Pepper's Jerk Center has the most amazing, authentic jerk chicken. It has just the right amount of heat to it and it was juicy the way I like my chicken. So, if you are ever in Falmouth, Jamaica be sure to stop by Pepper's Jerk Center.

Recently had the opportunity to stop by and check out this spot and was so happy that we did. I had the jerk chicken and it was so good and the waitress was very sweet. There was another woman there named Bee who also worked there who would come and check on us regularly to ensure we didn't need anything.... More

Our tour guide brought us here for jerk chicken and a couple bottles of Red Stripe, and it was great. Authentic outdoor bar filled with locals but enough cruise ship passengers that it felt comfortable to visit as a tourist, too. One note-- as a tourist, expect to pay more than the locals. But that's not a surprise, and the... More

During my track thru here, we tried Jerk in 3 places and "each" presented a different take on it. We left Jamaica saying he get better Jerk chicken in the USA..........kinda sad, but true. Overall it was spicy - drinks were STRONG - and live music during our visit. That last one alone makes me happy :-)

This was a phenomenal restaurant! Recently went to Jamaica on a cruise with a family group of 10. Once we docked we asked the locals where the best jerk chicken was. They led us to Pepper's, and we were not disappointed. Juicy, tender chicken with just the right amount of spice! Also had the rice and peas and the plantains... More

We really wanted some authentic food while our ship ported in Falmouth, Jamaica. Elvis approached us...pushy but not too pushy (great personality). We had to walk several blocks to get there but it was worth it. Had the jerk chicken. The jerk sauce was yummy! The staff made us feel welcome & the food was great. Laid back atmosphere. No... More

A lot of people mentioned Peppers when we asked about jerk when our ship ported in Falmouth. They even had "employees" that would hang out outside the port gates and promote it. It was a little ways out into the town and further than I would have gone on my own if I had not known how to get there.... More

We really wanted some authentic food so we ventured to peppers, several people stopped and asked us if we wanted an escort to peppers, we thought this was strange but this is how they earn a few bucks? Or maybe a commission from peppers for bringing people in? We found it on our own. No prices on menu, we shared... More
