This is the type of place you love to support. The food is fabulous, and is prepared by a friendly and enthusiastic owner/chef. The jerk chicken dinner and jerk sandwiches are ridiculously good, and the side of rice and beans rounds out a great meal,...with the bean flavors being subtle versus overwhelming it. Grab some carryout, head to the beach, and cue the reggae -- what a great find.More

Fantastic quaint restaurant in South Yarmouth. Been visiting for years! Great food & it is also interesting to talk with Chef Shrimpy. Make sure to take home some homemade jerk sauce for your own enjoyment.

Take some braised chicken and pork, vegetables, rice, jerk sauce on the side, combine them into plates, burritos, and wraps in various combinations. Simple, but the flavors are complex and simply amazing. Chef Shrimpy is very good at his job.

Heard about this place and saw them on Phantom Gourmet, so I decided to give it a try. So glad I did! As soon as I walked in, I could smell the deliciousness! And Chef Shrimpy was so welcoming and friendly. The food is phenomenal....Pork melted in my mouth, the vegetables were so fresh & sweet, and love the rice & beans. Mmmm, the jerk sauce is soooo good! And the prices are really great, especially for all the food you get. I'll be eating here a lot more in the winter, as this is some awesome comfort food! Seriously, you gotta go here & try some of Shrimpy's creations!More

A terrific Jerk pork. This was my 3rd visit and maybe its not a date night spot, but if you're looking for a jerk with the fellas this is your spot.

We had a jerk chicken and jerk pork burritos in this small storefront, casual restaurant that only has a handful of tables. The meat was tasty and tender and it was a nice change from the traditional Cape Cod fried seafood type of restaurant.

Chef Shrimpy cooks your food for you in this small storefront. There are a few tables, but most take the food Togo. If you like “jerk” style food, you’ll love it here!!

Ate a late lunch early dinner here tonight and we had one chicken and one pork plate the container was filled with a ton of meat, mixed veggies and rice and beans. The meat was so nice and tender. It also came with a small...container of hot sauce which I could have easily used double of. Price was good for the huge amount of food you get especially so much meat you could eat this over two meals. Can’t wait to go back here soon !More
