“The Authentic JERK experience”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

although ive been here probably 20 times and the food can vary a little from day to day...this is the REAL Jerk experience...the smell entices you from the second you step out of car in the parking lot. The best Jerk meat is pork...it holds the flavour the best but the chicken and the fish are excellent and succulent options as well...watch out for the jerk sauce...its not for novice pepper tongues.

“Best eating in town”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Good rum, great atmosphere, Excellent jerk pork sausage, fish, chicken, doesn't get any better, they bring you out their own homemade sauce, little lizards walking around, you feel like your in a jungle.
