Trip Advisor is one of the top sites for travelers to rate everything from hotels and restaurants to fast-food places, and Missoula, Montana received some national attention.

Senior PR Specialist with Trip Advisor, Elizabeth Monahan singled out Missoula based ‘Five on Black’ for a special honor.

“This week, Trip Advisor announced the winners of its annual ‘Travelers Choice Awards’ for restaurants and this year there were 75 winners across the U.S. in a couple of different categories,” said Monahan. “Most excitingly, we have ‘Five on Black’ at the North Higgins location as one of the best ‘fast casual’ restaurants in America.”

Monahan describes the ‘fast casual’ category.

“Fast casual is a new award category that we have this year, going to restaurants that offer high quality meals at a great value that really cater to folks on the go.”

Monahan outlined the reasons why ‘Five on Black’ scored so well with Trip Advisor respondents.

“Looking at some of the Trip Advisor reviews on the ‘Five on Black’ page, we see that they have about 250 reviews with a four and a half bubble rating out of five,” she said. “Some of the most common themes from the reviews that we’re seeing are that people love the rice bowls with the Brazilian flair, of course adding the collard greens and the cheese bread. It’s a really great fast-food restaurant where you’re able to get a healthy lunch.”

Monahan said she is personally based out of Boston, but if she makes it to Missoula, she’ll definitely stop in at ‘Five on Black’.

‘Five on Black’ was the only restaurant in Montana to make the Trip Advisor list this year.
