“Good Jamaican food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

This is fun place to eat. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. The staff serves the sides from a steam bar so you get to see what you are getting. The place could use some fixing up but it did not take away from some very well seasoned and prepared Jamaican food. I felt the food was really Jamaican home style cooking.

“Authentic food from an authentic dude”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

I've been eating at Kelly's regularly since my freshman year (3 years ago), and it has yet to disappoint. The food is delicious, offering great choices at good prices. Kelly, the owner, is a great guy as well, always good to talk to and always making an effort to help out the community and student organizations. Definitely try this place out if you've never been before.
