I stopped at Jamaican Flavor for dinner with my family on a trip to Colorado Springs, and we loved it. We had the jerk pork and the brown stew chicken. Both were amazing! All sides were also excellent. My 7 year old son who is a foody, raved about it, and my 9 year old daughter, who is picky, actually... More

A place I have to go to every time I come to Colorado Springs. Small place, not made for large groups but there is a lot of take out. You can get your food Hot, Mild, etc. and if you get it hot the owner will bring out a towel and a pitcher of water when he says you sweating.... More

I chose this restaurant based on the excellent food reviews on Trip Advisor--the food was EXCELLENT, authentic Jamaican food. The owners are Jamaican, the food is fresh, and you get large portions. I have been to Jamaica 15 times, and this food tastes exactly like it does in Jamaica. Most of the food is cooked to order, so it may... More

You know you're in for a treat when you go to an ethnic restaurant and you see other people from that ethnicity eating there! you know what i mean, go to a Chinese restaurant, see Chinese people eating- that is always a good sign... and with that auspicious beginning, we arrive at this seemingly random restaurant, set in a strip...

Great food! My husband and I were looking for a good Jamaican restaurant, not just good Jamaican sandwiches for lunch, and this restaurant was more than expected. Variety of selections including meats and fish, food was well prepared, tasted so good, and it was so fun to try some Jamaican food that we had never eaten and hard to find.... More

Though this little place is on the far south side of town, it is definitely worth the drive. We had curry chicken and jerk chicken, both of which were perfect. With the jerk you can choose hot or mild. I chose hot and it certainly was! They were out of the patties but he assured me next time he would... More

The food is excellent at this local Jamaican restaurant!!! The owners are extremely friendly and willing to always make your food to your liking:D They also are willing to make you dishes that are not even on the menu if you pre-order your food if you have your own favorite Jamaican dish. The food quantity is perfect for filling your... More

The food was just perfect. My sister and I shared the brown chicken stew with cabbage and Jamaican rice, and the chicken curry with plantains and Jamaican rice. The flavors are amazing. The brown chicken was decedant and rich, and the chicken curry had lots of flavor. Each of these dishes cost $7.50 and they had a selection of Jamaican... More

This place has at least one thing going for it: the sauce on the jerk chicken is unbelievably good. The meat that lay under the sauce, however, was not so hot. They could have used a nice plump chicken breast, but instead they chose to serve a scrawny, bony cut of chicken. Atmosphere, unfortunately, is quite bare-bones. During my visit,... More
