“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!
