Sure the food is as advertised and more. If that's all you're interested in, then go eat. But there's a bigger picture in Key West taking more time than less to sink in for travelers in particular, locals no so much. The Key West Genre likens itself to a third world country within the United States, chickens running around the... More

What a lunch that we had! Small place where we ordered at a counter and they delivered to us outside. Spicy, tasty bowl of chicken, rice, beans, sour cream, jalapeños and corn chips. Feral chickens calling from next door. A wonderful experience. Definitely worth the visit.

First it's not a sit down restaurant. Second all seatings are outdoor, you might be in the sun. Third there might be wild chicken walking around you like the whole island. The food was delicious. The corn on the cob was fantastic. We had West Caribbean Bowl and Rice and bean Trio and enjoyed them thoroughly.

Not much to look at and generally no hype but these people are consistent and quality. Recipes are solid and super flavorful. Latin and Caribbean inspired with good portions and fair pricing for what you get. I love the grilled Chicken thigh , the sandwiches are fantastic. The corn is a sleeper that is packed with flavor. If you have... More

Enjoyed a great lunch here while in town for the day on a cruise. My wife and I shared some fire roasted corn and the Caribbean Roast sandwich. One sandwich was plenty for both of us and it was delicious. My wife thought the fire roasted corn was one of the best things she's ever had. As others have noted,... More

This place lives up to the hype. It is fresh and authentic food. The fish was lightly fried and so tasty . Off the beaten path, which is where I prefer to dine when in key west.

The Caribbean flavors are to die for. I had the palomillo steak sandwich. The grilled corn on the cob is also wonderful. The seating at this converted gas station is not the greatest but the service at the counter is great and they are very friendly. The flavors and spices are really special. They are closed on some days they... More

This is a order and carry out spot. No atmosphere but that is not why you are here. Order the food and eat outside or take out. That being said the food is great.
