Food is outstanding! Oxtail was delicious, along with my rice and beans. They also have some other authentic items such s D&G cola, Ting and co co bread and cheese. If you want an authentic taste of the Carribean, look no further

Authentic Jamaican food. BYOB. Inexpensive with entrees topping at $19.50 including 2 side dishes. Chef will vary spice to taste. Owner / Chef is friendly and fastidious about cleanliness. Highly recommended.
