Seems a little touristy, but it was VERY yummy bbq. I went there every other day, and had something different each time. Try the festival! It's like a donut/hush puppy :)

This place is near the Hip Strip in Montego Bay but not a tourist trap. There is not really much atmosphere but the food is good and reasonable. You can see the guys grilling your meet on sticks, pick it up along with your sides and sit at picnic tables. There were mostly Jamaican patron eating or getting takeout and... More

You felt you were eating authentic Jamaican food the minute you walked in. With the open grill/pit, picnic tables set all around and food served in containers. I had the jerk pork and shrimp with rice& peas and it was a great meal... lots of flavor and recommend it for those looking for a true taste and feel of Jamaiaca!

This place is no frills but the jerk pork and/or chicken is amazing here. They don't have much to choose from for sides.

Fun and tasty experience. Jerk Chicken was very good, but cost US$26 for the chicken alone (no sides or drinks). This was a whole chicken chopped into little pieces and placed into two small foam containers. Another visitor commented that the prices appeared to have doubled. All prices were written on a chalk board, so it would not be surprising... More

The Hip Strip was a bit of a challenge for us to eat at because we were driving a rental car. Most of the restaurants on the strip do not have parking. But the Pork Pit has their own parking area right in front. The food was excellent and served very quick. Very reasonably priced, one of the most inexpensive... More

I ate here 5 out of the 7 days I was in Jamaica. Chicken and Pork are cooked on an open grill but the flames never touch the meat. Very flavorful and great value for the money you pay.

Really, really tasty pork and chicken hot off the grill. Very reasonably priced and very tasty! Seems to mostly be frequented by Westerners / group tours. Go early though, as we went at 19:30 one evening and they were all out of bammy, rice, corn and water.
