Four of us were first time diners. Each ordered a different dish. The spice pansy ordered the tropical chicken (dark meat) , Jerk chicken (white meat) , Jerk Pork, and Jerk Meatloaf. The sides, rice and peas, veggie stir fry, stew peas in coconut milk,...plantains, potato salad and tossed salad. Everything was outstanding. I recommend trying one of their sauces too. The portion sizes were larger than average and the pricing is great for the quantity and quality served. Definitely coming back.More

Ok for quick bite... decent jerk flavor. Not a favorite but will go every now and then. Kind of pricey to me.

The food is good and well seasoned. I plan to go back to try other menu items. There's seating inside which is clean and comfortable.

We are here at least 1x a month! You can’t go wrong with a jerk roti extra cucumber and cheese with muy muy sauce... unless of course you don’t like spicy. Then you will want to stick to tropical chicken! Fresh patties are always great!

I’m not really sure what’s going on but every time I’ve eaten here I’ve gotten sick. My experience may not be indicative of the masses but it’s gotten so bad my husband refuses to let me eat here. I’ve tried the jerk chicken, jerk pork,...curry chicken, each time always with white rice. Sick, sick, sick! I get really bad stomach cramps and then food comes out at every exit. However, my husband who is a JA man all day loves it and I love me some him, which is one of the reasons I keep trying to eat this. Maybe it’s just time for a new spot. Lastly, the staff is friendly and helpful, I just can’t eat here.More

I love jerk food and this place did not let me down. As spicy food lover, the different spice levels were right up my alley. If you haven't tried it...you should definitely try it out.

When the restaurant first opened I was far from impressed. About a year later my sister mentioned to me how much she liked it. I decided to give them another chance and found out that they got it right....

Until Sunday December 9, 2018, my experience has been good. The food is delicious and the portions are plentiful. The manager on the other hand doesn't appreciate the request to change her gloves. I didn't get her name but she took offense when I requested...she change her gloves due to the fact she was dealing with money, credit cards and she was handling the food. Her response to my request was, "the other customers didn't mind." It's not a matter of what they mind, it's a matter of what's right. She continue to repeat this statement, as she spoke faster, and over me and she became more and more belligerent in my request. Needless to say, she didn't take off her gloves as a way of letting me know that she didn't care what I think or concern of food safety or hygiene. Yes, there was another customer waiting to pay for her food. The young man behind the counter removed his gloves because he knew I was right. But the Jerk of a manager, apparently had a point to prove. I will not be going back. Very disappointed!!!!!More

Half chicken special with rice and peas and veggie side. Chicken was well seasoned and juicy. Rice and peas well cooked perfectly. Veggies were delicious, wish I had more! Arrived around 5:30, not busy with fast order service but some type of hold up and...slowness at register. Definitely worth the trip and definitely going back for the salmon.More

Stopped by this place on our way to DC and it was pretty good. My husband and I shared the half chicken which was plenty of food! The chicken was cooked well and the rice was very buttery. Overall good price for the amount you...get. We also enjoyed the sweet hot sauce which had guava in it. Recommend that sauce.More

The young man who lived the “life” <outofhiscar> is by far the most pleasant server I have experienced in a while. The other fella is pretty good as well. They always know what I want (memory on point) “VeggieBowl”. Food is fresh. I enjoy this...feeling of comfort and satisfaction every week🤗More

Verry friendly staff. Affordable prices. Not your normal Jerk spot. This is a more American version of jerk. The food is ok but not great.

While standing in line undecided on what to order, a gentleman raved about the pork. So I decided to venture off and explore it for myself. It was indeed mouth watering and so tender! I ordered the pork, with brown gravy on top with veggies...and rice and beans. Sooo, sooo good!More

Been trying to get to this place and finally made it. Previously the issue was their closing time being different than what's listed online. We have went thinking we had time only to watch them close earlier. Call before you go and still arrive early...because we called this last time. We were told 10 pm closing but internet said 9. Sign on the door didn't help. But as far as the food it was good. The people were decent although seeing we were first time customers, the young girl could've done better explaining things for us when we asked about the food differences. I'll Definitely be because I like Caribbean food. Clean restaurant and accessible location.More

Friendly staff, good prices, great food...weird soda, but that’s besides the point. We were welcomed once, and about three days later came back, and they remembered us down to our names and what we ordered last time, it was crazy awesome for a place to...do that. Definitely will make a return trip.More
