My wife and I ate lunch at around 1:00 p.m., and the food was wonderful. It was the best jerk chicken and jerk pork that we ate while in Mobay.

Not a bad jerk spot. Tasty but I had better...I better from dude selling jerk outta a drum on the side of the road but for being smack dab in the middle or MoBay's super touristy strip it was not bad.

We stopped here for some Jerk Pork which was amazing. We had some Chicken wings also which were very spicy but delicious. Not expensive but very very tasty.

I liked the jerk chicken. My husband LOVED their jerk pork. He is constantly searching for a recipe at home to match, with no luck.

This was our go to food stop for lunch and dinner. They have a large open area where they cook jerk chicken, pork, etc.. They didn't always have everything that was on the menu so you may need to ask first. Perfect place to stop on your way down to the hip strip for a cheap meal.

Went in the afternoon, so not many there, strange way of ordering food, buy your ticket at the counter and take to the cook who gives you a plate of whichever meat you've ordered. Food was nice but not exceptional, and lacking in atmosphere but that might have been down to the time of day but would still recommended giving... More

Being such a popular place I would expect the jerk to be alot better. I think that since so many tourist visit it's location that they have changed to flavor of the jerk to accommodate the "foreigners". Scotchies have much much much better jerk, I go to pork pit because it's in a convenient location but the food is not... More

I really wanted to like this place, but it was awful. And maybe they were having an off day, who knows? Red Stripe was lukewarm. The peas and rice had very little flavor, and very few peas. The plantains were pretty decent. BUT, the jerk chicken was absolutely beyond disgusting - it was still bloody in parts! There is no... More

This is a no frills place. The meats are cooked over meat grating using wood so you get a great smoke flavor. Think of this as Fast Food--Jerky Style.

We ate at several different restaurants in Montego Bay, but the Pork Pit is the only one we went to twice. Actually, it was three times. We loved it! Jerk chicken, jerk pork, and rice and beans were all delicious. We preferred the pork, because it is boneless. Wash it all down with a Ting! Authentic fire, great price ...... More
