Our new favorite spur of the moment place for super good Mexican food, great service and cheap drinks. Their daily quesadilla and tamale specials are soooooooo good. Tonight salmon quesadilla and chorizo and corn tamales. AND super good cheese curds too! Everyone is super nice. The deck faces the ski hill with the building blocking the freeway noise. AND it's dog friendly! The server even brought our pooch treats. Highly recommend.

We got an email and also a post on Facebook about this restaurant. Had to try it out. Glad we did. It was slow on an early Sunday evening but pick up later. The restaurant is run by the owner of Las Tortillas in Rosemount. If your expecting the same food, you will be surprised. While there are a lot of Mex entrees, there are also Reubens, Turkey melts, Pizza and Burgers. My wife loves Las Tortillas. She got the Blacken Fish Tacos. The first thing she noticed was how different the spices were from Las Tortillas. Second she notice how good they tasted. I had a Mex twist on the American Burger. It is called Mexi Bacon Burger. It's a little messy, but oh so good. The seasoning was perfect, the burger was perfectly cooked and juicy. I also had the waffle fries. They were excellent, though I prefer some other spices than just a little salt. That would have made them perfect. Thanks go out to our server Jennifer and whoever did the cooking. The sound system is pretty darn good. We enjoyed the selection of music during our meal. The volume was so we could hear the music and also have a dinner conversation. Go now before the younger crowd discovers what a great place this would be to hang out. Also have a lot of TVs for the sport enthusiast.

We only became aware of Black Diamond because of their participation in the Bite of Burnsville. We had no knowledge that any eating facility was worthy of trying at Buck Hill. We walked in and upstairs to a true ski lodge where the tables and chairs were strong and built to withstand the errant ski boot. The tables were within the bar area but still was respectful of those there with families or older couples. it's not the fine dining experience but more of a pub experience. But that is where the pub similarity ends.
From the very beginning we were welcomed in by a server who really appreciated our being there. She was willing to answer all of our questions, make suggestions, and to customize our order. Once the food was delivered, she came back and was really interested in how we liked the food.
The food is creative Mexican and of high quality. I mean can you imagine a corned beef tostada? It was excellent; maybe a little scary to order but it is so creative and excellent. I had the smothered chimchanga (sp). this was impressive because other restaurants fill their chimichangas and burritos with "fill" and minimize the protein. not so at Black Diamond. The rice is served on the exterior which makes the interior flavor they intended, pop through.
The food and service is five-star - the setting is three-star but I'm waiting for summertime on the deck!

We really enjoy Black Diamond. The guacamole is excellent, the Friday taco bar is good and there are several other "hits" on the menu. The manager Kelvin is always friendly and attentive. In the Spring/Summer/Fall, the kids can go tubing on the Neveplast and stay in your sight while in the restaurant. It gets a little busy during ski season and parking can be tough on ski days, but it is worth it and provides a unique restaurant experience.
