“Pure jerk, heaven for the smell and taste !! The best pre-flight meal ever”
Reviewed March 8, 2010

We had a four delay announced for our flight out of MoBay that evening, but luckily we hadn't given in our rental car beforehand, so we were able to tour around and hang out for a while after checking in our heavy luggage. We noticed the Pork Pit so gave it a try.
Service is basic, with the orders indoors and the meat outside, but MAN the Jerk chicken and Jerk pork were so good!!!
The "chef" was surrounded with his corrugated iron smoke trays and didn't look too attractive, but forget the looks, just eat up the meat and wash it down with a Stripe.
My advice is to fill yourself up with a pound of Jerk and then forget those plastic plane meals.

“Looks can be deceiving”
Reviewed February 21, 2010

The looks of this "restaurant" can throw you off. Large quantities of meat on open grills sometimes covered by corrugated tin might make you turn and run, but the Jerk chicken and pork was GREAT!

“Great Jerk”
Reviewed February 6, 2010

This is a very good no frills jerk spot. I had the jerk pork. It was very good and not too spicy. Tip the cook and get the better cuts.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed January 31, 2010

Four of us ate here after reading reviews on tripadvisor. We travel to Jamaica regularly as my partner grew up there. We generally eat in small, local restaurants. We were staying over one night in Montego Bay before travelling over to St Elizabeth. It was a cool, wet night and we had to sit under cover. Most people were getting food to take away so restaurant tables were not busy.

Several items we tried to order were not available. Chicken was good but pork was overdone. The cost was reasonable. Probably wouldn't eat here again.
