Best meal in Utah

Who would have guessed our best meal for a 5 day road trip in Utah would be in Provo? Even all the tourists in Moab don't seem to attract this level of casual sophistication in food creation,and at very reasonable prices. It's #1 on the restaurant listings for Provo for good reason.

The food is some of the best around. My wife had the pasta which she said was delicious. I had the buffalo nickel burger and my daughter had the Hog Jowl Tacos. The food was sooo good. The presentation is beautiful. Some of the best around. The ambiance is fun. The prices are a little high for everyday eating but... More

We love Black Sheep Cafe and continue to go back whenever we travel through. It has a modern, artsy vibe. Dimly lit, great for conversation. Make sure to get a reservation, especially on the weekends as it gets filled up quickly. The food is so good and filling! Navajo tacos are delicious; my husband's Navajo side of the family really...

Their blue cheese and bacon burger is superb. The atmosphere is is nice and it is in a fun location. Parking can be a bit tricky but is doable. The Cactus Pear Drink is really good along with their Sweet Potato Fries and Corn Cob.

Look, Hog Jowls do NOT sound good. The Hog Jowls Tacos, were amazing!!! The Cactus Lemonade was perfect, and the Fries were OK too. My Fire Shrimp was OK, not great but pretty darn good. Only thing that was not great, the Diet Pepsi was flat. Unusual for such a high end place. The Fries were quite nice,

I had googled places to eat in Provo - After a 10 hour drive we were hungry!! I saw the menu at the Black Sheep and it reminded me of home. American Indian Mexican Food. Mark, the owner and chef has a delicious menu!!

My husband and I were very pleasantly surprised by the uniqueness and quality of the food at Black Sheep Cafe. I had the Navajo Tea sweetened which was delicious and the stew was fantastic along with a side order of fry bread. My husband had a salad which he really enjoyed. I would recommend this place to anyone and I... More

I was not expecting to pay $19 for a burger that was mediocre at best. The Navajo taco was also disappointing. So small and the fry bread was soggy because of the amount of sauce on the meat. It was also $19 for bland miniature taco. Waitress was pleasant and the French fries were yummy. We won't ever return.
