“A great place to eat and enjoy some Jerk cooking.”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

What I liked about the Jerk Center is the all the prices are listed on a menu unlike many places in Jamaica. The food was fresh, tasty, and served in a clean, comfortable surrounding. I look forward to returning next time I am in St. Ann.

“Nice Food”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

The Jerk Pork was nice, although my friend found it to be a little salty. I found that the food could have been a little more. The festivals were really delicious. My dislike was that they gave us $90 JA dollars to $1 US, instead $100

“Great pit stop…”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

A really great way to chill after the bus and eat some awesome jerk chicken! Yum.

Was evening cool and lively on the friday night. Apparently we missed the concerts on the Saturday night. That would have been fun.

Note… Walking to the ATM machine in the centre was a bit confronting I will admit. Make sure you go in pairs.

And if you meet and elderly gent selling CDs say hi, he's cool.

“Hot Chicken and Craziness”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Here, you will get to see all the locals. They will try to get you to give them money for everything. They will dance and do acrobatics, sell beads, and make you pay to take a picture of them. The jerk chicken, as most anywhere in Jamaica, is amazing, and it is a must if you go to Jamaica at all...anywhere.

“Great Jerk Chicken”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

The Jerk Centre is on Da Costa Drive across the Street from Turtle River Park. The menu consists of chicken, pork, sweet potato fries, ribs, etc. We had the jerk chicken and pork. I loved the chicken. Crisp, not too spicy hot (you choose), not overcooked. My wife had the pork that was almost as good. We're not talking 5-star gourmet, just a great place to have jerk and a beer. Definitely better than Scotchies. Scotchies may have great branding, but the Jerk Centre has better food.
