Fresh and really really good!

Going on my 3rd visit in 2 months. Their food is amazing. You don't get much interaction from the employees, so it's a bit uncomfortable wanting to ask questions; especially if you dont know much about their food. Anyhoo, I tried the jerk chicken and gumbo because that's what I do know. I'm not... read more

Very convienant place next to my nail salon, I can just grab a bite to eat before or after my appt. the jerk chicken is tasty, not too spicy & I love their garlic shrimp. Each plate comes with plantains and cabbage. Very friendly staff and they have seating with tv for entertainment.

I absolutely Love this restaurant. The food was amazing. The food was authentic and cooked properly. The Food was Inexpensive too. They sell great Jamaican food...you won't be disappointed. Service was on point. If you are looking for great food, nice Caribbean atmosphere then go there!

They should be specific which island food they sell...waste of time.... just put up Jamaican flag. Not really "caribbean" food. Please rename to Jamaican and Haitian food.

The food here was amazing, but I don't think this hole-in-the-wall restaurant was prepared for a large party. Definitely order out from this place, but you won't regret it--every item on the menu was great and filling.

This restaurant was not what I was hoping for. Its very small bright room with 6-7 tables in a strip mall with walkup counter service. Which is not necessarilly a bad thing but has a very fast food, hole in the wall feel. The employee was friendly and even gave us a sample when we were inquiring about the menu... More

The food is great. The goat soup is a must and their Gumbo is so great.The jerk chicken taste as if I was back in Jamacia. The $5.00 Fridays are great. Very friendly staff each time I have visited. Ava is #1 in my boo

This was our first visit to this restaurant and it was great. We had the curry chicken and goat. The pepper sauce was great. Atmosphere was nice and they have a television on for those who like to watch it. I saw they also have a new restaurant on Ft. Hood Street...I plan to take a peek at it also.... More

This is the best food I ever consumed in Killeen. Service was amazing for such a small establishment, I will definitely go back no doubt about it.
