This place seems to be more crowded at lunch than dinner, probably because it is cheap and casual. A few indoor tables plus picnic tables outdoors. Picnic tables could use a good cleaning. The pork and chicken is grilled in front of you. You pay indoors at the counter, grab your drinks, take your receipt to the bbque to pick... More

Stopped here for lunch and had a plate of their sausage, chicken and pork. Was very good and fresh off the grill. Could offer a few sauce choices.

This place is rustic and simple! It doesn't look very tempting from the outside, but they have probably the best Jerk Chicken in Montego Bay!

My husband and I ate there. Great food. Caribbean ambience. Music is a bit loud, however we sat in the garden area, which is tropical. Will return

Amazing food and was reasonably priced! Went almost every other night! It was about 100 yards away from the hotel I was staying at (Altamont West), and the aroma of the chicken, pork, and other meats being cooked was amazing. A must if you're staying in MBJ
