Tasty local food!

Our driver took us to this spot for a taste of some local food. I had the jerk chicken and festivals and my wife had the curried goat with rice and beans.

Takes a while to get your order but its worth the wait. stick to the chicken as the pork and fish are only okay. The us dollar exchange here is pretty good. Their rice and beans and slaw is great too.

We told our driver, Gary, from Gary's Jamaican Taxi (look him up on tripadvisor!) we were hungry and wanted jerk chicken. He took us here and I got jerk chicken and festival. The food was so good! I love festival so much. It's a great stop to go to once you get out of the airport at Montego bay.

This is my favorite Jerk Place in Mo Bay, i have been to Scotchies and the Pork Pitt, both are very good but i love Jerkies. The Chicken is really, but for me the Pork is divine. The service is quick and it is an authentic Jamaican place, most of if not all of the customers are locals which says... More

Had we known that the gentleman who said he'd look after us was not doing "his thing" we wouldn't have listened to his "advice." Unfortunately, we sat and waited while several others who arrived after we placed our order, had their orders filled and eaten. The chicken was cold and there were many small pieces of bones throughout. A bit... More

I eat here every time I go to Jamaica. The food is great with a chill laid back atmosphere. It's my first stop after I leave the airport.

Upon our arrival in Montego Bay our driver recommended that we pick up a to go lunch at Jerky's. We weren't disappointed. Loved the jerk chicken and pork, and the sauces were delicious. We added rice and peas for a perfect lunch when we arrived at our villa.weren'twdisappointed.
