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.

Nice little place and great food. My wife and I have been to Jamaica several times, and we are always looking for a good Jamaican food place. Just wish I lived in the area so I could eat there more often. And good Jamaican food isn't the same without a COLD Red Stripe, and it was cold.

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
