I had the chicken and my wife had a lobster. Somehow the lobster came off the grill cold. I asked if there was a restroom and was taken to the back where rice and such was being cooked in large pots over open wood fires. Third world sanitary conditions.

We stayed across the street from Best the the West & loved being so close to the great eats there. Nice sized to go portions. Chicken was moist & tender & coleslaw, beans & rice really hit the spot as the sides. Loved the sauce & the prices. You can even take some sauce home with you as he sells... More

Went there last week for the chicken. Have eaten there many times in the last 6 years. Last year was the best ever with a new chef. This year that chef is gone and so is a great product.

Jerk chicken is good and what they are know for but I wouldnt says its the absolute best in Negril.

Went to BITW the first night in Negril, as we were staying on the beach and wanted a quick jerk chicken dinner. We've eaten here numerous times in the past and were very disappointed in the product that we were served. Old and dried out, the chicken was obviously cooked hours earlier. It was about 8 pm and seemed to... More

This was by far the best jerk chicken I have had in Negril in years. The chicken was the most tenderest I have had and the sauce was to die for..heavenly! Going back for a jar of sauce before we leave. You have to try this awesome joint close to Margarittaville. Walking distance from most anywhere on beach!

Everyone has their opinion about the best jerk chicken, and I have to say Best in the West was high up there for me. The chicken was moist, with a perfectly spiced sauce. Great value for your money, and very easy to get to. Will definitely return.

Meaty and perfectly cooked jerk chicken and yummy sides is what we experienced. We would eat here in a heartbeat. Nice vibe and lighting after sunset and walkable from mid 7 mile beach.

The most amazing jerk chicken and jerk sauce. We ate here a couple of times during our stay. The food is economical and it's good. It lives up to its name.
