This is definitely a "local" eat and judging by the cars coming and going, a local favourite. It is best to call ahead for your order to avoid prolong wait time.

I had lunch at Rankin's Jerk a few days ago and enjoyed my delicious jerk pork, rice and peas with tasty corn bread on the side. The atmosphere was relaxed and conducive to good conversation.

The jerk chicken and jerk pork were fantastic! Two people could have shared one order. They give you a lot of food.

We ate at a few Jerk Chicken spots while on vacation and this was by far the most delicious. The sauce is amazing.

What a great place to get the local flare. Had the jerk chicken only about $10 US. Comes with red beans and rice, cornbread, and slaw. So good! Only complaint was one of the staff members was unpleasant to say the least.
