This is one of the longest serving jerk shop in OCHO Rios. They also do a very good BBQ ribs and the venue really helps the appetite.

We always stop there to eat. Great food and great atmosphere. Best festivals and of course jerk pork and jerk chicken are great. We always take at least one dozen festival to go.

The food is local fare, which is what you want we you travel abroad to Jamaica. You must try the jerk burger it's seasoned perfectly. No mustard, ketchup needed. It comes with a signature barbeque sauce that's amazing. And of course the jerk chicken is...More

Very friendly, helpful, and courteous bartender. Ate at the bar after leaving Dunn's Falls only a few miles away. Inexpensive delicious lunch spot. Bathing suits and flip flops no problem

Was skeptical of this place being a tourist trap and not serving quality jerk products. How wrong I was, great food (the chicken especially) and amazing service. Highly recommended (just not on a cruise ship day!)
