The best Jerk Chicken in Negril !!!! I try to keep away from the Restuarants but I love road side food. It is the best and the flavor better when you get food from the locals!!

We are annual visitors to Negril, and one of the first things we do is to eat at Ossie's. If you're looking for fancy, you might want to pass, but if you're looking for DELICIOUS Jerk Chicken or Pork, this is the place for you. The food is always fresh and hot. You can actually watch it come off of... More

Chicken is great so is pork. Love the rice and peas and the festival is decent! As always in Negril, leave a little time as there is no fast food. Soon come!

This is the most authentic Jamaican restaurant we've been to. The jerk pork and chicken were very different in taste, but both delicious. There's not much else to the place except the domino game that's been going on for thirty years, but the food was great.

Our hotel happened to be right next to Ossie's. It looked like a little shack but the smell from the kitchen was so enticing. We asked a couple who was there whether it was good. They said that they came back every year for it. We then had our lunch almost everyday there during our stay. The kids like the... More

Great chicken, nice crew at the stand. Nothing more than a good jerk shack - eat there or walk with your meal. Not overly spicy so add hot sauce if your looking for heat

Best little Jerk Shack in western Jamaica. EVERYBODY knows Ossie's ! ! Just ask a taxi driver who has the best Jerk Pork in Negril and all will agree that it is Ossie's. Great place to sit, eat, watch the world go by and join in a game of Jamaican dominoes. Be prepared to lose a few "J" as these... More
