“Great local jerk chicken”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2010

Visited Jamaica during a business trip and traveled the whole island. while driving with some locals we decided to stop at one of the most popular spots with the locals. Casual atmosphere, open space, and great food. It is located close to a busy highway next to a gas station.
Noticed a lot of locals as well as tourists visiting the restaurant.
I tried their island famous jerk chicken but they also have other local jerk dishes.

“Locally owned & operated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2010

Jerky's is off the beaten path, but well worth the trip from the hip strip to Fairview Shopping Plaza. If you're hungry and in the mood for Jamaica food without a long wait, Jerky's is the place to go!

Jerky's is an open-air restaurant under a tropical thatched roof. Order your food at the counter, grab your ticket and head over to the food line where you'll be tantalized by the wafting sweet and smoky aroma of chicken or pork being jerked on the grill over a wood fire. Have yourself a side of soup, rice n peas, festival, bammy or roast yam and wash it all down with a refreshing coconut water or Dragon stout. I admit that I am addicted to the grilled conch and red bean soup. Prices are less than $10 for most meals, including beverages.

Clean washrooms, currency exchange, and DigiCel credit on site. ScotiaBank ATM and Texaco in the adjoining parking lot.

“Jerkies fun and reasonably priced spot in Mo Bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2009

This is over near Bogue and is a good spot to grab some jerk chicken or pork before going to Pier1. The prices are fairly reasonable in comparison to restaurants on the hip strip. The atmosphere is casual and there is generally a good mix of locals and tourists there.

Pros:
-There is an atm right next door at the gas station.
-Food is good and reasonably priced.
-Drinks are priced reasonably.
-Fun atmosphere.
-It is an open air facility under a tiki style roof which is nice when dining in the Caribbean.
Cons:
-Require a taxi ride from main tourist area of Mo Bay (hip strip).
-Depending on how busy it is waits can be long.
