“Excellent food!”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Wanting to try Jerk Chicken and Jerk Pork, we went to The Pork Pit. Parking is at a premium but our taxi driver found a spot and stayed with us throughout lunch. The place is small and the lines long but the wait is more than worth it. Ordering is either 1/4, 1/2, or whole chicken/pork/sausage. Once you order and pay, you head outside with your receipt to the 'pit' where the food is being barbequed. The smell will make your mouth water. Dining is at picnic tables, which are usually full. I would make a special trip to The Pork Pit when in Montego Bay, to soak up some local culture and to eat some excellent food.

“Authentic Jamaican dining experience”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Jerk chicken and a couple of Red Stripes. Chicken was cooked right out in the open over an open flame. Very tasty. Walked right up and service was very quick. We enjoyed this place.

“Staff is uninterested, rude and not helpful.”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Staff is uninterested, rude and not helpful. Food is not as good as it used to be. Mostly bones in the jerk pork. No fish served anymore.

“More than you can eat.”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

The food was good, but it was so busy that it was hard to get an order in. The jerk chicken and the jerk pork was very tasty, the drink were small, free refills would have been nice.
