in the High Country since 2000


Black Cat Burrito has over 15 years of experience slinging the chubbiest fatty's in the High Country. We offer the best damn Burritos, Tacos, and Quesadillas in town. Our nachos, chilis, soups and specials will knock your socks off!

You can't have mouth watering burritos without a frosty cold beverage, so we have you covered with a great selection of beers, wine, and mixed drinks. Our infamous key lime margaritas push this Mexican cuisine over the edge. But, no one will judge if you just want to get down and dirty with one of our favorites, Pabst Blue Ribbon. 

We are more than a rad restaurant and bar, we also entertain with our one of a kind live music experiences. Our passion for good music motivates us to feature crazy good bands that will keep you moving. 

All Black Cat food is made to order, from scratch, using only the freshest ingredients.

We offer a relaxed, no-fuss environment to eat unique southwest-fusion style food at reasonable prices.

Exposed brick walls, large windows, two defined sitting areas, fun lighting and unique tables, offer a modern, retro style experience nestled in this small mountain town.  

Place your order with us at the bar and take a vintage toy to help us find you when your order is ready. Waitresses are on hand to bring your food and to help with any additional questions or needs you may have.

Prices range but we try to keep main dishes under ten bucks, typically in the eight-fifty range. 

We pack a lot of love into our food.  From rollin’ genre-bending burritos to choppin’ slaw, or fryin’ up crispy, thin tortilla chips; we make sure our food is fresh, fast, enticing and delicious.

About us

Black Cat Burrito (the concept) started taking shape way back in 1998. Megan Carmody and her, then husband, Roland Knoll, were both working in the food industry in Atlanta GA.  Megan was a recent graduate from George Tech and had landed a job at Sweet Water Brewing Company. They both worked in the food industry since high school and knew it well. They both loved their work but were itching to get out of Atlanta and had dreams of starting their own restaurant.  

After several drinks and late nights scheming with a few close friends, dreams of opening a burrito joint began to take shape.  One of these friends lived in Boone and encouraged them to bring their ideas, style and food experience to the High Country. After a few visits, they were hooked.

 What is now Black Cat Burrito was built and designed entirely by Megan, Roland and a bunch of dedicated friends. The enormous task of turning an empty storefront into the Boone institution paid off when Black Cat Burrito opened on September 26th, 2000. 

No advertising, no grand opening, no signs, nothing…  just word of mouth, an open door and some damn good food, brought the masses.

Part luck, part timing, A LOT of hard work, and a whole lot of kick-ass food made Black Cat a success from day one!

Megan remains the owner of Black Cat Burrito today. She is committed to serving amazing food, offering great service and, of course, to keeping the original badass vibe of Black Cat Burrito alive and well.
