Awesome jerk chicken

We made the rounds while in Negril looking for our favorite jerk chicken and De bar is it! Laid back atmosphere. Owner (whose brother owns 3 dives) cooks the chicken to perfection.

This was the best jerk chicken I have ever had. Redskin and Eddie are very friendly and accommodating. The chicken is served with yummy vegetables and rice. Be prepared to wait a little while for your food. We brought a game to play while we waited.

Had supper with a group of 10 or 12, and must say it is a true Jamaican experience. From the wood fire out back, to carting the coals in to cook on, to the laid back feeling, it was all good! Small place, usually one person doing it all, but the food and experience was worth it. Good food takes... More

While in Negril, De Bar has been one of our regular stops for the passed few years...and it's time to give it an honest review! It's true that you may have to wait a while for your food, but that's okay with us...part of the whole experience is kicking back with a couple drinks before your meal, and totally enjoying... More

Jerk chicken was juicy, smoky, and nicely charred. Sauce had some nice heat if you wanna turn it up. Best rice and peas in the west end. Atmosphere is laid back, but no view to speak of. Go for the food

Homestly beginning to question the validity of reviews on TA. Went to eddies early in the afternoon so there was no crowd. In fact only one other person the entire time we were there. Took over an hour for the jerk chicken and it was the worse jerk chicken we have had. Dried out and tasteless. Given there was no... More
