Back to our favorite laid back place to eat on the island. Amazing dinner for excellent price. Had the curry shrimp and husband had jerk chicken! Hot, fresh and so flavorful. Added a delicious made to order fruit smoothie and was in heaven! Even my kids said they never saw me finish a whole plate and so quick- lol. May... More

Staying on the North side you realize that your restaurant choices are limited. We drove into Bodden Town to get gas and was told about Rankin's from the lady at the station. Very typical carribean style food along with American style choices. My husband ordered bacon and eggs and coffee. I ordered the banana bread and a fruit smoothie. My... More

This is simply the best jerk chicken on the island. Had an owner of a fine restaurant tell me the same. There is only outside seating. Chickens will wander at your feet. But local or tourist, this is the standard by which others are judged. Bathrooms are available.

I went to here for lunch one day. They have outdoor and indoor eating. You can get a meal for under $10 (CI). one of the best values on the island. The food was very good as well. the chicken was moist.

Stopped here for jerk chicken and was underwhelmed. Jerk chicken was nothing to write about. Maybe the other options at this restaurant are better?

Great jerk chicken and sides at a GREAT price. The chicken was spicy and smoky. We ate there for breakfast as well on our last day and I wished I would have just ordered chicken!

I was disappointed with my Jerk Pork as half of it was fat and bones. Really sorry I did not try the chicken instead. Nice location along the road, with picnic tables to eat your food. Check out my pics and more information on Rankin's Jerk Pit on my blog at winenchocolate dot com

This is a cute place, but after Jamaican Jerked chicken.. this place is just ok. Still nice to try as I don't see a lot of jerked chicken in Cayman.

Had jerk chicken combo plate with rice and beans, potato salad, cucumber salad. Jerk chicken was very good, but more bones than meat. Jerk sauce side was very good. Paid $10 US for a large meal to go. I think the tourists may get the short end of the stick in meat selection versus the locals they feed everyday. Not... More

I ordered the jerk pork and literally 50% of my plate was chunks of fat. The rest of the plate was tasty, and the jerk sauce they give you was amazing. My husband had the jerk chicken and he said it was great.
