From African restaurants to vegan food trucks, Fresno has nearly two dozen black-owned restaurants.
Although Fresnans love their chain restaurants, they also enjoy supporting local businesses, especially small family businesses.
In honor of Black History Month, we thought we’d take a look at Fresno-area restaurants with black owners. We also keep in mind that Black-owned businesses have long faced challenges such as historical underinvestment and systemic racism.
The businesses in our survey include restaurants, food trucks, bars and a brasserie. Some are small and operate under the radar. Others are heavyweights in Fresno’s dining scene.
If you feel like some familiar names are missing from the list, you might be right. The past few years have been tough for business, and several black-owned restaurants and food trucks have closed or relocated.
But we still have plenty here to cook great food.
