9.19 Island Cuisine is located in the Harris Teeter shopping center off Capital Blvd in Wake Forest. It is a casual restaurant with plenty of parking. I liked that there was a menu on the outside window as that gave me some time to decide...what to try before ordering. You order at the front of the restaurant and can either do dine in or take out. I chose to do take out and went with the small jerk chicken. I debated ordering the large as it wasn't much more but am glad I didn't as the small was so much food. It came with two sides so I choose corn on the cob and the white rice. But I got two pieces of chicken a breast and a drumstick. Napkins and a fork were also included in my to go bag. I will definitely be back to try some of the other menu items and sides.More

Well done! The two large dinners I ordered were really excellent, had enough for a light lunch as well. Staff are all friendly and helpful. It's not Negrill but its really good food

I had read the reviews and kept seeing the pictures of this place. I finally went because I was on capital blvd today. The place is very very clean and the lady that took my order was great. BUT I MUST SAY THE FOOD WAS...NOT WHAT I THOUGHT OR READ ABOUT. I had brown stew chicken and it tasted more like bbq chicken. The cabbage was ok and my rice was bland. I had to use the Grace hot sauce to give it flavor. Very very very disappointed in my experience here. Might give it a try again but I’m still processing it..More

We ate our SUNDAY dinner and we each had different choices Donna's JERK SHRIMP were perfect with the Plantains & Mac 'n Cheese. My GOAT was very tasty with Callalo Greens & Cabbage/Carrot Duo. Everything was nicely spiced & prep was good. Serving size was...generous, spilling over the edge!More

While waiting for my order, the owner approached me with a chicken patty and introduced herself. She told me the origin of the name of 9.19 and chatted with me for a few minutes. The atmosphere is so friendly and the food is absolutely delicious!...It's not an extensive menu but there's plenty to please. Can't wait to sample more!More

i recently went to 919 island cuisine after wanting some Jerk Chicken rice and peas. I was greeted warmly by the owner which is a big deal for me because customer service is everything. I normally get Oxtails when I go to Jamaican restaurants because...the jerk chicken is very spicy and the sauce is never just right in my opinion. I am not Jamaican but I have been several times after visiting this establishment I have found a place where the jerk chicken has the right amount of spice the jerk sauce is so good and the rice and peas had great flavor and they give you a generous portion. I would highly recommend visiting here!More

My husband and myself have wanted to try out this place since it opened. We were excited that they offered whole fried red snapper(we had one while on a cruise on a island) I was not disappointed! The picketed veggies where still crunchy. Plantains were...perfect and the rice is to die for. I can not wait to come back. The only thing that I can possibly complain about was that while the snapper was fried, when they put the veggies on it, it tends to make the crispy skin a bit soggy. Other than that, it was perfect!More

We had a great meal and the owner was very generous to bring samples of soup, fruit drinks, and other items. Everything was amazing.

I ordered Jerk Chicken with yellow rice and mac & cheese and Jammin shrimp with plantains and callaloo. Everything was great. I ordered online which was easy and food was ready shorty after I arrived. The atmosphere seemed really nice and I would definitely go...there to sit down and eat. I plan to try the rest of the menu in the next couple weeks.More

Great food, very nice owner! Curry chicken, jerk chicken, yellow rice, plantains, corn bread, banana bread were all delicious! Big portions. If you haven’t been there yet, I suggest you give it a try!
