Ate two tomes

Just down the road from where we were staying it was so convenient. The jerk chicken and pork were outstanding. Moist and flavorful. We stopped two times and picked up food. Prices were reasonable. Very clean.

Rankin's got dat reeel Jamaicin food mon. Okay I'll be serious. We, the wife and I stopped by Rankin's jerk pit one night while visiting the Island. She wanted some real jerk. We enjoyed our meal and took some home to our resort to eat later-and we did. I had the fried chicken (different from American fried but delicious) she... More

We drove past this every day while staying in Bodden Town, and finally stopped for lunch near the end of our trip. Glad we did. The jerk chicken and sides were all delicious.

Great Jerk pork and chicken. Loved the sauce and awsome smothies. They had fresh chicken tenders, seemed like tempura batter. The kids loved them. There is inside and outside seeting. I was the only gringo in line and I will tell you all the locals were ordering the stew pork. I would definitely try that next time.

The best food on the island. Home cooked, fresh as there is a farm right next door. Really good meal.

Wife and I came here for dinner one night so we could go home, relax by the pool and eat. We waited for about 20 minutes while they made the food but it was delicious. We got the jerk chicken, fried chicken and the chicken wings. The chicken wings were good, but the jerk chicken was on of the better... More

I understand that jerk chicken is served with bones in it but this was just over the top. We ended up getting takeout to enjoy on the beach. Service was fast and friendly. The flavors were very tasty but my small serving size had barely any meat in it and what was in it was attached to tiny bones which... More

We ordered the jerk pork meat and took it back to our cottage and made sandwiches for dinner - to die for meat! Be cautious with the jerk sauce they offer - we mixed it with mayo and that was a great and heat tolerable taste. Did not ruin the great taste of the meat!

Picked up take out (jerk chicken) and huge portions and delicious! Reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend it for take out. No atmosphere.

We stopped here and had an excellent jerk chicken meal. I have to say I was expecting better because of the ranking by Trip Advisor. The best jerk chicken we have found is the little stand sort of across the road from the brewery. But this is very good. Prices are reasonable and they do have other things to choose... More
