This was right across from our hotel and the food was delicious. They also make excellent pina coladas!

It's a hut, or a shack, seating maybe ten people around a circular bar, right next to the road. Everyone's outdoors. The traffic whips by not twenty-five feet away. You're under a thatched palm roof, on a bar stool. And the jerk chicken? It's the best, not just in the West but all over Jamaica. And pretty cheap, too.

Wow. Just WOW. I can't even put into words how AMAZING this chicken is. And the jerk sauce...mmmmm. You didn't even need to put any sauce on the meat, it was so tender/juicy/and flavorful without anything. We had one plate with the rice and one with the bread, I preferred the bread. Make sure you are not in a rush when you get there. They kept telling us 15 min for our food, which I learned means an hour in Jamaican time, lol. I could have eaten there every day and not gotten sick of it. We tried jerk chicken on Bourbon beach, at a night beach party, and at the riu and this was BY FAR the best. My only regret is that I didn't buy a bunch of bottles of their sauce!!!!!!!!!! They need a website so we can order it from the US!

This place is across from Coco La Palm....and if you blink you will miss it as you drive by. However, you have to stop here. After 15 yrs of visiting Negril, this place "rocks". The chicken is available quickly (5 minutes), but the shrimp may take 15 minutes. Normally, it is served with rice/beans, but they were out and we were served pound bread which was fine. The best part of the meal was the jerk sauce served on the side..."WOW"...awesome.

This is the best around for Jerk. We tried the chicken and the shrimp and they were both GREAT! It looks like just a little roadside stand, but the food is worth the stop and the small staff is very friendly. We walked for lunch daily.
