“Fabulous food. Popular with tourists and locals!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

This is the real deal. Great jerked chicken and pork. The condiment sauce is really hot! Loved it. The meat is cooked in the open on coals. Neat! Highlight of our day!

“Best Jerk!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Have been eating here since i was a kid. Still the best as there has been much improvement lately. Good that they are keeping up the standard as i always look forward to stopping by for a bite when i am in Montego Bay.

“Tasty Jerk pork.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

My serving of jerk pork was very tasty. The rice and peas were a tad too dry and I was disappointed in the festival. It was a good value though. And, I think it was just an off chance thing but I'd give them another try.

“Eat where the locals eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Jerk chicken and pork is classic Jamaican fare, so eating here is a must. The value is excellent - even locals eat here, which tells you something about how affordable it is. You can get a generous portion of pork or chicken, rice and beans, bread, and a red stripe for the equivalent of a few US dollars - very tasty, fresh, and unbeatable value on the 'Hip Strip.'

“You can't jerk around with the jerk chicken”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

I recommend you eat what you find in season while in Jamaica. But the rice and peas with jerk chicken and salad is very good. Try also the ox tail stew and everything in pastry if is still there is fresh.
