This month I helped my older son to move to Richmond, the Capital of the State of Virginia. He is attending Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) there, and he wanted to get a job over the summer until instruction starts in the academic world. By the way, did you know that we have only four Commonwealth States in the US? Go,... More

This was my first time at the Jerk Pit and I guarantee I will be back time and time again. The food was fresh and full of flavor. The atmosphere was just what I expected. It was a feeling of home with the real plates and excellent customer service. It's has made its way onto the weekly rotation.

Try the Jamaican jerk chicken sandwich it is the best I love the soft Hawaiian roll and the plantains are great. How in the world does this not have better reviews is all I'm wondering.

The neighborhood is a little rough but the food was good and the people were nice. I do not like experimenting with food so I got the pita and it was great. Bursting with flavor. Not somewhere to take a date but a good quick lunch place. I'd go back again

I picked up my food after leaving a day party at broadberry, and it was one of the worst decisions of my life. Everything was dry, and the plantains had no taste. If you're looking for authentic caribbean food, please try else where, because this place makes caribbean food look really bad.

The inside reminded me of Jamaica, because it was not much to look at but the food was great. I had the goat curry which was very tasty. The cabbage and plantains were good as well. It was a little pricey, but they did have specials at a reasonable price.

My meal was very tasty and I was given a generous portion. I love the coconut cake. Definitely a take-out place rather than dine-in.

Small joint across from the Children's Museum. Not enough selections if you are a big Jamaican food fan. The oxtail was full of flavor...better than expected. The curry chicken was just okay. They were out of beef patties. The coco bread was out of a bag... not fresh baked.

First, let me start of by saying thank God i had a goupon. If i didn't i would be MAD to waist my hard earned money.
