Top of the line Jerk!

Not a particularly clean place, the tables were old and small. The big advantage is the food. Excellent Jerk Chicken and Pork.

I decided to try the Pork Pit because I kept hearing about how good it was. The pork was too dry; I did not enjoy it. The festival was delicious. I still prefer the other jerk centre that will remain nameless. :)

We stopped here on a tour bus and it was touted as the best jerk chicken and pork ..... And they didn't disappoint. The meats were delicious!!! The sweet plain gains were also a treat. The other sides were disappointing. The rice & peas was dry and tasteless and the fries were bland. Lunch for the four of us (all... More

If you're looking for delicious, authentic Jamaican cuisine- including jerk chicken, jerk pork, rice & peas, bammy, plantain, spicy shrimp- this is the place to go. Best food we ate on our trip, HANDS DOWN!!!

If only our fast food was this good at home - we had some delicious jerk chicken & sausage fresh off the grill with plantain and washed down with some ice cold Red Stripe. All reasonably priced - spot on!

Well no words can express how awesome the food is here and very reasonable. If I could have I would have eaten here everyday! The pork, chicken and shrimp all cooked over a fire pit... that alone should make your mouth water. ... enough said because I'm getting hungry... below is a picture

Must. try. Pork Pit! We stopped by Pork Pit on our way out of Montego Bay and we were so pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. It's a fun, laid back and open air atmosphere. The jerk chicken, corn, roti, peas and rice, !!festival!!, ribs, and sausage were exceptional. It was some of the best bar-be-q I have... More

We always stop at the Pork Pit and get some jerk when we are in Montego Bay. They have the authentic sides too- rice and peas, bammy, etc.

Really nice meats and GREAT sides! Would have given 5 stars but pork was a bit dry. Still , it was super affordable. Wish I'd tried the chicken. The shrimp were spicy Nd hummer. Rice and peas delish especially with their green salsa. We had both green and ripe plantain and both were good. Festival bread was tasty. Try a... More
