This is a great place to eat in the campus corner area. Nice atmosphere in an older building. Food is imaginative and good. The pot roast nachos are fantastic. Wait staff is friendly and efficient. It is one of our go to places in Norman.

There were 12 of us so we pretty much ordered everything on the menu! Their queso is outstanding, salads, ruben, pizzas, etc were very tasty. Too bad our kid graduated OU or we would be back for sure!

Not being from Norman area, we have not discovered too many restaurants here. To our surprise, Blackbird was very good. Atmosphere, service, and food quality were top notch! I suggest the pot roast nachos or the pork chops.
