This is a restaurant I may not have walked into on my own, but I was with a group and one member of our party had eaten there and recommended it. It turned out to be a great choice! Five on Black has many options to build your own rice bowl-- choose the meat, the sauce, the veggies, and the... More

Five on Black is a really fun place! I loved the atmosphere and the staff was really friendly. Super quick but much better than any fast food. Great place for college students!

Good portion sizes, not too much nor too little. Lots of healthy options, and the steamed collards were good: not overcooked. However, with so many sauce options, the flavors became jumbled and overwhelming. The mango BBQ sauce was cloyingly sweet. Maybe the spicy coconut sauce would be better. Maybe a couple suggested combinations would help people avoid ordering clashing flavors.... More

Not impressed. Food was ok for lunch line type service. Seems modeled after the chipotle chain restaurant model. Quaint place. Not on my regular rotation to go to or recommend.

Having never been to Brazil, I have no idea if the decor of the restaurant is ethnically accurate or not, and I KNOW the music is not Brazilian, but the food is quite tasty, and very reasonably-priced as well. I've eaten here probably 4-5 times since some students introduced it to me on a day we were out to community... More

My son had eaten here before and brought me for lunch. Very informal 'cafeteria style' ordering, simple menu done well. Flavors and portions are outstanding, you can get a regular bowl and it will feed you all day! I've returned once already this month.

I came for dinner with the couple I was staying with. They recommended it and I really wasn't sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised with how delicious AND filling it was! I'm not a huge fan of coconut or mango but I tried the options anyways and absolutely loved it. As I write this review I find myself... More

I love that I can go somewhere that is good, but also reasonably healthy. I can eat gluten free, spicy and low low carbs with amazing taste! I would chose to eat here even if i wasnt trying to eat healthy..its that good.

5 on Black is a nice little restaurant. You walk in and choose what you would like in your bowl. It's pretty straightforward. Everything is a pretty healthy choice, so that is really nice. The price is excellent! Would visit here again when in Missoula!
