Stopped in for a late afternoon meal and couldn't have been more pleased with the service or food offerings. Anything you want to build a burrito, they have it! All of the ingredients were super fresh and delicious. Will definitely go again when I'm back in town!

We enjoyed our return visit to the Black Cat very much. The burritos are huge and delicious and the dining room has a lot of personality.

In addition to this place being a 'hole in the wall', the food kind of sucked also. Paid $18 for 2 burritos, mine was awful.

A good selection of creative burritoes. You will not leave hungry. A good beer selection as well. Quick if the lines aren't too long.

The food is good, and they also offer Gluten Free options. If they are busy, which they usually are, plan to wait just a bit longer than what one might expect.

Always love going to Black Cat when we're in Boone. I usually opt for nachos with black beans, guacamole, sour cream, and tomatillo salsa and am never disappointed. Haven't tried their beer but they have a pretty extensive list.

My wife and daughter and I stopped in for an afternoon snack. We had the Ragin Cajun burrito along with a guacamole and chips. It was good. We really enjoyed it.

It's been 15 years since I was last here. In some sense, lots have changed. Instead of eating here with roommates and college friends, I'm here with my wife and kids. Instead of eating anything I want, I have to watch my waistline. But the food is what I remember. They still have my favorite burrito, and it is still... More

We had lunch at Black Cat today and they had the best fish tacos I have ever had! It was funny to eat better fish tacos in the mountains than the beach! My husband had nachos with chicken and they were delicious too! I can't wait to go back the next time we go to Boone!

Thank jen j
