Yep, going to go back

While on the road I search for more local places. I loved the jerk chicken. The staff super nice. The only complaint would be it's kinda hard to find. But keep looking, it's worth it.

Having made 10 trips to Jamaica and eaten local (not resort) cooking, Jamaican Flavor is authentic. Everything we had was excellent, just like home cooked. The place was small but so are some of the best jerk shacks in the north coast of the island. Don't miss it.

A "Hole in the Wall" place, counter service, for Jamaica home cooking. We came about 7:15 PM on a Monday night (45 minutes before clsoing); and were told by the owner only plates availalbe were ox tail stew, and curry goat and curry chicken. Both the ox tail and curry goat were tasty and flavorable, but portions were small. Coupled... More

My family visited this establishment an hour and a half before closing after a long day of driving. When we entered the establishment the employee behind the counter was rude. We ordered an item off the menu and he told us they were not making that item because there is a time cut off even though they were not closing... More

While vacationing in Colorado Springs, we decided to try Jamaican Place because of all the great reviews. I ordered the Curry Chicken, but they were out of it, so they let me try the brown stew which was very good. My husband ordered the Spicy Pork. He gave me a taste, and I wish I had ordered it instead. It... More

I went here on a whim one evening, I was thoroughly impressed. I had the Jerked Chicken and Jamaican beef patties or pies (something like that). Their food was to die for!

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...
