Location: place is so teeny and in a such sketchy part of town (backside of VCU Seigel ctr area), be prepared to ride past several times before you finally spot it. Restaurantbecause: inside maybe has 5 tables, super small & super tight restaurant. The table are nearly on top of one another. I don't believe they have central air/heat so... More

The Black Sheep is exactly what you would expect for a RVA restaurant. Funky, fun and quaint. Parking is a major issue during the week, since it is located near VCU. The restaurant is tiny. Grab a window seat and relax and share a sub. The menu is descriptive and unique, definitely not your average sub fare. I would recommend... More

I am not saying it was bad, it was decent...It just fell very short of the hype. This is a very cute little quaint cafe in a college town, parking is impossible,and you play frogger with all the dumb college kids on bikes who dont seem to remember that car beats bike any day in a crash. They werent busy,... More

Stopped by here since my friend had heard such good things about this place and it was jam packed with people. I wanted to place an order to take out, and didn't know what to order, so I asked the waitress for a recommendation. She suggested the USS Congress and I thought it was good, but not knock your socks... More

We have eaten here on several occasions and have never had a bad meal!!! My favorite is the USS Brooklyn sub----amazing!! Very spicy, so if you like spice go for it!! Also try the dark chocolate Creme Brûlée-wowzer, be prepared to wait during peak times, a cozy little place to eat with limited seating. Worth the wait though!

Black Sheep subs are something you have to try to understand. I tried the USS Congress 12 inch sub which I shared. Wow really tasteful and I can tell you but just try it yourself. We had three other subs on the table and I tried all of them. I am bringing my family here to show them the best... More

Most unusual food-long, long sandwiches. All food was cooked in the kitchen you could pass on the way to the restrooms. So small and out of the way, but, packed until closing time.

My hubby and I go on date nights every week- this was a pleasant surprise. Limited menu selections, but done extremely well. I got the USS Wabash done over a salad and it was cooked, seasoned, and dressed extremely well. The only complaint we had was my husband arguing that the logo looks like a cow....food was great. Would love... More
