Serves meat, vegan options available. Contemporary Southwestern Native American cuisine that's predominately meat but vegetarians could have the portobello burger, navajo taco, fries (ask if same fryer). Has cactus pear lemonade. Vegans should specify as honey and dairy is used. The menu draws from the Navajo, Hidatsa, Hopi, and Mandan tribes. Hip vibe with a silversmith shop off the side of the restaurant. Tue-Sat 11:30am-3:00pm, Tue-Thu 5:00pm-9:00pm, Fri-Sat 5:00pm-10:00pm

First Review by Meggie and Ben

Not many options, but delicious - Edit

I was a disappointed that there weren't many vegetarian options. They weren't listed on the menu at all -- I had to get up to ask the hostess and she just told me what they were: 1) zucchini/squash or cheese enchiladas, and 2) meatless Navajo taco. Apparently the portobello burger is only offered for lunch.

That being said, the food was AMAZING. It was pricey -- the zucchini/squash enchiladas were the same price as their meaty counterparts -- but it was some of the best food I've had in Utah Valley. The sauce on the enchiladas was divine, the cilantro rice was heavenly, and the refried beans were very tasty (although I could have done with a little less cheese). I might have to go back to check out the Navajo tacos someday.

Pros: delicious food

Cons: pricey, no veg menu, few options

Black Sheep - Edit

I've been down to Black Sheep a few times since they've opened. The ambiance in the restaurant is really great, and they have really nice staff, but what is and isn't entirely vegan is a little bit harder to figure out. The staff isn't very competent on the subject. The Navajo Taco is really great, but you have to be sure to ask for vegan beans, the regular ones are cooked with meat. Also I have dreams about the prickly pear vinaigrette, probably my favorite thing on the menu. Prices are a little high, but are very reasonable for lunch.

Great for vegetarians, not so much for vegans - Edit

Black Sheep Cafe has quite a few vegetarian options.

Though the menu says some vegetarian options can be made vegan, vegan options are limited and the staff doesn't know hardly anything about vegan diets. The portobello burger wasn't good at all and was served between two tortillas with no sauce. The Navajo taco was pretty good, and the cactus pear lemonade is delicious.

The staff seems to know little about vegan diets and wasn't sure what was and wasn't vegan. They went to ask the staff multiple times about different things.

Pros: Interesting cuisine

Cons: Not so good for vegans, Staff not very knowledgeable
