This is a hidden gem right here in Indianapolis. I've been frequenting this place over 30 years now. Do NOT go for the ambience. It's a tiny little hole in the wall you would never notice just driving by. Located in a small strip mall, tucked back in the corner. There are only 2 tiny booths for inside dining. There... More

Simple Jamaican food including beef, chicken and goat curry. The beef patties are the big deal. I have had them all in the states and many islands and these are better than most I have had. $1.25 each. The curries are $4.00. Beef Stew also. Don't bring a credit card as only cash is accepted.

Great cold weather food. Staff are nice and the menu is short, but it is good. You can dine in or carry out. They also have frozen patties you can buy and eat later.

Great food! Excellent prices! Very limited seating (two small booths). Just make sure you bring cash no cards accepted.

If you are sensitive to MSG, skip this place. Everything is loaded with MSG. Too bad that they cannot make their food as tasty without adding a neurotransmitter that fools taste buds.

You can either sit down (very limited seating) and have lunch, order to go, or buy patties (sack of 12 for about $11) out of the big freezer and eat them at home. I have only had the spicy and regular beef patties, but they are amazing. I would eat them everyday if I could!

I have been there three times now. For the most part, you should plan to carry out as there are only two rundown booths in the place. We were lucky enough to snag one as someone was leaving just as we got our food. For the entire time we were in the restaurant there was always a line. The service... More

I have only had the meat patties here, and that is all I really need. We get one while we are there because theyare so fresh and we grab two dozen to take home. The sauce is homemade also and a bit spicy. Henry is usually in the back rolling dough or making patties right there. This place is really... More

Seriously, what a good little find! The patties were so good, especially with the hot sauce! He had the goat stew, which he said was good. I had chicken curry, which was good. Needed a little more substance, but good. The service was great! Of course the shop is a little run down. They only have two tables. What can... More
