OMG the best peas and rice EVER. We enjoyed the BBQ chicken and the sauce was superb. The service was excellent.

The food was really good. We got the jerk chicken. However, it would have been better without all the bones.

Nice to see how they cook, very funny and this is a very country side restaurant to me, few tables outside and you have to order and pay first. Like a fast food to me, once a while is ok because they only have meats, no vegetables or others.

We ordered a little bit of everything, and were impressed by the Jerk Pork and Jerk Chicken. The place itself doesn't look like much, but the food was great.

Visited the Pork Pitt in July 2015. We walked down from our hotel El Greco. Great place, the day we went there were no queues, just a few locals eating. You get a lot for your money and was reasonably priced, chicken and pork were excellent. Highly recommended!

We at at the Pork Pit 3 times. It was within walking distance from where we were staying, reasonably priced and very tasty. We only ate the Jerk Chicken (we don't eat pork) and it was very good!

We ate here at least three days during our five day trip. Excellent jerk chicken, pork and fried plantains! Skip the festival, it isn't the best in Mo' Bay.

I ate here about 10 years ago and remembered it well. I have not had any chicken as good as this place and it is still just as good as it was 10 years ago. I could not remember the name, but my driver from Island Transfer and Tours, Byron knew exactly what I was talking about and took me... More

If I can't get my jerk chicken from the street vendors in MOBAY, then I head to the pork pit. Here you can purchase a variety of jerk meats, but I've only ordered the jerk chicken. While it's my belief that the best jerk chicken can only be purchased from the local street vendors, the Pork Pit serves the best... More

Chicken and port jerk were absolutely excellent. We were taken there by our taxi driver when we asked her for the best place to eat in Jamaica. She ate with us and we gave her a $100 tip! This place is perfect. Casual and so laid back - Jamaican style. I will never forget this place!
