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.

Rankins is one of my wife and my favorite places to eat when in Grand Cayman. Located in Boddentown on the south end of the island, the food is relatively cheap and is delicious and authentic local style. The jerked chicken, oxtail, curried goat, etc. are all amazing and the portions are extremely generous. The sides are as good as... More

We stopped at Rankin's on our way from the airport to the North Side. The Jerk Centre sits prominently on the main road with easy access. We ordered the chicken and pork meals. The meals came with meat, rice, beans, plantains, and slaw if memory serves. The jerk was out of this world! Great spice, authentic taste and a lot... More

This place is close to where we were staying so we gave it a try. Food was simple but awesome. Do not be put off by how it looks. It is a very clean place with great staff and wonderful food. Besides the jerk try the Conch burger excellent.

Rankin's was my choice to grab a local plate of jerk while on the island - I wasn't disappointed. The large jerk plate offered a breast and thigh, rice and beans, slaw, and potatoes. It was a huge lunch and probably one of the best values we found on Grand Cayman. The walk-up window service was fast and friendly. I... More
