The chicken was fantastic!

A bit pricey in US dollars but the chicken was delicious!!! The pork was a bit dry, but still tasted fine. We also tried the festival and liked it as well. I guess the best compliment would be is If we visit Montego Bay again we would grab a bite at the Pork Pit.

Love this place. They slow cook the meat forever and it is delicious. The pork is the best, the chicken is good, nobody was a fan of the shrimp, and their ribs were incredible. Not the cleanest or the fanciest, and definitely not the coolest, but it is some good food!!!

Good food for very little money. You can sit outside and look at the Caribbean Sea, listen to reggae music and enjoy your meal. At times, there are ladies selling craft but they leave you alone if you're not interested.

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. :)

Not a particularly clean place, the tables were old and small. The big advantage is the food. Excellent Jerk Chicken and Pork. Pork is becoming rarer in JA referring to the Jamaican (sub) standards for the care of livestock. I go there with every trip to Montego Bay. Would not miss this for the world. I use the term ‘world’... More

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
