The fried chicken with breadfruit and Mac n cheese was yummy. Keen to try the goat curry next time. Marlin and Sasha do a great job of running the place and make you feel at home. Space cakes are super moist, taste pretty good and...More

This was once owned and operated by a lovely Jamaican lady named Jenny, and the reopened place still bears her name. Jenny's legacy is good home cooking with fresh ingredients and this place continues that tradition. The escovich fish is our favorite, along with the...More

50 sq feet of Texas! What a fun little place! Sit outside and watch the activity on the street. Food was delicious (and prepared fairly quickly based on Jamaican time!) The service was friendly.

We heard the cakes were good at Jenny's and the rumors were true. $10 for a slice. That was plenty for my husband and I. You really don't need much at all. And be sure to give it time to work its magic (1-1.5 hours)....More

Started coming here in the 80's when it was run by Jenny and it still is a great place for breakfast or lunch. Reasonably priced with quick service...especially by Jamaican standards ;). Lot's of West End charm and surprises...including Country music. Enjoy!
