Great food at a local dive!

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... read 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.

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
