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

First and foremost, Patties is cheap. We each had 3 flavorful patties and the total bill came to $9. Some things to keep in mind--the patties come in only one flavor, so ordering a patty and something else probably makes for a better meal. Also, there are only 2 tables, so it works better to plan on a take-out meal.... More

This was a complete surprise. My father found this restaurant. He was a frequent traveler to Jamaica in the 60s and 70s and knows authentic patties. We ordered patties to go as well as rice. AMAZING! Dad said it was as close as you can get to the real patty without eating one on the beach! Low priced heaven!
