taco was unbelievable.

Go there for a treat. Fry bread for buns on specialty burger. Great green (verde) sauce on dishes. Thick sweet potato fries. All delicious! BUT, expensive. Burger are $15, mind you they are specialty burgers with bacon and caramelized onions, blue cheese etc.

Black Sheep Café serves Navajo-inspired food, and it is good. The service can be slow, but the wait is well worth it. Have a drink and visit with your friends while you wait. The staff is knowledgable and friendly. The food is quite good.
