Words cannot describe how good the food was. Authentic Jamaican food at a very low price. You know the food is good when locals eat there. Very generous portions!

Visited here with friends and truly enjoyed our first Jamaican jerk experience! The place was located near the popular hip-strip but felt authentic and was super delicious. It was recommended by our host and we enjoyed the food so much we returned for dinner the same day. We ordered the jerk chicken and jerk pork and teamed it with festival,... More

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
