Best jerk sauce ever

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... read 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.

I love this place! We have had the jerk chicken, rice and beans, cabbage and mac and cheese and it is all delicious! We added some of their medium heat jerk sauce and it was fabulous! We don't live near by but we are in the area every couple months and this is on our list of places we must... More

Three weeks ago I made the trip to Jamaica Sunrise and ordered a rack of ribs 12:30 in the afternoon, I was told they were out of ribs. Today I pulled up in the rain and ordered chicken breasts at 1:00 PM. I was told they had no chicken breasts. Considering these two items are the mainstays of the menu,... More

Jerk pulled port & grilled chicken are out of this world! Red beans and rice, and the best macaroni & cheese I've ever had. Have used them for catering several times - from 35 - 150 people - every time has been successful and clients have been completely satisfied.

This is by far some of the best chicken I've ever had. From the exterior, you wouldn't expect much, but it's a MUST TRY! The jerk chicken and all the sauces are fantastic. For about $8 you get a HUGE chicken breast, a side (Mac and cheese is amazing!) and a drink. There is definitely enough food to feed 2... More

What a surprise to find an authentic Jamaican Jerk joint in Maryville. We saw the bright colored building and pulled in to discover that the cook is from Negril Jamaica, where we had been just 1 week before on vacation. Too funny. The Jerked Pork and Chicken are excellent. The boiled cabbage is also nice (mild). The "medium" hot sauce... More

Absolutely a gem in disguise. Don't let the small drive-through atmosphere trick you into thinking this is a dive. The chicken wrap along with the Jamaican sauce is finger licking good. The baked mac & cheese is almost better than what you can cook at home. The fries are cooked to order and you get plenty. Definitely going by here... More

Cant stop thinking about the curried goat, served over the red beans and rice. That was crazy good! I've had the jerk chicken here many times before and it's always great, but the goat is my new fave.

Love this place. They make the best jamaican jerk sauce we've ever had. We buy it in jars to-go when we have parties & smoke chicken wings...great mac & cheese, fries, jerk chicken wrap, pulled pork sandwich, & ribs. Best to call ahead order. Is always busy when we stop in, but worth the wait!
