Great Jamaican

Some of the best ribs that I have ever eaten. Not spicy like I've had in Jamaica but that's probably toned down for the uninitiated. Red beans and rice was fantastic also. They sure are not stingy with the portions either. You definitely get your monies worth. Will definitely be back.

We order lunch here quite often, the sides are excellent and their Chicken breast lunch meal is an office favorite. The only negative is that they are a small operation and when they get busy they stop answering call in orders. Which is a bummer because the food and service are always good.

Had to go back for some more authentic Jamaican food. Always prepared well just like in the islands. The jerk seasoning is on the money and the chicken I had this visit was cooked just right. I don't see how they get it all right in such a small location.

The food is fabulous at this local dive. The prices are very reasonable and there are numerous selections to choose from - all good. My only complaint......they're closed on Sundays. Of course, I always crave some jerk chicken on Sunday when I can't have it! My husband and I like to pick our food up and take it to the... More

I eat here as often as I can and it's always amazing! The jerk chicken breast and 1/4 chicken are all I ever get but I'm confident everything else is equally delicious. The hot jerk sauce is possible one of the best things ever and a little goes a loooong way. The red beans and rice are always perfect, never... More

I whole-heartedly believe this is the best place to eat in town. I've eaten here at least once a month for many years now. I can count on one hand how many times the food hasn't been perfect. The person manning the grill has some serious skills. In fact, I beleive they have the best barbeque in town! Their ribs... More

Went and got the curry goat and it was ok, not like I'm use to from JA, went back and got the Jerk Chicken and had to go get a lot more sauce to add. Guess I'm spoil, coming from JA. On a whole, it was ok, will try it again when I go back to Knoxville.

We love this place. Amazing ribs, jerk chicken, wraps, & pulled pork. Sides are fabulous too. Best fries & mac & cheese around. Try the coco bread too. Service is slow (but always very friendly) so best to call ahead & get to-go. It is worth the wait! This place a drive thru with picnic tables out back. We eat... More

Taste of Jamaica right here in Blount County. Several visits have me coming back for more. The Ribs were very good, the chick was cooked perfectly. The owner does an amazing job in such a small place.
