Best Food on The Hip Strip

Ate at The Pork Pit twice during our 4-Day stay, this place is legit, and hands-down the best food you will find on The Hip Strip. Jerk Pork and Chicken were both fantastic, the scotch bonnet sauce is very spicy and quite tasty. For two people a 1/4 pork, 1/4 chicken, 2 beers and a side of rice... read more

This was a great place to stop and try the local fare. The food was made to order and you could see the whole cooking process right in front our seats.

If you'r on the Hip Strip and looking for some budget lunch options - definiately worth a shot. We were there twice and both times it was a nice food for a reasonable price. You should try jerk shrimps which were delicious! Both pork and chicked were good :-)

We stayed on the hip strip and walked over to the Pork Pit for lunch one day. There was also a cruise ship group there. It's a neat food spot with tasty options. Apparently a little tip before they grill your food goes a long way!

If you are like my husband and I and like to get a slice of local cuisine when you're vacationing, look no further than The Pork Pit. While recently traveling to Montego Bay, we decided to take a day trip to the well trodden Hip Strip. After spending a few obligatory hours at Doctors Cove, we took the 1/2 mile... More

We heard this was a locals favorite, it does have an ocean view being right on Hip Strip, but the two times we tried it for lunch when we lived in MoBay they didn't have pork. Nuff said.

Loved the location and the pit area where they cooked the food. Had the chicken, shrimp and rice with a Red Stripe. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit.

A little place that our taxi driver took us too. Great jerk chicken and pork. The seating is primarily outside and everything is served on paper plates.
