Authentic jerk chicken

Really good food. I did a little shopping at the shops next door. We went for lunch. Not sure I would venture here at night.

Jerk chicken was very good here. Lots of locals were eating there, always a good sign. Went there on a privately arranged tour and we were glad our guide took us here.

The cab driver who took us on a tour of the island stopped here for lunch as we said we wanted some jerk chicken, rice and peas. It’s effectively a fast food joint but the food was delicious. For $5 we had a hearty helping of chicken, rice and peas with some tongue tingling hot sauce. Worth a visit.

called in and ordered 2 Escovitch fish, 4 festival, 2 fries, 1/4 chicken, 2 OJs, stressed the Escovitch... Sanjay gave them the wrong order. When we got there the fish was steamed instead So I told the cashier that's not what we ordered. She started screwing and said "items done to order cannot be refunded or exchanged." For a minute...

Jerky's is decent food. Again, another jerk joint without ribs available though on the menu. The food is good. Not great, but good.

The food was good, price wasn't bad! People working there weren't the nicest people, but they weren't horrible

Nothing fancy but good food; 1/2 lb of jerk pork with rice/peas and cold beer. Order at the counter, pay, wait for your number to be called, can watch the cook put your order together right off the hot grate. Covered patio type seating.

Our taxi driver took us here on our way back from Negril. Place is packed with locals so you know it's good. Very inexpensive, excellent food - I had jerk chicken with rice & peas. Get it with extra jerk sauce, not really hot but full of flavor It really doesn't get better than this.

I wanted to go to Scotchies my entire trip, but as soon as we stopped here, I forgot all about Scotchies. (I still have never been to scotchies, so this is not saying Jerkies is better). I had breakfast here, instead of at our resort. For 350 JMD (3 USD) I got the brown stew chicken. I thought it was... More
