“Big sandwiches and big satisfaction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

Theres so much thats good about the Black Sheep in an area populated mostly by students trying to eat on the cheap. The menu is creative and different, and full of great options for every meal. The beer list has awesome selections, and the sandwiches? Chock full of fresh ingredients, the brimming two-foot baguettes easily fill two hungry diners without emptying their wallets. The dining room is small and cozy, so reservations are critical for all but the most unusual times. Other reviewers complained about apathetic or rude service-we had no issues in the least. We didnt make new BFFs, but we werent expecting that. We expected a good meal with good recommendations, and left satisfied in every regard.

“Awesome subs!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

First off subs are huge!!! My wife and two friends went for dinner. The subs are full of flavor, and we all tried something different. Half of sandwich is plenty for one person; no sides needed. Great place, good ambiance and friendly staff.

“Best Restaurant Breakfast Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

Don't expect typical bacon and eggs. This place has some authentically original as well as New Orleans inspired breakfasts. It is Tony " the Tiger" GGGGGreat!

“Best Sandwich!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

We visited this place after seeing it featured on a "Best of" show. The place is a little difficult to find because it's tucked away on a side street. We got there right when the restaurant opened and it stayed busy from the get go. Very small place but quaint. The service was great. Servers were very accommodating as we had a large party. These sandwiches are HUGE! But, these aren't your average Subway sandwich. My sandwich was a chipotle pork with a peach chutney. MmMmgood!!! Everyone had different subs, but I'll have to say mine was the best! Kind of pricey. But, if you do like we did, we all ordered different subs & sampled. It was definitely well worth it!
