The service here was the only place in Montego Bay where we experience a rude and not caring attitude. The lady at the register was not helpful and didn't want us to take plastic cutlery to eat with. The man making the meat dropped a good portion of our meat on the floor AND did not give us the cut... More

We have been in Montego Bay 5 nights so far and have eaten here 3 times! Prices are great, food is delicious. Customer service is not their forté here but this is a must spot on your trip. It's just a unique set up and their jerk pork/chicken is tops. Also try the ripe plaintains.

The food was cool and the sweet bananas were great. Not sure why everything has to be put in these tiny plastic bags. Jerk Chicken was good.

This was by far the best Jerk Chicken I had in Jamaica and the Festival was the best as well definitely try it! I went there with a group from the hostel and everyone enjoyed it. To get full you have to pay approximately 10 $.

The jerk chicken was very tasty but the pork was dry. The service was cold/unfriendly. Prices were fairly reasonable.

This place is as real as it gets. The "pits" are long beds of coals that have hundreds of pieces of chicken and pork bbqing on them. The smell is worth the price. You can order in various sizes, 1/4, 1/2, 1 pound portions. we got 1/2 pound pork, 1/2 pound chicken, and some delicious shrimp. There are limited sides... More

Pork Pit is a hole in the wall. The grilling is done in the open over sugarcane bed. We tried pork, pork ribs, jerk chicken and sausage. Everything was fantastic. Pork was the best. Not to be missed!
