My boyfriend and I often travel from Clinton all the way to Lanham for this food... Pros: -He LOVES the food; I think it's pretty good. Chicken is tender and falls off the bone. Haven't tried the muffins... -Good amount of food. We usually have leftovers. Cons: -EXPENSIVE! -Long Waits; One for ordering and another for getting your food (I... More

Ive been going there for some time now and the service just gets worse and worse. I am a loyal customer but that changed when I went in there one day and I asked for Coco bread and jerk chicken. They didnt have the coco bread and my chicken was $9.54. You have to spend $10 in order to use... More

What complement the service bought one bottle of water and asked for a cup the cashier said in a rude manner that they have... More

Many different variety of muffins along with a full caribbean menu. The food is very tasty, loved the carrot cake muffin and they are huge! The muffins are a little pricey, but so worth it. Great food and great service.

They did not care if I wanted to buy anything, I felt the staff was not interested in providing service. I had to stop someone to ask for a menue.

Good curry chicken. Took home a carrot cake muffin, which lasted me a couple of days. Awesome flavors.

Just ate an amazing jerk chicken, chicken roti and chocolate chip muffin from the Muffin Man Carribean Cafe!  If you don't know about the Muffin Man, you need to know about him!!! After having not eaten here in four years, it's a pleasure to discover that this homestyle carribean food is still a gem and as delicious as I remembered.... More

If you are willing to put up with the attitude of the staff, the food is good. We had curry chicken, rice and peas and jerk chicken. They were not too spicy just right. The wait for the food was long but not longer than other similar places like Negril. However I like Negril much better. No attitude there.

I went to Muffin Man with a co-worker today and was pleasantly surprised by the tastiness of everything I had to eat. Looking at the menu, I did realize that the prices were a bit high, but I understood why the prices were high once I received my food (there was tons of it)! I could not finish my food,... More
