“Great Jerk Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Nothing fancy but great food. Served in styrofoam containers with plastic utensils. Had jerk chicken and jerk pork combo along with beans and rice and plantains. More than I could eat - had to leave some rice. Felt like we were in Jamaica. Pleasant service. Food was excellent. Don't let the location scare you away. It is well worth a visit. You will not be disappointed. Lots of food for very little cost.

“The name says it all!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

The name says it all! I go to Jerk Machine simply for the jerk, especially the Jerk Pork. In South Florida, you can probably find a Jamaican spot on every corner, and although you can find decent brown stew, curry, etc at most of them, it is very difficult to find some good flavored jerk in this town. Jerk Machine's spicy, smokey jerk is among the most authentic tasting in South Florida and I really enjoy it.

Like most take out style restaurants, it can be a hit or miss depending on the time of day you go, so your best bet would be going around lunchtime versus later on in the day. Regardless, you will still get good food in a large portions at a decent price.

If you have ever been to a Jamaican restaurant, you would probably think that providing good service is not apart of the job, but everyone at Jerk Machine is actually really nice, helpful and willing to put on a smiling face.

In addition to grabbing a bit to eat, you have to try the Rum Pound Cake; it's really good!!!
