Fantastic Food

Stop in after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. The best ox tails I've had outside of Jamaica! Don't let the location stop you from enjoying this Jamaican treat.

This is an amazing and authentic Caribbean restaurant in the heart of Colo Springs. All that was missing was the Rasta man bringing by fresh lobsters for sale and the sound of the steel drums. The food here is good-- all of it-- the chicken, the pork, the Johnny Cakes, the rice and beans... nothing is bad. Portions are good... More

I love the food here and can't get enough of the beef patties. I come here as much as I can. My favorite is the Spicy jerk chicken and the ox tail.

My boyfriend and I prefer locally-owned, hole-in-the-wall restaurants so we were quite excited to try Jamaica Flavor and were thoroughly impressed by the entire experience. The people are very friendly and we were made to feel welcome beginning to end. I ordered jerk pork with cabbage and rice and my boyfriend ordered curry goat with plantains and rice. When our...

I hadn't been to the Jamaica Flavor restaurant for awhile, but was pleased to find out nothing had changed. The menu is composed of many traditional Jamaican foods, prepared by the owner to perfection. It is the only restaurant I would take my Jamaican friends to when they are homesick.

We stopped here as part of a food tour. We had plantains, coconut rice and jerk chicken. It was awesome. The place is laid back. The owner and her grandmother came out to meet us. They ewre very proud of what they prepare and it showed in the quality of the food. Would love to go back to try more... More

I went to Jamaica Flavor on the recommendation of a couple of locals. They were not wrong. I had the Jerk chicken and Curry Chicken, with cabbage and rice. The Jerked Chicken was spicy, but not blazing, The Curry chicken had lots of flavor and spices. After eating there, I needed a nap.

I thoroughly enjoyed my meal here. I have been to the other two Jamaican restaurants in town, and this one has the best overall flavors. I took a family member there for his birthday lunch. We are both from the east coast where there are an array of caribbean spots. He had the jerk chicken and I had the goat.... More

Totally unexpected! When traveling from New Mexico to Chicago we searched for a fast place to have lunch west of Colorado Springs that wasn't a chain. We found this spot in an odd little strip mall and doubtfully walked in. The proprietors were super welcoming, the dining area spotless and the food authentic. They have juicy jerk chicken with spicy... More

Very delicious food. Our family of four enjoyed four different dishes. The staff were friendly and provided great service. The location was a little difficult to find and the exterior is worn. However the interior was nice and cozy. Go there for the food. Regulars came in and out the whole time we were there.
