“still the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

This was our third trip to Negril and it has become tradition to have our first dinner of the trip at Best in the West, and we invariably go back once or twice. It's a very short walk from our hotel (Nirvana on the beach).It's a small roadside place and the jerk is always good. Hot, moist and the sauce is delicious. I eat a lot of Jerk Chicken while in Jamaica and BITW stacks up against any of them.If it's busy you may wait a bit, but that's when it's the best, and chilling out with a few ice cold red stripes is no problem mon. I will definitely go back on my next trip

“Yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

It's about as big as the shed in your yard but the jerk is really good. My wife got the shrimp and it was bad so stick with the jerk, have a couple of red stripes and all is well.

“Burnt chicken bones!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

I think, being late at night, our visit was tarnished by fact of little left................ but what it was, was burnt chicken backs and such, accompanied with white stoggy bread. Them old oil barrels cut in half get a lot of people in buisness.
Give me a Weber any time!

“consistently good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We got take away from here recently and took it back to our room across the street. We got a half chicken and sliced bread for about US$10.which was plenty for the two of us to share after a long day of travelling. The jerk seasoning was as good as ever and is one of the best in the area. I am only sorry they use Styrofoam containers now instead of a paper plate with foil on top. Definitely stop by here for a great authentic meal, cooked right on the side of the road in a converted barrel. They used to just have a small bar area to eat at but now have a tented eating area with 3 or 4 tables. Never disappointing...
